Few devices in living memory have been so hyped and so thoroughly leaked ahead of launch like the Moto X. Motorola pegs the new smartphone as revolutionary, but now it’s time for the buying public to decide if the wait was really worth it.

A controversial topic for months now, the Moto X comes with a series of features that Motorola hopes will differentiate it from the pack of high-end competitors. The Moto X’ official specs may not be as impressive as those of rivals from Samsung and HTC, but Motorola says that deep software optimization and custom chips should make the Moto X stand out in the crowd.

How about the design? The phone comes in a variety of colors and buyers can choose a custom text to be engraved on the back of the device. Perhaps the most striking thing about it is how compact it actually is. Remember, the Moto X has the same display size as the much larger HTC One!

Here’s a gallery of Motorola Moto X images. We’ll update it as soon as we get more hands-on images and video.
