Moto X1 evleaks

To say we’re hyped over September 4th’s Motorola event would be an understatement. Where we already have a good idea of what is going to be announced in Chicago, when it comes to the Motorola Moto X+1, there’s still a few small details seemingly left uncovered.

Today, the folks at HelloMotoHK happened upon a few new details regarding the upcoming smartphone as it relates to the display and camera capabilities of the device. According to the leaked screenshot shown below listing off a few of the phone’s upcoming features, the phone could come equipped with some kind of 3D recognition. While not much else was said, memories of the Amazon Fire Phone immediately come to mind. We’ve actually seen Motorola toy around with 3D recognition in the past with their Windy Day app. Whether this is merely more of that, or 4 cameras on the face of the phone is too early to say, but we’re intrigued.

Also mentioned in the spec sheet is something about a “super camera” featuring an “optical zoom.” Although leaked images of the phone didn’t show anything particularly special about the Moto X+1’s camera, it did have an interested flash setup, with 2 LEDs outfitted on each side of the camera lens. But we wouldn’t get your hopes up too much about this alleged “super camera.” According to early reports from a user who’s played with the phone, the camera still leaves a lot to be desired.

Of course, we’ll reserve judgement until we get our hands on the phone come Thursday of next week.
