With the Moto X rumor mill in overdrive, it's no surprise that yet another reported leak has hit the Web.

This time around, the folks over at Android Police claim to have obtained images of the Moto X's camera user interface. That interface, which is notably different than those in other Motorola devices, relies mainly on gestures to control the camera.

According to the images obtained by Android Police, users can swipe side to side for settings and their gallery. A wheel that's displayed to the left of the camera viewfinder provides access to different features. Users who want to quickly capture a photo will be able to twist their wrists twice to open the camera. Tapping on the display once will take a single picture, while holding the finger down will allow for multiple shots.

Motorola is planning to unveil the Moto X on August 1 in New York. Still, that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from offering up all kinds of specs, including talk of a 4.5-inch screen, a dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor, and 16GB of onboard storage.

Also today, a leak out of China and discovered by Electronista, suggests the 16GB model will come in at $299. The 32GB version will set customers back $349.
