The first Verizon Moto X picture has apparently been leaked, showing a test unit for Big Red with a turned on screen that seems to suggest the device is running stock Android.
Just like the rumored Sprint Moto X leak that we saw in late June, this Moto X unit also has the markings of a test unit: the “not for sale” and “Motorola confidential property” inscriptions can be seen above and under the display, respectively.
Interestingly, just like the Sprint Moto X leak, the top right corner is hidden – this time it’s blurred out, whereas in the Sprint image it was covered. Is there some sort of new sensor placed there, or is it an identifier for the test unit?
We’ll note that Verizon’s 4G LTE logo is clearly visible in the status bar, and, just like with the Sprint leak, we’re apparently looking at an edge-to-edge display with small bezels and no hardware buttons.
The Motorola logo on the top left corner is similar to Moto’s new logo, but seems to be slightly different from the one seen on the Sprint leak (image below).
That said, we’ll remind you that while there are no official Moto X images at this time, we’ve seen plenty of leaks already, culminating with a video showing at least on Motorola exec using the device during a private gathering, and with a series of images showing Eric Schmidt talking on a Moto X during a public event.
Verizon is rumored to get the handset on August 23 as the Moto X (therefore not part of the Droid family). Furthermore, the device is expected to be available from multiple operators in the USA, with Google said to invest as much as $500 million in advertising it.
