Moto X+1 with bumper case shown in latest leak

A new image of the much rumored Moto X+1 has popped up showing what appears to be the device sitting inside a case made for the phone. At this point, there's not a lot of information about the phone itself though the leak reveals the front and the rear of the device.

We'll have to wait for Motorola to officially announce the phone to learn more. However, based on the photo that was leaked, it appears that the home screen for the device looks a bit odd.

The Moto X+1 is believed to be the successor to the Moto X.

The fact that the notification shade and nav buttons aren't translucent on the Google launcher screams fake to me.

Johnny Blake says:

It looks identical to the GPE phone renders.

briankurtz79 says:

This is completely fake. There is no way they would put more bezel in a device that is going to have a bigger screen. This thing like like garbage

Like like?

Amir47 says:

Get over the bezel nonsense. iPhones have one of the biggest bezel % and it's the best selling year after year.
So bezels are clearly irrelevant

ErnstMach says:

Not if you ask all those people who are constantly complaining about the HTC One's

Kolten Nay says:

All of the people complaining about the ones are a minority compared to all the people that only buy Samsung or apple. Both have larger bezels.

I've never complained out the bezels on this phone!

I've been pointing out the ridiculous top/bottom iPhone bezels for years.

rebretz000 says:

The screen is off centered at the top also. It's a horrible render of the Moto E in a case.

Jaggrey says:

Where's the flash for the camera?

Circled around the lens

jayjay234 says:

Hahhaha yeah right lol

paging dr b says:

Can you imagine?! That would deserve a slow clap from the entire planet.

Fast forward to one year from now. Apple releases iFlash. *It's the first iFlash on any camera ever". Apple "We Invent stuff that other people invented".

jeddo45 says:

Haha! Way to go out on a limb!

mwara244 says:

I thought the same thing. The thin white strip around the lens would be a cool idea for an led flash.

dwd3885 says:

No flash. ..

That's one big ass camera sensor.

That was my first thought. Maybe a second UltraPixel device?

ErnstMach says:

I think the case is actually helping it, rather than hindering it to be frank

Posted via Android Central App

TurboFool says:

You think that based on what, exactly? Almost NONE of the phone is visible.

ErnstMach says:

I didn't realize that "almost none" encompassed the entire front of the device, and the camera

Posted via Android Central App

TurboFool says:

Considering a screen is a screen and doesn't differ in appearance in any way, shape or form from device to device, then this photo encompasses a rather SMALL portion of the bezels, JUST the lens of the camera, and a tiny circle at the bottom of the back. Yes, that's pretty much "almost none." No edges, corners, sides, seams, or basically the ENTIRE back of the phone. Almost every single element in which personality can exist is hidden in this photo. So yes, almost none is visible, and far too little with which to judge whether or not the phone is attractive.

Jonneh says:

Lol! I was laughing out loud reading this comment thread. Gotta side with turbo...judging the phone's looks from a cg render of it encompassed in a case???

Ry says:

No flash?

Front speakers?

jeffnucci says:

Looks like a Moto E in a case

Mac58 says:

+1. Exactly. I think this was a mis post by evleaks. Its clearly the same form factor as the moto E and has all of its unique bodily features.

Vicky Sofyan says:

yeah, that's absolutely moto e gpe

This is a pretty bad render.

1.- motorola devices come with transparent status and notification bar, even the razer HD (2012) had transparent nav bar.

Also, no front facing camera? And no flash?

But i think that hoever made this, made it so we know it will have front facing speakers and OIS (at least thats what i think from seeing the camera)

Grahaman27 says:

Yeah that it's odd... Bit those front facing speakers look tight

Posted via Android Central App

Furt says:

that top speaker grill isn't even centered.....

joaco_ip says:

That's a moto E.

Ry says:

Moto E doesn't have mics in those spots.

