Whether or not Google has really pulled out of its “X Phone” project with Motorola, it seems that the device will still be making its way to AT&T sometime in the near future. AndroidGuys has spotted a filing at the Federal Communications Commission showing a new Motorola phone called the “Motorola XT1058” that looks very similar to leaked pictures of the X Phone that we saw earlier this year. The FCC filing shows that the new device will be supported by AT&T’s network, although it doesn’t give any technical specifications for the phone other than that it will support LTE, HSPA+ and Wi-Fi connectivity. Late last week we started hearing rumors that Google had backed out of its role in developing the device and would leave Motorola to finish up the project alone, which could very well reduce interest in the new phone when it’s finally released.
