We first caught wind of the Motorola X Phone late last year and now it looks as if more details are starting to emerge. According to a trusted source on the DroidRzr forums, the Motorola X Phone will be announced at Google I/O 2013 in May and a tentative release date is scheduled for July 8th. Now for the juiciest bit of the purported leak: the unlocked “X Phone” will be available for all four major carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, on the Google Play store at a similar off-contract price-point as the LG Nexus 4 (16GB model costs $349). Verizon will apparently sell the device for $299 on contract as well, though users who want to unlock the bootloader through Big Red will also need to pay an additional fee of $15/month. Although the Motorola X Phone will run a stock version of Android, whether it’s Jelly Bean or upcoming Key Lime Pie, it’s important to note that it’s not a Nexus device, so there will be some bloatware and updates may not be released directly from Google in a timely manner. The good news is the bloatware can be removed on an unlocked X Phone. We’re still four months away from I/O, so hopefully more X Phone leaks and rumors surface in the meantime.
