A new leak possibly offers a new glimpse at the upcoming Motorola Moto X Phone. The leak is a photo of the handset’s front panel, showing “Not for sale” and “Motorola confidential property” labels.
Phonearena was the first to publish the image, which the blog reportedly received from an anonymous tipster. According to their source, the phone in the image is the Motorola XT1056, a handset that is heading to Sprint this year. The smartphone itself does not show the Sprint logo. However, the model number was recently seen in an FCC listing recently.
The photo also shows that the smartphone appears to be running something close to stock Android. This comes as no surprise, since Motorola’s Android handsets lately have been adopting a UI that is close to vanilla Android.
Furthermore, the handset in the image seems to be the same as the one pictured in Vietnam a couple of months ago. It also looks like the one with the AT&T logo called the XFON, which was likewise leaked last month.
Leaks like this may continue to arrive as the supposed date of unveiling of the Motorola Moto X Phone approaches. According to rumors, Motorola will reveal the device on August 1. Among its alleged specifications are a 4.6-inch 720p display, a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of system RAM, a 10 MP main camera, a 2 MP secondary camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and a removable 4,000 mAh battery. Apart from Sprint and AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and U.S. Cellular will supposedly offer the product.
Motorola has already confirmed the existence of the Moto X Phone, but has not given any hints as to what its technical specifications, features, or price will be. Phonearena also notes that Motorola is giving more attention to the smartphone’s features, rather than its hardware.
