When Motorola offered the Moto X for reduced prices for 24 hours yesterday, it was a good sign that the company was trying to clear out stocks as it prepares to launch the Moto X+1, the successor to the Moto X. Well, today yet another hint has been dropped of the X+1’s imminent arrival – the handset has cropped up on Motorola’s MotoMaker website.
Opening the MotoMaker page for the Moto X and replacing its codename (FLEXR1) in the address bar with “FLEXR2” brings up a placeholder page for the Moto X+1. More than just confirming that the handset is arriving sooner rather than later, the listing confirms that X+1 is indeed what Motorola will be calling its next handset, instead of something simple like the Moto E, the company’s upcoming Moto G-like budget handset.
Alas, MotoMaker doesn’t list any details about the device. Previous leaks have revealed that consumers will have a choice of 25 back covers on the phone, but other than that, we’re still no closer to knowing what hardware it will carry. Well, not that that will matter, since Motorola will likely be once again focusing on the software experience instead of flaunting the spec sheet.
