We all know Evan Blass has retired from the leaks game, but as one last hurrah, he’s thrown out a retirement gift, press renders of the Moto X+1 for Verizon.
With a launch expected to be only weeks away, the PR department at Motorola and various carriers in the US are ramping up for it, creating press renders, and it’s only natural that at least one will leak. Here we see the Moto X+1, with its large front-facing speakers and a wooden back plate. The picture also shows off an overly large ring around a massive camera lens, as well as a massive Motorola logo on the back.

The top appears to have the same wedge as the Moto X, with a centre mounted 3.5mm headphone jack.
Spec wise we last saw the Moto X+1 dropping past GFXBench with a 5.2″ 1920×1080 resolution display, with 2GB RAM, 10GB Storage, 12MP Rear Camera with AF, Flash and 2MP Front-Facing Camera. The processor is still unclear but a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 wouldn’t be out of place.
While Verizon branded, Motorola has proven with the Moto G and Moto E that they can do a decently fast global rollout and we hope the Moto X followup will be rolled into the Australian market quite quickly.
As a parting gift to Evan, why not head across to the IndieGoGo page and support Evan in his retirement? If all the people who enjoyed his leaks gave a $1, we’d be at the goal now.
