GSM Insider reports that Motorola's hotly anticipated Moto X smartphone will be one of the first Android handsets to utilize the new nano-SIM standard. After a drawn-out battle over which design would be chosen, the Apple-backed nano-SIM proposal was adopted by ETSI, the industry body that decides on standards. Three months later, Apple announced the iPhone 5, which was the first device in the world to use the new SIM. According to GSM Insider's image, which was apparently leaked from Hong Kong, the Moto X will also use the new standard.

We'll know for sure if today's rumor is true when Motorola announces its Moto X at an event this Thursday.
