Last year Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled Moto Z lineup which is well appreciated by customers across the globe. At that time, rumors start swirling that the company might not unveil a new Moto X device and the X-lineup might become part of the history. However, it seems like this trend is going to be changed pretty soon because a new Moto X branded device appeared online.
The Moto X 2017 rumors are not new at all, we are hearing rumors from November 2016 but so far nothing concrete appears online. Today we have a new set of images appeared online revealing that upcoming Moto X has dual camera setup. These images clearly indicate Motorola took inspiration from the G5 lineup for designing of this product. It has curved edges.
Surprisingly, it doesn't have latest USB Type-C port but instead, the company relied on Micro-USB to reduce its price tag. It is featuring the 3.5mm headphone jack for audio output. From what we know so far about hardware specs, the device won't have flagship status.
The Moto X 2017 is expected to have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 SoC on board with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. There are rumors that device could be unveiled with 4GB RAM as well with 64GB storage. It looks more sort of mid-ranger Moto G5 Plus. As far as release is a concern, it is still in the dark when this device will be released. The images give a good idea about the production status of the device, so we can expect this device pretty soon.
