Help us identify this mysterious Motorola device and get a cookie

Who doesn’t love a blurry and suspicious leaked photo of an upcoming device once in a while? We sure do. Today’s treat is brought to you by the guys over at PocketNow, who have come across the photo you see below. The device is believed to be an Android device from Motorola. And that’s where all the details stop.

The device is obviously going through the testing phase, seeing as it has a ribbon cable attached for some serious testing business. Then there’s the lack of any visible hardware button. (Gasp! Ice Cream Sandwich!) Or maybe it has capacitive buttons and they’re invisible when the phone is turned off. PocketNow also notes the device has a “horizontal seam at the bottom,” meaning it could have a QWERTY keyboard. So, does anybody recognize this Motorola phone? Let us know in the comments.

Name that phone.

    Frankly, i think it looks like an HTC device. It does not look ugly and blocky enough to be Motorola. Anybody’s guess though. If it is Motorola, they are going in the right direction with the styling of it. Wait, wait, wait…. Nexus 3 anyone???

    • http://Website Aj

      It may not be blocky but it doesn’t have HTC’s signature aluminum look. Plus it has a MOTOROLA logo on it. I just hope it doesn’t have Whatever The Heck They’re Calling BLUR Now.

    • http://Website Motosurf

      it says motorola on the top, smart boy

      • http://Website Ruben

        You know I have looked at this pic for a while and do not see a Moto logo. Nor do I see where the phone says Motorola. I see a speaker on the top of the phone. If you mean the title says Moto, that means squat. They don’t know what this is. They are asking us for christ sake. Show me definate proof that it is Moto, or its anybodys guess what this is. Does not look like Moto to me. Just my own opinion. I could be wrong, but so can everyone else without any real facts about the phone. Idiot.

I mean its gotta happen someday have it have ICS, 8mp 1080p dual led flash camera. 4.5″ screen NFC, omap4 or tegra 3 qhd no pentile. All black & all white models. A Droid eye that uses nexus symbol as boot animation. Attachable detachable keyboard like the old LG versa.

    It has the same ear piece screen as the Droid x and x2. Maybe a new version of the Droid x with the hard buttons removed. I’ll say it’s the new Motorola Droid x3 now with less buttons! It also has a completely unlocked bootloader.

  • http://Website cman

    It’s the Motorola Skynet. They’ll be releasing next April 19th.
