This is what we’ve come to, eh? So desperate for Moto X+1 news, we’ll take even the worst of in-the-wild photos and use them as fuel for the hype train. If this is how it’s gotta be, this is how it’s gotta be. Feast your eyes on what could possibly, maybe be the first real picture of the Moto X+1.
Spotted on a Chicago subway, @evleaks was sent the photo you see below under the assumption that it is a Moto X+1 in a dummy case, used for concealing unreleased phones in public. You can’t see much of anything, but there is one key takeaway that @evleaks mentions that makes this photo a tad more interesting. Whereas the Moto X has a 4.7-inch display, the Moto X+1 looks to be at least 5 inches. Normally we’d be a little upset that Motorola is going to mess with such a good thing, but they managed to keep the overall size of the original Moto X impressively small, so we imagine they’ll do the same with the Moto X+1 no matter how large the display may end up being.
As for what makes this photo seem real, Motorola is based in Chicago, and if you look really hard you can see what appears to be the Motorola prototype logo in the upper left corner. If this does turn out to be real, what do you think? A Moto X+1 with a 5-inch of more display could work very well if Motorola does it right.
