Specs for the Moto X+1 purportedly outed on Brazillian phone retailers website

Specs for the Moto X+1 purportedly outed on Brazillian phone retailers website

Seems Motorola has some issues with secrecy in Brazil, after having the Moto E specs outed just days prior to the launch by a phone shop in Brazil, it seems they’ve leaked the specs on Motorolas upcoming flagship replacement – the Moto X+1. The site who leaked the details – livrarialogos – is showing an old picture of the Moto X, so no press renders have gone up for the phone as yet. So, like any ‘leak’ take this with a grain of salt. Droid-life who originally reported on the leak advised that there was a rider (which has since[Read More...]

A closer look: Moto 360

A closer look: Moto 360

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to the Moto 360, in the flesh. It isn’t my flesh, but you’re seeing Motorola’s new smartwatch courtesy of David Pierce again from the Verge. Before we take a look at the watch in closer detail, here’s his thoughts on the watch and its feel: The Moto 360 isn’t actually that big. It’s solid and high-end, and it’s definitely in the larger end of the smartwatch spectrum, but it quickly felt natural on my wrist. Light, round, and comfortable. David thought the 360 was something pretty special, and from the looks we’d have[Read More...]

The Moto X+1 is probably very close to a launch right now, leaks have been getting closer together as we get closer and today EvLeaks has shown off what he says is the Moto X+1 ensconced in a protective case. It’s a good looking render, which if the clock in the top right of the screenshot is to be believed, confirms the phone will launch with Android 4.4 (KitKat). That could however change quite quickly depending on the outcome of Google I/O this week, if Google decides to release a new version Android. An announcement of which, wouldn’t be too[Read More...]
