One loyal reader of AndroidCentral sent them a snap of upcoming Verizon Moto X, which showed the device running LTE network. The image also gave some clear idea of the size of the smartphone, the shape and the outline of Moto X reminded us a lot of the Nexus 4. Also, it can be noticed that the UI, which is running on the smartphone in the image is a bit different than Stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. 

The soft-keys on the home screen are semi-transparent, this could be the Motorola Software customization or the upcoming Android 4.3 with new look for the stock launcher. In addition, PhoneArena has leaked the Verizon road map which shows the device to launch on 23rd August on Verizon, pointing towards early official announcement.

In which, Wood and Plastic will be available at the time of launch, while the other options will go live after 23rd August Verizon release.

Wimberly is also reporting that US telecom operator AT&T has some kind of "exclusive" thing for the Moto X launch, it may be an exclusive material or colour or something else completely different.
