Motorola Moto X+1 shown in a 30-second video along with its funky Motorola boot animation
Following the critical success of the Motorola Moto X, it would appear that the US-based company (ownership of which traded hands from Google to Lenovo recently) is readying a sequel, and so far we know the device simply as the Moto X+1.

Not much has been unearthed about this reportedly upcoming Motorola flagship, but we have a feeling things are about to change. Courtesy of TK Tech News, a 30-odd second video of the alleged Moto X+1 is now a reality, and we have our first more convincing glimpse at the device. We don't get to see much beyond its funky Motorola boot animation, which is as creative as was the one on the original Moto X

In case you're wondering, the video is of poor quality (and has those annoying stickers all around) in order to protect the identity of the device, which, according to the source, can be used to pinpoint the exact leaker. Thankfully, this is apparently only the first out of five upcoming Moto X+1 video leaks, so we'll keep a watchful eye out.

In related news, apparently TK Tech News managed to get their hands onto the X+1 after offering a whopping, $25,000 bounty to anyone who comes up with the device. As it turns out, at least according to the publication itself, 25 grand were enough to salivate a Motorola employee, who gave up the device. Whether such a massive amount of cash really did change hands is impossible to confirm, but it does seem like we may have another leaker in town, intent on building a strong track record. Stay tuned.

You care about it? You must be getting a slice of profit per phone your fav. company sells, right?

16. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yeah every phone that sells I make a 15% cut.

Well fine then, I'm a fool and I really thought you were a real Superman villain replying to me. Infact i thought Tim cook himself cooked you to troll and help him sell more iphones, and i was so dumb that I thought you impressed tim so he gave you a slice of profit.. -_-

Yes. The phone got overwhelmingly positive reviews from practically every tech publication which reviewed it.

15. Mxyzptlk unregistered

And yet the sales were lukewarm.

Nobody's arguing against that, though the phone gets pretty good ratings from people who actually bought it.

Now those are too kind words for a moron, Sir.

"who actually bought it." Good thing I did buy it. You can stop assuming now.

I know you bought it. I said "who actually bought it" because I was acknowledging that it didn't sell that well, but the relative few who bought the phone usually love it. Anyway, the point is that bringing up the phone's sales record does not in any way reflect its quality as a device nor does it serve as proof that the phone WASN'T a critical success, because there's a plethora of reviews to prove it was.

35. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Seemed like you were saying something else. Reviews mean nothing if no one buys the phone which is why the assembly plant in Texas is shutting down.

And yet no one cares about your opinion, iSalesman. Maybe we will hire you here at Moto, if you wish though. :-)

I hope to god you didn't honestly believe that comment about me making a percentage off of phones sold.

They payed 25 grand for it and they give us this. At least tell us the specs cruel bastards.

Slim Bezels and plastic construction.... Hope it has the same/better build quality and ergonomics as its predecessor Also the Snapdragon 805...

I'd still be fine with the S801 combined with a sizable increase in battery capacity. Hopefully they improve the display quality (similar to that of the Galaxy S5 or Lumia Icon) and camera lens/ sensor as well.

It was written "a Google company". This means the prototype or a perfectly working phone was made long before.

9. peace247 unregistered

A Google company refers to android... I think..

13. nomancool unregistered

no . i think its probably very old prototype , or running older firmware .. created before the lenovo-moto deal
