    When you're trying to reduce costs, every little bit counts. That extra $30 for the OEMs translates into a bigger mark-up for the consumer.
    Its not an EXTRA $30. No one knows the actual costs but the rough numbers today MAY be something like $20 for the 800, $25 for the 801 and $30 for the 805. I don't know the real numbers, but those are realistic guesses, probably within 10-20% of real numbers.

    Its a nominal difference in costs for a significant PR difference, and probable slight real world performance difference.

    Also, one reason no phone has used the 805 may be a lack of integrated modem. This would actually be right up Moto's alley as they used TI for a long time since they did better with radios then Qualcom. Moto could go back to this with the 805.

    Great news.
    My impression: considerable upgrade to processor, battery life, screen.
    Minor increase in size.
    All good.

    Well, it's been nothing but rumors, but it's possible. My guess would be for a SD800, but we'll have to wait until they announce something. Hopefully soon

    Does the 801 like the 800 have the dedicated low power core? I'd guess Moto would try to keep some of the x8 functions with the advanced snapdragon chips.

    Should be a Nvidia K1 processor. I want a gaming phone. Maybe I can ditch my Xbox for good.

    I believe so. The 801 was based off of the 800, so it doesn't make sense to remove that feature.

    Haha, I don't see that happening any time soon
    But the SD801 is still powerful for gaming

    A K1 would be even better. Most powerful processor only in one tablet. Shame 😢

    Would probably be a drain on the battery. Makes sense that a more powerful processor would be in a larger device that has more space for components

    805 is right around the corner, which means people can and will still call Moto's next old and midrange. Specs, schmecks.

    And it will still outperform 90% of the phones with the 805

    Don't get me wrong, I would be more than happy with the 800 based on how I know Motorola will optimize the phone regardless. .

    With the metal edge around the phone, it has a more premium feel, but as a whole it's really just more of the same...which is to say still very, very good. It's evolutionary in nature, whereas the original X was more revolutionary.
    Are you saying that you have held the device, or are you just making an assumption. Just more of the same. That seems to be a very subjective description.

    Yes, I've held the device (x+1) many times over the last few months. I have seen at least 3 iterations of it. Today, I even got to hold Shamu (nexus 6).

    The X-1. I would assume that your lips supposed to be sealed ;-) but can u confirm a screen size? Would u say in overall dimensions, is it larger or smaller then a nexus 5.


    You should contact tktech news. He's been real interested in the moto x+1 but doesn't seem to have any solid stuff. I'm sure he would make it worth your while.

    The size of which? I don't know the exact (down to the tenth) sizes.

    If I wanted to, I could probably make quite a bit by myself, but I'm not looking to get anyone in trouble. I'm just sharing info with fellow tech geeks. ...And besides, I'm just some guy on an internet forum.

    Well since you're just some guy, and I believe everything I read on the internet, do you have any other info you could share? Such as, how does it feel in hand, and is there any new features that are interesting?

    Happasaiyan is like our own personal @evleaks. He may be trolling us, but even if that's the case I tip my hat to him for a job well done. He's certainly more believable than tktech news.

    Nothing I haven't shared around here already, but it (X+1) feels great in the hand. Not as good as the original X because of the size, but better than. say, an S5. The metal edges and the thinness of the edges help it grip better. The bigger dimple (it's not really a "dimple" anymore because it's pretty big) feels nice. I've seen multi-circle active display notifications, which I assume will come via a play store update to the X, but that's just my opinion. The X+1 will have additional sensors in the bottom bezel (not seen in the popular bamboo X+1 leak) that will offer hands-free gesture controls. I haven't seen the controls in action, just heard about what they will be used for.

    If you want something new, I got hands-on with the leather version last week. Pretty nice- the texture felt like a broken-in baseball glove. Similar color, too (though there will be other colors...I think 2 more). I wouldn't get leather, but it seemed nice. There are plans to offer sports-themed leather-backed (basketball, football) devices.

    Oh, and the Sept 25th release is accurate "if everything goes to plan."
