Being Google’s executive chairman means being able to play with all the newest toys.

Google is still weeks or months away from officially unveiling its new Moto X, but Eric Schmidt has already been spotted using one. Photographers at this year’s Allen and Co. conference snapped a few photos of the phone, which the Google chairman didn’t seem particularly shy about using.

While previous leaks confirmed that Moto X owners will be able to personalize their devices with a variety of colors and custom engravings, Schmidt seems to be playing it pretty conservative with his version of the phone. The Moto X in the photo has a textured white back and all-black front (it actually looks a bit like the HTC One at first glance).

Google hasn’t said yet when it plans to release the Moto X, though if Schmidt is already using it in public, we can expect it pretty soon.
