Google X Phone rumors are hitting from left and right this time of year, on an almost daily basis. A new report is now claiming that the X Phone will not be Google’s only Motorola-made this year, not that we’d be surprised to hear Moto is working on more Droids for 2013.

Phone Arena says that Motorola will have three other devices in stores later this year that will not be part of the X Phone or Nexus families.

Not many details are available for these devices, other than that two of them would be launched in the third quarter, one bigger and the other one smaller, while a third model will be available in the following quarter.

The latter “may be offered unlocked at a price point that may be lower than the Nexus 4,” although that feature alone won’t make it a Nexus phone. Will Moto also design a Nexus handset this year? While yesterday’s report seems to suggest that’s a possibility, today’s X Phone-related story says that there’s no indication that any of these three other Motorola Android phones will come with Nexus branding.

Moreover, the publication says, once again, that the X Phone will not come with hardware customization features, which is what the latest X Phone rumor also said, and that the “release window has always been for late June or July for the handset, so there has been no delay,” as previously suggested.

We’ll remind you that these are all unconfirmed details at this point, and we have no way of telling whether they’re real or not. We’ll certainly be back with more reports on upcoming Motorola devices, X Phone included, but in the mean time tell us what kind of Motorola-made phone you’d like to buy from Google this year.
