There have been tons of speculations on Motorola’s X-Phone project, but nothing indicated that this could be real until today.
It looks like Google and Motorola are indeed working on something called X-Phone, which will eventually see the light of day in the coming months.
The confirmation comes from a job listing by Motorola Mobility posted on LinkedIn. It appears that the US-based company is looking to hire a Senior Director of Product Management who will work directly on the X-Phone project.

, the job listing was quickly pulled by Motorola Mobility, but luckily we have a screenshot that proves it courtesy to the cited source.
Less than two months ago WSJ suggested
that Google and Motorola were trying to deliver the ultimate Android experience with the X-Phone.
Wild rumors continue to emerge on the smartphone’s specs sheet and some even suggest that this could be released with a flexible display on tow.
More reliable leaks suggest Motorola X-Phone will be the first smartphone to come with Android 5.0
Key Lime Pie operating system out of the box.
This makes sense, though we’re not sure that Google will want to announce the X-Phone at its annual I/O conference.
If we are to believe what Qualcomm’s roadmap for 2013 mentions, then Motorola X-Phone might be launched on the market as early as Q4.
Qualcomm’s roadmap for this year leaked a few days ago and shows an Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie device set for a Q4 2013 release. Obviously, it’s too early to assume that this is indeed Motorola’s X-Phone device, but it’s one of the many possibilities.
All in all, we expect more info on the X-Phone project will surface in the coming weeks. Hopefully, we will get more details on the phone’s specs sheet as well, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
