Motorola had a busy week last week with the launch of the new entry-level Moto E and the Moto G with LTE. Up next are likely the Moto 360 smartwatch and the Moto X successor although Motorola could also have a phablet in the works. While Moto X+1 details are still scarce, they are starting to emerge in the leadup to an expected announcement sometime this summer.
Courtesy of the usually reliable @evleaks, who apparently likes to refer to himself as a “leak artist,” today revealed that the Moto X+1 also goes by the codename Victara. He also confirmed that it is headed to all four major U.S. carriers. If that’s the case, it bodes well for it making its way north of the border and hopefully with a range of carriers.
Earlier this month, a Motorola sitemap suggested that at least three major U.S. carriers, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon were on board with T-Mobile USA to be the lone holdout (as it did with the Moto X). It now appears that either T-Mobile USA has had a change of heart or Motorola will offer a compatible variant directly on its website.
As for the Moto X+1, little about the device itself is still known. It does appear that 25 different backplate options will be offered, including wooden ones and leather ones for the first time. It will also likely benefit from a number of hardware upgrades including a better processor, better display and better camera. It will also sport a number of new features on the software side.
With a codename and device name in hand, we’ll see what else turns up about the Moto X+1 in the coming weeks.
