After the tremendous success of the Moto G and Moto E, Motorola is planning to release a premium handset, likely to be a successor to the sleeper hit Moto X. Dubbed the Moto X+1, the forthcoming phone is rumored to arrive sometime in late August, as per the latest rumor.
Unfortunately, there are no confirmed details available because the company has yet to announce the handset. Now once again, some more info about the device comes in the form of a press shot, all thanks to a leak posted by serial Twitter leaker @evleaks.
As you can see from the image above, the alleged press shot of the Moto X+1 covered with a case on it. Notably, the phone protector ensures that you never get to determine what device you're looking. At the same time, there are certain things which make us hard to find the authenticity of the leaked press shot.
The image appears to be of the Motorola Moto E, instead of the upcoming Moto X+1. The lack of a front facing camera, plus missing LED Flash raises more questions about how genuine the press shot is. Of course, this could be a fake image, so we advise you to take this rumor with a pinch of salt.
The aging Moto X is already in a brink of extinction, so Motorola fans have been anxiously waiting for the next-generation device that could give tough competition to the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The Moto X+1 is said to arrive any time soon. On the specifications side, it will come with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, amongst others. The phone will run on Android 4.5 mobile OS.
When will the new Moto X+1 launch? And what features and specifications can we expect? Today, we bring you the latest speculation about the forthcoming Moto X+1. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!

Earlier this month, Punit Soni, VP, Product Management, Motorola Mobility, posted a screenshot of his phone.

He posted a screenshot from his phone to demonstrate the feature on Google+ and his followers realized that the resolution of the image was Full HD (1080p).
