The Moto X (2017) has not been averse to the rumor mills, and we have already come across alleged leaked images of the yet-to-be-launched smartphone.

The 3D renders hint at a design that is very similar to the Moto Z, which falls in line with previous leaks, AndroidAuthority reports. One big difference though is that the upcoming Moto X (2017) is much thicker than the Moto Z. It is said to feature dimensions of 150×73.8×8.4mm, while the Moto Z in comparison features dimensions of 153.3×75.3×5.2mm. Another big difference is the absence of 16-pin magnetic port. In other words, this means that the upcoming Moto X (2017) won t boast modular capabilities. Also Read - Amazon Grand Gaming Days sale: Best deals on gaming laptops, accessories, and more
The renders also hint at two features that were missing on the Moto Z — 3.5mm audio jack and microUSB port. While the presence of an audio jack is somewhat understandable, it is a bit surprising that Motorola-Lenovo won t be opting for the newer USB Type-C port. Then again, these are just rumors, and things are highly likely to chance before the final launch. Up front, the Moto X (2017) is also missing 2.5D curved glass, and the square-shaped home button on the Moto Z seems to be getting replaced by a pill-shaped button. This physical button will no doubt have a fingerprint sensor embedded.
Not a lot is known about the upcoming smartphone s specifications and features. Reports, however, claim that the Moto X (2017) will have a smaller footprint, with a display measuring at 5.2-inches. It is also unclear if next year s smartphone will indeed be called Moto X. Recently, leakster Evan Blass claimed that Motorola Mobility and Lenovo were planning on replacing the Moto X series with a brand new Moto Z family. With no official announcement, we would advise you take all this with the proverbial pinch of salt.
