Now that we have a date for Motorola's event – which is September 4th. We are now beginning to see quite a bit of leaks and rumors for Motorola's next flagship, the Moto X+1 or the Moto X2. Even though that's not all they've got planned for September 4th.
Today, some benchmarks appeared for the Moto X+1, and it shows quite a few specs, which may look familiar. And that's because we've seen this list of specs before, leading us to believe that it is close to the real deal. According to the GFX Bench listing, we're looking at a 5.2-inch 1080p display (benchmarks don't say whether it's AMOLED, IPS, etc.), Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 12MP camera on the back capable of 4K, with a 2MP front-facing camera. No word on battery just yet, but with it being a 5.2-inch display, we could see a 3000mAh battery inside. Seeing as the LG G2 last year was a 5.2-inch display and had a 3000mAh battery inside. It's also important to note that both LG and Motorola use step batteries. And in fact, Motorola uses LG's batteries. And Motorola has always had great battery life, but just wait for Android L, and it'll be even better.
This Moto X+1 is running Android 4.4.4 KitKat which is currently the latest version of Android. Yes, Android L is official, but not available yet. It's only a developer preview right now, and super buggy as a result. So Motorola's event is September 4th, in the middle of one of the craziest weeks of the year for tech bloggers like us. As we have Samsung, Sony, Huawei, HTC, ASUS, and Motorola press conferences all in 48 hours of each other. So you'll want to stay glued to Android Headlines for all the information coming out that week! How many of you are interested in the Moto X+1? Let us know in the comments down below.
