The Moto X which was released in August of last year is getting close to that time in a smarthphone’s life when it is replaced by a bigger and better model, and we’ve certainly heard a lot of rumours pertaining to the Moto X’s gig as flagship being up. This current leaked courtesy of an anonymous tipster allegedly is the final prototype of the soon to be released Moto X+1.
The multiple images which have been leaked show a very similar looking device to that of last year’s Moto X, with the wood back which was one of the main talking points about the original Moto X. There are some differences though, we know have an aluminium bezel running around the edge of the phone, following in the footsteps of the likes of HTC and soon to be Samsung. There’s now a 5.1 inch screen versus the 4.7 inch screen of the original Moto x and the capacative buttons have been removed confirming some of the reports we’ve already heard. There’s also a plastic Motorola logo on the back of the device unlike the logo which was ingrained into the wood last year, and also what looks like a dual LED flash and again like last year we have no micro SD slot, so no expandable memory.

The rest looks pretty similar to last year’s model. From the leak we can also ascertain that the screen will have a full HD 1080p resolution, a 2,900 MAh battery and a Snapdragon 800 processor backed up by 2GB of RAM.
As usual folks remember this is a rumour and should always be taken with a pinch of salt, we’ll be sure
