Now that we know that the Moto X+1 will arrive during Motorola's press event in Chicago on September 4th, we can turn our attention to what the device will look like and how it will perform. A new leak today has the former covered as it shows the front panel of the X+1 and reveals that Motorola has updated the design.The Moto X+1 is a replacement for the Moto X flagship that is now over a year old and unlike the older model it is said to keep up to date with the specs of current smartphone flagships. The device has caused a little confusion as benchmarks have showed it running either a Snapdragon 801 or an 805. However, thanks to this leak we can at least put a face to the name and now know what the Moto X+1 will look like. This front panel also helps to put the size of the handset into perspective. The original Moto X came with a modest 4.7-inch panel with 720p resolution, but the X+1 is looking to up that considerably. Unfortunately, it seems the device will miss out on getting a Quad HD screen (that is reserved for the Motorola Shamu), but will get a hike in size to 5.2-inches and will also get a resolution bump to 1080p Full HD. The Moto X+1 retains the rounded pebble look of the original Moto X, but it seems to have a few more design flourishes, such as a Moto E like strip. Of course, despite its almost bland looks, the Moto X was a design triumph that to the Moto Maker suite that let consumers completely individualize their handsets in the pre-purchase process. Moto Maker is almost certainly going to be retained for the Moto X+1 and will continue to be rolled out to more countries after recently finding its way to the UK and Germany. source: Talk Android
