While Motorola and Google are paying huge dollars for their Independence Day 2013 Moto X Phone ad campaign in the top newspapers in the U.S., a European Blogsite on the other hand has already published leaked images of some colorful back covers that are supposed to make up the rear of the upcoming Moto X device.
Motorola Mobility has already gone on record stating one of the biggest USP of the upcoming flagship device will be its varied customization options. Or in other words, the Moto X will give its users the freedom of designing the device on their own instead of being forced to opt for only the standard version that offers little or no customization options.
While that remains commendable, the conclusions that can be drawn from the leaked back covers do cast some dark shadows. Like the speakers seem to be placed at the back of the device which can be considered as a step backward. This at a time when the HTC One has won some rich accolades for the placement of the speakers along the front of the device.
The leaked photos also shows the cover of the device to be made of polycarbonate plastic, a choice of material which many believe is simply not befitting of a flagship device. Whether the upcoming Moto X device can lure buyers with its plastic body and rear mounted speakers continues to be debated. Nothing can be concluded as of now as no glimpse of the device is yet been seen apart from the leaked images. What is expected of a flagship device from Motorola is a device that can compete with Apple’s stylish design as well as Samsung’s long run performance.
That said, price can still be an important deciding factor in determining the future of the Moto X. If priced suitably enough, say at $249 or less, then the Moto X can still pose a formidable challenge to the top selling phones in the market. This even if the Moto X comes with its speaker at the back or is made of polycarbonate.
