Motorola 'Magic Glass' to use Gorilla Glass on front and sides on Moto X

New rumors suggest that the Moto X will have "Magic Glass" shielding the front of the device. The new rumor, ahead of the Motorola smartphone's August 1st launch event, is accompanied by images that are said to be the final marketing renders for the device, showing the front, side, and rear of both the black and white models.

Information posted onto Google+ by Taylor Wimberly, former owner of Android and Me, states that the Moto Magic Glass will be a sheet of Gorilla Glass that has been molded to create a "continuous surface that wraps around the entire front and edges of the device." The images leaked from the @evleaks Twitter account suggest that this could be true, though until it has been released by Google and Motorola, it is anything but guaranteed to be true.

Wimberly also mentions that the Moto X would have dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas for improved connection speeds, accompanying three others for GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and 2G and 3G calls. The launch of the Moto X could be accompanied by a second device, namely a Google smartwatch, though considering the high profile of the Moto X, it is unlikely to be sharing the stage with another device.
