In February Motorola promised it would be revealing a new flagship handset by the summer that would take the Moto X’s place at the top of their line-up. Since then we’ve slowly but surely seen several leaks that give us a better idea of what the Moto X+1 will bring to table, and a recent image even gave us a better look at the device’s design.
Today it seems a few more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, as a new rumor earlier today claimed the handset will have a Snapdragon 801 CPU and now a report has surfaced indicating that Verizon will launch the X+1 on September 25th. The latest report comes to us via Droid-Life, which says it received the news through its own sources.
It’s important to remember that these kinds of reports are almost impossible to verify, so we’d take all of this with a grain of salt. That said, the timeframe falls in line with Motorola’s promise of releasing the device this summer — sort of. Technically summer ends on September 22nd, but at the very least Motorola will probably take the wraps off the device a bit before that. It’s also possible that a few of the U.S. carriers will see the handset arrive ahead of Verizon.
If the report is true, we imagine we can also expect the Moto 360 to be officially released sometime around the same timeframe. What do you think, plan to pick up the Moto X+1 when it arrives next month, if the date is in fact correct?
