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.

        1. 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.

          1. 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.

        1. 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!

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

        2. 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).

          1. It should be in the $250 – $300 range. Otherwise why would anyone choose this over the N4?

          2. Leo Leporte, who was at the private intro party, pretty much admitted to it on This week in Google on wednesday. Watch it.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

        1. I’m well aware of what it is but since I’m the only person who works here it’s much easier to look it up vs spending the amount of time it takes to convert my site to responsive design. No need to be an ass…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
