Design firm behind Motorola wallpapers may have leaked Moto X (2016)
Stephen MacLeod lives in Toronto and loves photography. He heads his design firm, onwhite, and has clients ranging in eccentricity from Blue Moon to Gillette and even Motorola.
What did he do for the Lenovo subsidiary? He bespoke some wallpapers for the company’s Moto phones, layering colorful glass sculptures to create rich, high contrast, abstract designs. And with good work comes a good portfolio to show off to prospective clients.
But our leader clipping, as pointed out by Evan Blass on Twitter, seems to have revealed not only an unused main wallpaper design, but perhaps the future phone that it might be on.
It does not have the characteristic front-facing, squarish fingerprint sensor of the Moto Z line, going for stereo speakers instead. But that’s all we can gather about this leak.
To be absolutely clear, Blass has not imparted any Moto X connotation to the image, but many in the tech media (yes, even us) are. Still, are hopes still alive for a Moto X (2016) or even a (2017)? They’ve been dashed over and over again. Maybe it’s the headphone jack whiplash or the insurmountable thought of modularity that has us wanting an old Moto.
But we haven’t had forward movement on the topic for so long and this doesn’t necessarily mean that this project’s alive at Motorola.
