We have seen a lot of changes occurring in the Moto devices since Motorola was acquired by the Chinese Electronic Corporation, Lenovo. The biggest change was observed in the design of the recently launched Moto smartphones, as all of the devices look somewhat like the Lenovo Vibe series of smartphones. The another thing we observed was the increase in a number of bloatware apps that come loaded on the Moto phones. There were a lot of rumours earlier this year that the company was thinking of replacing the Moto X series of smartphones with the Moto Z series of smartphones. Though sometime later it was confirmed by the company that the new Moto Z series of smartphones would come as a new series of smartphone that shall offer semi-modular specifications. Recently, the images were leaked for the highly anticipated “Moto X 2017” smartphone. So, let's walk through the leaked images and rumoured specs that shall come with the phone.
According to the leaked images online, we can easily deduce the phone to have a full metal body topped with superfluous bezels running on upper and lower part of the display. At first glance, one can say that the phone looks much similar to the recently launched Moto M. It is also believed that the phone shall come with a front facing fingerprint scanner. Looking at the images, it appears that the volume rocker and power buttons are provided on the right edge of the phone. Instead of keeping the antennas horizontal, it seems to be shifted to the top and bottom edges. The another thing that gathers much attention is the camera module, as the camera module protrudes from the body. It is believed that the camera module shall feature with the usual camera sensor and dual tone (dual LED) flashlight. It is also believed that the phone shall feature with a 5.5 inch full-HD IPS LCD capacitive display that would provide a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The FHD display shall prove to be a real stunner, as the Moto phones never disappoint in terms of display. We believe that the display shall get bright enough and should provide fantastic sunlight legibility.
According to the online rumours, the phone is expected to feature a Quad-core (2.15 GHz, Dual core, Kryo + 1.59 GHz, Dual core, Kryo) processor that would be backed by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chipset. The Qualcomm processor would be powerful enough to play all kinds of videos and games without any issues. The rumoured Adreno 530 GPU will make sure that graphic intensive 3D games shall be played without any lag or stutter. The phone is expected to run on Android platform, and we hope it would feature with latest Android version 7.0 i.e. Nougat. The phone is expected to come with internal storage of 32GB, and internal storage could be increased up to 128GB by its users. The phone is expected to come with 4GB of RAM, which we think would be more than enough to play all kinds of apps. The phone shall support dual SIM and would definitely support 4G/LTE networks.
It has been rumoured that the phone shall feature a 21MP rear camera that shall be backed by phase detection autofocus and dual tone (dual LED) flashlight. The camera features would include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. Shooting modes should include Continuous Shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). The camera would do HD video recording. The front shooter is believed to be provided with a 5MP camera. We believe that the camera quality of this phone shall be fantastic and the camera would be able to take some highly detailed images. A loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm jack with active noise cancellation and a dedicated mic is also expected to be provided with the phone.
It is believed that the phone shall feature with a 4000 mAh Li-Ion non-user replaceable battery. It is rumoured that the battery would support quick charging. Talking about connectivity options, the phone is expected to feature with Wi-Fi 802.11, a/ac/b/g/n/n 5GHz, Wi-Fi Direct, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.2, A-GPS, GLONASS, NFC and microUSB 2.0. The other sensors that are expected in the phone are the Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Compass and Accelerometer.
