Brazilian Retailer Outs Moto X+1 in Leather, Bamboo, and Black – New Moto G Also

moto x1

Brazilian retailer, Livraria Logos, the same site that outed the entire set of specs and press shots for the Moto E a couple of days early, has once again posted early info for Motorola products. As a reminder, this site also posted up Moto X+1 specs extremely early, only to take them down shortly after we noticed them.

So what are they giving us today? First, their Moto X+1 listings have returned with a smaller set of specs, model numbers, and potential materials used as backplates on the device. Also, we are seeing a Motorola device under the familiar name of “Titan” reappear, a device that is more than likely the new Moto G that Motorola will unveil on September 4 along with the new Moto X. 

There are now three Moto X+1 listings on this retailer’s site. The three listings represent three different material backs that Motorola could use when it launches its next-gen phone. First, we have black (“preto”) and bamboo (“bambu”), two options we saw yesterday in new press renders. The third listing is named “couro,” which translates to leather, a material that has been rumored as an option a couple of times now.

The listings also show a model number of XT1097, which has been seen on a number of occasions in benchmarks. The site is listing specs that include a 5.2-inch HD display, 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 13MP camera, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, and Android 4.4.4, as well. Those specs match-up, for the most part, to a variety of benchmarks. We have seen both 13MP and 12MP cameras, along with 2.2GHz and 2.5GHz processors.

As for the “Titan,” which we believe is the new Moto G, we are seeing a model number of XT1069, a 5-inch HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8MP camera, 16GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.4.4. The device also has dual-SIM support, which would make sense for a global budget-friendly phone like the Moto G.

Are you ready for a leather-backed phone? I am.

    God I wish they would stick with the Moto X’s 4.7 inch screen and stop constantly making phones bigger.

  • Robert Boluyt

    White bezels and wooden styling still looks like crap.

    • kashtrey

      That’s the reason, as much as I wanted bamboo, I choose against it.

  • http://godshand79.tumblr.com/ Dorian Brooks

    Images aren’t loading for me. Any save them or know an alternate site with them posted?

  • TR1

    If they don’t change the final design (and it looks like everything is final), I just cannot see myself updating upgrading from original MotoX. The M logo on the back looks out of place even if it’s a button. The speaker grills look cheap. They took the beautiful original design and ruined it with new details

  • ckeegan

    16GB is an absolute deal breaker for me if there isn’t a microSD slot, which I doubt there will be. Hell, even 32GB internal would be a tough pill for me to swallow.

    • bonix

      You mean like how the Moto X is now, or how all the Nexus devices are? I’ve had my 32gb Moto X for a year, have over 2000 pictures with some videos, bunch of games and apps, and I never have to worry about space. What you people put on your phone is beyond me. That said, I wouldn’t complain about having an SD slot, it would be nice.

      • ckeegan

        Since apparently I’m supposed to care how much storage you use, apparently you’ll care that I currently have 48GB taken up on my S4.

  • Mudokon83

    It makes me very sad not seeing any micro-sd for Moto X+1. I REALLY want a good small sized phone, stock os. Damn.

    • ddpacino

      The first X didn’t have one nor have any recent Moto devices. What made you get your hopes up that the X+1 would add one?

      • Mudokon83

        because the LG G2 didnt have one and they put it into the new G3. hopes based on them giving more features, compete with HTC and Samsung who are putting micro-sd’s in their new phones.

      • Cael

        They put one in the Moto E i think.

        • kashtrey

          I think that was so they could get it to hit bargain bin prices but still allow it to “grow” with the population that is buying them.

          • monkeybutts

            They put one in the Moto G with LTE also like 2 months ago.

    • ohshaith55

      sorry, unrelated note, awesome username and profile pic!

  • Matthew

    1GB ram?Are you ucking kidding me?

    • Bootleg Zani

      For the Moto G. Not the Moto X. Therefore who cares?

  • LosttsoL

    Yes! Finally, a leather phone to match your vest and chaps.

  • Kevin

    i want crocodile leather.

  • GJV

    The pics seem to have disappeared. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Robbie Robinson

    Wouldn’t Moto X2 make the most sense?

    • netanil

      Marketing people often don’t make sense.

