Moto X (2017) leaks in render video, Moto Z-like design tipped

It seems Lenovo-owned Motorola is all set to freshen up its popular X series of smartphones. A new smartphone, which may well be the upcoming Moto X (2017) has leaked in a render video. Interestingly, it has a design strikingly similar to the Moto Z and Moto Z Play, launched earlier this year.
The video and accompanying images, exclusively leaked on Android Authority website by noted tipster @OnLeaks, reveal a lot more than just the design and display of the handset.
56273122As per the images leaked on the website, the rear panel of the smartphone has a slightly curved look. This means that the Moto X (2017) may not be compatible with the Moto Mods. Also, the moto branding at the rear (as in the case of the Z series) has been replaced by just the Motorola logo.
Along with this, the render video highlights two important features – a 3.5mm audio jack and a microUSB port.
Below the display, there is a ‘pill-shaped’ Home button with an embedded fingerprint scanner. The microSD card slot appears to have been shifted to the top edge of the device.
Chamfered edges are visible in the video as well. But as per the website, there’s apparently no 2.5D glass.
As for the camera, the large bump which characterizes Motorola’s latest set of smartphones in the Z series is still visible but appears to be a little larger. It can be inferred that the smartphone will have a large-capacity battery. In comparison, Moto Z and Moto Z Force have a thickness of about 5.2mm and 7mm respectively.
The upcoming smartphone may have a smaller 5.2-inch display as well.
As per the images, the handset doesn’t seem to have any dual-camera setup or stereo front-facing speakers. But according to Android Authority website, Lenovo may improve the audio quality in the Moto X (2017) quite a bit.
It can be expected that the smartphone may premiere at the upcoming CES 2017 event, to be held next week. However, nothing has been confirmed by the company as of yet.
