Last year, Motorola revived its Moto X lineup of smartphones. Now, it has been confirmed that the series is here to stay. Apparently, the successor of Moto X4 is already in works and has been named as Moto X5.
The reliable leaker Evan Blass has tweeted an image of the Moto X5 smartphone branding, which is very similar to that of Moto X4. While Evan Blass has not revealed any more information regarding this, we expect more details will now follow.
We are expecting that the Moto X4 successor will come with some subtle improvements such as an updated camera sensors, new processors, and possibly a bump in RAM or storage.
Considering that the Lenovo-owned Motorola’s Moto X4 was introduced in August and released in October, we expect the company to follow a similar schedule for the Moto X5 as well. However, there is a possibility that we could see an early announcement of the phone, before the end of the Summer of 2018.
Recently, Evan Blass suggested that the 6th generation of Moto G smartphone will see the return of the Google Play Edition variant. Along with that, the company’s cheapest smartphone series — the Moto E series will also get a Play variant for the first time.
The information regarding the Moto X5 comes just a couple of months after the Moto X4’s rollout. The Moto X4 is available in the US in three variants — Android One variant with Project Fi, Unlocked variant and Amazon Prime Exclusive variant.
The Moto X4 features a 5.2-inch LTPS IPS LCD screen with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a layer of Gorilla Glass 4 on top. Under the hood, it is powered by a Snapdragon 630 chipset with 3GB/4GB RAM. The 3GB RAM model comes with 32GB storage while the 4GB RAM packs 64GB of internal storage.
It has dual camera setup at the back, with a 12-megapixel lens with f/2.0 aperture and an 8-megapixel secondary lens with f/2.2 aperture. The lenses are coupled with features like phase detection autofocus, 4K video shooting and dual-LED flash.
The smartphone comes with Android 7.1 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box and comes with Google Assistant as well as supports Amazon Alexa. It is powered by a 3,000mAh battery which can be fast charged using Motorola’s Turbo Charging technology.
