Moto X+1 for AT&T mentioned on Motorola's website, Verizon and Sprint variants might also be in the making

Motorola is once again mentioning the unannounced Moto X+1 on its official US website. It first did it at the beginning of this month, but deleted the Moto X+1 reference shortly after that. Well, the name popped up again today, and this time Motorola mentions a “Moto X+1 for AT&T” - as you can see in the image above.

The device that appears on the right is not the new Moto X+1, but the older Moto X, and it’s probably there as a placeholder and nothing more. The $400 price is most likely a placeholder, too. According to Droid-life, there are also references to a Moto X+1 for both Sprint and Verizon. So the new handset might be released via the three largest US carriers at some point - just like the Moto X.

Not long ago, we heard that Motorola would offer no less than 25 backplate options for the Moto X+1, including leather and wood models. While nothing is truly confirmed at the moment, it’s pretty clear that Motorola can barely wait to officially unveil the Moto X+1. Still, it looks like the company will announce a Moto E first, during an event that’s going to take place on May 13

We’re certainly looking forward to seeing what Motorola has in store for us this year. Are you?

The moto x is a great device. The only thing I find people are really stuck on is the dual core 1.7ghz S4 pro CPU. However they forget the GPU happens to be the exact same GPU found in the Galaxy S4, and HTC one. No one ever complains about apps or games on the moto x. I even love the amoled display on the moto x.

The Moto X is the Google data stealing wolf wrapped in sh33p's clothing, i.e. customized colors and back plates and "fun". I would expect "X+1" to be more of the same.

The moto x was ground breaking for the stuff that it delivered before anyone else. Like touch less controls, active notifications, moto assist, moto skip (auto login), spotlight stories, you can customize your own moto x colors and types of materials, label, and more.

True, there were some novel aspects of the phone. Let's not forget that Moto X also delivered special chips for "always on, always listening". Some people like this, others don't.

You don't have to use that feature. You have the option of turning it on/off easily enough. Considering its still the only phone that you could be in any app and the phone could be on or off, and you can use you voice to perform what ever you want. I love that feature. If you don't then don't buy it. But you already hate anything Android. I can see that from your posts.

Very excited for the release of this phone. The Moto X has been the best device I have ever used as a daily driver. If the GS5 ends up having a Google Play Edition, than I may end up having a difficult choice to make.

If it works on AT&T, shouldn't it also be compatible with the T-Mobile network?

Usually the reverse is true as T-Mobile has more bands than ATT. It does depend on where you are and to what extent T-Mobile has refarmed their 1700Mhz towers to 1900Mhz.
