Moto X+1 returns in new video appearances
Earlier this week, the Moto X successor we’ve been following as the X+1 broke cover and starred in a brief video showing off its boot animation. While the idea of seeing this handset in the flesh was fascinating, there ultimately wasn’t a lot for us to check out, due to the necessary steps taken to obscure enough of the hardware to avoid showing any identifying marks that might clue Motorola in to the tipster’s identity. We were promised that more videos were coming, and now we’ve got a couple new ones to share with you.
First off, if you’re looking for that original video, it’s down; despite the best intentions, some identifying marks slipped through. As a result, we get the new video embedded here, which shows a bit more of the handset’s facade, while taking a second stab at hiding those tracking marks – hence, the plastic wrap.
We do learn some details about the hardware, like what seems to be a new choice for button materials in the X+1, and a slightly modified layout compared to the Moto X.
There’s also a close-up look at the phone’s display, which will reportedly employ a 1080p panel – a significant upgrade from the 720p screen on the Moto X.
Once again, though, we find ourselves waiting for the next promised X+1 videos from the future, when the artful application of some tape should hopefully block enough of that tracking info to finally give us a clear look at the phone, no plastic wrap or extreme framing to worry about.
