Possible Moto X+1 specs leaked in Brazil

Possible Moto X+1 specs leaked in Brazil

If you’re excited about the next flagship from Motorola, you’re not alone. The Moto X was a great example of how an OEM should handle Android, and leaves many who have one clamoring for the next iteration. So far, little has been known, but a slip-up in South America might have blown the cover off what many are calling the X+1.

On launch, the Moto X wasn’t a spec-heavy device. Instead, the flagship Android handset from Motorola relied on the experience, and it delivered. A strong set of tweaks made to Android proved wildly attractive, with many still using and loving their Moto X today.

A Brazilian retailer, Livaria Logos, created a page on their site dedicated to the “Moto X+1”, which gives us a strong hint the working name for the device just might stick around. They also leaked specs, hinting that the next “X” will be a lot like the first in some respects:

  • Screen: 5.2-inch, 1920 x 1080
  • SoC: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Android OS: 4.4.4 KitKat
  • Storage: 32GB, microSD supported (up to 128GB)
  • Battery: 2,900mAh
  • Connectivity: 2G, 3G, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC
  • Camera: 12MP rear, 5MP front

A slightly dated processor (or at least it will be when released), and a screen that pales when compared to the likes of an LG G3. A camera that lacks the megapixel punch we’re used to is also a very “Moto X” thing.

We also don’t get very detailed info on what some of the more specifics could be — what kind of Bluetooth, what WiFi is being worked in? It also doesn’t seem to support LTE, but that might just be a Brazil thing, too. The page is now gone, so either this was just speculative nonsense, or Logos got into a bit of hot water over the listing. Either way, it’s plausible info, and if Motorola gets the price right again — this might be your next Android phone.
