Latest Moto X+1 leak shows off mysterious sensors and more


On September 4th, Motorola will be unveiling the Moto X+1, the Moto 360 and a couple of other devices at an event in Chicago. While the X+1 has already leaked in pictures, there is still quite a bit of mystery surrounding the device. 

TK from TK Tech News has posted a new set of pictures of the Moto X+1, which gives us a clear look at the handset and reveals some new information about it. According to TK, the dimpled logo on the back of the Moto X+1 will act as a button — which can apparently also be re-programmed according to a user’s liking.


According to TK’s source, the Moto X+1 will come with an aluminium frame with its back being made of either plastic, leather and wood. Apparently, there will also be a carbon fiber option, though it is going to be exclusive to Verizon for the holiday season.

The front image of the device also confirm the presence of front-facing speakers and some mysterious sensors whose functionality is not really clear at this point. Conflicting reports suggest that they will be used for some 3D functionality on the phone or will work in tandem with the new Moto app to be pre-loaded on the phone.
