The new Moto X for 2017 has been pictured ahead of its official debut. The handset appears to carry a dual-lens camera like that found on the iPhone 7 Plus and the LG G6, but its specifications reveal there will be no high-end Snapdragon 835 processor.
Supposed images of the 2017 Moto X first surfaced back in December, but the handset contained in these images looks a lot different. It sports an aluminum unibody with integrated antenna bands similar to those used by Apple and HTC, and its rear-facing camera setup clearly contains two lenses above a dual-tone LED flash.
The device, which has the “XT1801” model number, carriers a more rounded home button like that on the new Moto G5, and there’s “Moto” branding beneath its front speaker. A picture of its internal specifications reveals the device will pack a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The screen is believed to be a 1080p panel measuring 5.5 inches.
It’s not quite the high-end flagship some Motorola fans will have been hoping for, then, but we must bear in mind that until the new Moto X is confirmed, these specifications could well change. It’s entirely possible that this is a prototype device and that there are others out there with completely different internals.
There’s no word on when we might get an official announcement from Motorola, so all we can do for now is wait for more information.
