Google Motorola X Phone to have Rear Touch controls

In the last week images and video of an unreleased Motorola smartphone have come into sight online, and now details on the device’s features have begun to arise. Reportedly, this “X” phone will come with touch-controls on its backside and will be compatible with Google Glass.

The first units of Motorola’s “X” device could go on sale as early as this summer, said report. The handset will reportedly come with a round Motorola logo on its rear that will serve as a touch-sensitive button enabling launch commands.

This is similar to Motorola’s Backflip handset from 2010, which came with a clamshell form factor and a trackpad behind its display. The new phone, however, could potentially be the first candy bar-style smartphone to come with touch controls on its backside. In Q3 2012, Google filed a patent for the same type of technology with diagrams showing how these rear controls would work.

This new patent sounds like a feature that would not only set the X Phone apart from current smartphones, but Google would probably open up the API so developers could create even more uses for the rear touch controls.
