According to the earlier rumors, the Moto X+1 was pegged for a possible appearance at Google I/O. However given that the keynote has come and gone, safe to say that there was no Moto X+1 announced. However according to the folks at TK Tech News, they claim to have gotten their hands on a photo which allegedly shows off the Moto X+1 being held next to the Moto 360, as you can see in the image above.
Based on what we can see, it certainly seems to resemble the photo we saw yesterday, which for those who might have missed the news, featured a white backplate as well. Also we’re not sure if it’s just the angle, but the handset pictured in the photo certainly looks a lot thinner than the original Moto X.
Of course there’s no way of verifying the authenticity of this photo, so do take it with a grain of salt for now. Unfortunately since Google/Motorola did not make any announcements regarding the Moto X+1, there’s no telling if and when they will officially announce the handset. As it stands Motorola Mobility still belongs to Google until the sale to Lenovo has gone through, so we’re not sure if the Moto X+1 will launch as Google device or as a Lenovo handset.
However what we do know about the handset so far is that it will pack a Full HD display and will be slightly larger than its predecessor, and will come in a variety of customization options that might include the use of the leather material as one of the options, in addition to the wooden backplates.
