Just a little under a month ago a leak attempted to out Motorola’s branding for its presumed Moto X successor, the X+1. We had that name, and we also had the rumor that this model would support new custom backplate options, including some leather selections. More recently, some specs have surfaced that may just detail what kind of hardware this phone could launch with, and we’ve even learned of an upcoming Motorola launch event. Based on earlier comments from the manufacturer, we’re guessing it’s still too early for the X+1 to make its debut, but that doesn’t mean we’re not still very interested in tracking its story. Today the latest chapter leads us to Motorola’s front door, with signs of the X+1 popping up in Moto Maker.
It’s quite simple: whereas the Moto Maker for the Moto X uses an ID of FLEXR1 in the site’s URL, someone noticed that changing that to FLEXR2 causes the page to switch over to Moto X+1 mode. For the moment, much of the content (including any imagery) is broken, but we unmistakably see one big “Moto X+1 Details” button.
And while it’s a bit of an academic distinction, this helps solidify expectations that the phone will be the X+1 and not the X + 1. With that previous leak breaking up all the characters for artistic license, we couldn’t be sure how the branding would work.
Then again, maybe this is all placeholder stuff, and that X+1 is just there until Motorola comes up with a more unique name; like we said, most of the content on this page is broken, indicating that it’s far from a commercially ready state.
