Moto X press images leak

We've already gotten quite a few different peeks at the Moto X at this point, including photos of the device being held by Google chairman Eric Schmidt and video of some of its special features in action. Today we're getting our best look at the phone yet, though, courtesy of some Moto X press images that have been posted by @evleaks.

These latest shots don't reveal much in the way of new information about the Moto X, but they do serve to back up just about every other leak that's surfaced up until now. There's what looks to be a fairly untouched version of Android on-board, a set of on-screen navigation buttons (placed on a transparent bar), and a center-mounted rear camera with flash and a Motorola logo resting beneath it.

On the spec side of things, the Moto X is rumored to be packing a 720p display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 10-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, 16GB storage,  and 2GB RAM. That may not be a "blow your hair back"-type of feature set, but the Moto X is also expected to sport an affordable price tag that could make it a good option for consumers hunting for a new smartphone that's easy on the wallet. With those specs, the Moto X will likely provide a better user experience than most other "cheap" Android phones on the market.

Motorola will formally introduce us to the Moto X on August 1, and according to the rumor mill, the device will be hitting several carriers toward the end of August. The good news is that we've got leaks like this one to keep us occupied until then, and considering how frequently the Moto X has been popping up online in recent months, I wouldn't be surprised to see it surface once or twice more before its debut. So now that we've gotten a good, clear look at the Moto X, what do you think of Motorola's "hero" device?

UPDATE: Another press image of the Moto X has been posted by @evleaks. This time we're looking at the side of the device, which includes its lock button and volume rocker. We can also see that the bottom half of the phone's backside appears to slope inward a bit.
