Here's Google's Eric Schmidt Using the Moto X Smartphone In the Wild

From what we can tell, the Moto X has a big eye-camera on the back, whci looks a bit like the design of the HTC One. Or it would it if it wasn't for that pronounced curve shape. From what we can see, this could be Motorola's handsomest phone in years.

Beyond what it looks like, we do what the new Motorola Android flagship will be. The Moto X will definitely be assembled at a factory in Texas. Because America! According to some reports, it'll come with optional custom colours and laser engravings.

The Moto X will be significant for Motorola because it's the first phone that's been fully designed under the tutelage of Google. The choices Google makes with this phone says a lot about the direction it envisions for Motorola in the future.
