Moto X+1 Leaks Out in Set of Photos, Complete With Wooden Back

It’s been a little while since we heard anything more about the Moto X+1, and while it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the latest from Motorola is going to be launching later this summer, we’ve yet to hear much about it. Now though, it seems that the Moto X+1 is closer to release than we though, as Android Police have been passed a set of images of what sure seems like another Moto X device, with a familiar design language as well as a wooden back panel to boot.

On the front of the device, we’re looking at a fairly standard Motorola device, with no logos of any kind and the same speaker setup as we saw with the Moto E. Android Police’s source has said that the display here is a 5.1-inch panel, which is a bit of a jump from the 4.7-inch display used last year. The real fun however, is found around back and around the side of this – what we’re assuming to be – nearly final prototype. The sides on this device are clad with aluminum and the rear cover is similar to the wooden ones available right now through Moto Maker. Where things are a little different on the rear however, is how the LED flash is setup with the camera. You’ll notice from the gallery below that there are two LEDs either side of the camera lens, creating one circle for flash and camera.

As with everything, there’s no way to be sure if this is a real device, but it stand to reason that Motorola is getting ready to release their next flagship device this time of year. Specs wise, the Moto X+1 is presumably going to feature some sort of Snapdragon 800 device as that processor family does support always-listening out of the box, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see some special sauce from Motorola here. Take a look at the leaked images in the gallery below.
