Talking tech since 2003

Excited for Google and Motorola’s upcoming Moto X smartphone, the smartphone you can “design yourself” according to Google’s own ad-speak? Well, apparently so is Eric Schmidt; the Google Chairman was seen flaunting his as of yet unannounced Motorola Moto X handset at this month’s annual Allen and Co media conference.

Mr. Schmidt apparently gave onlookers a nice good look at the phone, and published photos reveal some new details about the phone. First, the phone appears to be built using some sort of carbon fiber-like material, giving the back of the device a grippy but attractive back. This is in harsh contrast to Google’s current flagship device, the LG Nexus 4, which is constructed with a very fragile entirely glass body.

The Moto X also appears to house an unusually large camera in the middle of the back of the phone, suggesting that there’s some pretty beefy hardware in there. The camera unit appears to be significantly larger than the camera found in the iPhone 5 for example, though I don’t necessarily expect anything nearly as impressive as what Nokia announced yesterday with their Nokia Lumia 1020 flagship handset.

Looking forward to the Moto X as much as we are? We shouldn’t have to wait too much longer at this point – Google has been ramping up their advertising efforts for the Moto X as of late, and the device also hit the FCC not too long ago.
