The Moto X+1 is one of the upcoming devices Motorola is planning to release. This was rumoured in the past, but for some odd reason Motorola has posted this go-to-market name on MotoMaker in the States.

The specific details as to how it’ll be different to the first-gen Moto X is unclear, but we’ll probably see a slight boost in processor and camera. In addition, while Moto Maker isn’t available in Canada yet, the Moto X+1 will have 25 backplate options from 5 categories: Cool, Neutral, Warm, Wood and Leather.

Motorola is preparing to unveil some new products on May 13th that are “Made to last. Priced for all.”

    Still waiting for Motomaker for the X to come to Canada….guess that it’s a non-starter now.

    • Sean Walton

      We are all waiting.

    • Matthew

      I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    Canada Not getting motomaker!

  • TP

    What’s up with all these ‘One’ naming convention? A new trend? HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Oneplus One, Moto X Plus One..

    • J. W.

      One name to rule them all…

  • andy c

    I wonder if it’s real leather or Samsung leather…..

    • Phil Deveau

      I believe you mean Samsung bandaid…

    I never will understand why they aren’t calling it X2 instead, unless this phone will just be a small improvement compared to the X but still.. X+1 sounds so stupid. X1 would be better anyways.

    • Audrey Burne

      Maybe it might be confused with the droid X2, which was an old and ancient phone back then.

    • Parijat Mishra

      Like you said, this is probably going to be a small improvement on the X. Maybe an updated processor and a better camera? That’s why they might have gone for “X+1” instead of X2..

  • Mo Dabbas

    I’m assuming this phone would be developed while owned by google not by Lenovo. so I can see a similar (but improved) device. Hopefully they work on that camera. Motorola is notorious with their bad cameras.

    I agree with the rest about the naming. not the greatest out there.
