The Moto X, Motorola's former flagship, has been under the radar for more than a year. The last time the Moto X family of devices were released, it was 2015. Last year, Lenovo, which acquired the Motorola brand, opted to dedicate its efforts on the Moto Z family of devices instead. If a new set of leaks is to be believed, however, the Moto X would be making a return this 2017, but not in the way that most of its fans would think.
According to a report from Android Authority, a set of images from Gerry Yin show what appears to be the next-generation Moto X device. What was rather interesting was the fact that the smartphone in the pictures featured a number of surprising specs. Unlike the last Moto X of 2015, the Moto X of 2017 appears to be a midrange device.
Though the legitimacy of the leaks themselves could not be verified, the quality of the photos appears to show a Motorola smartphone that has not been released to the market yet. Overall, the smartphone in itself is compelling enough, as the device is clad in a brushed metal shell with antenna lines at the top and bottom. A dual-camera setup with flash is also prevalent at the back of the device, which is situated above Motorola's iconic batwing logo.
