While nothing extremely solid regarding the supposed Motorola X Phone has leaked out yet, we’re still holding onto hope that the phone still exists. Our hopes just got a bit of an upgrade, though, as a new Motorola device has just made its first appearance at the FCC. This one carries the model number XT1058, and its radios suggest this thing is bound for AT&T shores.

The FCC outline doesn’t give much away, natch, but we can see an area for a (rather large) camera sensor flanked by a speaker grill, an LED below that, and likely the Motorola logo below that. This setup looks to match the same featured on the prototype leaked by @evleaks close to two weeks ago, a phone that was labeled “XFON ATT.”

That isn’t concrete evidence that the X Phone is real and that it’s going to AT&T, but if this device is real then we can’t imagine AT&T won’t get a crack. So when can we expect a revelation, if true? Earlier rumors suggested Google I/O, but we’ve never been too confident in that date.

Several rumors since the device was first tipped suggest Google might opt to announce the device at a later date, but considering the shakiness of this entire mill we’re not exactly sure what to put faith into. We’ll have our attention fixated squarely on Google I/O regardless, and we’ll be there live and ready to bring you updates on anything Google and Motorola might be bringing to the party.
