Erich Schmidt Caught On Camera Using a Moto X

Moto X 01

The Moto X is making the headlines over the past couple of weeks, after we’ve either talked about official Moto X ads or leaks that revealed the smartphone’s coloured cases, front panel, or back design. Today we get to see the smartphone in Erich Schmidt’s hand, Google’s Executive Chairman, offering us an interesting perspective over the new smartphone.

I can’t not see that the Moto X in a white livery is a reminiscent of the HTC One, especially its curved back. Anyway, the guys at Android Central

say that Moto X reminds them of the white Nexus 4, which has a white rear and a black front panel.

The spy shots of the Moto X revealed the smartphone’s camera lens, the LED flash, the audio jack, and even the speaker that is right next to the camera. Eric Schmidt’s Moto X seems a lot thinner than the terminals we’ve seen in previous leaks, which might indicate that so far we’ve only looked at the prototypes of the smartphone.

The Moto X will be the first smartphone co-developed by Google and Motorola after the search engine giant acquired the Chicago-based phone maker back in August 2012. It was reported that the Moto X will have a half a billion dollar advertising budget which is indicating that the smartphone is really important for the two companies.

The first Moto X ad that was launched earlier this month has revealed that the handset will be “Made in the US” and that it will be “Designed by you,” which may confirm the rumors saying that it will come with great customization options.

The rumor mill speculates that the Moto X technical specifications list will include a 4.7-inch display with HD resolution and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU clocked at 1.7 GHz, plus a 10 megapixel primary camera mounted on the back.

I am curious to see which will be the selling point of the Moto X, probably a price below $300 for the unlocked model and free with a two year contract? Thoughts?
