The first phone expected to arrive with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, the Motorola X is also rumoured to pack Qualcomm's beastly 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, a huge 4000mAh battery and even a sapphire glass screen for the ultimate scratch resistance.
The latest sources also suggest a 4.7in full HD display with a slim bezel – a trick learned from the Motorola Razr i perhaps?
There's no reason given for the delay, although it's been suggested that Google isn't happy with early prototypes, resulting in a trip back to the drawing board.
We're hoping to get all the info straight from Google's mouth at its annual Google I/O event on May 15th, so stay tuned.
