Moto X+1 Front Panel Leaks Out, Shows How Much Larger than the Moto X it Truly Is

August 15, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’re expecting the Moto X+1 to be announced and launched on September 4th, since Motorola is holding their own event in Chicago on September 4th. We’re starting to see lots of leaks of the Moto X+1 already, including the front panel of the Moto X+1 which just leaked out from HelloMotoHK on Facebook. In the image above you can see the front panel next to the Moto X. Where you can really see how much larger the Moto X+1 is than the Moto X. We do have more images below. And looking at them, it’s hard to tell just how much bigger it is than the Moto X that Motorola announced last year. It looks a little bit taller, but as far as how wide it is, it’s a bit difficult to compare right now. So it’s looking like the Moto X+1 is as much bigger than the Moto X as the LG G3 and LG G2.

It also almost looks like we’ve got front-facing speakers like on the Moto E. Which I’m not sure about. As they look rather ugly on the Moto E in my opinion. But then again those cut outs could be for something else entirely – I’m just not sure exactly what just yet. The Moto X+1 is supposedly going to be a 5.2-inch display, which is half an inch larger than the Moto X, and the size doesn’t vary all that much, which is interesting and awesome. Right now it looks like Motorola and LG are the ones with the small bezels, and I’m really liking that direction, myself.

We should know more about the Moto X+1 and the Moto G2 or G+1, in a couple of weeks when Motorola officially takes the wraps off of these two devices and a few other goodies. How many of you are excited for the Moto X+1?
