New Motorola Moto X+1 (codename Victara) to be sold by all four major US carriers
As you may have heard, Motorola is preparing a successor to its Moto X from last year, one that should be called Moto X+1. According to @evleaks, the upcoming handset is codenamed Victara, and will be sold by all four major mobile carriers in the US: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. A Moto X+1 for AT&T was already mentioned at Motorola’s website earlier this month (although the name’s been deleted since then).

Like the original Moto X, the new X+1 is expected to come with lots of backplate options, including some made out of wood, and leather.

Last week, Motorola announced its first new smartphone of 2014: the Moto E, which is an affordable handset that costs only $129. We are expecting the Moto X+1 to be more expensive, as this is supposed to be Motorola’s next-gen flagship. Unfortunately, details about its features are completely missing at this point. We also don’t know if the new handset will have a design similar to that of the Moto X (but we’re guessing that a drastic change in looks won’t happen anyway).

Motorola Mobility is in the process of being acquired by Lenovo, which agreed to buy the company from Google for almost $3 billion. But this shouldn’t change Motorola’s software strategy, so its upcoming smartphones will still offer near-stock Android.

The new Moto X+1 should be announced in the second half of the year.
