White Motorola X spotted in the wild… in Eric Schmidt’s hand
Another day, another Motorola X leak. That’s just the way things are this summer, it seems. We’re still waiting for Motorola to make the X official, and we might not have to wait longer than a few weeks, since recently we found out that Verizon will release Moto’s new creation on August 23. The carrier needs a week or two for pre-orders, surely, so the announcement could come in early August.
Until then, though, here’s a Motorola X in the wild. In the hand of Eric Schmidt, Google executive chairman. During a media and technology conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, Schimdt was extensively photographed talking on the Motorola X – a white one, in fact.
These images are from July 10, so just a couple of days old. Schimdt clearly knew that he was going to get snapped, so file this under ‘controlled leaks’ – and we’re seeing more and more of those lately.
The back of the white X (which is all that we can see clearly) certainly looks good, and the construction seems to be a quality job, although it’s probably all-plastic to keep the price down. So, yesterday we showed you the back of the black X. Today we get the white one. The front should be identical in both cases, and a picture of that was leaked a while back.
The white and black versions of the Moto X will probably be among the ‘standard’ ones you’ll be able to buy in actual stores. For more colorful options, you’ll need to turn to the Web, and order an X online – this will reportedly allow you to customize things further.
