Here’s the best Moto X+1 leak we have seen so far

by: Edgar CervantesAugust 21, 2014


We are found only a couple weeks away from Motorola’s September 4th event, where the Moto X+1 (among other devices) is said to be announced. The device has been no stranger to the rumor mill. We have all kinds of images, rumored specs and details, but today’s leak is a bit more special.

This happens to be the clearest image of the Moto X+1 we have seen, showing the device in decent definition. It also shows the previously-rumored wood design (shown below), giving more credibility to both reports. Another reason why this post is important is because Evan Blass (@evleaks) is giving it to us as his “retirement gift”.

The popular leakster recently announced his retirement. He will seek greener pastures and more stability. We definitely thank him for this awesome image and hope he finds what he needs.

As for the Moto X+1 leak – another interesting detail is that this image clearly showcases the Verizon logo in the back of the devices. Previous rumors indicate the Moto X+1 is to reach Verizon on September 25th; definitely a day to mark on your calendars. You know, just in case!

Rumored specs include a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 32 GB of internal storage, 12MP/5MP cameras and a 2900 mAh battery.

Like with any rumor, we would advice that you take any of this information with a healthy dose of sodium chloride. No official details on the Moto X+1 have been announced yet. Let’s keep our eyes open and wait for the September 4th announcement.

    Heck yes. Thanks Ev!
    Looks great. I just hope it has an SD slot. And is more like 5″ than 5.2.

  • Luka Mlinar

    That’s one of the ugliest phones i have ever seen.

    • Luka Mlinar

      Make that 3 things: The top and bottom silver bar, the camera button and the inflated Motorola badge.

        I actually think the logo will be customizable in Moto Maker. In the new pic above, it almost looks like the logo is on cloth.

        • Luka Mlinar

          If by customizable you mean the we can make it smaller like the original one than yes, that would be good. However unlikely, even if that way true, the other two details still ruin the design for me.

            It isn’t called the moto x+1 for nothing. Deal with it for its size.

          • Luka Mlinar

            I was talking about the logo.

      • thelastguyX20

        The top and bottom silver bar are the front speaker bars we need so we can stop having to cup our hand to hear sound. This need to be standard; looks weird but I’m sure they’ll improve it overtime.

      I agree. Though not that ugly, it does look very derivative, like any other Samsung phone. Love my Moto X. Perfect size and shape for my hand. Only thing I want was an upgrade in battery, screen resolution, and processor and I would gladly upgrade.

      • Luka Mlinar

        Those 3 things is what everyone wanted. They just had to do more. -.-‘

    Heavy dose of sodium chloride if you meant salt. Not just sodium.

    • Edgar Cervantes

      Haha! Thanks for the clarification.

  • Brent

    The date on the phone says September 17. Could that possibly be the release date?

  • Cole Raney

    The front looks like a galaxy s series device with no physical buttons.

  • billard412

    Wonder what’s blacked out up top

    • abqnm

      The engineering prototype ID numbers I am sure.

  • crutchcorn

    Can’t tell if real ugly or very pretty

  • Jesus

    quick, put a bag over it!

  • Sal

    Let’s give them a chance. It may look better when seen in person.

  • Kash Gummaraju

    you know leaks always look horrible regardless of pic quality. The htc one(m8 and m7) are 2 examples. People were calling the phones ugly until they were actually announced and demoed in professional videos and released in stores for purchase.

  • ThunderCrackR

    Has anyone seen the sensor placed in every corner of the device? What are they for?
