We have a very special set of news tonight. This report includes a Moto X+1 leak and a couple very unique charging solutions.
The Moto X+1 announcement is all but guaranteed to come during Motorola’s September 4th event. The Moto X+1 has been having a hard time staying hidden, so we expect even juicier leaks and rumors to show up in the coming weeks. Today’s leak is special, though.
First, it happens to be @evleaks “retirement gift” to us, giving it more sentimental value. It also happens to be the best image of the Moto X+1. It’s a high definition press render displaying the Moto X+1 in two designs. One is classic and black, while the second showcases a gorgeous wooden design.
Opinion: Before anything, we would like to remind you Evan Blass hasn’t completely left the industry. He is still in the industry and has joined our team as a writer!
Samsung has just announced what could be one of the most interesting chargers around. This USB cable splits into three microUSB heads, giving you the ability to charge three devices at once. Only problem is it won’t come cheap – it is priced at $39.99, an insane price to pay for a charger.
The charger comes with a 2-amp wall charger, but not always will devices charge quickly. The power is divided among connected gadgets. This means 2 devices will charge at 1-amp each, while 3 devices will charge at 667-milliamps. This may be a bit of a downer, but it’s a sacrifice we can understand.
Opinion: I just can’t justify paying $40 for a charger, but the convenience it offers is pretty unique. Will you be signing up?
Another interesting charging accessory I found today is the Qbracelet. This stylish bracelet will double as an external battery. The bracelet houses a 1,160 mAh batter, which is a good boost but it won’t be enough to charge your device fully.
It does only weigh 1.8 ounces and is very easy to carry around, though. It will be available in both microUSB and Apple Lightning options for $99.99, but you can pre-order it now for just $79.99.
Opinion: I love the look of this bracelet, but it looks just a bit too think. I worry it may not be very comfortable. Oh, and it seems to double as a kickstand!
