Motorola Moto X+1 fully revealed in one last @evleaks leak

Motorola Moto X+1 fully revealed in one last @evleaks leakSerial Twitter leakster @evleaks announced he was hanging up his hashtag a fortnight ago, but he's decided to push out one last leak for old times' sake: some press renders of the Motorola Moto X+1.

The quartet of images give us a clear look at the Moto X+1's front and rear, including the quintessential wooden back introduced by the first-gen Moto X last year.

Other visual highlights that differ from the current model include a dual LED flash and front-facing speaker, but otherwise it's pretty much what we were expecting from a visual point of view.

The Moto X+1 is set to be one of the attractions launched at a Motorola event on 4 September, along with the Moto G2 and the Moto 360 smartwatch.

And while @evleaks didn't accompany the press renders with any claimed specs, previous rumours have given us a good idea of what to expect.

With its 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5.2in full HD display and 12MP camera, the Moto X+1 is looking a lot more high-end than the current model.

One other change of tactics we're hoping to see is for Motorola to be more international in its approach to distribution.

The Moto X took more than six months to make it beyond the US after its initial launch last Summer. But with Moto having backtracked from its manufactured in the USA schtick, and having since been bought out by Chinese firm Lenovo, hopefully we can look forward to a more global mindset this time around.

if that's a 5.2" screen, that's a very big phone. Almost Z2 sized.
