More Photos Leak of the Moto X, Shows Off the White and Black

Moto X

Over the weekend, additional photos hit the web, showing more variations of the Moto X device. The last good picture gallery we posted was of Motorola’s more colorful options for buyers, but here you will see the “plain” white and black variants. 

The white device does appear to have some type of rough texture on its backside, while the black looks to come in both a glossy finish and matte tone. As we already know though, these are just two of probably many colors Moto will offer for this device.

As a refresh on specs, the device is rumored to come with a 4.3″ 720p display, 10MP camera, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and come running Android 4.2.2. It will be your fully customizable mid-range smartphone.

Either way, once the device is finally announced and made public, let’s try to act surprised.

    Based off the 6th picture… its Dual-Sim?

    • bananatroll

      The international version sold in europe/asia probably will be. US version, I highly doubt it, unless motorola and google put some good arguments to the carriers and the FCC.

  • Joshua Bailey

    Listen…as long as the Moto X has nice performance like the Nexus 4, killer battery life, the customizations that have been reported and timely updates, I will purchase 2 of these when they come out as both my wife and I are due for upgrades.

    Devices are about user experience nowadays. I don’t need (I want it) quad core, 1080p on a 5″ device. I know many will say that isn’t the reason they are buying into the Moto X, but if Moto can remove all of the lag, give me quick updates and optimize the crap out of the S4, I will be more than happy. It would be amazing to get past my lunch break without having to charge my GNex as well.

    Nice screen
    Fast enough processor
    Great price
    MAXX battery
    Moto’s A+ build quality

    This adds up to a really nice consumer device. You won’t be able to run any governments with it, but who has time for that anyways.

    • JustH

      I absolutely agree with you, my friend. Can we REALLY see the difference between 1080 and 720? Maaaaaaybe. Performance differences? All depends on how the manufacter works it. And I’m on a GNex (like you, VZW with mine) and I can’t get through half a day of classes without it near death

  • bananatroll

    Even more good news from a source who has been spot on thus far:


  • bananatroll

    whats up with the super texturing on the white one?

  • michael acosta

    My uncle actually worked on this he says that he thinks people will be quite impressed. So here’s hoping I suppose

    • dtraini30

      Tell your Uncle to stop by for a Q&A! :p

      • michael acosta

        I bet he would love to do something like that. Sadly I don’t think Google or moto would hah

  • Scott Webber

    If there is a larger “hero” version coming out, then why are there zero leaks of it?

  • needa

    where is the usb going to be? moto has such a bad habit of putting the usb in every place but the bottom, which is where it should be.

    this phone looks rock solid!

    • zurginator

      There is a visible notch for it in the bottom of the casing.

    • harle

      At the bottom, shown in the leaked video below.

      • needa

        yah just looking at the video. thanks.

  • Alan Fortte

    You guys must remember, that these specs are rumored and not confirmed. For all we know, we might get slapped in the face with a octa-core processor. I’m just saying…

  • Ben Davis

    This is shaping up to be a slightly boosted Razr M with a much better camera, which is precisely what I want:-)

    I would be thrilled if it had:

    *64GB of internal storage
    *Razr M or better battery life
    *Completely stock OS w/ fast updates

  • Shaunwin

    Is it me, or do the white and black look like completely different phones?

    • MacNificent

      I believe it is two different models. And I also believe we ave no idea what Mootle is about to our minds with these new Xfons… I’m excited!

  • Elliot Kotis

    Awwwwww Moto, please make a X Phone top range! :'(

  • FelisLachesis

    Ok, I’m getting confused. Is this the Moto X, which is the midranger, and the XFON is the new flagship coming out this fall, or vice versa? I keep seeing the terms flip-flopped all over this site.

    • It’s not this site, the leaks are being flip flopped. It was the X FON until D11 when Dennis Woodside confirmed the name was the Moto X. Its the same phone.

    • Bionic

      mid range

      • dtraini30

        Ugh, then when is this “hero” device coming out?

        • Bionic

          Sarge last said October 14th, but could be sooner

          • J

            FIngers crossed for sooner.

