After the folks at TK Tech News put out a $25,000 bounty for anyone willing to leak the upcoming Moto X+1, it seems that bounty has now been claimed. Originally upset at a “company” trying to plant false leaks, it seems they now have the real deal on their hands. Part 1 of 5 leaks coming soon gives us a quick look at an alleged Moto X+1 prototype — complete with “Motorola Confidential Property” branding — as it’s boot animation is shown off to the world.
Update: Apparently, this is the same beta boot animation as found on the Motorola test devices dating all the way back to February here. What that means, is up for you to decide. Thanks, M477!
TK Tech News seems very confident that the phone he has in his possession is in fact that elusive Motorola Moto X+1. In blog posts, he touts the display as “amazing” and says the phone is noticeably thinner than the original Moto X. He also says it features a micro SD card slot, something not found in the original Moto X. According to his sources, we could be seeing a September release date for the Moto X+1, but we’ll have to wait and see how that all pans out.
In the meantime, check out the video below for a brief look at the phone’s boot animation and we’ll be on the look out for more leaks said to arrive this week. Cheers.
