It has been revealed that the Moto X will feature a specially-treated Gorilla glass that will not only cover the front of the smartphone but will also wrap around its sides which will account for a neat and gapless design. Google and Microsoft is said to likely call the surface ‘Magic Glass’. The phone is also laminated aluminium and zero-gap construction making it a strong and yet light construction.
