Motorola teased earlier this year that the follow-up to the Moto X would arrive in the “late summer,” but the company hasn’t revealed any other details about the device since. Thankfully, the rumor mill isn’t so tight-lipped.
According to a tweet sent by well-known leakster @evleaks, the Moto X+1 isn’t expected to launch until “the literal end of summer.” He goes on to estimate that a release could happen during the final days of September.
The original Moto X debuted in late August last year, so if today’s report holds true, the Moto X’s successor will come a little over a year after the first model. That’s not uncommon in the mobile industry in which more and more manufacturers are following a yearly refresh cycle for their flagship models.
Details about the Moto X+1 are still fairly light, but it’s said that the device is codenamed “Victara” and that it will launch on all four major U.S. carriers. Additionally, the Moto X+1 is expected to have around 25 different custom back options available through Moto Maker, including some leather materials.
What features will the follow-up to the Moto X need for it to be a “must-buy” for you?
