Nexus 5, Motorola X, Google X: Set For Early AT&T Exclusive?

By Matthew Klickstein , May 02, 2013 02:36 PM EDT

It seems there's speculation about the forthcoming Nexus 5 — also known as the Motorola X — coming out in August with an exclusivity deal through AT&T that will last three months. The price scheme for the AT&T Nexus 5, it seems, will also be similar to that of the Nexus 4.

The Nexus 5 or Motorola X will otherwise be coming out in November, it's assumed, with anyone not with AT&T having to wait a few months to get their hands on the smartphone that has been topping many gadget geek wish lists.

This new rumor about the Nexus 5 or Motorola X (so-called, as the phone has yet to be officially named by Google) was offered up by Android And Me and relayed by International Business Times on Thursday, May 2.

Along with the name "Motorola X," it is also said that the so-called Nexus 5 from Google may also be called the "Google X" or "Google Nexus X." It may also be the first device that will come with the forthcoming Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

We can all only hope that whatever the Nexus 5 might actually be called by Google, we'll be seeing something about it at the Google I/O event happening in San Francisco in two weeks' time.

"The reported features and specs of Nexus 5 include the all-time activated voice control, predictive intelligence that allows the users to launch apps and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor," IBT reminds us. "Incorporating the Snapdragon 600 processor as an alternative will offer the Nexus 5 with a lower competitive price against other rival smart phones in the market."

Despite the fact that many believe the Nexus 5 or Motorola X will be showing up in some way at the Google I/O event, there's no reason to believe this may not be so due to A) The possibility a new Nexus 4 variant will be released first, B) The fact that Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie may be getting delayed for a rumored Android 4.3 Jelly Bean launch.

What are your thoughts on the Nexus 5/Motorola X discussion? Which name do you prefer and do you think it will show up at Google I/O? Let us know in the comments below!
