More details about the Moto X+1 leak on Motorola's website, alongside a mysterious Moto G Cinema version
Motorola keeps leaking the upcoming Moto X+1 on its website, and this time we get a confirmation for its rumored 25 backplate options straight from the source. Just as speculated, the listed versions include cold hues, such as Navy, Turquoise, Olive, Smoke, Royal Blue, Dark Teal, Slate, warm ones like Red, Orange, Lemon Lime, Violet, Crimson, Purple, Dark Teal, Raspberry, Cabernet, and the neutral Purple, Smoke, Black, Slate, and Chalk. Besides the plastic stuff, there will be leather ones in Black, Grey, Red, Blue, and wooden backplates reminiscing Teak, Rosewood, Bamboo, and Ebony.

Quite the roster here, while the accent colors for the power/lock key and the like, will remain in the current 10 options: Blue, Silver, Yellow, Red, Ultraviolet, Black, Orange, Gold, Green and Purple. There will be 16 GB and 32 GB options, while later on there will evidently be one with the whopping 64 GB of internal storage. As for price and release date, these are still up in the air, but shouldn't be long behind.

Meanwhile, other upcoming Motorola handsets were revealed when poking around its website, codenamed the Moto 4G/4G Global, and Moto 3G 4 GB, priced $189 and $179, respectively. It's not clear yet what these might signify, but remember we are waiting for a 4G LTE version of the Moto G from Motorola, so that might be it. 

Unfortunately, we have no idea what the Moto G Cinema version could be, yet that's precisely what was dug out from Motorola's website, as discovered by the perennial tipster @evleaks. Any guesses what might Motorola be hinting at with the Cinema moniker used to describe a mysterious new Moto G variant?

I think the moto cinema version is really just a FHD display. Which is really nice and needed. If moto cinema comes with a FHD display quad core SD 805 with 2-3gb of ram, 64gb of storage, 8mp front facing camera that can do retina password login, with a 12-13mp rear camera, and water resistant again. Then Motorola can take my money.

I wonder if moto cinema has anything to do with a pico projector. That would be cool as well. Like a Galaxy Beam, only this would be a Moto Beam. ;-)

Lol, I love it when people say "when X company makes a phone with dream specs, then they can take my money."

Moto G 4 GB version? It better have microSD slot unlike the 8 GB and 16 GB versions, else Motorola should be prepared to getting laughed at.

yeah, i don't think so. when i take a look at how most people in my family use their phones (they're as far from being power-users as one can be) i really get why phones with those storage sizes are still produced. because they work, and they're enough for most people, despite what you and me might think about it.

Ugh. I'm going to be pissed once there's a LTE version of the Moto G out and about. Especially if it's only $10 more than the unlocked GSM version... I'll end up hating my 16 GB US Bands Moto G....... :-(

There's probably some BS exclusivity deal with Verizon over Kevlar.

The Atrix HD had Kevlar, and that was for AT&T

Yeah, but note that it was a poor cousin to the RAZR line, and never got a direct successor. I don't know It could be that Kevlar is just too expensive for what Motorola has in mind with the Moto X.

I better bloody be available in Australia and other countries. Could do well here in Australia considering that it's one of apple's few high market share countries.

I don't like Android at all, but I've gotta disagree on this one buddy. The Moto G offers great specs at a ridiculously low price. It also has the latest version of Android. In fact, I'm getting my sister a Moto G soon. I'd like to see how the phone works.

Hey, lay off him on this one. He's saying he admires the Moto G and is getting it for his sister. That means a lot coming from a WP fan.

Stupid Google or Motorola having these 2 day sales and I never get the news until 5 days later! I would glad buy one at the sale price if I could get the news for the sale on time.
