The next flagship smartphone from Motorola, the Moto X+1, is now nearly confirmed, as a placeholder page for the device has surfaced on the official Moto Maker website.

The purported Moto X+1 has been leaking quite extensively as of late, but this time the leak comes from Motorola itself. The Moto Maker website doesn't show any image of the actual device, nor any details regarding its specifications, but the placeholder listing does confirm the handset's existence and name when it launches.

German site Mobiflip uncovered the placeholder page in question (see image above) after some tinkering with the url of the Moto X on the official Moto Maker website. The placeholder page clearly lists the Moto X+1 name, but doesn't reveal anything else significant for now.

The Moto X launched as Motorola's flagship smartphone of 2013 and while it didn't boast top-notch specifications, it did sport unprecedented customization options that set it apart from the crowd. Motorola is widely expected to launch a Moto X successor this summer, and the Moto X+1 has been starring in various leaks and rumors over the past few weeks. The handset is expected to offer advanced customization options as well, including newer choices such as leather back plates.

Based on rumors so far, the Moto X+1 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat out of the box.

In addition to the upcoming Moto X+1 flagship, Motorola is also expected to introduce a Moto G successor, widely referred to as the Moto E. This handset will reportedly be even more affordable than the budget Moto G and will sport a 720p HD display and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Motorola has scheduled an event on May 13 in London and New Delhi, and the company is expected to unveil the Moto E at said event.

Aside from the upcoming Moto X+1 and Moto E smartphones, Motorola is also bound to launch its much-touted Moto 360 smartwatch this year, which will run Google's new Android Wear OS. Currently there is no information available regarding when exactly the Moto 360 will make its debut.

With a May 13 Motorola event just around the corner, however, we'll soon learn more about at least one of these upcoming devices. We'll be covering the event, so stay tuned for more details.
