Lenovo-owned Motorola last year scrapped its Moto X series smartphones in favor of the all new modular Moto Z series handsets. But, guess what? The company is reportedly bringing back the Moto X series.
Currently being referred to as the Moto X (2017), the smartphone has already been subjected to lots of leaks in the recent past. And today, there’s another leak in the form of an image render revealing (wait for it) a dual camera setup at the back. Yes, that’s right. The Moto X (2017) will reportedly sport a dual camera lens on the rear.
If these leaks are legit, one of the two sensors at the back will at least sport a 13-megapixel unit. The leak also suggests that the handset comes with model number XT-180x and is codenamed “Sanders.”
Regarding specs, the Moto X (2017) will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset teamed with Adreno 506 GPU. It will pack either 3GB/4GB of RAM long with either 32GB/64GB of onboard storage respectively.
Looking at the above specs, it’s clear that the smartphone will be a mid-ranger with extra focus on the imaging department. Also, when the smartphone is made official, the company will have three mid-range devices with the Snapdragon 625 chipset powering all of them. But, each catering to different requirements of the masses. Now, each device (the Moto G5 Plus, Moto Z Play, and the Moto X 2017) is unique in its own way, but again that’s too many options which means, extra confusion while deciding which one to buy, isn’t it?
Anyway, there’s another leak indicating that a different smartphone codenamed “Albus” has also popped online. The smartphone, except for the 12-megapixel camera on the back, sports similar specs as the Moto X (2017). Perhaps, it’s a watered down version of the upcoming X variant.
The Moto X (2017) has been in the news for a while now and considering that the rumors are picking up the pace, we can expect the company to launch the smartphone shortly.
