Could this be the hotly rumored Motorola X phone? FCC

The highly anticipated and hotly rumored Motorola X phone may have just popped up in FCC filings earlier this week.

According to the paperwork, the Motorola device includes the model number XT1058, and supports earlier rumors that the X phone will be available on AT&T.

For one thing, the handset is enabled for a GSM network, and it appears to be operating on 1900/850 bands -- both factors are indicative of an AT&T device.

The report also notes that the phone has 4G LTE and NFC capabilities.

Ever since Google acquired Motorola, talk of the X handset has been swirling around , and it hasn't slowed down.

While we may not see the X phone in time for Google I/O (which starts on Wednesday), previous "leaked" specs include Android 5.0, an optional wood construction, and an eight-core processor.
