It seems Motorola’s been quite the busy company with the announcement of the Moto 360 at Google I/O and leaks of the upcoming Moto X+1. It looks to be another fun filled summer for the manufacturer. Rumours of the much rumoured follow up to the successful Moto X, which is customizable via Moto Maker, seems to be coming out everywhere. This time a retail outlet in Brazil has supposedly leaked the confirmed specifications of the device.
The Moto X+1 details leaked by the retailer state that the Moto X+1 will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM. The phone is supposed to come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display with a 12 Megapixel main camera and a 5 MegaPixel front facing selfie camera. It will also have 32GB of storage with expansion via microSD and will run on a 2900mAh battery.
The specifications of the Moto X+1 definitely make it a real contender with the market and is leaps ahead of the Moto X. However, no confirmation of the specifications has come from Motorola themselves. The device is supposed to launch sometime this summer and is rumoured to be accompanied by the Moto 360, Motorola’s much anticipated Android Wear powered Smartwatch. Both devices are rumoured to come with Motorola’s customisation service, Moto maker, support.
It seems that along with rumours of the devices and their specifications, Motorola’s Moto maker support is now heading to Europe. The service which launched with the Moto X, has opened it doors in Germany just this past week and is offering its customisations to customers via Phone House.
It is expected more customisation options will hit the Moto maker service with the launch of the Moto X+1 and Moto 360 later this summer. We’ll have to wait and see whether support for Moto Maker makes it to Asia. Nonetheless, the upcoming Motorola flagship is looking to be really compelling. Given Motorola’s successes in supporting updates to their devices, even their entry level Moto E, it will be quite the device, and one that will last for quite a while if Motorola continues down the road it’s on.
