Motorola will host an event on September 4, where it is expected to take the wraps off the successor to the Moto X and the Moto G, and the Moto 360 smartwatch. With a couple of days to go for the event, leakster TKTechNews has put up a video that allegedly shows live photos of the Moto X successor.

The device in the video is one of the wood-back variants and clearly shows the front and back of the device. According to the leakster, the Motorola logo at the back is actually a power button. There are however conflicting reports about the four sensors on the front. The leakster claims that they are either for Motorola’s new Moto Aware feature, or they could be cameras to track the user’s face movements similar to what Amazon Fire phone does. The former is said to be a new feature that automatically changes your phone’s settings, security settings, and UI based on your location or time of day.

In addition to the leaked photos, the folks at Phandroid have come across a Verizon webpage that lists the Moto X+1, but refers to it as “The new Moto X.” In addition to the Verizon webpage, the publication has also come across a few other internal documents that refer to the forthcoming smartphone as The new Moto X.
From what we know so far, the Moto X+1 aka The new Moto X is said to feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display and will be powered by a Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Also likely to be featured are 12-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 32GB/64GB internal storage. Like the Moto G and the Moto X, there won’t be a microSD card slot to expand the storage.
