The speculation around the Moto X+1 refuses to die, even when we’ve entered the month in which it’s expected to be unveiled by Motorola. Word out on the street right now is that the smartphone will start being sold by Verizon on September 25.
Now if Motorola unveils the Moto X+1 sometime this month, September 25 is quite long away for Verizon to begin offering it. So, if this rumor is to be believed, Motorola might not reveal the smartphone in August or it could unveil it but release it through another(other) carrier(s) sometime soon after that.
The possibility of the latter happening is sharp, as that was somewhat the case with the Moto X when it was launched in August last year. As has been pointed out by Droid Life, Motorola had said in February that its new flagship as well as a smartwatch (Moto 360) will arrive ‘late’ this summer.
Now, as summer officially ends on September 22 waiting until September 25 will mean breaking a promise for Motorola. This is yet another piece of evidence pointing towards the possibility that the company will release the device through another(other) carrier(s) sometime before bringing it to Verizon.
If leaks are to be believed, the Moto X+1 will come with support for even more customization options than its predecessor. It will apparently run on a Snapdragon 801 chipset, and will kick in a 5.2-inch 1080p full HD display, apart from other advanced components.
The Moto X+1 is widely believed to have been set up for an August unveiling. There’s also a possibility of the Moto 360 smartwatch being released alongside it.