Grahaman27 says:

moto e+1?

moto e^(pi*i) - 1



Looks like a other non-leak from evleaks.
He's just getting lazy now, living off these sorts of terrible renders or Mr. Blurrycam shots.
If he wasn't such a nice guy I'd completely ignore anything with his name on it. (/s just in case anyone hasn't seen how he behaves online)

MarkSeven says:

Looks like the Moto E to me..

sequoia462 says:

I really hope this is a bad render because the bottom bezel looks really big compared to Moto X.

Hunter Petit says:

You should check out TK Tech's leak. I think its pretty legit. Not this.

m477 says:

LEGIT? He just wrapped a Moto X in cellophane. There is no proof that it is not a Moto X.

lakedubvt says:

haha TK Tech is the biggest troll in Android news right now

xpyroxcorex says:

Giant ass bottom bezel, no flash, screen dimensions look off to me. If that really is the new moto x then that's terrible..... If anyone truly thinks this looks good then... Bleh

honkey haze says:

lol at you guys for thinking that is the moto x. this is the moto x found here. by a nut case that spent 25k to get his hands on it.

sequoia462 says:

Hey thanks, this is the best we have so far. I'm really bummed about the 5' screen... I can't buy a phone that big.

Posted via Moto X

m477 says:

Nope, just a Moto X in cellophane. He faked all this just to become popular online.

ErnstMach says:

He's been right before, for example he extensively leaked the S5 Active

Posted via Android Central App

m477 says:

But this time he refuses to to size comparison, or even a non blurry close up of the "1080p" display. He even refuses to show screenshot of moto apps/settings, at 1080p.

That's a damn Moto E... C'mon Android Central.

intrepid359 says:

This is clearly NOT a flagship-class phone. It looks like a low-end phone like the Moto E or Moto G. The bezels and dimensions look all wrong, not to mention the camera.

NoYankees44 says:

This render is sketchy. I would hope they would not release something either that much bezel. I would buy the original x over it for that alone.

Seriously AC? That's all I have to say!

Emmh, that looks and feels (?) like a Moto E, guys. Maybe a Moto E GPE, but Moto E all the way.
No flash? Bezels to kill? Speaker grids at the front?
Yap, E.

krant min says:

Guys, look at top left portion on the 1st image. The image and the background don't align well. Its like a Photo shop copy paste.

I'd like to see this better scrutinized by AC staff before going up.

m477 says:

Images leaked by @evleaks are always true… But I don't know how to feel about this one… It could be a Moto G+1, a GPe variant of the Moto E… Or a Moto X-1

Shawheim says:

looks more like a Moto E+1

Shawheim says:

No FFC either

RaiderWill says:

Even Blind Mellow Jelly can see that Evanleaks was just having fun with this one.

JoeNM84 says:

Well doesn't this just prove that these writers don't even look at the stuff they are writing about? One less "Tech Writer" to read. Can't believe how many other sites are linking to this, too. Everyone jumps on the words without actually looking at the substance I guess.

deadpenguins says:

Yea, a device that looks 98% the same as the moto E (speaker grill placement, bezels, no flash, fat dimensions, ) is what the next moto x will look like. Cmon guys, your better than this.

Cubfan says:

No, they're not. :-)

hmmm says:

That was one of the few decent sized phones and I think that's partially why it seemed so popular. It's too bad they are joining the other phablets with their next phone.

muddy46 says:

Wow that is ugly! Can get so much more specs and beauty with the OnePlus One

Oh, let me just give my kindney to OnePlus so I can have the privilege of paying $350 for it.

So the takeaway is that more than one moto x+1 versions to be released. Got it.

That's a Moto E with a casing !!


That's one ugleh device

This message was brought to you by the numbers 0 and 1

At best it's a Moto E. In a case that's reminiscent of an Otterbox or something like that. There isn't a flash in the device. At all. (Unless somehow the case blocked it, which would be absurd but not completely impossible.)

P.S.: The launcher is bound to look like that. I reckon it was the Android 4.3 (AOSP) launcher. I had it in my Nexus 7 2012 & Optimus G, and the black bars do show up - they don't support transparency or something.
