Motorola Razr X will be available on Google Play in July for $299

The rumoured Motorola X will allegedly hit stores and networks in July after debuting at Google I/O on May 15, reports say.

We previously reported the Motorola X would be launched at Google's next I/O event in May and now new information suggests that the phone won't be made available until a few months after that around July 8.

The claim comes from an unnamed source on the Droid Life forums, which also suggests the phone will retail for around $299 - that's around £190 in the UK, but it could just as easily be directly translated to £299.

Apparently the phone will be sold SIM-free on the Google Play store, just like Nexus devices. Previous reports indicated this phone will emphasise Google's ownership of Motorola but probably won't carry the Nexus branding.

The Motorola X will allegedly feature an unlockable bootloader straight out the gate, meaning you'll be able to strip it down to stock Android easily. However, this is only really for US buyers who get the Verizon branded model as the Google Play version runs stock Android already.

There's not much known about the spec at this point, other than a suggested 5-inch edge-to-edge display at 440ppi. We don't yet know whether the phone will carry the Razr branding.

Earlier rumours also suggested this will be the debut device for Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, said to also appear at Google I/O
