Ahead of the official announcement of the Moto X+1, the successor of the Moto X that is believed to be upcoming flagship smartphone of the firm, notorious Twitter leakster @evleaks has shared the press render of the handset. The leak is claimed to be a gift to mark his confirmation of retirement that was announced lately.

The press render of the Moto X+1 features the Verizon branding and it shows two different versions of the handset – one in black and the other with a wooden back cover. The design is similar to what we have already seen by means of earlier leaks and it is similar to that of its predecessor – Moto X except for the addition of stereo speakers at the front.

The camera arrangement at the rear also appears to be different with something like a dual setup including two small flash units one on either side of the camera sensor. This dual LED flash setup will replace the conventional single LED flash that is onboard the previous generation models and makes the handset on par with the other high-end models that are launched these days.

We will get to know more details regarding the Moto X+1 in a couple of weeks when the handset is unveiled officially.
