Leaked “X Phone” pictures add credibility to earlier rumors


For the last couple months we have been reporting on the mysterious Motorola X Phone, but there hasn’t been a lot of evidence to back up the wild claims of our sources. Today a new set of leaked images from @evleaks adds just a little bit of credibility to some of the “X Phone” details that have previously been shared. New pictures show an unannounced Motorola device concealed in a “blackbox” casing with the model name “XFON” that is clearly running on AT&T.

Our last “X Phone” report said that the device would launch exclusively on AT&T in August, and then appear on other carriers around November. These new photos don’t completely confirm that this is true, but it’s a huge coincidence that the first device labeled as “XFON” is already being tested on AT&T. You can tell this is an AT&T branded device from the appearance of AT&T in the notification area, the AT&T 4G LTE logo, and the myAT&T app that is installed on the device.

Another boost of confidence in our sources is provided by the fact that this new leak matches up with the Vietnamese leak from earlier this year. Our source had claim that device with the model number XT912A was an “X Phone” prototype, and these new pictures appear to be the same device.


An early prototype of the first Motorola “X Phone.”

We don’t have much else to add at this point, so be sure to read up on rumor dumps onetwothree, and four if you missed our previous “X Phone” reports. Only the customizable RAM option has been debunked, so there’s a good chance that most of the other details could turn out to be true.
