Moto X Photos Show Off Magic Glass Display

The official Moto X launch is just two days away, which means we’ve only got two days of leaks for Motorola’s long-rumored flagship handset left. Today we’re starting bright and early with a fresh batch of pictures detailing the smartphone’s front panel. The photos were published by FanaticFone, though it’s hard to tell if we’re looking at renderings or the real deal.

Last week, a rumor that the Moto X would feature a “Magic Glass” display surfaced online, describing a design in which a thin sheet of Gorilla Glass stretches across the entire front of the device and around the edges to create a seamless surface. We’re not certain the photos confirm the “Magic Glass” report, but it looks like the handset’s thin bezel is raised slightly above the screen, though that doesn’t rule out the possibility that it’s still covered in durable glass.

The Moto X is rumored to retail for about $300 off-contract and may go on sale as soon as Motorola’s August 1 press event is over. Based on numerous leaks, we expect the device to come equipped with mid-range specs including a 4.5-inch 720p display, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU clocked at 1.7GHz and 2GB of RAM. The flagship smartphone will also likely come packing Android 4.3 and a number of high-end features powered by Google Now and other Google services.

TechnoBuffalo will be at Motorola’s special event for the Moto X this week to provide you with coverage.