  • alberteezy

    The only thing I don’t like on the new moto x according the the render is the dimple. Its so big and looks awkwardly placed, but I’ll judge it until I try it out. My hope is that Verizon changed the dimple like what they did with the g2 volume & power keys because they felt like they needed to. haha

  • Phillipe Viana

    Oh no, not these guys again… Have to say it again: this store is not exactly widely known in Brazil. Bet most people that ever heard of it read about that other Moto X+1 leaks by them. (Brazilians, help me here)

  • NBMTX

    So now being the best time to release a[nother] compact 4.7″ device, Motorola’s not going to?
    I imagine a good number of people are going to find the iPhone 6 too large, compared to their previous iPhone. If the Moto X had maintained the same size and shape as last years model, with zippy new specs, I’m pretty confident they probably could have won over some turned off iPhone users in store (with the help of some spiffs, or some sort of rewarding competition, for sales associates). On top of that, the X was/is a great first Android device.

    • Timbo

      If by X you mean the Droid X… Then yes, that was the first great Android device.

      • Brian Cohen

        He said “great first”, not “first great”, as in the Moto X would be a great phone for a user who is new to Android.

        And the OG Droid is the “First Great” android device my friend.

  • http://OmegaDomains.NET BPMΩ

    I just hope it has a MicroSD slot, as one retail “leak” had listed. Honestly, if it does, I’ll buy a Moto X+1 at launch (it’s the ONLY thing I dislike about my Moto X). Plus, it’d be maddening to drop MicroSD support again after adding it to the Moto E and Moto G LTE version.

    • morteum

      I totally agree, but I wonder if they only had MicroSD support in those phones because of the lack of internal storage.

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    There’s something less elegant about this update. The Moto X was petite and it’s accouterments were delicate. This looks kinda brash and weird.

    • NexusMan

      LOL. I agree. But I’m hoping it’s just these unofficial renders.

    • OneForTheGoodDays

      Also, the material they use for that tag on the back looks like the metal they use on griddles.

  • BillySuede

    i would love to see the leaks of the 5.9 inch phone. that one intrigues me.

  • NexusMan

    I was all about bamboo this time around…NOW I’m all about leather!

    • Suicide_Note

      I’m hoping for an S&M edition.

      • HarleyGuy72

        Symphony & Metallica? Now that would be cool!!! :P

  • FortitudineVincimus

    2gb RAM? For the latest and greatest flagship release? Lame.

    • Godzilla

      The jury is still out on actually needing 3GB of Ram

      • FortitudineVincimus

        And what jury is that? The concept of RAM is just as valuable, or more so, than camera PX size, processor speed, overall memory storage, etc. And those all keep going up. The value of RAM and keeping OS and apps and such in short term mem to speed up processes and reduce lag and such is pretty proven.

        Now, how much is needed? Hard to say. But is sure as heck is not 1gb, 2gb is arguable and I bet we will see 3gb is most ideal for the current crop of advanced phones with advanced multitasking and CPUs and they need some room to breath in the RAM.

    • morteum

      IPhone has 1 GB and it runs just fine. My Moto X has 2 GB and after nearly a year it runs fine. I’m amazed at how nit picky people are about specs even to this day.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        “Runs just fine” proves nothing… That is as lame as saying, “8gb memory is just fine” – yeah, maybe for you but not on the real world.

        RAM concept and the bottleneck and speed benefits is beyond proven on computers, same concept applies here. Is there a ceiling effect of how much benefits before you stop seeing speed and fluidity benefits? Sure, I suppose. But it sure as hell is not 1gb.. bwaa ha ha. Go read up on the concept.

        This is like when we started with 256 and then went to 512 and then went to 1. Why were 256 and 512 not good enough and yet you think 1gb on these OS and app intensive CPU hungry monster phones is good enough?

        • morteum

          Sorry, I guess I just felt the need to dumb down my reply based on how simple your comment sounded. Your first mistake is implying that what works for me is insufficient for the “real world.” I don’t know if you know what the real world is like, but I can sure as hell tell you my processing needs far exceed the typical smartphone buyer. Seriously, I’m arguing with some nerd on a tech blog, what makes you think I’m equal with or even less than anyone else in “the real world” when it comes to needs in smartphone specs? On that note, I can assure you I understand the concept of RAM, and how it applies here. That’s where your second mistake comes in. You’re comparing modern smartphones to modern computers. They’re on two completely separate levels. For one, smartphones are not nearly as powerful as you make them out to be, for two, most smartphones continue to use 32 bit architecture- which means they’re limited to 4 GB of RAM anyway. Would I prefer a 3 or 4 GB of RAM Moto X? Sure, why not? Is it necessary? Of course not. We aren’t at that point yet. Just like we weren’t to the point of 1 or 2 GB of RAM when most phones were only using 256 or 512 MB. Mobile processes generally remain around 1 GB or less, even with newer and more powerful phones. The additional memory, at this point, is nothing more than a a safety net. If you’re topping out around 2 GB, then I can guarantee you’re in the minority. If that is the case, this phone is not for you, go get a G3 or a Note 4.

