Leaks Lift The Lid On Impressive New Motorola Moto X+1

New leaks appear to have lifted the lid on a new phone from Motorola, bringing yet another device to the fore in what has been a very busy period for the manufacturer.

In recent weeks, it has revealed its budget-friendly Motorola Moto E and an updated version of its popular Motorola Moto G, now coming with 4G capabilities, but according to notoriously accurate tipster @evleaks on Twitter, the Motorola Moto X+1 could be on shelves soon, after it posted most of the specs online.

In terms of its design, which can be mostly seen from the front facing images we've seen so far, it can be seen that it looks quite like the Moto E in many ways, particularly with the dual speaker grills. 

On the back, there is less to see, with only the single camera sat in place on the rear of the handset. Strangely, it doesn't seem to have the built in flash that we all would have expected to see - or at least the case that was housing it didn't have a cut out hole for the flash to work anyway.

While much of the design of the phone has been leaked in previous weeks, these new images seem to show something different, leading to many believing the @evleaks version to be the most up to date.

The bottom of the phone appears to have a different shape slightly, and there is a longer section below the screen than we had seen in previous leaks.

However, while @evleaks is infamously good with getting things on the nose, there are some who are sceptical that the latest images are real, mostly thanks to the fact that the device seems to be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat. 

Experts are predicting that the Moto X+1 will actually ship with a large 1920 x 1080 resolution screen which could be anything up to 5.2 inches in size, two full gigabytes of RAM and a more substantial Snapdragon 800 processor.
