Rumored Motorola Moto X+1 makes its appearance

It has been close to a year since the release of Motorola’s flagship, the Moto X. The phone had a unique approach, executing with a minimalist design, near stock Android experience, and delivering a flagship class experience without flagship specifications. Although Motorola has now since been sold to Lenovo, it looks like the rumored successor to the Moto X, the Moto X+1, will continue on the same path, employing a similar design language as its predecessor. 

According to Android Police, they have received pictures of what could be a prototype of the Moto X+1. The device looks similar to its predecessor, but does look a bit wider than the Moto X. This could be due to the larger screen, which is claimed to measures in at 5.1 inches. The device also has an aluminum or metallic bezel that occupies the mid section of the device. The back is made of wood, which will undoubtedly be an option from Moto Maker. The rear camera has a thick metallic ring surrounding the lens that looks to house a dual LED flash system.

Although the device looks like it could be the successor to the Moto X, you should take this with a grain of salt until Motorola makes an official announcement.

I'd like it if more manufacturers were willing to experiment in the customization department a little more like Motorola has. Here's hoping Motorola jumps into the Windows Phone platform by the end of 2015, when I'm due for a new phone. :p

Isn't Moto Maker a huge money pit?

I agree that it's cool... but 30 different back colors, 2 front colors, 10 accent colors... that's a ton of combinations.

Doesn't that subtract from the bottom line?

Maybe that's why Motorola has changed ownership twice in the last few years.

Imho, all these white phones look awful in combination with the black screen. Whomever thought this was a good design language?

Apple.

No kidding, first thing I thought of when I saw the above image was an old station wagon. I'm sure there's going to be a few who like it, but certainly an odd choice for a "flagship" device.
