Motorola has all but confirmed the name of the Moto X successor as Moto X+1. That's how it appears today, at least.

Earlier this week, visitors to MotoMaker discovered that by changing the URL of the Moto X by one character, the name of the tab would switch to Moto X+1. Motorola has since adjusted the website, but as the Android faithful know, that device name has spun through the rumor mill over the last few weeks.

Recently spied benchmarks suggest the Moto X+1 could run Android 4.4.3 KitKat and feature a 5.2-inch 1080p HD screen and a 12-megapixel rear camera. Under the hood, details are purported to include a Snapdragon 800 processor, 1.7GB of RAM, and 24GB of internal storage.

Motorola has an event planned for May 13 where we expect to see the introduction of a new line of smartphones. One name that's been bandied about is Moto E; Motorola only promises a device "priced for all."

Sadly, though, anxious fans might want to temper their enthusiasm with regard to the Moto X+1 and the London event. The last time Moto spoke publicly about the handset, it advised that it would be the second half of the year before it shows up.
