While our smartphone coverage is mostly consumed with high-end flagships, there are other (oft-ignored) segments in this space - like the cheaper tiers that Motorola has had some success in saturating. Look for them to arrive later this spring.
A press render leaks over the weekend which nearly confirms all the upcoming Motorola devices. Well, it appears this is Lenovo's new style of doing things, with the battery capacity joining the display screen size and camera as the main distinguishing features between the Moto E4 and E4 Plus. The presentation photo does not reveal much about the nine phones but it does give fans an idea on what the company might be planning to release in 2017.
From other leaks, there were seven more phones from Moto beginning with the model numbers XT which have received Wi-Fi certification from Wi-Fi Alliance as seen on the report from MobileXpose. Separately, press renders of Moto Z2 Force and Moto Z2 Play, have been leaked online as well. The Moto Z Force details next to the phone's image show the words ShatterShield, mods and 1GB LTE. The company will reportedly introduce two new devices under each series. It will come with a 5.2 inch Full HD display, curved edges and also a SmartCam.
The video is just 9 seconds long, but reveals that the 2017 Moto X will have a metal body with 3D glass, an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance, AI integration, always-on voice, 3x carrier aggregation and turbo charging technology. The smartphone comes in both single SIM and dual SIM option and features a 5MP rear camera with LED flash.
Depending on where you live, you'll get either 2 or 3GB of RAM, along with 16GB of expandable storage. The smartphone manufacturer is now working on launching a few more devices under the same price tag later this year. The next Moto X Smartphone is called Moto X4. The series will be a substitute for the currently-running Moto E series, but with better affordability.
The Moto E will have a Moto E and a bigger Moto E Plus. When it comes to mobile imaging, the Moto E4 boasts of an 8MP rear while the E4 Plus has 13 megapixels. But when they do launch, they're expected to cost 150 Euro ($165) and 190 Euro ($210) for the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus, respectively. This means that the smartphones are already in the making. In the United Kingdom, you'll be able to pick up the Moto C at Tesco, Carphone, and O2.
Moto C Plus has the same dimensions as Moto C due to the 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. Hence, these are all rumorus as of now, and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
