The much-rumored Moto X has apparently made its way online in the clearest purported images yet, in the hand of none other than Google's Eric Schmidt.
While several images allegedly showing the Moto X have leaked so far, this may be the first legitimate confirmation of what the handset looks like. The fact that the smartphone was spotted in the hand of Google's Chairman adds even more credibility to these images. Moreover, instead of just one photo, this new leak comes with an extensive image gallery.
Insider Images director of Operations Gary He was the one who tweeted the first image of Schmidt holding an intriguing Motorola phone. He used the #sunvalley13 hashtag, which stands for the annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference. A slew of personalities from various fields attend this event each year, and Schmidt was obviously among the notable attendees.
Motorola confirmed the existence of the Moto X smartphone, but did not disclose any details yet. The leaked images do not reveal much either, but they do show that the speaker on the back of the smartphone seems to be placed on the right side of the camera rather than the left, as previously alleged.
The Moto X is expected to sport a 4.3 or 4.7-inch display, pack a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and run the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The smartphone will allegedly feature a 10-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Rumored specs aside, an allegedly leaked Verizon roadmap for the next several weeks shows the Moto X heading to the Big Red on Aug. 23. The leak comes from Phone Arena, who claims to have obtained it from an anonymous tipster. Motorola did say the Moto X would make its debut this summer, but that's no guarantee that the leaked roadmap is the real deal.
Until Google or Motorola decide to make things official, take all rumors with a grain of salt. In the meantime, check out the Moto X image gallery on Insider Images to get a better idea of what to expect.
