Motorola’s smartphone plans for the year ahead have been leaked in a presentation slide on Evan Blass’ Twitter account, and it appears there are five phone ranges on their way, including a Moto X. Blass has also tweeted an image showing Moto X4, which all but confirms the official name of the new phone.
The presentation slide shows two Moto Z flagship phones: Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force, a solo Moto X model, the two Moto G phones: G5 and G5 Plus, a Moto E and Moto E Plus and an entry-level C-series comprising a Moto C and Moto C Plus.
The Moto X is the interesting model, as it fits into a very narrow gap between the Moto G mid-range series and Moto Z flagships. We’ve heard rumours surrounding a Moto X handset before, dating back to December 2016, but these turned out to be the Moto G mid0range series instead.
Back in December an image leaked that was purported to be of the next-gen Moto X. It didn’t look very credible, being outed so far in advance of the phone’s unveiling, but a subsequent leak from just a few hours ago has confirmed the design of the next Moto flagship, which will come with a full metal jacket.
Now a new report comes to shed some light on the specs. First off, consider this – the phones depicted in the renders you can see here aren’t the same handset in two different color versions.
There may still be pretty much a full month to wait until Black Friday, but Amazon has decided to kick start the shopping discounts with its “countdown to Black Friday” sale, which has gone live today. It’s a little bizarre, I know.
As we covered earlier, the Moto X (2014) is in there for just $199.99, and there are plenty of other gadgets up for grabs. Including a digital infra-red thermometer, up to $200 off digital cameras, and 40 percent of 4K LG TVs. Here’s a list of some of the other deals on offer, according to Amazon.
Following on from the excellent second-generation Moto X are not one but two phones: the Moto X Style and Moto X Play. Here are all the release date, price and specs details you need for the Moto X Play and Moto X Style.
The leaks prior to the launch at the end of the July were almost right – they even pointed to multiple phones. Of course, there are plenty of other new phones to be excited about but although it has never enjoyed the popularity of flagship phones from other manufacturers, we’ve always like the Moto X. It was the first phone that allowed you to customize it before buying, and was extremely well built. It never had a micro SD slot, but now it does!
