We finally know when Motorola will give us all the details on the long-awaited Moto X, the company's first smartphone believed to be fully designed from start to finish under the umbrella of Google ownership. CNET has received an invitation to the grand unveiling on 1 August, but, in the meantime, the leaks keep coming.

Above, courtesy of theUnlockr and @evleaks, are what both claim to be the first glamour shots of the new phone for the media.

There's nothing apparently revolutionary on display, although the Moto X trademark curved back plate is visible and the weathered wood wallpaper on the stock Android home screen could be a nod to all of the customisation options that we've heard about.

Previous leaks point toward the Moto X landing on US carriers sometime later in August.

It appears that the secret sauce will be in the software, rather than the specs for this particular superphone. So far, the rumours have been that the hardware won't blow anyone away, but new innovations like an always-on voice assistant a la Google Now could be quite interesting.

Looking at the image above, what are your impressions? Do you plan to get in line for the Moto X, or will you wait to see what Apple and others are planning for their next flagship phones?
