Motorola Moto X

We all love a good rumor from time to time, and Twitter leaker @evleaks has revealed a tantalizing piece of possible branding today. As shown in the leaked image after the break, we're looking at the 'Motorola Moto X+1'. Nothing else has been published besides from the codename, which (as always) could change prior to a product announcement, but there's a chance we could be looking at a Moto X successor. Then again, we have no idea what this device could be.

Motorola Moto X + 1 Tweet

Motorola itself has hinted at a successor to the Moto X coming this summer. And while @evleaks has a solid track record, we do recommend some degree of caution, as there's not much context here — it could refer to a smartphone, tablet or something else entirely. We'll have to wait and see what Motorola has in store for consumers with "Moto X+1." In the meantime, check out our our six-month look-back feature for some Moto X nostalgia.

Caution? Oh come on!
it is a sure thing, this guy gets the info straight from the manufacturers' PR department.

"All new HTC One" anyone? It isn't anything real, until it's real.

To be fair, the signage at the Verizon stores call it The All New HTC One (M8)

Seafox420 says:

Wasn't the All New HTC One called the "HTC One Up" for awhile?

Grahaman27 says:

Exactly. Or that nexus 10 leak. I personally think evleaks has lost its edge.

Besides, Motorola gave a timeframe for the moto x sequal, late summer.

via moto x.

Not everything always pans out as leaked. The new Nexus 10 not coming out does not equal that the guy isn't credible or that he doesn't have credible sources.

gautampw says:

Well at least we know moto x successor isn't too far

Jdane07 says:

Maybe it is a another promotional offer? Like buy a Moto X, get one free? Moto X +1?

Posted via Android Central App

That's what I was thinking also.

gautampw says:

OMG no one has done such thing before..

nimer55 says:

Rogers (Canadian cellphone carrier) recently discontinued the Moto X, could be a sign that the successor is coming sooner rather than later.

ChillFactorz says:

My thoughts are leaning towards the Moto 360 watch. Like when you bring a date to a party, a +1.

How about a GPE Moto X??

bhatech says:

Hmm.. Good guess. Makes sense.

ddot196 says:

Exciting. I'm really curious to see what the new moto x will bring. Mine has been great ever since I got it. Durable and receives updates faster than any phone I've ever owned. No complaints here. At this point I think anything could impress me more than the s5 or HTC one.

Hopefully they'll ditch the whole personalisation BS and launch globally.

Asian markets might get it soon because lenovo..

martinkem says:

Who comes up these names? Like the Moto X2 is a terrible name

mtvictor says:

Just what i was thinking
It can't be X2 or X+1
Those would be an horrible name
Even thought I don't want one with a different letter than the X.

Gator352 says:

What about Moto Xtreme? That would sound cool.

martinkem says:

nah, Xtreme would point to another type of device. something waterproof and dustproof

gautampw says:

Exactly rugged version of flagship like what Samsung does

Green_Laser says:

How about :
Moto X²

think X to the 2nd power
Posted via Android Central App

martinkem says:

i likr X square, but we know that people would see it as X2 and call it X two

Only the math-challenged...OK, yeah, that'd be lots of people.

droidhead_1 says:

The post shows MotoX+1 & Moto+X1.
Not sure what to make of him displaying both in the tweet..

Posted via Android Central App

Kolten Nay says:

That's why it'll be the moto xx

Posted via Android Central App

martinkem says:

That's a bigger fail, that name sounds odd when pronounced. People would just call it the X2.

mtmerrick says:

There's already been a Moto X2. It was terrible, I owned one.

*Droid x2. Verizon droids are completely different

-Slim Nexus 10-

Shawn Magm says:

delete post.

sequoia462 says:

Really hoping it keeps its compact size and 4.7' screen

kakos26 says:

I'd like 5". Feel like that's the sweet spot, yet again that's subjective! 4.7-5 is fine with me.

