Another day, another round of Moto X+1 information. Today, everything has to do with the hardware of the device. The image above shows the Moto X+1 in white. In the four corners of the front, there seem to be sensors. According to TK Tech News, who has been following the upcoming Motorola device closely, they have to do with Moto Aware. The idea behind the sensors right now is that they will help the Moto X+1 communicate effectively with the Moto 360 in some way rather than just pairing with a Bluetooth connection.

samsung_galaxy_note_4_encased_box

There was a video that surfaced recently allegedly showing the Galaxy Note 4 within a dummy box. The only part of the device actually exposed was the display. Now, an image showing something similar has appeared. Again, the massive Samsung device is encased in some sort of box. A screenshot from the About device menu reveals that it is running Android 4.4.4, the latest version of the operating system.

The only other thing worth noting is that the home button looks taller. This could be what allows the new fingerprint technology to be present in the Galaxy Note 4.
