In addition to rampant iPhone rumours, there is also plenty of chatter about a new Google phone.

The so-called X-phone is reportedly being developed by Motorola’s Skunk Works and it should feature a world beating spec. The headline feature will apparently be a new 5-inch screen with a tiny bezel, which will allow designers to come up with a very compact design, possibly the smallest 5-incher to date.

If the latest rumours are to be believed, the X-phone could debut at Google I/O in May. But why is Google coming up with an entirely new brand, rather than just expanding its Nexus line?

However, some things don’t add up. The uncorroborated report claims that Motorola is working on a new user interface for the phone and some software additions to improve OS functionality.
