IB Times reports that the videos posted by users on YouTube and the site TkTechNews uploaded short videos that both show 4K video recording as well as various other abilities.

As well as 4K recording the smartphone reportedly has the ability to quickly auto-focus whilst the device is constantly in motion and it can also zoom in and out quickly without losing any detail in the process.

Details on the Motorola Moto X+1 have been seeping out since early April when the first reports were that the successor would be unveiled soon. This was followed by an official placeholder cropping up on the Moto Maker website and since that news in May there has been little noise concerning the smartphone.

In terms of a device specification, it’s expected that it will have a 5.2in display with a 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution that allows it to have a 423ppi pixel density. Under the hood it’s rumoured there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

Motorola’s Moto X smartphone was a late arrival in the UK as it eventually arrived on 1 February, six months to the day after it was launched by the firm at an event in the heart of New York City. It has a 4.7in 720p display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset clocked at 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 GPU.

In the camera-department the Moto X has a 10-megapixel lens and it was one of the only smartphones released by Motorola whilst it was a part of Google. It’s expected that the Moto X+1’s arrival will be imminent and all the details will be confirmed right here on ITProPortal.com once it is are released.
