The cat (or should I say cats) is officially out of the bag, this past weekend, an image showing Motorola’s 2017 lineup of phones.The leaked image, which came via a tip from Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) that shows a presentation slide that shows all the models that Motorola plans on releasing this year.
It seems, in addition to the Moto Z & G, the Moto X will be making a comeback with a dual-camera setup dubbed the SmartCam. The Moto E will be coming back as well with a 5-inch Moto E and 5.5-inch Moto E Plus (which will also have a massive 5,000 mAh battery).
The Moto C and C Plus (which as of writing this post, Motorola made official) have a 5-inch 480p and 5-inch 720p displays respectively. The Moto C will have a 4G option and a 2,350 mAh battery while the Moto C Plus has a 4,000 mAh battery and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
A leaked video at the same presentation show the Moto X for 2017 with a 5.2-inch FullHD display, Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage and a 3,800 mAh battery. It will also have a metal body, 3D glass, a “Smart Camera”, IP68 water and dust resistance, AI intergration, always-on voice, 3xCA (3x carrier aggregation) and Moto’s Turbo Charging.
Moto gS will have a 5.2-inch FullHD display with a full metal body (like the Moto G5) and the gS+ will have a 5.5-inch FullHD display and a dual-camera setup. The Moto Z Play for 2017, will be similar to last year’s with a 5.5-inch FullHD display and support for Moto Mods. The Moto Z Force (2017) will have the same ShatterShield display, support for Moto Mods, the latest Snapdragon flagship processor (most likely the 835 processor) and now with support of 1Gb LTE (presumably gigabit LTE).
What’s notable absent from this list, is the standard Moto Z but this could be because it may not be launching in the country that this presentation was taking place.
