Moto X 2017: Looks Like G5; Adequate Performance But Could Improve More

This year is definitely the year of latest mobile technology innovation. Smartphones from different manufacturers clamor to be the best of the best. The Moto X 2017 is one player eager to be the best of its kind, but will it be successful in taking home the title?

The Moto X 2017 is not as high-end as the Moto Z and is more expensive compared to Moto G. There were three different versions of it back in 2015 but has never forged ahead. Two years later, it seems that there is no stopping the company in coming up with their latest mobile device offering.

Interesting enough, significant changes may come its way as Lenovo is now the new parent company responsible for most decisions. With this, industry experts question its capability of being able to deliver in spite of this. For one, Lenovo is geared towards changing the phone's look making it more mainstream and glass. This is significantly different from other devices Motorola released in the past.

Having dual camera is definitely all the range now and the Moto X 2017 is one to join the bandwagon. Various leaked images show the phone with two separate lenses built into protruding camera module.

Unfortunately, this upcoming device is reported to be a little lagging in terms of performance delivery. This mid-tier phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and 3GB of RAM. Its 32GB of storage is considered basic and there's no Moto Mod support. From the leaked images of the Moto X 2017, there are no pins for the Moto Mods.

The Moto X 2017 which is rumored to have Sanders as its code name has also been making industry experts a little confused and baffled. From a certain video released, the speaker grille happens to be at the rear of the phone which is different from leaked images which recently surfaced. At the end of the day, nothing has been made official yet so several versions are sure to come out leading to its official launch.
