The Motorola Moto X smartphone was last seen in 2015. At that time, it had arrived with flagship specifications. In 2016, there was no Moto X smartphone, but Lenovo had introduced the Moto Z line of smartphones that carries support for Moto Mods modular accessories. There were speculations that the Moto Z series had replaced the Moto X lineup. Now, four leaked photos of an alleged Moto X  (2017) smartphone with model number XT1801 revealed by known leakster, +HelloMotoHK on Google+  suggest that we may see a new Moto X phone this year. However, the leakster’s post is no longer accessible.

The alleged Moto X (2017) prototype seen in leaked images has a curved metallic chassis and appears like Moto G5. The front side features a 5.5-inch display and below it is an oblong Home button featuring a fingerprint reader like the one found on Moto G5 / Moto G5 Plus smartphones.

There is no information available on its display resolution, but it is likely to come with support for full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The selfie camera seems to be accompanied with a LED flash.

The back panel shows the presence of antennae lines at the top and bottom. The circular camera module present on the purported Moto X (2017) is also similar to the camera housing on Moto G5 phones. However, one of the leaked images suggest that the smartphone features a dual rear camera that is coupled with a dual-tone flash below it.

The distinctive “batwing” logo can be seen below the camera module. The rear does not feature the pins for attaching Moto Mods accessories. As far as specs are concerned, the alleged Moto X (2017) is driven by Snapdragon 625 SoC which reveals that it will be a mid-range phone. The SoC is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and the native storage of the device is 32 GB.

There is no information available on the release date of Moto X (2017). More information on the new Moto X is expected to surface in the near future.
