New Moto X (2017) Live Images Surface Online

Last month, alleged live images of the Moto X (2017) had been leaked online, showing a dual-camera setup at the back. A new set of live images have leaked on the web today, this time showing a different variant. While the previous leak showed the XT1801, the images leaked online today show the XT1805 variant.

The XT1801 variant, as the previous leak had revealed, will be equipped with 3GB of RAM. On the other hand, the XT1804 variant of the Moto X (2017) will be equipped with 4GB of RAM. Another key difference between the two variants would be the amount of storage onboard. We expect the XT1801 variant to feature 32GB of onboard storage while the XT1805 variant should include 64GB of internal memory. Both variants are likely to include a microSD card slot, so users will be able to expand the storage further by up to 256GB.

In terms of design, the latest images confirm that the Moto X (2017) will be very similar to the Moto G5 Plus. Prominent highlights on the front include an LED flash for taking selfies and a physical home button with a fingerprint scanner embedded inside it. At the back, the handset features a rather large camera layout with dual lenses and a dual-tone LED flash placed below them. Slightly below the rear camera lenses is the iconic Motorola batwing logo.

As leakster Roland Quandt had confirmed earlier this month, at least one of the two sensors at the back will be a 13MP unit. The smartphone is said to be codenamed “Sanders” and is going to be powered by the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 14nm octa-core SoC under the hood. While the Snapdragon 625 SoC is no doubt a capable SoC, we do think Motorola should have opted for a newer SoC as the Moto X (2017) might end up feeling underpowered when compared to rivals powered by newer Snapdragon 600-series chipsets. Unfortunately, there is still no word on when the Moto X (2017) will be officially announced.
