BlackBoxed Motorola phone image appears on Twitter, could be the X-Phone [update]

The ever reliable @evleaks has posted an image of a Motorola smartphone that is clearly pictured in a protective case that conceals its real identity. Going by the images the device not only runs on the AT&T network in the US, but also by the looks of it runs a pretty stock version of Android.

The device not only brandishes a Motorola logo, but also showcases the ‘Moto Care’ app which is exclusive to Motorola smartphones. The left most image basically shows an image of the Play Store but also reveals the virtual keyboard which appears to be similar to the one on stock Android, and different from the custom Motorola one.

Over the past few months there have been rumors about a Motorola made X-Phone which would flaunt cutting edge specs and the latest version of Android. By the looks of the images the version of Android seems pretty similar to Android 4.2, hence this could be an indication that the device is running Android 4.3 instead of Android 5.0, which was predicted earlier.

Only recently, a number of Nexus smartphones have appeared on the net running Android 4.3 giving more credence to the launch of Android 4.3 at Google I/O later this month rather than Android 5.0. That said, it will be prudent to wait for Google I/O which starts on May 15 for more information.

Update: Now @evleaks has also posted an image of the back of the device. In the caption he says that it could be the AT&T version of the Motorola X-Phone. By the looks of it, the back of the device has a mesh like finish similar to the kevlar back seen on the Droid Razr (but this could be just a cover that masks the exterior of the device), and there is also a rear camera with a flash module underneath it.
