Mystery box shows Motorola device headed for Verizon (X+1?)

Mystery box shows Motorola device headed for Verizon (X+1?)
We know that the Motorola Moto X+1 is coming, and we are expecting/hoping that it will be landing relatively soon. Those hopes have been a bit troubled recently, because we haven't been seeing as many of the usual leaks surrounding a major release like this, but a new mystery box may hold the key.

The leak doesn't really contain all that much, except for a box labeled with Motorola Mobility model XT1096. The box also mentions that it contains a "pre-commercial unit owned by Verizon Wireless". Assuming the box isn't a fake, this would mean that someone out there has their hands on a Verizon model Moto X+1. The original Moto X carried model numbers ranging from XT1049 (Republic Wireless) to XT1060 (Verizon), so a model number of XT1096 would be somewhere in the range you might expect from the Moto X follow-up. 

With luck, we'll be getting real info soon enough, so stay tuned. And, if any of you know anything, be sure to hit us up on the tip line.

Couldn’t this also be one of the new Verizon Droid line phones? Last year Verizon did hold a press conference for the Droid line a week before the Motorola's announcement of the Moto X.

Nah man, the box is white, like the original Moto X box. The Droid boxes are always a dark gray with digital patterns on them.

I'm pretty sure this is a generic box, and not an official retail one, so it could be a Droid model.
