Eric Schmidt talking on Moto X

What looks like the clearest Moto X image to date has made its way online, and the handset is in good company, with Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt apparently talking on it.

We’ve seen a variety of purported Moto X images so far, but none of them was confirmed. So, unless this is a very clever photoshopped picture, This may be the first confirmation of the Moto X, considering the extensive image galleries available online (see updates at the end of this post).

Earlier today we also looked at a video posted by Robert Scoble in which we think we spotted the handset (the black version) being used to take a photo of an artist performing a song.

Where was this picture taken, and who was fortunate enough to get that shot of the white Moto X? Gary He, director of operations at Insider Images posted it on Twitter a few hours ago, together with a #sunvalley13 hashtag:

In case you’re not aware of it, #sunvalley13 stands for the 2013 Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference, an annual event that’s attended by a lot of personalities from different fields, including tech.

In addition to posting the image above, He also shared other pictures on Twitter, mentioning other guests for the event including Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg.

The Moto X is yet to be official, but the image above tells us the handset looks pretty much like what we expected considering the most recent Moto X leaks. However, we will notice that the speaker on the back of the handset appears to be placed on the right of the camera instead of the left, as it’s seen in the most recent leaked image that shows the handset in black (image below).

That said, we’ll remind you that Verizon is rumored to launch the Moto X on August 23, so whether that’s true or not it still means Motorola has to unveil the handset in the coming weeks – after all, the company did say the phone will launch this summer.

Update: A gallery of images showing Eric Schmidt talking on the Moto X are available at Insider Images.

Update 2: has published an extensive gallery of images from the event, and you can check some of the images in the gallery above to see the Moto X from other angles.
