We've been hearing about the Moto X in increasing detail over the past weeks, especially now that Motorola has ramped up its advertisement campaign in time for the 4th of July holiday. Now, according to a leaked screenshot, we see how the handset will be offered to our Canadian friends: as an exclusive from Rogers.

The information comes from the folks at MobileSyrup, who nabbed a picture taken of a Rogers internal document, which shows a bit of its Android focus and plans, with one in particular standing out among the rest - a tidbit of information next to an "Android Max" info box that says "EXCLUSIVE Moto X Phone". You can see it yourself in the image above.

The "Android Max" in the image above is referring to one of the carrier's campaigns, which will apparently be kicked off in the third quarter of this year. It is targeted at individuals who "live on their phones," and will be comprised of LTE devices and those who want "Max Android data." If you recall, Rogers announced seven new locations that it would be expanding its LTE network to.

According to MobileSyrup, the Moto X will be available for Canadian buyers via Rogers on August 1, just a little over three weeks from now. As you likely guessed based on the image above, it will be offered on the carrier's LTE Max network. Unfortunately, the one piece of information that is still missing is pricing.

In case you missed it, on June 26, Google rolled out an updated Motorola logo, which features a subtle color palette hinting at the wide array of color options the handset will be offered in, as well its own logo at the bottom, showing off its ownership of the company. Per a tip earlier today, word has it the Moto X will be announced on July 10 or 11th, with the latter date being more likely. Among others reasons, speculation has the it the "X" and "I" formed by two individuals jumping into water in Motorola's ad from earlier this week are a subtle hint.
