Google chairman Eric Schmidt may be using Moto X at media conference

Motorola X phone shown with textured back, white casing

The rumored Moto X has apparently been spotted in public, in the hands of Eric Schmidt. The Google chairman was seen using what appears to be the smartphone at the annual Allen & Co media conference, giving credence to claims that Motorola and the search giant will be launching and releasing the Moto X in the near future.

Images picked up by show Schmidt using a white-backed phone with a black front, similar to the appearance of the now-removed white Google Nexus 4, though with a textured back. The camera and flash are lined along the vertical middle of the device, the headphone socket is in the direct center of the top, and the back curves in order to give an appearance of thinness.

Current rumors for the internals of the Moto X suggest it will have a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 10MP rear camera, though some say that these could be customized. A large advertising buy has also been touted for the device, along with a potential street date in late August.