Posted via Moto X (VZ)

Jamaar White says:

No 5.

npco543 says:

There's enough 5 and 5+ inch phones. Keeping a single high-end phone in the 4-4.7 range isn't a bad idea.

I've gotten used to a 5 inch screen too, but I recently compared my Nexus 5 to my old Incredible 2 and holy hell the Nexus is freakishly large in comparison. I wouldn't mind something a little smaller.

sequoia462 says:

If they make it 5 and don't release a mini with the same specs, then they've lost me.

gautampw says:

5 will be great, just like n5

nevetsca says:

Might be Moto X plus Moto 360 combo.

thegrants82 says:

Agreed.

Posted via Android Central App

Man what has happened to naming schemes. Stop putting 1 2 on phone names. Btw i'm excited for this. Keep em coming them moto.

Cubfan says:

I am ready for this one. Getting the wood out of the gate this time.

udazavlanje says:

"+1" by some logic should be a device accompanying Moto X - not succeeding, but what do you know w these people nowadays.

Zig261 says:

With the latest specs and camera please Moto. And make it cheap like you did the current X recently.

Posted via Android Central App

Premium1 says:

Better camera please. That was the sole thing holding me back last year. Keep around same small footprint, and beef up internals a little

idontball says:

Please Google take motorola mobility back:(

Zig261 says:

Moto better off without them. They focused on user experience in a way Google never cared enough to offer for the past 5 years

xlDeMoNiClx says:

Clearly you haven't used anything made by Google in the last 5 years.

tdizzel says:

Has Google actually made anything in the last 5 years?

skiman10 says:

The Pixel was made by Google. It's a sweet device.

chase1963 says:

My first thought is a Moto 360 debuet. Seems a hair early for it though.

Ry says:

+1? Either the next Moto X or a Moto X + 360.

Lol

Ugh O. We have moto's naming experts at it again. Look out for the Moto x+ Maxx hd rad ultra edition 4glte droid

Saturn1217 says:

Motorola is perhaps my only hope for having an android phone to buy in two years that isn't the size of a phablet. So please keep making nice compact phones motorola!

Grahaman27 says:

Same. I have thought that without Motorola I don't know what I would do.

via moto x.

blackbyrd says:

The moto x is my mostest favoritest phone ever. This is the only phone I've ever owned where I haven't really been concerned with what's new nor what's on the horizon. Love it, absolutely!

Posted via Android Central best phone available: moto x

xlDeMoNiClx says:

Every now and then? Might wanna check your sources there author, there are leaks every damn day. They've lost all meaning these days.

Posted via Android Central App

gautampw says:

He is right most of the times..

Posted via Android Central App

Cubfan says:

Who cares about the name? I only care if the phone is good. Better camera and processor, better battery life, and keep the same size (maybe a touch of improvement on the screen) and I'm totally sold. Still need the active notifications and the touchless control, but they wouldn't leave that out since it's the moto trademark now.

paulw3 says:

I hope they do a Moto G to the Moto X2 or whatever it's called. Make it a world wide release.

NeatOman says:

I would be happy to have got the Motorola X if it came with a 1080p Super AMOLED+ (full RGB), instead i got the Nexus 5 and switched the runtime to ART to fix the battery issue.

In all these comments, i see no one correlating Google+ and moto x+1. You like something on G+? You give it a +1. (Yes, this is obvious). I highly doubt that is the name because then they would work themselves into a corner. Next summer, the +2? I do not doubt the credibility of the leak. I do think moto in the last couple of years (since leaks of the "terminator" (targa), "jet" (maxx hd) and bullet (razr m) i think they know pretty well how to feed and fuel intetest (on forums exactly like these) without direct leaks to actual information. Surely, we wouldn't be as interested if we *knew* moto was doing this directly. Funny thing is, the names are rarely right at their first uttering. Does that mean i am right? Not by any means. Just suggesting another possibility.;)
