Moto X+1 leaks in first image, along with some spec and launch details (VIDEO)
Motorola's next flagship smartphone, the Moto X+1, is now the star of a new leak that shows part of the handset and details some of its specs.
The company hasn't done a very good job in keeping its Moto X successor under tight wraps, and the Moto X+1 has already leaked on several occasions. Even Motorola itself "accidentally" gave some not-so-subtle hints over the past few months, and the new smartphone's upcoming launch is all but confirmed.
TK Tech News Blog now offers a first look at the purported Moto X+1, the much-rumored successor to the popular Moto X. The publication claims to have obtained the information from an inside source, who also provided a photo of the device (or at least part of it).
The photo in question is not high-quality only and shows the bottom half of the purported Moto X+1, which means that we still don't have a proper image of the alleged smartphone. Nevertheless, this photo reveals that the upcoming Moto X successor will sport more rounded corners, likely borrowing some design cues from the Motorola Droid Ultra. TK Tech said it will post more images very soon, but for now this is it.
In terms of specifications, the blog's source claims to have some solid information. The Moto X+1 will reportedly have a full HD 1080p display and 2GB of RAM, but there's no mention of the type of processor so far. The publication reveals that the Moto X+1 will launch in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB internal storage configurations, complete with microSD support for additional memory.
Lastly, TK Tech has also learned from its source that this purported Moto X+1 should make its official debut sometime in late August or September. This timeframe would coincide with the expected launch timeframe for Samsung's Galaxy F (the metal, premium version of the current Galaxy S5 flagship, previously referred to as the Galaxy S5 Prime), as well as Apple's highly-anticipated iPhone 6.
If this turns out to be accurate, Motorola would have to step up its game if it wants to join the race at such a time, alongside Apple and Samsung. Nothing is official at this point, however, so take this report with a grain of salt. TK Tech says it will follow up with more information, but in the meantime you can check out the video commentary below.
