Google’s Moto X Could Become Second Android Smartphone To Use A Nano-SIM


Only one Android handset has launched with support for the nano-SIM since it made its debut with the iPhone 5 last fall, and that’s the quirky Asus Padfone Infinity. But Google’s upcoming Moto X is expected to become the second — as you can see from the leaked photo above.

It’s hard to tell if this really is the Moto X. We can just about see that this is a Motorola device thanks to the logo on the corner of its display, but there’s no telling which model it is. Given all the Moto X leaks we’ve seen in recent leaks, however, it’s certainly seems likely that this is another one.

As you can see in the image, the handset supports the tiny nano-SIM card that first made its debut in the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is still the only “mainstream” smartphone that supports it, but you’ll also find nano-SIM support in the Asus Padfone Infinity.

This image surfaced in Hong Kong, and was first spotted by GSM Insider. It likely got their as a result of a production line leak, but this could suggest the Moto X will be available in a number of countries all over the world when it launches this summer.

Google will announce the device tomorrow at an event in New York City, but its launch date is yet to be confirmed.
