The official Moto Maker website now lists the yet-to-be-announced Moto X+1. A German publication named Mobiflip spotted the listing first, findng that the Moto X+1 placeholder on Moto Maker site could be found by replacing the Moto X's codename FLEXR1 to FLEXR2 in the URL.
Notably, the Moto Maker sitedoes not reveal any details of the Moto X+1 but certainly confirms the name of the device.
Motorola back in February had tipped that the next version of Moto X was scheduled to launch late in the US summer. In addition, phone tipster @evleaks has been on a roll leaking information about the next Moto X. First the name 'Moto X+1', and later a list of customisation colours of the alleged Moto X (Review) successor were leaked by the tipster.
Another report noted a new handset, speculated to be the Moto X's successor, codenamed Motorola XT912A, whose specifications surfaced online in a benchmark result listing.
Earlier on Thursday, after a flurry of rumours about the Moto G's successor, Motorola officially confirmed that it's hosting a special event on May 13, where the company would announce a new budget smartphone.
Motorola started sending invites for a May 13 event in London and in India. The invite said the "next Motorola smartphone" will "connect more people to the world's information and each other," while also claiming that the upcoming smartphone is "made to last [and] priced for all."
