Moto X leaked image hints at metal body, Bigger camera


The attention of the world is focused on the Moto G4, which will be launched on May 17, but the Moto X is not too far behind. The flagship Motorola phone is likely to arrive on June 9 and some of its spy shots have started appearing on the web. One of the leaked images on a Chinese website hints that the new Moto X for 2016 will be the first Moto phone with a metal body.

Although, it may not have the uni body design. The images hints that it will have plastic covers on the top and bottom, similar to what we see on a few other Android phones, to make sure that there is no metal interference with the cellular or data signals.

The leaked image hints at a slight redesign. The phone seems to have rounder curves, thinner bezels and a redesigned camera module topped with a very large glass cover. The dual-flash seems to be under the glass cover. Also, it doesn’t look like that there is a fingerprint scanner on the back. The upcoming Moto G4 will have the scanner on the front and it is possible that Moto X 2016 too will have it somewhere under the screen.

For now not much is known about the hardware inside the Moto X 2016. But it is safe to say that it will have top of the line processor (possibly Qualcomm Snapdragon 820). It is also possible that the Moto X 2016 may debut at a relatively higher prices. Lenovo, which owns Motorola, is restructuring its phone business this year. The company is positioning the Vibe phones, which are sold under Lenovo brand, as mainstream phones while the Moto phones have been deemed more premium.
