Motorola confirmed that a Moto X refresh is coming at some point in the Summer this year, but official details surrounding the currently unannounced phone are a little thin.. to say the least. As for leaks and rumours, we have plenty. Set to be called the Moto X+1 and come with a fancy faux-leather back plate, the Moto X+1 is set to be a much improved Moto X, but how much?
According to stats that appeared on GFXBench over the weekend, a mysterious device from Motorola currently titled the Moto X XT912A, or the Moto X+1, could be a real improvement over its predecessor. According to the benchmark the device is set to come with a large 5.2-inch 1080p HD screen, it’ll be running a Snapdragon 800 processor with 1.7GB of memory (most likely 2GB on paper) and 24GB of internal storage (again, probably 32GB on paper).
The device is also set to run Android 4.4.3 KitKat, which according to VP of Software over at Motorola, Punit Soni, will remain as close to Stock Android as that on the Moto X and Moto G.
As for camera, the Moto X+1 is set to outshine the Moto X in that department too with a 12-megapixel main camera with auto-focus, HDR, touch focus, and face detection. For those of you who take more selfies than a police mugshot camera, the benchmark indicates that the Moto X+1 could have a 2-megapixel front camera with HD video capabilities.
Until Motorola confirm the news or actually announce the existence of the Moto X+1, it’s best to take these stats with a pinch of salt, though they don’t at all seem unlikely.
