@evleaks gives us one last "leak"

Notorious devices leaker Evan Blass stated that he was going to retire due to financial and health reasons, but it looks as though he isn’t quite ready to hang up his hat just yet. Today, Blass — via his @evleaks Twitter account — leaked some press renders of the upcoming Moto X+1 ahead of its early September launch.
 
The images show a Verizon Wireless-branded device in both black and white with a wood grain back cover.



 
There were no confirmed specs included with the press renders, but the Moto X+1 is rumored to include a 5.2” 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage.
 
In other smartphone news, we’ve been shown the additional schematics of the 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone 6 (a single image showing the protruding camera of the 5.5” iPhone 6 was shown earlier this week, but was incorrectly attributed to the 4.7” model). The images were taken from computers running in Foxconn’s smartphone factory.

 
The leaked images show that the 4.7” model measures 5.4” long and 2.6” wide, while having a thickness of 6.9mm. The 5.5” model measures 6.2” long and 3” wide, with a thickness of 7.1mm. On the 4.7” iPhone 6, the camera ring protrudes out from the body by 0.77mm, while it protrudes just 0.67mm on the 5.5” iPhone 6.

 
In a separate report on the new iPhone, Reuters indicates that Apple is making some last minute adjustments to the display panel due to issues with the backlight. The report notes:
 
Apple, aiming for the thinnest phone possible, initially wanted to cut back to a single layer of backlight film, instead of the standard two layers, for the 4.7-inch screen, which went into mass production ahead of the 5.5-inch version.
 
But the new configuration was not bright enough and the backlight was sent back to the drawing board to fit in the extra layer, costing precious time and temporarily idling some screen assembly operations, the source said.
 
Reuters went on to state that suppliers are now working in overdrive mode to make up for lost time during the backlight snafu.
 
The iPhone 6 is scheduled to be unveiled on September 9.
