Photo shows what appears to be a matte plastic backing 

Despite the lack of any official reveal, we've seen plenty of the phone many are assuming to be Motorola's Moto X. The rear of the device has been allegedly caught on camera again, but it's not so colorful this time around. The camera lens, flash, 3.5mm headphone jack, and recessed Motorola logo are consistent with previous rear shell photos. The speaker grill, composed of three rows of holes, also looks similar, except it is on the opposite side of the camera lens in this photo. From this angle, we can also see what looks like a second microphone next to the headphone jack.

The above photo comes out of China, and in recent months we've also seen video of what might be the Moto X from Vietnam. Carrier-specific versions of the phone are also making the rounds, with AT&T and Sprint varieties having come to light.

With a phone this important to Motorola, we'll be watching with interest to see how things unravel in the coming weeks and months.

Yet another possible Moto X photo leaks

I liked that one, too. I like phones with a little more heft to them than the current high-end crop.

And really, if the thickness is indicative of a beefy battery, I'll be *really* happy.

I guarantee it will not live up to the hype. It is going to be a reasonably priced, mid range phone that is meant to appeal to the masses through features rather than specs. A lot of Android Nerds will be mad because it isn't the coming of phone jesus, it will sell reasonably well and the world will move on.

Their Flagship/ Hero device is suppose to be out in October, I'll wait then, but this is a great phone to replace my GNex with and is using Vanilla android and will be on Verizon for me

It could be because the shell itself is made in China. The Moto X may only have its finally assembly in the States. It doesn't mean its components cannot be made elsewhere.

The internals are most likely made in China as well things like the camera assembly, SoC, memory and etc. Most foundries are found in Asia, especially if the SoC they use are manufactured by TSMC. Only Samsung, IBM and Intel have foundries in US. GlobalFoundries does have a foundry under construction in the States but it's not operational yet so it doesn't count.

My Nexus 4 was assembled in South Korea, doesn't mean its internal components and the casing for the phone is also made there, they simply assembled it there.

Keep in mind phones for the rest of the world are set to be assembled in Brazil and China according to reports, only North America bound phones are being assembled here.

I like a girl with a little meat on her bones. And I don't see a problem with it being a reasonably priced mid-range device.

Someone could easily use the width of the headphone jack to determine the size of the phone, or at least in this case, the width of it. Use the other photos we've seen with common sized features to figure out the size and screen size of the phone.

Yeah nevermind my first reply. I counted the squares for myself, looks to be 20-22 squares long on the graph paper, which would make it 127 mm = 5 inches tall. Maybe it will be smaller, Motorola did say they would do a smaller screen size.

You've won the comments. IMO at least haha I'm probably one of the few that know what your talking about.

I hope it packs a punch and carry's so juice. And is released in the euro.

Why are these pics out of China/Vietnam if it's supposedly made in USA?
Putting covers on in Texas doesn't make it American

It's most likely assembled in Texas where as the majority of the components are made elsewhere.

If a Texan has a job by putting the cover on the back, that is a good start. 2000 jobs in Fort Worth they have said.

Looks to have a nice curve to the back. I hope that extra thickness is for a massive battery.

curious how the leaks are coming out of China, for the first phone to be built in the United States! wtf?

All these comments referring to this phone as a "thick girl" with some "meat on her bones" are hilarious! LOL

My next phone will be a motorola...Wonder how powerful the battery will be?

The speaker has bigger holes than in other leaks and it is on the opposite side. It looks a bit thicker than what Schmidt was holding too. I bet this is a lower specc'd international version of the Moto x.
