The Moto X 2017 is shaping to be quite a premium mid-range smartphone if a presentation leak of the new handset coming from China is to be gone by. When Lenovo — the company that now owns Motorola — launched the Moto Z and Moto Z Play last year, speculations were rife whether or not it meant the killing of the Moto X line-up. Since then, the Moto X 2017 has been subject to numerous leaks and rumours, but, the latest leak gives the first unadulterated look at Lenovo’s upcoming phone.
As per the leaked presentation, the Moto X 2017 is seen honing a premium all-glass and metal body design. The home button housing the fingerprint scanner is preferably at the front, although, the slides don’t give a clear view of it. It isn’t located on the back, at least, that’s confirmed. The power button and the volume rocker meanwhile are located on the right. It isn’t also clear whether the Moto X 2017 would ditch the 3.5mm jack like the Moto Z.
On the back, the Moto X 2017 is seen carrying a dual camera system with a dual-LED flash. It will also reportedly come with laser auto-focus.
The Moto X 2017, is further, said to come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. It will reportedly come with a 5.5-inch screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of memory under the hood. It will reportedly be backed by a 3,800mAh battery with support for Moto’s proprietary TurboCharging technology. Another thing to note about the Moto X 2017, as per the leak, is AI integration which leaves behind a lot of questions. Is Lenovo — Moto — bringing its own version of a virtual assistant or it would come with Google’s Assistant built in. While it is pretty obvious that the phone would have Google Assistant, whether or not, it would have its own take on AI is yet to be seen.