        • Bionic

          The hero is supposed to look almost exactly like this one, but bigger screen and metal materials

          • dtraini30

            You just answered my next question! Lol I assume a price bump too, fine by me! Just one thing.. what is that phone (bigger/metal) going to be called? What is the name of the phone in this DL post?

          • Bionic

            every carriers has a choice in naming, that still needs to be finalized. So my short answer is, i dunno yet.

          • dtraini30

            Hmm ok understandable. Should we soon expect some info straight from Moto regarding the mid-range phone? PS, we should definitely have more conversations :p

          • Bionic

            Yes i think sometime this month if not the 10th or 11th. No guarantee tho

          • dtraini30

            That is what I was thinking too, thanks for the info!

      • NexusPhan69

        Sarge tells me that the circle around the moto logo in the top left of the Moto X is a “code” that corresponds to which custom version you have. I thought that was very cool/clever. What do you think?

      • bananatroll

        this is 4.65 AMOLED 720P

        Hero is 5″ 1080P AMOLED…

        I am ready to ditch my non-stock razr hd, and I dont wanna go any larger in the size department. So, I’ll happily slap down my $300 plus tax for this from the Play store in Pittsburgh Steelers Black/yellow.

        As long as the camera, messaging, launcher, are stock android I’ll bite!

        Disabling the little motorola add on apps is a piece of cake.

  • NexusPhan69

    Hmmm. The speaker is on the other side from all the previous leaks. I wonder why.

    • Josh C

      Good catch. I wonder if the Dual-SIM feature was added after the original leaks and the speaker had to be relocated?

  • Cody

    Why are all of these leaks coming from France?

  • BRIM

    “M” for mediocre.

  • dtraini30

    WHOA WHOA WHOA is that a dual-SIM device?!

  • Shane Redman

    I’ll settle for a mid-range phone w/ great battery and next to AOSP to get me through the day if I have the upgraded N7…VZW GNex has done me well, though

  • dtraini30

    Here’s a thought… lets put all of these pieces together and turn on the phone and maybe have a video walkthrough of the phone? :p

    • NexusPhan69

      I’m really sick of reposting this over and over. It’s been about there for a long time.

      • dtraini30

        Alright alright haha

        • NexusPhan69

          It’s not your fault. One of these rumors sites needs to post this already! It’s a 4 minutes video of the Moto X and it’s got no press.

          • MikeCiggy

            Did you hit up the DroidLife tip line with a subject of MOTO X ON VIDEO!!! …?

          • NexusPhan69

            Yes, actaully. A few months ago. Had a nice conversation with Kellex. Then he didn’t post the video. Haha

          • rando

            that video was posted on here a while ago

          • NexusPhan69

            Was it really? I stumbled upon it randomly just browsing youtube for phones. He should re-post it. It probably meant nothing back then, but it sure does now.

      • Daeshaun Griffiths

        i’ll watch it if u translate it.

        • NexusPhan69

          It has driven me insane that I can’t understand him. I just want to know already.

          • Daeshaun Griffiths

            The differences in the phone he has vs what these pics show are killing me lol.

          • NexusPhan69

            Ya these newest leaks don’t seem to match up with all of the previous ones. Speaker switched sides. Dual SIMS? The image in the last DL post about the clear pixel is actually a screen grab from this video. I’m not sure what these newest leaks are anymore. Maybe an international variant?

          • Greg

            I like the volume slider instead of buttons. It would be interesting to try. It might pose some problems with phone case or maybe not.

          • Flat_Stanley

            See my reply above for a version with subtitles

      • Flat_Stanley

        Here’s a version with subtitles:


        • NexusPhan69

          Dude. THANK YOU!

  • KittenMeRightMeow

    Can I just please have a 1080p, quad core, 4.5in+ screen on Verizon? I love my Galaxy Nexus but I am very ready for something new. And I’m not one of those people that will jump the ship from VZ. Coverage is great.

    • Eric R.

      Yeah you’ve been able to for 8 months, its called the DROID DNA. I have it but if you don’t like sense…

      • Diablo81588

        Or mediocre battery life.

