Motorola is probably going to be pretty angry right about now as it seems its upcoming Moto X+1 has been totally revealed over the last two days. The American brand is due to launch the flagship alongside the Moto G 2 and the Moto 360 smart watch in Chicago on September 4th. However, the X+1 has been laid bare, with the device showing up in a high quality press image yesterday, while today some of its specs have been leaked.Brazilian retailer Livaria Logos Bookstore leaked the specs for the Moto X+1, several of its variants, a new thus far unheard of handset and just to top it off the specs from the new Moto G too. Not bad for a day's work of disrupting Motorola's big surprise, but then again this retailer has previous Moto leaking history as it let slip the Moto E a few days before its launch earlier this year. It seems that the Moto X+1 will arrive as the solid but unspectacular flagship we have thought it would be, at least from a spec perspective. It features a 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 with 2GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, a 13 megapixel rear camera, 16GB of on board storage, and Android 4.4.4. The X+1 is listed at 1299 Brazilian Real, or $570, although we expect that price will change according to region. Interestingly, the retailer also ousted a few variants of the Moto X+1, including the stunning looking bamboo version we looked at yesterday, and a leather one. Livaria was not really content with giving the game away regarding Motorola's flagship, so the company also detailed the specs of the budget Moto G 2. The specs state a larger 5-inch HD screen which we hope is 1080p and not 720p, a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core, an 8 megapixel rear snapper, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and again Android 4.4.4.The budget Moto G 2 is also landing alongside the Moto X+1 in Chicago next month, but there also seems to be another new Moto device that we have not seen before. The website also has a sales listing for a Moto Titan, which by name alone suggests it is a phablet. Could this just be a large screen Moto X+1? We will have to wait and see, but it seems Motorola is still holding some secrets. source: Phandroid
