Although many people believed that no other Moto X would ever be manufactured, Lenovo might still have an ace up its sleeve. More precisely, this smartphone might come in a new variant next year.
The Moto X 2017 looks similar to the Moto Z, but it will be a mid-ranged device. According to the Lenovo officials, there will be much to like about the future Moto X as this model will have many interesting features, while it will also be affordable.
What we know about this device is that it retains the full metal frame. In addition, it has a fingerprint sensor for added security. It is worth mentioning that Moto Z has this feature as well. Furthermore, the rear and front shooters are expected to be similar to the ones in the Moto Z. Also, the rear camera has a dual-LED flash.
Regarding other aspects, this device is expected to come with decent specs, but it won’t surpass the Moto Z. The company hasn’t announced the date when this smartphone will be launched, but analysts believe that it will take several months from now.
The Moto X 2017 will be powered by a battery of at least 3,000 mAh, while it will also have minimum 16GB of built-in internal storage. Lenovo will most likely enhance this smartphone with a quad-core or octa-core processor.
For a quick charge and data transfer, this model is expected to come with a 3.0 USB port. Besides the rumors about the Moto X, Lenovo seems to take its time with the Moto 360 smartwatch.
The tracker will be released next year, based on the recent reports. According to Shakil Barkat, Lenovo’s head of global product development, this smartwatch is not the company’s top priority, meaning that the Lenovo officials are not interested in building on it every year.
Barat further adds that the wearables market will become more important for the company, even if Lenovo decided to delay enhancing its smartwatches with the new Android Wear 2.0 software.
Barat believes that producing smartwatches won’t bring the company too much profit because the market can be deceiving. According to the statistics, the number of shipped units dropped off 52 percent every year. Therefore, Lenovo is focusing on the development of the Moto X 2016 and other devices expected to be more successful.