  • MikeSaver

    I just want a G3… but is it stupid to buy an off contract phone less than a year after buying another off contract phone (Moto X)

    The answer is, yes.

    • morteum

      The answer is, “depends on your income.”

    • tu3218

      I bought my Moto X off someone in Feb or March I believe, and this week I just got a G3. So it’s not stupid, as long as you’re not killing yourself financially. I had sold my S4 for the Moto X, made money. Picked up my brand new, in box G3 for $400 and sold my Moto X for $300. Only cost me $100 to go from the X to the G3. Just gotta find the deals that makes it an okay deal and than I don’t see any problem with it.

      • MikeSaver

        Is there anything you miss from the Moto X? Not having the true Active Display seems like a bummer to me. I know theres the app that replicates it, but I mean the pickin the phone up and it showing time/notifications, etc.

        Also, where did you buy your G3 and sell your Moto X, etc?

        • tu3218

          Main thing I miss is the form factor of the X. But if you want a bigger screen, you have to get a bigger phone so it is what it is. As for losing Active Display, I’ve been okay with it surprisingly. I missed having a notification light actually. I know of that app you speak of but I haven’t even bothered to look it up because so far I’m doing just fine without it. I do miss pulling it out of my pocket to see the time but it’s okay. Gotta make some sacrifices. I think what you get with the G3, it beats out for sure what you’d lose with getting rid of the X.

          I bought my G3 off craigslist. All packaged up, and met the guy at a Verizon to set it up. Moto X I sold on eBay.

          • MikeSaver

            Thanks for the info! did you use touchless control regularly at all? I’d think I wouldn’t miss it (in the car where I used it most) because the hot word works as long as the screen is turned on now, right?

          • tu3218

            I wouldn’t say regularly at all. Occasionally at best. It was a great feature but didn’t find a use for it that much. Correct!

  • chris_johns

    well…my hopes of the x+1 are diminished….but then again my moto x will last me till next years x+2(?) lol…hopefully they will make better options and a smaller size and design it to look more like the og moto x….but bring on the 360!

    • morteum

      I think you might want to reconsider your position. By the time the 2015 Moto X comes out Motorola will be owned by Lenovo. This means there will probably be either a complete shake-up on design and features or there will just be more of the same. I wouldn’t recommend holding out and hoping things will return to the way you like.

  • Bryan Mills

    Basically something i could have gotten in 2013.

    • NexusMan

      Wow, I missed that leather backed, Active Display, Touchless Control, X8 optimized, 5.2″HD, 13mp, 2gb Ram, Android 4.4.4 running, +1 device from 2013. I always seem to miss these things when they come out! And I could have gotten it in 2013, you say?

      • MistaButters

        X8 was because dual core CPU (+2), quad core GPU (+4), and 2 context cores (+2).

        So this won’t be “X8″ anything.

        The 801 already has quad core CPU, quad core GPU, and a context core all by itself, so all the 800/801 phones are already “X9″.

        • NexusMan

          LOL….ok

          • MistaButters

            I’m just saying, I don’t think you understand where the “X8″ came from, and you have no proof to back up they’ve done anything special to the processor.

            And all the higher end Snapdragons have context cores now, so Motorola probably doesn’t need to make any changes.

            Not saying it won’t be different, but you bragging about a phone based on a personal assumption.

          • Greyhame

            Moto’s lead engineer stated the work they did developing the X8 could be paid forward using next generation chipsets. While they may just go 801, I would be surprised if they completely ditched their proprietary architecture. I hope they don’t, as I love the functionality of my MAXX.

          • MistaButters

            Yeah we will see if the single context core in the 801 is enough to support the always listening and active display. If it is, I don’t see the need to invest a lot of time and energy into chip design just to do it. I guess we will find out in a couple weeks.

            But still, they’d have to call it something besides “X8″ because it would have more than 8 cores. :P

          • Greyhame

            Agreed, we’ll know soon enough! My point was that they had already invested the time in the X8 architecture, and then actually stated that swapping chipsets wasn’t a long putt due to the work upfront. Time will tell!