        • nick rigsby

          He stated he has the g-nex, that is also mediocre battery life.

          • Robert Macri

            Edit: Horrible battery life on the GNEX, but otherwise it has served me well until 4.2 which has done nothing but lag. I’m hoping one of these Moto offerings will be worthy of my upgrade.

        • Scott Webber

          Everyone I know who has DNA including myself thinks it has fantastic battery life. It’s far superior to the GNex

        • seryozha

          I have a DNA and get what i would consider great battery life. I’m not running stock though….

    • Todd

      My Galaxy S4 is screaming at your post. 1080P, quad core, 5″ screen, good battery life (with the ability to exchange fresh batteries). I love my S4.

    • Dominick White

      Droid dna, galaxy s4 and soon the HTC one…. .. So take a pick unless you talking about wanting a 1080p moto phone on Verizon

    • Trueblue711

      Like someone else said, the GS4 sounds like a great fit for you. Perhaps even the Google Play edition if you don’t like TouchWiz.

      • bananatroll

        no google play edition on verizon EVER. SOL to stock google lovers…

        Verizon is to blame for this, as they hate unmodified software on their android devices.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    wait. its dual sim?

  • tyguy829

    Since the sim tray(s???) are on the side, I’m thinking no removable battery 🙁

  • shecalledmejay

    Why does it seem so much like a HTC phone

  • Trevor

    One picture of the black casing shows two sim slots. That’s odd. Unless some carriers would use one and they’d just block the other and vice versa for other carriers. That would be kinda weird though.

  • Greg Morgan

    Any thoughts as to why there are 2 SIM trays?

    • NexusPhan69

      One for SIM one for SD card maybe?

  • chaoslimits

    If the battery lasts through a day of heavy usage, this may be my next phone. Not making another Galaxy Nexus mistake.

    • sc4fpse

      This. This. A million times this.

    • Michael

      I bought the mugen 3900 mAh and still couldn’t get through the day. I ended up buying the Razr Maxx (I also brome the Screen on the Gnex) and love the battery life it has! Not so much the bootloader, it has caused many headaches!

      • Chris Schmucker

        Curiosity question. How many hours of screen-on time did you get with the 3900mAh battery? What did you do to kill the battery in less than a day?

        • NexusPhan69

          Its a low quality battery. I don’t care what mAh it advertises it was a POS. I ditched it quickly.
          I’m now an anker fan. I have the 2200mAh slim. It’s as thin as the original battery. I have two of those (came with a wall charger) And I have never not made it through an entire day.

          • nate

            This pisses me off. I ended up buying the Hyperion two batteries and charger, and one of the batteries quit working right after the 90 days and neither ever came close to matching the battery life of the stock Samsung battery… Really should have gone with anker I guess. Oh well. I just bought another OEM Samsung battery so hopefully it will be OK lol.

          • NexusPhan69

            Anker really surprised me. For $20 I gave it a shot and figured I was throwing my money away. 6 months later I couldn’t be happier.

        • Michael

          It’s been awhile, so I’m not sure! It was definitely a lot better than the Samsung Extended Battery.Maybe 8 hours of use. But getting up at 7-8 and being in class or at work until 5 was not what I wanted/needed. This also depended on my use.

        • BobbyG

          Using the Hyperion 3800 mAh I’ve gotten around 6 hours of on screen time. This was while watching movies on the GNex

      • TheRobotCow

        Damn that blows. I was going to get this battery too.

      • Michael
      • prittjr

        I got the ZeroLemon battery…the extra size made me nervous, but the cheap price got me to get it with the intention of only using it for special occasions. But, those 5900mAh quickly convinced me to keep it on 24/7.

    • Tweekex

      Mine had no problem lasting an entire day..

    • Jarren

      This! Any phone that can last me from about 6am until midnight is NOT mid-range IMO!

    • Gnex

      I honestly wonder how many people here have a galaxy nexus.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    +1, i wanna know if theres a volume rocker and power button. I don’t see cutouts in the casing.
