New 1080p Motorola smartphone apparently confirmed by Punit Soni, could be the Moto X+1

It’s no secret that Motorola is getting ready to launch a successor to last year’s Moto X. The company initially confirmed this in February, but it didn’t provide other details ever since. However, it appears that Punit Soni, Moto’s VP of product management, is now hinting at a new handset that features a 1080p display.

In response to a software bug that’s been bothering some Motorola smartphone users, Punit Soni took to Google+ to say that the issue is being fixed with the Android 4.4.3 update. The message is accompanied by a screenshot from a smartphone with a display resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels (you can click on the image on the left for a full-size view). As some folks may already know, at the moment Motorola has no 1080p handsets, so what we have here is a brand new, unannounced device. Of course, Punit Soni didn’t confirm that this is an upcoming Moto smartphone. But he didn’t dismiss the idea, either. So we’re thinking that this is the next-gen Moto X - expected to be called Moto X+1.

It’s said that the screen of the Moto X+1 may be a 5.2-inch one, so a 1,080 x 1,920 pixel resolution means it would offer a 423 ppi density. While that’s not Quad HD quality, it’s still more than enough for a flagship smartphone. The new Motorola handset should be released in late summer (reportedly via all major US carriers), so it may be officially announced pretty soon. Are you waiting for it?