        • NBMTX

          If they’re going to use the contextual motion co processor, then they’d probably want to use the dsp as well (so X10? maybe). Both seem to be relative to Moto Assist, Touchless Controls, and Active display… and P.Soni had previously suggested that Moto Assist was only going to be further developed and begin to rely more on those functions [mixing]. I particularly hope that this year will have similarly proprietary goodness, as I’m not trying to get every other flagship in a Motorola body.
          I did that last year with my SD-800 powered N5 vs the [initially overpriced] Moto X I really wanted, and I regret it every day, mid-afternoon, when my battery is already at less than 50%. (it’s 5pm and my N5’s charge is at 20%, fml)

          • MistaButters

            How hard do you use your N5? Battery isn’t great, but my phone makes it through most days. (3 hours on screen ish)

          • NBMTX

            I guess I’d say I’ve used Chromecast a bit more today which equates to more screen on time, but I also didn’t drive during rush hour, which is harder Waze time removed. Though I don’t use Waze without being plugged in to a car charger. I have chances to charge so it never dies but it’s still bothersome almost every day.

            Even on days where I use it much less, the battery shows significant wear down at idle. It’s bad enough that I’ve been considering an affordable used Moto X ,which I know could make it through most days even with my use. I’m just waiting untill the successor is announced, just in case the price isn’t as high as last year at launch…
            or maybe Project Volta will help in some way or another.

          • MistaButters

            Hmm. Are you on fringe service? My N5 uses about 2-3% of battery per hour idling. When it deep sleeps, it uses around 1% per hour. In airplane mode, it uses around 1% per 7-8 hours.

    • MistaButters

      Early 2014 :p

    • Joe O

      I feel like you have a google alert setup for “x+1″, and your job is to find those articles and post negative feedback on this one single phone.

    • RoyD77

      Maybe. But it will very likely run better & faster than that something you could have gotten in 2013. It certainly will get updated faster, and for longer, than that something you could have gotten in 2013. And for all the specs, I’d guess it’ll be in a smaller form factor than that something you could have gotten in 2013. Plus you’d have paid $650-699 off contract for it then. Let’s see what this goes for when it gets announced.

  • Detonation

    Hopefully the leather is real leather and not just a fake printed laminate like the “wood” backs are (other than bamboo)

    • NexusMan

      All of the wood backs are real wood. They just aren’t the actual wood of their namesake, save for Bamboo.

      • Detonation

        Yea, they’re a single layer of some thin pressed wood covered by a laminate with the grain pattern printed on it that feels very fake. Not much better different than just putting a skin on your phone. Especially if you get a defective one like this: http://i.imgur.com/qIWJ3OR.jpg

        • Suicide_Note

          Are those air bubbles the arrows are pointing at?

          • Ubi2447

            Yes

          • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

            Looks like it. I have the same one, without the bubbles, and it does look and feel very fake. I don’t see why having fake, laminated wood was a selling point.

          • Cael

            because Samsung, LG, and HTC aren’t doing it!

        • Blue Sun

          The Verizon logo looks good though…

        • NexusMan

          Well, I’ve had 2, neither defective. And of course anything that’s a permanent part of the build of your phone is better than a self pressed on skin. And quality, durability, and warranty aside, I’m sorry, but these eyesores just don’t compare.

  • TheRunner024

    Only 16 GB…

      Sure it’s only 16GB but if you think abo…ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.

  • Michael Bassett

    Why do I get a feeling a DROID is going to be released shortly after this that will blow it away?

    • chris_johns

      i hope so

      • Johngi

        Yes the updated Droid Maxx.,

    • Godzilla

      um yeah……the droid turbo

    • NexusMan

      A Droid that will get updated MONTHS later than this will be, and will be preloaded with extra bloat.

      • Michael Bassett

        Didn’t the Droid MAXX get 4.4 or something before the Moto X?

        • NexusMan

          Verizon Moto X was 1st non Nexus device to get Kit Kit, even before the Nexus 4, and some Nexus 10 and Nexus 7s.

          • Charlie R.

            The Droid line did receive 4.4 before any Moto X variant.

          • Diablo81588

            Wrong. They got the 4.4.4 update before, not the initial kit Kat update.

          • Charlie R.

            That’s what I meant to say. My mistake.

          • Brian Cohen

            the Droid line (Maxx/Ultra/Mini) received android 4.4.4 a good while before the Moto X.

          • NexusMan

            Not talking about 4.4.4

  • merle

    Would be wonderful to have the front face plates in more colors that just black and white. Can’t be that difficult to do.

  • Suicide_Note

    Shame that good specs can’t fix an ugly design.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      May not be as ugly as those renders have led you to believe. :)

        You holding out on us?

        • koopadoop

          Others aren’t, take a trip down Google lane

          • Charlie R.

            Still not seeing anything besides the leaked Verizon renders from last night.

