Leaked Moto X screenshots show Motorola Migrate, phone recovery

Moto X boot animation, launch event details also leaked

The Moto X smartphone will be providing a lost phone tracking and other assistance to its users, according to new leaked screenshots. A video has been unearthed, reportedly showing the new start-up screen for the Motorola smartphone, while more details about the device's launch event have also been revealed.

Screenshots picked up by Android Police show an app called Motorola Assist, an app that seems similar to the Smart Actions app that alters device settings based on where the user is or the time of day. Motorola Device ID will apparently be a way for users to track their lost or stolen device, via a dedicated website. Motorola Migrate will help transfer messages, call history, SIM contacts, media and various system settings from an old Android phone to the Moto X, via a downloadable app on the old device. Active Display, namely illuminating part of a hibernating phone, Active Notifications, and Motorola Connect are also said to be on the device.

The alleged booting animation shows the Motorola logo being spun around in various locations, with the logo sphere appearing as a miniature planet with water, land, trees, buildings, and other items on it. While it could be a criticism that the animation plays for about 10 seconds, a fairly long time compared to other smartphone boot animations, it does appear to be a more colorful interpretation of the logo than what it could have been.

The launch event, scheduled for August 1st in New York, is said by Slashgear to run in the late evening. A number of entertainment acts, including DJ Kaskade, M4SONIC, Thank You X, and Chef Marc Forgione are said to be in attendance at the event, though it is still not known what staff from Google or Motorola will be revealing the handset.
