Motorola’s Software guru, Punit Soni, posted a screenshot today basically showing us that you can decide to turn off the carrier name in the status bar in the Android 4.4.3 update. However, one thing I did not notice when that was posted, was that the screenshot is a 1920×1080 resolution display. So that means he’s not using the Moto E, Moto G, Moto X, or any of the DROID devices. Since those are all 720p or lower. We don’t know much more about the screenshot since the EXIF data doesn’t really tell us what device it comes from, just the resolution. So let’s speculate.

We know that Motorola is just about done with the next generation Moto X, and that it was developed under Google’s ownership again, so you won’t see any Lenovo input with this one. Especially since the deal still hasn’t gone through just yet. The Moto X+1 we believe is going to have a 1080p display, likely a Snapdragon 800-series processor, and 2GB of RAM. We’re also looking at a larger display, around 5.2-inches. So it should be about the same size as the LG G2 since Motorola likes to get the bezels really small.
This probably wasn’t on purpose from Punit, but it’s still fun to speculate about new Motorola devices and to see that there is a 1080p display. We don’t expect the Moto X+1 to be out or announced until later on this summer. As the Moto X was announced in August last year and was available in early September. With Motorola closing down their MotoMaker plant this year, I don’t expect to see them put out any customization options except for maybe some replaceable backs like the Moto G and Moto E have.
How many of you are excited to see what Motorola has coming later this year?
