Motorola has done a pretty remarkable job at keeping its next flagship, largely thought to be dubbed the Moto X+1, under wraps. And then a couple of hours ago, a whole series of pictures of a device that may just be the next Moto X, leaked in a big way. We are talking front, back, side, top, bottom angles of a phone with a wood back, large camera sensor, and Moto X styling throughout. Let’s talk about it. (more…)
The crew over at HelloMotoHK posted the image above this morning, which looks like the back case for what could be an unreleased Motorola phone. To be more specific, if real, I would peg this for the back casing of a new DROID device. Motorola, as we know from last year, has the exclusive on the DROID brand with Verizon going forward, a brand that tends to use materials like kevlar which is seen here. (more…)
A Brazilian retailer called Livraria Logos, who just so happened to post Moto E specs two days before the phone was announced, has created a working page for the yet-to-be-announced Moto X+1, with a full list of specs. Outside of those, there are no real images of the phone or other marketing materials like we saw when the Moto E leaked early. We aren’t fully sure what to make of this site since all we know about it is a Moto E premature posting, but since they were spot on with the Moto E, we might as well give them a second look. (more…)
It seems Motorola was not kidding when it gave a launch timeframe of “late summer” for the show-stopping Moto 360. According to PhoneArena, the company plans to coincide the smartwatch’s release with the unveiling of the Moto X+1. If history is any indication, that could place a retail date squarely in August.

Yesterday, a reported render of an encased Moto X+1 made the rounds, but no one could help but poke at the fact that the phone does not look all that good. For starters, there appears to be no front-facing camera, the phone features a massive chin on its front side, and this now-known Incipio case covers up any LED the device may have. These things led most people to believe that there is no way we were looking at Motorola’s next flagship device.
This morning, thanks to another leak from @evleaks, the exact source of yesterday’s render is now known. As we can see in the full image below, this case is designed for Verizon’s Motorola “Victara,” which has been a standing codename for the Moto X+1. (more…)
Motorola’s Punit Soni may or may not have just confirmed to us that the next Moto device will have a 1080p screen. The question now is – what phone was he using? Is it the Moto X+1 or something else altogether? Thanks to a leak through Hello Moto HK, who did some digging around in Motorola’s Bug2Go software, we may have a couple of options to consider. They were able to find six codenames for unreleased Motorola devices, a couple of which could be for the Moto 360, another than has to be the Moto X+1, and one that mentions “VoLTE” and “VZW.” (more…)
Is that the first image of the Moto X+1, the rumored Moto X follow-up from Motorola? That we don’t know, but there are some clues that could help us decide what it is.
Well, it certainly isn’t the original Moto X. On the original, the sensors, speaker grill, and front-facing camera are pushed up to the top of the phone and also not perfectly centered together. The Moto X also does not come with a gold front. The only front panel color options for the Moto X are white or black. (more…)