          • kashtrey

            DL actually ran the pics they’re talking about, I’m lazy to find it for you. I think Android Police broke the story though.

          • Hayden7200

            I just did a quick search and couldn’t find any additional pictures or renders. Do you have a link that you could share as to what others aren’t hold out on? I’m dying for as much Moto X+1 news as possible! Thanks.

      • Bryan Mills

        Leaked pics still don’t look good to me. White is ATROCIOUS

        • morteum

          Black is definitely way better, but I felt that way with the first gen Moto X too.

        • NexusMan

          White phones are ALWAYS atrocious to me.

        • Greyhame

          We get it, bro. Don’t you have anything better to do?

      • Dave

        Stop lying to yourself dude the new moto design sucks, of course you will disagree with me because you love moto and nothing else!

        • bkosh84

          Yeah dude because everyone needs to agree with your opinion and no one elses!

        • morteum

          The new Moto design is hardly different than the old one. Just because it has a slightly larger dimple and a camera ring now the whole idea is suddenly terrible?

          • NexusMan

            I do think the button on the back on the wood version (at least in renders) doesn’t look good. I think the black version looks pretty sweet, though.

          • morteum

            Oh I agree. The white/wood version is definitely worse. I was just pointing out how idiotic that guys comment was when he said the “new design sucked,” implying that a couple small changes (for better or worse) somehow makes the entire design language bad.

            IMO the black has always been the way to go. If you take the leaks Android Police covered a while back (http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/07/25/leaked-photos-of-a-motorola-pre-production-device-this-may-be-the-moto-x1/) and apply darker colors this phone won’t look nearly as bad as people are saying it will.

          • NexusMan

            I’m anxious to get my eyes on that leather.

          • TR1

            Yes. Seemingly little details like this ruin the overall design. There was no reason to make the cool looking dimple with silver logo into a cheap plastic looking button or whatever. They could have made it similar to iPhone home button if it is in fact a button. The ring around the camera doesn’t bother me at all but the speaker grills scream cheap.

      • Suicide_Note

        Unfortunately the renders are all I’ve seen to base my opinion on up to this point. If I see other shots that look better, then I may change my mind. Just have to wait and see.

      • Fabricio Tomasini

        I hope so…

      • jb

        Yea but the leaks that came out a couple weeks ago didn’t look too good either

      • niuguy

        You know something. *rubs chin*

    • C-Law

      Since it’s basically identical to the moto X, your comment makes no sense to me

      • scastro87

        Seriously, basically the only thing different is the speaker on the bottom and people are FREAKING out.

        • Suicide_Note

          The only thing? Did you miss the different Moto dimple, camera ring, front facing speskers, etc? The white phone in particular looks terrible compared to the previous Moto X.

          • Cael

            Design off MotoMaker or get the black one.

    • Cael

      Atleast they showed HTC how to get bezels right with dual front facing speakers…

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    I don’t buy into the megapixel race and think the titan actually sounds okay, if the sensor is solid and not crap like the OG Moto X.

  • Godzilla

    I’d say the specs are all but confirmed now considering all the different sources. Im happy with them, bu it looks like if you are a verizon customer and you want a super phone, the droid turbo is the way to go.

    • CasperTFG

      I forgot, is this the 5.9″ coming out in December?

        Do I have to use trinomial properties for this?

        • El Big CHRIS

          Your choice of that or the invite system ;)

            Just make it like cars where 5 years from now on Craigslist there will be an ad “2015 moto X for sale, leather back ”

      Still might not be official. Could be the codename or placeholder being used to signify that it’s the next version. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s just the “new” Moto X.

        Is this what you’ve been “hearing”?

          I have seen some information referencing it as the “new Moto X” internally. That’s why I wouldn’t fully buy into X+1 just yet.

          • Droid Ronin

            Or could be the Moto X (2014 edition).

        I hope you’re right. X+1 is a horrible name.

          The name is not going to stop me from buying this device.

          The only thing that might stop me from buying this device is if The Moto Nexus comes to verizon, and that is still a big maybe

      • Moto Girl

        That is exactly what it will be called. The new Moto X

          As long as it’s not “The all new Moto X (+1)”, I’m happy.

      • Robert Boluyt

        Didn’t the community kinda name the X’s sequel X+1? I don’t think it came from any Moto leaks.

    • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

      Im good with it as long as the +1 doesnt mean I need an invite to buy one. Yeah im looking at you one plus one

        No worries, you only have to show a bunch of adolescent boys in the company forum some sexy pics with maybe a little cleavage. Nothing degrading at all.
