The Motorola X is next in line for the leak treatment, not quite managing to steal the crown from the Lumia 1020, which pretty much ended up not needing a product launch.

Pictures of the back of the phone have appeared on Chinese microblogging website Weibo and finally show the handset up close and in a little more detail. It shows a matte plastic soft-touch back with an embossed, glossy Motorola logo. The camera and headphone jack are raised slightly out of the back of the phone and there is a long panel gap around the handset, suggesting it has a removable back.

The camera unit has a flash below it, although we can't work out if it's Xenon or not. Next to the camera lens is a set of micro-drilled holes, presumably for the phone's speaker. 

The Motorola X - set to be the first handset produced by Motorola under Google ownership - is rumoured to be highly customisable. The handset has previously appeared in leaked images showing it in a range of rainbow colours, the design of which matches up with the leak from Weibo.

There is no official word yet from Google on the Moto X, but Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has said it is developing a handset and that it will be going on sale before October this year. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
