Motorola's Moto X is expected launch on August 1 at an event being held by Motorola and Google, but new leaks today show off the final renders for the device as well as what appears to be a "Magic Glass" molded front.


This so-called "Magic Glass" is said to be a sheet of Gorilla Glass that has been molded to create a one-piece continuous surface that wraps around the entire front of the device including the edges. In some leaked images, we can see that this appears to be true and the glass even includes molded clips to hold it to the phone chassis.


Additionally, we saw today the final PR renders for the device leaked by everyone's favorite leakster @evleaks. The devices appear to have lost the carbon fiber backing we saw on the original renders and appears to have adopted a more original Nexus 7 like finish on the back plate. Stay tuned to TweakTown next week for full coverage when Motorola and Google officially unveil the Moto X.
