Moto X+1 to be the first Motorola smartphone with Full HD display, alleged image leaked
Motorola is working on its next flagship smartphone, the Moto X+1 and the moniker has been leaked quite a few times courtesy of a placeholder on the Moto Maker website. The information about the hardware has been leaked but we’ve never had a picture to relate the pieces of information. But today we have for you the picture of what appears to be the Moto X+1 and the device surely looks a step ahead of the Moto X.
It has to be noted that the phone in the image above does not have any company logo on it, so it is quite difficult to make out if its a photoshopped image or a real deal. What all the device will bring with it in terms of specs is still unknown but it has been stated in the previously that it will come with as many as 25 back panel options and Motorola is already known for the back panel options it brings to the table.
According to GFXBench listing, Moto X+1 will come with a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It has been reported to come with a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 GPU for graphics purpose and 2GB of RAM.
The smartphone is said to run on Android 4.4.3 KitKat, and will have 32GB of internal storage, 12MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front facing camera, both capable of recording Full HD 1080p videos.
The successor of the popular Moto X is expected to be announced in the second half of 2014 and we can safely expect it to go on sale in the period of July-August.
In related to the news, Motorola's VP of product management, Punit Soni has posted a screenshot on his Google+ profile showing that users can now decide to hide the carrier name in the status bar in the Android 4.4.3 update. The screenshot was taken from a smartphone with a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, meaning that Soni is not using the Moto E, Moto G, Moto X or any of the DROID devices, since all those smartphones have resolution of 720p or lower.
Since Moto X+1 is rumoured to come with a Full HD display, it is highly possible that Punit Soni is using the unannounced Moto X+1. Expect to hear more about Moto X+1 in the coming weeks.
