Purported Motorola X Phone pictured in the wild with stock Android and running on AT&T 4G LTE

Mystery Motorola blackbox phone

It was only yesterday we told you guys about the Motorola XT1055 popping up in an Antutu benchmark.┬áToday, the boys at @Evleaks have gotten their hands on some leaked images of a mysterious Motorola device, running on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.

It’s tough to see from the images, but the device looks identical to the leaked Motorola prototype we saw awhile back, only with a hideous black box covering it’s curves as a disguise. No other details were given, but we definitely know Motorola is up to something and it looks an awful lot like a near-stock Android device.

Update: here’s the back and it’s hard to see, but you can make out “Model: XFON ATT.” (GASP!)

    The line segments around the M logo in the top left corner are different sizes in every picture… Could it be some sort of notification light?

    • AJH

      That would be really awesome if it is.

    • bmg314

      Good eye!

    • james ortiz

      holy crap that looks cool

    • Unorthodox

      That top part of the phone seems to be an e-ink display, which would be very easy to keep always on withou a bad battery drain.

    • Brian S.

      It reminds me that it’s Moto we’re talking about here, about time they make something useful again, but they have no choice now :-)

  • Nick Schiwy

    Did anyone else notice that the Motorola logo is different in each of these pictures? I don’t know how pertinent that is but I just found it interesting…Also, it must be running the newest version of Android because no past (AOSP) version has had the carrier name in the top left with the notifications… I really hope that isn’t something that they keep if this is real…

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, in one picture, the headphone hack says R and in the other it says L. Could be 2 different devices used for testing.

      • Tommy Thompson

        It would have to be 3 different phones, the logo is different in all 3 photos.

        • http://www.techmantis.net/ Minja Miketa

          Or it is part of a mini notification display screen that has the ability to change.

          • storm14k

            It does look like it is some sort of screen and not printed or etched.

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          Really? The 3rd is pixelated and hard to see. It’s a toss up really.

          • Tommy Thompson

            You’re a toss up.

          • Ryan O’Neill

            Your mom’s a toss up.

          • Tommy Thompson

            She could be.

          • Nick Schiwy

            I tossed your mom’s salad

          • Tommy Thompson


          • Manbo

            No, he really did. He works part time at The Olive Garden.

      • Anthony McKay

        Chris.. I have an upgrade end of this month with AT&T. Was going to get the HTC One, but ugh I don’t know now! Want a phone with a baller ass camera but stock Android gets my heart every time..

      • David Gray

        Man you guys got good eyes!!!! I feel like I’m playing “Where’s Waldo” here.

    • Matthew Merrick

      AT&T in the status bar is something AT&T forces onto MOST of their Android phones.

      • Nick Schiwy

        That may be true but since this is a supposed prototype I wouldn’t think that the carriers would have that kind of access to the software, yet. I don’t know, of course, just speculating.

    • UTZorro

      I wonder if the different logo is a sort of watermark Moto put on their prototypes to identify each prototype that’s floating around and which developers/testers are leaking photos of them!

      • Nick Schiwy

        That would be brilliant! Google secretly keeping tabs…

    • Ben Solomon

      The logos look photoshopped.

  • http://droidpanic.com/ DroidPanic

    X Phone???? Please, be a X Phone!!!! We want you here!!!

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      No, bro. It’s XFON. Get it right. O_o

      • http://droidpanic.com/ DroidPanic

        You’re right! lol
        Chinese XFON XD

        • KOLIO

          You’re both wrong,it’s MOTOX…………. :-P

          • Subzer0

            Actually its The EXPHONE purposely made for the stalking bitches that try to ruin your life.

          • Christopher Houser

            Can’t wait to get some MOTOX injections.

  • Nathan Bryant

    I find it funny that they think these cases really hide the design.

    • james ortiz

      it does…. I can’t make out the exterior that good

  • schitzengigles10

    Why hello you…oh…oh, don’t be scared, you can come out. No, no it’s fine. Don’t be shy. C’mon…be released already….

      Yeah, sorry, I tried using “SmartDeblur”, which is a pretty cool app for getting blurry photos in focus, but I wasn’t able to get anything to be any more legible than the original.

      Y’all are welcome to take a crack at it:

  • Kyle Cordiano

    Its the same phone that was leaked back in March.



    • bmg314

      That’s what I said!

  • Paul Williams

    Please have a much better flash and Large camera sensor .

  • collin ferreira

    Is it me or does it seem like every phone Google has had a hand in for the past year and a half and even future prototypes all seem to look oddly similar to a Galaxy Nexus? I own a Gnex and love it, but would love to see something new and fresh cosmetically speaking, ie HTC One-esk.

    • Tommy Thompson

      Soooo the Nexus 4 and this one? Not really that many phones lol..

  • Del373

    Whatever it is, let’s hope that “bumper” on the outside bezel is shed before it comes to market.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, I don’t trust bumpers no more. O_o

      • KOLIO

        Wanna sell your POETIC bumper?

  • http://twitter.com/tr_slate Travis Slate

    I wonder why it says “5/13″ on the back? Maybe a date – maybe prototype 5 of 13 total prototype devices.

    My guess on the logo is that section is a smaller secondary display for some reason.

    • http://twitter.com/tr_slate Travis Slate

      Also the dots and dashes surrounding the logo reminds me of morse code – although I cant get any letter number combo that makes sense…

    • FortTech101

      Or maybe May 13th. Two days before Google I/O. L

  • Caffiend

    About the only thing I’m mad at here is the fact that this phone hasn’t even been launched yet and it’s already running the new Android Market whereas my unrooted, launch day N4 stuck on old…. [/extreme sarcasm] Anyway, If this is in fact the “X” phone, I am more than willing to give Moto a go once again.

    • jackdubl

      Why not side load the new market, like I did several weeks ago? The link is in one of the Phandroid articles.

  • guitarist5122

    Is that a dual flash?

  • BigCiX


  • Ryan O’Neill

    Centered headphone jack, centered camera, centered flash…..My OCD is so happy right now.

  • Bionic

    This isnt the x phone. This is “ghost”. Ghost is basically x phone mini with a 4 inch screen and smaller battery

  • Jordan Caviness

    On at&t ?! Whaaaaaattt?!?! Noooooooooo!!!

  • jackdubl

    I love how this phone is disguised, even though so many pictures of it have already been shown.

  • Marsg

    Look at that extremely thin bezel >.> this device coupled with some great hardware might steal my attention away from the next generation galaxy note.

  • bmg314

    Hellooo, Moto!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Arcticwind101 Noble Sellers

    this rumored phone makes buying an s4 sooooo hard. i dont want to hate myself in 3 months.

  • Mittar Khalsa

    Wow that’s ugly!

    • Christopher Carr

      Try reading.

  • http://www.facebook.com/byron.l.ross.jr Byron L Ross Jr.

    I saw those Benches, damn 18000…hope thats the SD800 in there

  • disqusroadpizza

    Perhaps the varying dash-dots around the Bat-Wings are a rotating progress indicator?

  • David Gray

    Wow look at that raised bezel!!!! No thanks Moto

    • schitzengigles10

      that’s a case buddy. Swing and a miss

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

      Read harder.

  • asas

    It’s not even a Motorola. Clearly you can see that this is a McDonald’s Phone displayed in the picture
