Motorola X With Key Lime Pie to Debut During Google I/O?

During this year's Google I/O, which commences on May 15th, the search engine giant is expected to announce the rumored Motorola X smartphone.

According to an unnamed source on Droid Forum, the Motorola X will feature a 5-inch display, which will be edge-to-edge and nearly bezel-free. The device is also expected to run Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie.

It apparently won't be a Nexus model as it'll be available through multiple carriers, with Verizon missing out on offering the phone exclusively. The user interface, meanwhile, will integrate some Motorola add-ons.

Google isn't known to introduce non-Nexus devices at Google I/O, but the search engine giant is expected to make an exception with a Motorola device when considering it hasn't launched any major devices since being acquired by the former for $12.5 billion last year.

    As if I didn't already have enough reasons to leave Verizon. I was waiting for this phone to come out to renew my plan. I expect a google made phone to really be something worth buying. No specs yet, but it sounds like it's time to find a new carrier.
