The upcoming Moto X (2017) design reminds one of the recently launched Moto G5 Plus, and it is seen sporting an all-metal body. At the rear of the device are the antenna bands, dual-camera setup, and the Moto logo below it.

Moto X (2017) features, specifications

Based on what has been leaked so far, the Moto X (2017) seems to be a mid-range device, and in fact, it is quite similar to the Moto Z Play. The upcoming smartphone is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, but the leaks don t really give any idea on its resolution.

The Moto X (2017) will run on Android Nougat OS out-of-the-box, and it is rumored to be powered by Qualcomm s capable Snapdragon 625 SoC. This chipset is seen powering some popular smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 among others. The leaked variant comes with 32GB storage with 3GB RAM. However, there might be other variants in the making. ALSO READ: Moto G5 to launch in India soon; here s everything we know so far

The dual-camera setup is the highlight of Moto X (2017). The resolution is unknown. Below the camera is the dual-LED flash. Not only the rear end camera but the front cam too comes with LED flash for selfies. Dual rear cameras are only what set the device apart from Moto Z Play.

Looking at these leaked specifications, Motorola seems to be demoting the Moto X lineup from the flagship position. That crown will be retained by the Moto Z lineup, which also boast modular functionalities. There s currently no word on when Motorola plans to launch this new smartphone, considering it only recently launched the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus at MWC 2017. DON’T MISS: Moto G5 Plus Review
