We’re always suspicious of “accidental” leaks, but – at the risk of sounding a tad naïve – this one seems genuine. Probably.
In response to an issue plaguing (bit of an exaggeration, perhaps) the Moto G, Motorola guy Punit Soni has shared a screenshot from an unspecified Motorola phone with a 1080p resolution. But wait; the Moto X and Moto G are 720p... Moto X+1, anyone?
Punit was writing in response to this article on Android Police, bemoaning the fact that the Motorola Moto G constantly displays the network name, in full, in the status bar.
That’s particularly irksome if you happen to be on, for example, “CYTAMOBILE-VODAFON”, as it leaves little room for, y’know, notifications.
“In our 4.4.3 update (rolling out currently), we have a user setting under the network settings that lets the user disable the network name in status bar,” writes Punit on Google+, but the truly interesting thing is the 1080p resolution on the accompanying screenshot.
Officially, Motorola hasn’t said much beyond this tweet promising a “late summer” release for the “next version of Moto X”, thought to be called the Moto X+1.
Rumoured Moto X+1 specs include a 5.2in 1080p display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 12MP rear camera, alongside a slew of customisable backplate options, though it remains to be seen how the Lenovo takeover will affect things.
