The Moto X+1 has been talked about for quite a while now and is expected by many to be the successor to the Moto X from 2013. Recently thanks to a parting gift from famed leaker @evleaks, we caught a glimpse of the handset’s press rendering and now thanks to Brazilian online retailer Livaria Logos, the specs of the upcoming handset and the new Moto G have been revealed. Now why should we believe a retailer’s specs, you ask? Well for starters, Livaria Logos was responsible for revealing the accurate Moto E specs ahead of its announcement, so there is a good chance that the specs they’ve got for the Moto X+1 and the new Moto G could be accurate as well.
Ahead of Motorola’s much-anticipated September 4 launch event to be held in Chicago, we have been treated again to a leaked image claimed to be of the successor to the Moto X. This time it comes from usually spot-on tipster Evan Blass, popularly known as @evleaks, who notes in a tweet, “My retirement gift to you.” For those unaware, Blass announced his retirement from tech leaks earlier this month, citing his multiple sclerosis and financial conditions as the reason. The alleged Moto X+1 render from the tipster goes well in-line with previous leaks and shows the alleged handset with Verizon branding, tipping that the Moto X (Review | Pictures) successor will be available on the mobile carrier. The render further shows the handset in two versions – one Black, and the other with a wooden back. It’s worth noting that the current leaked renders of the alleged Moto X+1 are the best images thus far in terms of quality, and clearly shows the icons on the display of the handset. The leaked render shows the front panel of the handset sporting dual speaker grills both on the top and bottom of the display, like theMoto E (Review | Pictures). The back of the device is seen with the rear camera in the centre just above the Motorola logo, and is accompanied by dual-LED flash lights placed on the both sides of the camera. The new camera setup does tip that the company might introduce a new photography technology, along the lines of HTC’s dual camera set-up seen first on the HTC One (M8).
