The Motorola Moto X+1 (XT1097) will be equipped with a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat. It will be powered by either a quad-core Snapdragon 800 or quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Its internal storage space is expected to be 16GB which could be further expanded using a microSD card slot. If you have a closer look at the image, you would see a larger camera sensor with dual-LED flash. This camera is expected to have a resolution of 12MP which can record 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) videos at 30 FPS. Even the front-facing 2MP camera will be able to record full HD 1080p videos.
According to the leaked press image, the Moto X+1 will have front-facing stereo speakers. Also, it looks like the device comes with four sensors on the front whose details are yet unknown. Could they be cameras for some 3D interaction with the user, just like the Amazon Kindle Fire Phone? Just like the Moto G, Motorola is currently selling the Moto X in India at a discounted price which means that it might phase it out soon and replace it with the Moto X+1.
