The Lenovo-owned Motorola has plans to launch a new Moto X in 2017, if a series of leaks is any indicator.
Android Authority and @OnLeaks have published factory CAD-based renders and video of what is being called the “Moto X (2017).” The official name of the handset isn’t known yet, so this device may launch as something other than “Moto X (2017).”
The Moto X (2017) boasts a similar design to the Moto Z, which launched this year, but there are a few key differences. First, the new Moto X will boast a thicker frame at 150 x 73.8 x 8.4 mm (9.5 mm with camera bump). To compare, the Moto Z is only 5.2mm thin, and the Moto Z Force is 7mm thin.
The Moto X (2017) will apparently also feature a 5.2-inch display and a microUSB port, and not USB Type-C. It will also boast a 3.5mm headphone jack for good measure.
The report also expects that the new Moto X will be a mid-range handset, with Lenovo keeping the Moto Z lineup the flagship range.
What do you think of the renders?
