The Moto X+1 is one of the most anticipated smartphones on my personal list this year, and I’m sure it will be on lots of other people’s too. After doing such a fabulous job with the original Moto X, Motorola has since been sold to new owners, Lenovo, who will want to keep the short tradition of quality going. Earlier on in the week we received some tip-offs at specs and price, and I’m nervous that it isn’t going to be as big of a success when reading them. Many people didn’t agree with the price and wanted to see the price reduced this year. That looks to be happening, but there’s every chance that comes at the expense of specs.

Right now it’s too early to start speculating or thinking negatively about this handset because we don’t know anything official until it gets unveiled. Speaking of which, is this the real Moto X+1 in this leaked picture showing it wrapped up in saran plastic? It isn’t normally how we see our smartphones come. Usually, manufacturers issue them in boxes minus the saran but hey; it doesn’t lose it’s appeal to me. Furthermore, it offers an excellent way to see leaks of handsets if we get them coming in this wrap but it does beg the question why didn’t he take it off before pressing the record button?

The video presenter speaks about an intermittent camera that works on and off and he also reveals some of the specs all of which while keeping it neatly wrapped up. The reason could be to do with him being asked to pull down the original video that he had because it showed some “identifying notches.” We don’t know, and he doesn’t stipulate who told him to remove it (obviously somebody from Motorola). But this TK Tech News WordPress blog that was nothing more than a few views a day project has ballooned to going viral over the last seven days due to his remarkable footage.

From what we can piece together the Moto X+1 is coming with a 5.0-inch display, a 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system chip, 2048 MB RAM system memory and a whopping 64 GB of built-in storage after my rants all over famous Android-blogs weren’t for nothing. I’m only kidding; I’m sure it had nothing to do with my comments, but I have been urging these manufacturers to offer fewer specs with more memory because most women I know would prefer it. A Snappy 800 processor is as low as you will want to go considering we are starting to see the 805 SoC coming now. With that being said, we know the 800 performs well and can handle gaming requests with ease.
