Over the past months, there have been a lot of rumors about the new Motorola Moto X, which once was the manufacturer’s flagship. However, the latter is about to change, since this position is now taken by the Moto Z. But hey, this doesn’t mean that X will be gone!
Is it the real deal?
We had our reasons to believe that Motorola was planning to ditch this specific handset, but now we know that it won’t happen, since a video presenting a render of the phone, based on factory drawings, made the rounds online.
As you can see, the Motorola Moto X (2017) will feature a metallic body, with a pretty big camera bump on the back, borrowed from the Moto Z. Also, we can notice that the magnetic pins on the back are gone, meaning that it’s not going to offer support for Moto Mods, says GSM Arena.
The front of the phone reveals the fingerprint scanner and we can also spot a 3.5mm audio jack, a feature the Moto Z is lacking. Thank God, Motorola hasn’t totally lost its minds!
Unfortunately, there aren’t any stereo speakers, nor a dual camera setup, but this doesn’t come as a surprise, since the Moto X (2017) will be introduced as a mid-range smartphone.
The specs? Not a clue about them…
Spec-wise, it remains a mystery. Except the fact that it’s going to rock a 5.2″ display, we don’t know anything else about this smartphone. We could start guessing a few of the features, like a full HD resolution, but again, the trail is pretty cold from this point of view.
Finally, the launch date is also unknown, but we’re looking forward to CES and MWX 2017, two of the events where the Motorola Moto X (2017) could make its official debut.
