A tweet sent out by serial tipster @evleaks, reveals a probable render of the Motorola Moto X+1. The smartphone is enclosed in a bumper case made precisely for the handset.

Since it’s got a protective cover, it’s not easy to garner many details of the phone itself from this render. We can see that the device’s rear camera mounted in the same location as the Moto X. Meanwhile, the front of the Moto X+1 has on-screen buttons and could be having a front-facing speaker similar to the one found on the Moto E. The only exciting thing that might be worth talking about here is the single, solitary sensor at the top of the back of the Moto X+1 render. That’s more than likely the flash, but it seems pretty lackluster.

The Motorola Moto X+1 is expected to offer a bump up in specs over its predecessor Motorola Moto X. The new variant is expected to sport a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. This tops the 4.7 inch display and 720 x 1280 resolution found on Moto X.The pixel density boosted from the 316ppi to the 441ppi on the Moto X+1.The silicon also is getting walloped, from a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU to a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU. One welcomed alteration is the addition of a microSD card slot, something that was missing from the Moto X.

Details on the Moto X+1 are still blur, but it is expected that Motorola’s next flagship will come to all four major U.S. carriers. Looking at this picture, it appears as though Motorola has decided to stick to a near-stock build of Android, which is exciting news since it hopefully concludes that we’ll continue to see prompt OS updates.

Any comments on the Moto X+1 snapshot? Are you looking ahead to the successor to the Moto X?
