More specs have leaked for the Moto X successor, the Moto X+1, detailing the company's next flagship smartphone set to launch later this year.

The Moto X+1 is expected to launch alongside the Moto 360 smartwatch powered by Google's new Android Wear OS, and both devices will reportedly be available through the Moto Maker customization engine. This automatically indicates at least some degree of customization, which makes sense especially for the Moto X successor.

The Moto X came with mid-range specs that were utterly unimpressive, but Motorola still managed to make an interesting proposition with the smartphone's unprecedented and unparalleled customization options. The Moto X+1 seems to be headed down the same road, as the newly-leaked specifications reveal nothing breathtaking.

According to Droid-Life, Brazilian retailer Livraria Logos has posted details about the Moto X+1 before Motorola got to make it official. The retailer has since pulled the page in question, but nothing ever really goes away once it's been posted online. If the source sounds a bit odd, it's worth pointing out that Livraria Logos has accurately leaked the Moto E before it made its official debut. While this is no guarantee that the Moto X+1 info is accurate, it does add to its credibility.

Moreover, Motorola seems to have a special bond with Brazil, as the company launched both the Moto G and the Moto E with special treatment for the country. On the other hand, the Moto X+1 is expected to be higher-end compared to the Moto G and Moto E, and preferential treatment for Brazil may not be a given with this one.

In terms of specifications, the retailer reveals that the Moto X+1 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage capacity. The handset will also come with microSD card support for additional memory of up to 128GB. Other specs will reportedly include a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter, a pretty weak 2,900 mAh battery, and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4G connectivity options. On the software side, the Moto X+1 should come running Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box.

Judging by these leaked specifications, the Moto X successor will likely not pack any impressive hardware either, but Motorola may offer other strong points with the Moto X+1 just like it did with the Moto X. On the other hand, the company has since changed parents and is no longer Google-owned, which means that it remains to be seen just how it will perform under Lenovo's wing.
