If the Moto XT1650 turns out to be the Moto Z (2017), then it would join growing list of smartphones with Qualcomm s Snapdragon 835 chipset this year.

While there is no confirmation on whether this could be the Moto Z (2017) or a different Motorola smartphone, the former is expected to come with modular functionality.

With more development in the future, the Moto Z (2017) could come with 6GB of RAM which is currently becoming the trend with smartphones. The alleged Moto Z (2017) although, shown to come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, its predecessor already runs on Android 7.0 Nougat.

As for the rest of the specifications, the Moto Z features a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. The Moto Z comes with 64GB onboard storage which is further expandable up to 2TB via a microSD card.
