Motorola website outs Moto X+1 as the name of its next flagship

Moto X
Wonder what the '+1' means...

It seems the rumors that Motorola is using the same naming scheme as Dungeons and Dragons are true.

The successor to last year's popular Moto X will be called the Moto X+1, according to a report that popped up in April, and some hard evidence to support the name just appeared on Motorola's own website.

This has since been corrected, but for a time if you changed the the URL for Motorola's Moto Maker website (from FLEXR1 to FLEXR2) you got a placeholder site with the name "Moto X+1" on it, according to the German site mobiFlip.

Unless the people building Motorola's websites are getting their info from the same place we are, that's a pretty good indication that Moto X+1 is the phone's real name.

All will be revealed

Besides the moniker, little is known about the next Moto X, though what could be its specs appeared on a benchmarking site last week.

The site pegged a phone called the XT912A with a 5.2-inch 1080p HD screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 1.7GB of memory (probably more like 2GB), 24GB of internal storage and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

There's good indication that the XT912A refers to the Moto X+1 - including the fact that the Moto X used the same model number - but it might also be a Droid Razr successor, so there remains some doubt.

In fact, all the rumors about the Moto X+1 so far come with a pinch of doubt, but given the original Moto X was announced in summer 2013 it's probably safe to bet that a reveal is coming soon.
