The above image is not of the Moto X+1, but if you liked the design of the original Moto X, then it sounds like you’re going to have a lot to like about the Moto X+1. Over the weekend, the resourceful TK Tech News blog managed to get their hands on a leaked image as well as some more info on the Moto X+1, directly from a source at Motorola. We’re not sure how happy the folks in Chicago are about this, but we’re sure there are a lot of you out there waiting to get your hands on the next Moto X, especially those that missed out the first time round, and find it too late to pull the trigger.

While the image that TK Tech News got their hands on isn’t of the best quality, more info on the specs is always nice to have. According to their source, the Moto X+1 is to feature a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display and 2GB of RAM, with no word on which CPU Motorola is to settle on. Apparently, two different camera configurations are being considered, but the word is that this Moto X will take much better photos. On the design front, it looks like we’re in for more of what we saw last year, with a thinner body that’s a little longer to accommodate the 5-inch display. Interestingly, it’s said that the Moto X+1 is to follow design cues from the Droid Ultra as well.

A late August to September launch is on the cards, which would put Motorola in Apple’s firing line as well as other Android OEMs that have something special up their sleeves for a Holiday launch. Hopefully, Motorola doesn’t lose what made the original Moto X such an appealing device, and they make the right upgrades to keep their overall experience in line with others. Are you looking forward to a new Moto X?
