Google X Phone is leaked in photos, and it looks awesome [Rumor]


Last week we shared with you photos of what is most likely going to be the Google X Phone for AT&T. While those images were nice, they showed the X Phone (or ‘XFON’ as it is labeled) in a case… so we couldn’t really get a good look at it. However, photos are now floating around on the web of the XFON without a case. And it looks awesome.

One of the photos of the X Phone, or rather what is expected to be the X Phone, are shown above. The other is the following:


Maybe it is just me, but I think that design is awesome. It is modern and sleek without being too blocky.

Paired with this leak is a report (rumor, really) by 9To5Google which claims to be privy the specifications of the X Phone. According to 9To5Google, the X Phone will have 4.7-inch screen, 32GB storage (no microSD slot), and 2GB of RAM; will run Android 4.2 ‘Ghost’ (which is likely a codename); will be available in LTE; will be on all four major US carriers (no information on international carriers); and will come in 25 different colors. Price and release date are unknown but it is expected to go on sale in July.

Well done, Motorola and Google. Now when will you sell me one? I’ll take one in hot pink traditional black, please.

    “no microSD slot” – then I’m not interested.
    Stuffed with Google crap ware – not interested.
    A shame, really.

    Thank you !Took the words right out of my mouth :-)

    I’m soon going to replace my current business phone (Nokia E5) which is in fact a great little phone, but not comparable to all the good stuff out there now.

    What to buy ….what to buy .. ? Apple ? (One of the) Samsung ? Blackberry ? Google ? Microsoft ? Another ?

    I had just about decided that I won’t buy any phone without a (micro)/SD card slot — besides feeling constricted, it’s just inconvenient, I prefer to take out the card and access it directly.

    I’ve just had the experience with the iPhone, where I took a few nice videos, but 2 or 3 of them refuses to be downloaded to my laptop (it gave no error message for all three, just nothing happens — all 3 were quite big in size, although the total volume of all pics and videos were still far below the 16 GB max. And trying same on my main machine gave same result. It’s still on the iPhone, where it plays without a hitch …

    I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have happened had it been stored on a SD card, especially if the reason was that part of the 16 GB max was (fraudulently :-) been taken up by Apple’s internal software.

    [@AFPhy6] Design. It frees up space and allows more flexibilty.

    Why do so many of the manufacturers insist on leaving out SD slots? What does that gain for them?

    [@Mike] You have a valid point; there is only so much that can be differentiated. Still, they aren’t all identical.

    Maybe it’s just me, but as time goes on, the phones look all the more similar and seem to be variations of the same.
