American technology major, Motorola's upcoming Moto X successor's name and price has reportedly been revealed by the company itself.

The company's US website accidently showed a device titled Moto X+1 with AT&T carrier brand with a $400 price-tag, but on a closer look, the smartphone looks identical to 2013 model Moto X.

While it is not known if the American company's faux pas was just a slip-up or an intentional gimmick, it has certainly gained traction in the media. Even Google did a similar stunt, by showing-off LG Nexus 5 at Play store before its official launch on 1 November.

The page depicting Moto X+1 was taken down from the website soon after the report went wild online, but technology website, Droid Life managed to take a screen shot of the web-page. [To view the snapshot, click here].

Last month, Moto X+1 key specification got leaked online via GFX benchmarking website. The phone is expected to ship with bigger 5.2-inch full HD (1920x1080p) screen, Snapdragon 800 (Krait-ARMv7) series CPU, Adreno 330 graphics engine, 2GB RAM, 32GB (24 GB available), 12-megapixel camera and a 2.0-megapixel front camera.

Moto X+1 is expected to debut this summer, around early August, so that predecessor gets enough time to complete the one-year cycle, but multiple reports twirling on the internet also suggest that the Moto X successor might launch along with smartwatch Moto 360 around June end during Google I/O 2014.
