Motorola gave everyone a glimpse of its upcoming Moto X in December, but unofficial photos of the device have surfaced.
(CCM) — The leaked images were posted on Chinese mobile site cnBeta and Google+, revealing an all-metal design for the upcoming smartphone. The front of the device is strikingly similar to Samsung's Galaxy devices, with the addition of a square-shaped home button. The back of the smartphone features a massive, protruding camera module and a dual speaker setup. While many believed that these leaked images were all of one device, —the upcoming Moto X — reliable tipster Evan Blass has another theory. "PSA: These are actually two different handsets," tweeted Blass, with a link to hellomotoHK's Google+ photos of the device. Blass promised to explain this claim on Monday, but has yet to do so.
While these new leaks allowed another glimpse at the upcoming Moto X, they did not reveal any new details about its specifications. Previous reports suggested that the Moto X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and runs Android 6.0.1. The device is also reported to come in a "Droid" variant, specifically for Verizon, with a rainbow skin. Motorola has not yet commented on these claims, and neither has its parent company, Lenovo. Motorola is set to debut new devices on June 9th, though it is unclear if the Moto X (2016) and its rumored sibling will be a part of this launch. Motorola may choose to unveil its next-generation Moto G next month, alone or alongside the high-end Moto X.
