Again, there's not much to look at – the phone looks like the Moto G5 Plus, so design won't be a "wow-factor." Curiously, the leaked photos show a microUSB port, rather than the USB Type C connector that's becoming commonplace. There's also a 3.5mm audio jack, so Motorola is staying away from the crowd a little bit.
The Moto X (2017) is said to run the Snapdragon 625 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage in the base model. Our guess is Motorola wants this to be an upper mid-range phone for those looking after something with a bit more 'oomph' than the Moto G5 Plus. There are no guesses as to when the new Moto X will be released. But with the phone in such advanced stage of development, it shouldn't be too far ahead.
