Australian wireless carriers are already seeing potential in Google and Motorola's rumoured X Phone, despite it being still a mystery.

Hugh Bradlow, the chief technology officer for Australian carrier Telstra, is very enthusiastic about the new smartphone. Reportedly Bradlow told senior mobile staff at the firm that X Phone is a "real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple."

"Google has been working on this device for a long time. It has software features and capabilities that are not available on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Apple iPhone. The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other manufacturer has done in the past," said another source.

Recently, the former Marketing Manager for Motorola Mobility in Australia Barry Smyth moved to the USA to head up marketing for the new device.

The new device is officially codenamed as ‘X Phone’ thanks to a LinkedIn job listing. The X Phone's specs are said to include a debut for the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS, along with a virtually bezel-less edge-to-edge 5-inch display.

Rumours have also hinted at a new Nexus-like UI for the X Phone, which is said to bring new features to rival Samsung's S-Beam, S-Voice, and other UI enhancements.

With the Google I/O conference coming up in May, the event could make a fitting unveiling for the mysterious X Phone.
