Moto X In The Wild? Google's Schmidt Steps Out With Mystery Motorola Device

Well, what do we have here? According to Google's own Eric Schmidt, it could very well be the famed Motorola X. A few months ago, we learned that Motorola, now fully under Google's stewardship, would be launching its first flagship Android phone since the acquisition. The company has a lot riding on this device. With a new iPhone anticipated for the fall and the Galaxy S4 selling like hotcakes globally, the mobile market is as competitive as it has ever been at the top end.


The Motorola X, presumably shown here as Schmidt visits other tech moguls at the Sun Valley conference in Idaho, will also be made in the United States and be customizable to some degree once it goes on sale to the public in October. While this may only be a prototype, it honestly shares a lot with the design of the HTC One -- a slightly tapered backside and a prominent camera sensor up top. 

Either way, it's a lovely looking phone, and if Motorola can make it equally impressive on the inside, we may finally see the first phone from Moto since the RAZR that takes the world by storm.

Looks like a pretty thin and sleek device!

Actually, it looks like this will be a midrange-like device, meant for the majority of people with a very decent price.

So, decent - not high end - hardware for a price around $250-300, customizable with colors and engravings on the back. And, since it's a Motorola, a big chance of a big battery :D

Let's see what they'll present us... soon...

You think, Nick? I don't know. Schmidt is holding at least a 5-inch device to his head here, that is if this a picture of him holding the aforementioned Moto phone.

hmmm i guess your perception on phones to head ratio is better than mine since you deal with so many of them but its rumored to be like 4.4 inches and it doesnt look that big to personally. Maybe schmidt just has a small head?. maybe multiple models?? Maybe part of the customization options? I guess we will just have to wait and see. This is definitely a controlled though. Im sure he did this in public to build some hype.

Wow now that phone looks nice!!!!! It reminds me of a flatter version of Apple's Magic Mouse especially if its slightly curved to the middle, and that's not a bad thing at all! Especially since both fit in the hand.

I remember when the RAZR was the craze...if you didn't have one you weren't the cool kid.
