This just in, the successor to Motorola’s Moto X has been spotted on GFXBench and we now have some idea about the specifications of the phone. Remember how the Moto X was criticised for having substandard specs? Well this time, things are a bit different. As compared to its little brother, the Moto X+1 comes with flagship standard specifications. As for the release date, we still have no idea but it can be said that Motorola will officially reveal the phone on 4th September, later this year alongside Moto 360 and Moto G2.
So, let’s talk about the specifications? There is a 5.2 inches of screen with full HD resolution. The Motorola X+1 will be coming with a quad core Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.45 gigahertz (there’s a slight mistake in the GFXBench as it is reporting a Snapdragon 800 instead of 801. It’s clearly the latter because of the higher clock speed), 2 gigs of RAM, Adreno 330 GPU, 16 gigs of internal storage (GFXBench is displaying 10 gigs which is basically what you will be getting from 16) there’s a 12 mega pixel camera on the back that is capable of taking videos at 4k resolution, a 2 mega pixel on the front capable of FHD videos.
There’s no mention of a micro SD card slot but considering how Motorola skipped it with budget friendly Moto G as well Moto X… we just might see it in the Motorola X+1. As for the OS, the Moto X+1 will be running on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. We hope that Motorola keeps it as stock as possible just like the previous devices. Stay tuned as we will keep you posted about the Moto X+1 and all the news surrounding this somewhat exciting phone.
