Motorola (Lenovo) didn’t release a Moto X this year, instead of giving the Moto Z, the 4th gen Moto G series, Moto E3 Power, and Moto M, regardless that there were persistent rumors of a Moto X 2016. Lower than 48 hours to the end of a year, leaks released by @OnLeaks, known for accurate leaks, showed a phone presupposed to be the Moto X (2017), together with a 360-degree video of it.
On first look, the Moto X (2017) doesn’t have the sqare Fingerprint sensor just like the Moto Z series and Moto G4 Plus, as a substitute now a pill-like design much like Samsung phones. It seems shorter and greater, maybe to go with the massive bezel it’s sitting on. The Moto X (2017) also sees the return of the audio jack on the bottom of the phone.
The Moto X (2017) shares some design features with the Moto Z, namely the rear camera and position of the front shooter and sensor. It doesn’t appear to have the connector pins of the Moto Z, which means it may use Moto Mods. The Moto X (2017) also doesn’t have a thin design at 9.2mm thick, together with the camera bump, in comparison with the 5.2mm Moto Z. The extra thickness could also be for a larger battery.
@OnLeaks says the Moto X will return features such because the beforehand mentioned audio jack and microSD card slot for storage expansion. The phone will also ditch the USB Type-C port and can use a micro USB port in its place. There’s no stereo front-facing audio system or dual cameras.
The Moto X (2017) could also be announced at next week’s CES or MWC in February. No additional details have been provided about the processor, RAM, ROM and camera configuration but, but when it’s going to be a flagship device instead of a watered-down Moto Z, the Snapdragon 821 SoC must be applicable for it
