Moto X+1 release rumored to be September 25th

Droid Life, Verizon is expecting the release of the Moto X+1 on September 25th, which you may notice is not "late summer" at all, but rather "very early fall". Of course, there is always the chance that the 360 would be released beforehand, or that Verizon is getting the X+1 later than other carriers. But, either way, it seems like we're going to have to wait quite a bit before seeing what Motorola's next flagship looks like.According to a source for
September is looking pretty packed right now. The latest rumors have the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 being released during the last two weeks of September. While rumors have said October, Apple usually tries to aim for a late September release for the iPhone as well. Motorola's Moto X didn't sell all that well with its August release last year, though that was mostly due to the AT&T exclusivity of Moto Maker, so it must be very confident to aim for late September with the X+1.

Ugh. That seems like a long time. I want one now! Waaaaaaaah! In all seriousness I'm looking forward to this phone and I think I'm getting rid of my Note 3 for it. Too bad it's after the new iPhone launch.

Moto ... please don't fail to sell this phone directly at T-mobile stores. The average shopper will not purchase a phone online outside of the carrier store. This phone should have a physical presence in the store so users can see; hold and play with it. T-mobile store reps should be able to sell you a customization code for use on moto maker site..

And that means nothing. Motorola's near-AOSP roms run ridiculously smooth compared to skinned Android. My friend who recently "upgraded" to a G3 with it's fancy SD 801 says his old Moto X was much faster.

Do you even know the difference between the 801 and the 805? The clock speed goes up to 2.45 GHz for the 801 and the 805 goes up to 2.7 GHz. The GPU is slightly faster on the 805 vs the 801. The memory support on the 805 is quad channel 800mhz vs the 801 dual channel 933mhz. Both support the latest storage stand eMMC v5.0. For the most part you won't even notice a difference.

Well the X was behind specs wise. I don't see how this would be any different.

One might think that someone such as yourself who loves the iPhone would understand the benefits of software that's optimized for the phone, but nope, you just keep running your mouth, enjoying the rattling sound of your empty head. The biggest phone release of the year is the Galaxy s5 thus far and they both have the 801 processor, as well as 2 GB of RAM. Saying that this phone will be behind in specs just show you are either absolutely ignorant, or that you're a troll that comes to the Motorola articles simply to pick fights. We all know that you've been told that the "under powered" Moto X from last year still performs just as well as current gen flagships, but apparently you know a lot more about a phone you've never actually used than all the people who own the phone that been arguing with you telling you it's awesome.

Way to go Motorola, release the X+1 right around the time the next iPhone is released along with the Galaxy Note 4. They didn't learn from their mistakes with the first Moto X. They should have released it around this time or wait until November if they want it to sell.

If they launch it now they'll hurt themselves when iPhone launches and the note 4. If they price it good, people might go for it instead of a note or an iPhone. Why do you think its larger than this gen iPhone but smaller than note...

I hope it keeps the "just right" size of the first one and just bumps the resolution and chipset and improve google now. The Moto X was flawless with an S4 I think the 800 or 801 is gonna make it even smoother I just hope it gets the fast updates that were promised with the moto x
