Despite numerous reports about the Moto X series being discontinued in favour of the Moto Z series, Lenovo in June said that the Moto X series is “alive and well”. Now, a series of leaked images claimed to be of the Moto X (2017) is doing the rounds of the rumour mills, though some reports are tipping it may be a new Moto Z series handset.
The leaked Moto X (2017) images, posted by Slashleaks, show the smartphone with a metal body, and a round camera panel that seems quite similar to that on Moto Z. Interestingly, the Moto X (2017) in the leaked images does not have any pins at the bottom-back, which can enable the support for Moto Mods. The Moto X (2017) smartphone bears a home button, which is thought to sport the fingerprint sensor.
Considering that Lenovo has already clarified earlier this year that its upcoming Moto Z flagship devices will come with support for attachable mods, it seems unlikely that the leaked smartphone in the leaked images is from Moto Z series.
Earlier this month, some other images of the alleged Moto X (2017) smartphone were leaked by techdroider, which also showcased a similar round camera panel at the back of the device. The Moto X (2017) leaked images by techdroider also lacked any pins for MotoMods support.
The Moto X (2017) smartphone is expected to be made available in Gold and Silver colour variants, as can be seen from the leaked images as well. However, other specifications about Moto X (2017) have still not been leaked. As it goes with every other leak, we will suggest you to take this one with a pinch of salt as well.
Lenovo’s Moto brand recently announced two new mods, that is, a 3000mAh Mophie Battery Pack and an Incipio Car Dock that allows charging and comes with a 3.5mm audio output.[“source-ndtv”]
