This is what the Moto X+1 will look like (and maybe the release date?)

This is what the Moto X+1 will look like (and maybe the release date?)

If you have been following mobile news with any regularity over the past couple years, you will have come to know the name Evleaks, which time-after-time brought us reliable information; but, more often, Evleaks became synonymous with getting press renders of devices that hadn't been announced yet. Evleaks retired recently, but he has gotten us all a "retirement gift" in the form of renders for the Moto X+1.

These are the best images of the Moto X+1 that we have seen, and there are a few things to note. First of all, the speaker at the top is slightly wider
This is what the Moto X+1 will look like (and maybe the release date?)
than the one on the bottom, but it still looks like we're getting stereo speakers on the front of the X+1. The next item to note is the camera on the rear, or rather the odd setup of the camera. Usually, there would be a blatant flash next to the camera lens, but instead there is a ring around the lens. Our source says the small light spots in the image are actually two small flashes on either side of the lens.

The last things to note about the hardware are with the power and volume buttons, which have been moved down the side of the phone body compared to the Moto X, possibly to make them easier to reach on the larger chassis; and, the Motorola icon on the back which looks to be its own item, meaning the wooden back will finally have a proper divot. 

This is what the Moto X+1 will look like (and maybe the release date?)
As far as the software, there normally wouldn't be much to say, since Motorola runs close to stock Android, but it the red messaging icon in launcher bar is a bit strange. That is the Verizon Messages app logo, which would mean some bloat is creeping into Motorola devices. We'll have to just wait and see. Motorola will be announcing the X+1 and other devices on September 4th. The date on the renders is September 17th, our source says that is the planned Verizon release date, but the date could be moved up.

Look at the white breaks around the edges. This thing is definitely metal. Interesting.

Why? 801 is a fantastic processor. And Motorola is one of the best OEMs at optimization. I'd honestly be okay with a snapdragon 800. Nexus 5 is crazy smooth with it.

Wherever Motorola decides to put it at.

Try an angry management class.
Also, that's obviously the flash. Rumors said it before. There is nowhere else for it to go and Motorola already has patents for a ring flash around a camera lens. Seems pretty straightforward.

It shouldn't be considering how Motorola also has a Droid phone coming up along with the Moto S... unless it turns out that the Moto X+1 and Moto S are one in the same (which it doesn't sound like it).

The Algebra does look somewhat wider than the X, but not too much. The bezels on the top and bottom look about the same as before, which is awesome. Overall I approve and can't wait to see this phone in action.

64. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4056; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


I think that's just an effect of the render. If you look at a previous leak of the actual phone, it looks narrower. Sometimes renders just get warped like that. Like the image of the Verizon One M8 on their website has the bottom speaker on the edge of the bezel rather than centered in it. I assume it's the same situation.

Why would Motorola make the side bezels larger than they were on the Moto X? This phone is pretty ugly IMO...

posted on 21 Aug 2014, 22:17

37. VZWuser76 (Posts: 1550; Member since: 04 Mar 2010)


I was reading an article on another site that had a side by side view of the X and the X+1. Looking at the renders, it looks like the sides of the frame on the X are beveled, so looking at the corner from the bottom of the phone it would appear to be a somewhat rounded edge. On the X+1, the face appears to meet the sides at a right angle, so looking at the corner again from the bottom of the phone it would appear to be more of a squared off edge.

So while the X may appear to have smaller bezels, it may be an optical illusion due to the beveled edges.

Now that's one beautiful device. I like how the put the flash around the ring. the only thing it looks ugly is because of the VERIZON LOGO. please remove any logos from front of back of thephone

The black one is a solid 6.5/10 in the looks department, but the white/bamboo one is HIDEOUS.
Bet it'll be a great phone though.

I'd give the black a 5 on the 7 scale. White gets a 3.

And this is not fanboyism. Until I am proven wrong I'll keep saying it. We still have 2 more weeks till these moto/HTC/lg phones are released. Then I'll make a true decision. But until then.....HTC NEXUS ONE!!!!!!!!....................ONE!!!!!

Bingo. But then again, he's probably looking for any way he can crow that Motorola's not doing a Nexus. In this case, if Motorola doesn't release the Nexus in September (which is when no Nexus has ever been released) he'll act like he can say "see? No Moto Nexus! Told you guys! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE! HTC NEXUS ONE!
