Moto X+1 prototype photos show Moto X-like design, aluminum outer edge


There have been a multitude of Moto X+1 leaks in recent months, but most of them have focused on the device’s name or its customization options. Today we’re finally getting a look at what may be the X+1 itself.

An Android Police source has shared several photos of what’s said to be a “near-final prototype” of the Moto X+1, complete with a Moto X-like design and wooden backside. The front of the device looks similar to the Moto X, but one change is that it’s got a front speaker similar to the one found on the Moto E. The X+1’s screen is said to measure 5.1 inches, up from the 4.7-inch screen found on the X.


The outer edge of this Moto X+1 prototype is said to be made of aluminum rather than the plastic edge of the Moto X. Finally, the backside of this Moto X+1 features a large camera module with a dual LED flash as well as an inset Motorola logo.

Rumors have suggested that the Moto X+1 could debut at the end of September, a little over a year after the original Moto X’s debut. If that is indeed the case, then it’s likely that Motorola is pretty much finished with the Moto X+1 hardware at this point. Interestingly, though, the device in these images is missing the “M” with a circle around it like we’ve seen on previous Motorola prototype hardware.

What do you think of this purported Moto X+1?
