The Google X phone is the company’s first solo attempt at a smartphone and the product of its $12.4 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility. While the X Phone has not officially debuted, the team at Tinhte.tn recently posted photos which were quickly followed by rumored specs for the smartphone.
On Thursday, photos of the device in a protective casing were revealed. While those photos did not showcase the full design for the X Phone, they appeared to validate Tinhte’s leaked photos (pictured above and below) which were revealed in March.
The Google X phone appears to have a sleek design with a display that nearly reaches the edges of the device.
According to 9to5Google, the phone is believed to feature a 4.7-inch (diagonal) HD display, 32GB of internal storage, and 2GB of RAM.
With Google owning the X Phone, the device is also expected to feature Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is very likely that future upgrades to the OS will be pushed out quickly since the Android OS being featured will be a direct take on the mobile OS.
It is also reported that the Google X Phone will ship with 25 different protective skin color choices.
While Google is remaining tight-lipped about the Google X Phone, some analysts believe it will debut during Google’s three-hour Google I/O keynote address later this month.
Are you ready to jump ship from Samsung, LG, or another manufacturer to give the Google X smartphone a chance? I will personally reserve judgement until Google I/O.
