An image of what appears to be the press renders of the upcoming Motorola Moto X+1 appears on the Internet. The leak comes from evleaks, who announced retirement through the twitter profile. Whether more leaks will follow from the most respected self proclaimed authentic leaker of our times is not known.
Renewed activity of evleaks is a blessing for media houses eager to churn out each and every little news that comes out of the manufacturers. However, sad part of the story is that Evan Blass has listed the images as a retirement gift to his twitter followers. So he may not post any further leaks unless he gets cured or get better from a long term illness that is preventing him from completing the daily tasks. The Internet community is offering a helping hand by raising money for the treatment through crowd sourcing.
Motorola Moto X+1 is scheduled to launch in India on September 5 at an event in New Delhi, where other devices like Moto G2 and Moto 360 are also scheduled to make their appearances. The international launch of these devices will happen a day earlier, on September 4, 2014.
The leaked image does not tell a lot about the device, but there is no striking difference from the existing model. The difference that we notice is with rear flashes that seems incorporated over a ring around the camera. The Motorola logo on the rear is very evident this time. On the front there are two speaker grills that are wider than usual. The leaked image is that of a Verizon Moto X+1.
Moto X+1, which is the successor of the hugely successful Moto X, is expected to feature a 5.2 inch full HD display (1920 x1080p). It is powered by a Snapdragon 801 SoC along with 1 GB of RAM. The device will run Android 4.4.4 Kikat OS out of the box. The rear camera will be having a 12 MP sensor and the front camera will have a 2 MP sensor. The price of Moto X+1 is expected to be around Rs. 30,000 for the 16 GB model. The higher memory variants will have a slightly higher price tag.
