Moto X+1 claimed again to be Motorola's first phone with a 1080p display, alleged pictures leak

Moto X+1 claimed again to be Motorola's first phone with a 1080p display, alleged pictures leak
We've been hearing about an alleged Motorola Moto X+1 flagship upgrade for a while now, and the phone was even referenced on the company's own website several times. The other day a resident leakster posted a blurry image of what is supposed to be the Moto X+1 riding on the subway, which you can see in the slideshow below, and today we have one more eventual picture of the handset, courtesy of a Baidu user. It purportedly depicts the front of the flagship, which seems rather different than the one of the Moto X.

The exact specs of the handset are still shrouded in mystery, though, and so far we've only heard speculated that it is codenamed Victara, has no less than 25 backplate options, and will be sold by all four major mobile carriers in the US. This latest leak from China comes with two very important spec sheet entrants confirmation, though, and these are screen size and resolution. The Moto X+1 is expected to sport a 5.2" 1080x1920 pixels display, claims the source, which would make it the first Motorola handset with a 1080p screen. The Moto X sports a 4.7" HD panel only, so the X+1 is shaping up to be a significant upgrade, as we are also expecting a bump in processing power and battery capacity, to accommodate for the higher display resolution. 

In fact, a Motorola XT912A model already leaked once in the GXBench database, sporting this exact same screen size and resolution, as you can see from the screenshot below. A Snapdragon 800 processor was also listed, alongside with a higher resolution camera than what we currently have on the Moto X. The Moto X+1 is expected to be released in the second half of the year, which is not that far away, now that the month of May is almost over.

I'm kind of disappoint the top and bottom bezels aren't smaller Especially if its 5.2", then it would quite a lot bigger, like all the other 2014 flagships But yea the side bezels are great

Why do the specs say 1.7gb of ram? The 12mp camera means it can do 4k video (well if it allows it). It looks like they removed the barometer (handy altimeter gone now, well you can use GPS instead). I hope they keep the water resistance. I wish Motorola would follow the trend of LG and Samsung with their flagships and offer a removable battery. If not that at least follow the recent trend of all the flagships using micro SD cards.

Its still designed by Motorola. The company has not changed over yet. Besides most of the worlds components and parts come from there in the first place.

Because specs mean everything when it comes to how well the phone works, right? /sarcasm

Do all these companies really believe if they release gold phones they'll be a big hit like the iPhone? There was data released a month or so ago showing for every black iPhone, there are 4 gold. Is this what companies are trying to achieve? High sales, which they believe will come from gold color options, or just offering what a lot of people like?

Or maybe Motorola's next phone will have a gold option because HOLY FU CKING SH IT, THE PRECEDING PHONE MODEL HAD A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT COLOR OPTIONS. Jesus, not everything revolves around Apple. Motorola's doing very well by doing many things the exact opposite way Apple does them.

Yeah....I'm fed up apple fans thinking that everyone copies apple....while apple itself copies from others... I'm samsung fan....but I'm more excited about X+1...if they add micro sd support I'm in...

Woah man calm down I didnt mean for my comment to make you so mad bro lmfaoooooo. Yes, previous color palat, which did not include gold haha. Use your head. Everyone is on the gold bandwagon now because of Apple. You should consider common sense some time, and while youre at it, get a therapist. I think you have an anger issue.

No matter how others follow their bandwagon, Smarter people will still not buy apple because of their Overpriceness. So, I and other smarter people don't give even a single piece of acceptance with your statement.

Sauce, you're a relatively new idiot on this site, so I understand that you don't know me. So let me break it down like a fraction for you: I will type passionate things like the above without actually being upset. I just like to drive points home for the learning impaired. That means you. You're right. They didn't do gold last time. They did do a bunch of other colors though, nice colors. So like any good capitalist company, they're expanding their options, including an option that a competitor offers. It doesn't mean that they're relying on the gold color to increase sales. Motorola just needs to do more things right with the Moto Algebra that they didn't do last time with the X (availability, pricing, advertising) and they will do a lot better. The gold color won't be the be all to end all, and Motorola doesn't think it will. This is, of course, assuming a gold color will actually be available. As pointed out below, it could just be a crappy photo-none of the pictures in the set above are particularly well done.

Lost you at "so I understand that you don't know me." Could care less for what you have to say or who you are lmao. NEXT.

"Could care less for what you have to say" Thank you for summing up your opinion of everyone who disagrees with you.

To you if Apple is on the wrong, to you their still right. Motorola was selling gold color phones way before Apple in the 90s and 2000+ . No Apple is not a trend setter, carrying, having and owning a Apple product is the latest fashion and to look cool.

Snapdragon 800?!?!?! Better be affordable. I am looking forward to this phone since last year.

Looks like they're not fixing what isn't broken. Hopefully they keep the pricing model the same as what they settled on eventually for the Moto X, and don't do stupid exclusivity deals. If Motorola plays this right the Moto Algebra will do a lot better in sales than the original.

Making it 5.2 inches large is "fixing what isn't broken."

I don't know, the extra half inch might be nice. Especially since a portion of that is almost always taken up by the on screen buttons, which in reality does shorten it more to a 4.8 inch screen.
