Motorola Moto X: First Press Shots

Invitations for the launch presentation just went out a few hours ago, but you won’t have to wait until August 1st to check out the mightily-hyped Motorola Moto X (or is it moto x?) Designed not as an early adopter’s phone, but instead as an everyman phone, the X is the new Motorola’s first attempt to push some serious volume under new-ish owner Google. With a mid-range spec-sheet, but a decked-out feature set — and heavy customizability options — Moto X hopes to win over a market saturated with a host of Galaxies and Optumi.

Expected to hit retail near the end of the month, on multiple US carriers at extremely competitive price points, Moto X is surely just the first of many Google-inspired collaborations — with future handsets destined to compete in the high end as well. Until that day, Motorola will always have a plethora of DROIDs with cutting edge features on offer; the latest batch of these popular Verizon devices is scheduled to be revealed in just a few days’ time.

    That is sexy. If only it was 5 inch screen

    • cas_e says:

      No thanks! I’m glad it’s 4.7, and smaller than my Galaxy Nexus. Perfect size.

      • Android Saves says:

        Ahhh I thought it was 4.5 for some reason. 4.5 minus the menu bar is getting too small for me.

        • cas_e says:

          I think there were various rumours, but the guy who made the video measured it and took a picture and it was 4.7 including the on-screen buttons.

        • SymonDT says:

          the @evleaks guy says it has a 4.5 inch display ?

          • blackagent says:

            4.3 is perfect. But 4.5 is good too. We shouldn’t carry big screen and heavy smartphones anymore. We need thinner and smaller ones. This is why iPhone sells more… “The Design” factor.

      you are mad

    • AK says:

      If only there was a battery to last calls, GPS use, 3/4G, browsing and and music streaming for a day!

      • John-Smith says:

        It’s motorola so, we might see a big battery in this thing. Specs haven’t been released yet.

        • Richard says:

          i don’t even think the battery comes off of the Moto one X or whatever the one out now is called, they look the same ass my friend just bought one for $49 at verizon, she said sales guy told her they needed to move them Fast, well this explains it!

      • TS says:

        That’s the rumor behind the mid end specs. The theory is that they want to push a device that can last at least a day in most situations.

        • AK says:

          If that’s so then I will throw my Galaxy Nexus in dustbin[1] and set aside my iPlans and will happily get it from USA even though Motorola has officially exited Indian markets.

          [1]Actually I’ll sell it or give it to friend or family.

        • Simon says:

          Even the S4 lasts 2 days of rather heavy beating. I bet this should last longer, although 2 Krait cores are less power efficient than 4 Krait 300 cores (race to idle on 2 older Kraits takes longer and chipset drain is not much lower).

      • jh123416 says:

        The Verge backtracked on the small battery.

  2. Daveydog says:

    So is the general consensus now that this will be in the 300 range off contract?

  3. Tohe says:

    Looking good.

  4. I wish they had changed up the status bar, too. Just as transparant as the navigation buttons, but with more of a greyish icon colors versus the cold and geeky Jelly bean blue color.

    • cochranbt says:

      Can you fix that with rooting/flashing a new rom? I have Trick Droid on my HTC One and was able to customize my status bar with whatever color I wanted.

  5. Android User says:

    This blog sucks when viewed on a mobile device

  6. Derp says:

    September 25th?

  7. Where’s the battery info, must have battery info!

  8. CoreyHardin says:

    these designs all look the same anymore, I have a hard time getting excited about any of this. I’m sure the specs will be good, but it looks just like every other phone. Whoo.

  9. jake says:

    Very good looking device, will sell.

  10. bobbigballs says:

    the round backing of the phone will haunt moto because Apple did the same thing and went back to a flat backing, try to lay the phone down.

    Please let this have replaceable battery and sd card.
