Mystery Motorola phone running Android L caught on video


Motorola Mobility’s ownership may be stuck in regulatory limbo, but the soon to be Lenovo-owned company definitely has some handsets in its pipeline. This time around we’re looking at an unidentified Motorola device that appears to running Android L. Allegedly running on Verizon’s network, the still shots of this smartphone reveal that it’s larger than a Nexus 5, which packs a 4.95-inch display.

As for the phone’s sketchy masking tape overcoat, it’s said to be there to hide identifying markings that could out the device’s owner. Skepticism aside, this could be Big Red’s version of the rumored Moto X+1, however the video’s narrator claims that the carrier has three Motorola Droid phones scheduled to release later this year. We’ve reached out to Verizon for comment and will update this news story if the company shares any new detail. In the meantime check out the video below and feel free to share your thoughts on this mystery device.
