Moto X (2017) might have been leaked by Moto on this video celebrating 44 years of mobile calls

Over the last few days, we have shown you a few images allegedly revealing the Motorola Moto X (2017). But now, we might have just seen the phone straight from the horse's mouth. Moto USA has uploaded a video to YouTube that celebrates 44-years of mobile phone calls with an original rap song. A few seconds into the video, we can see the front and the back of a phone that resembles the Moto G5 a bit, but the look of the antenna lines on back resemble the Moto X (2017) leaks a bit more. The camera, on the other hand, doesn't totally look like the rear-facing dual snapper that appeared on the recent leaks.

The Moto X (2017) is rumored to carry a Snapdragon 625 SoC under the hood, with 3GB/4GB of RAM inside. Native storage options are 32GB/64GB, and a 13MP camera adorns the back. If there is a dual-camera setup on the rear of the phone, it isn't clear if the second shooter also weighs in at 13MP.

Besides the Moto X (2017), there is another unknown handset on the video. The back of this model is shown in white and it carries what appears to be a rear facing speaker. Could this be the model that reportedly has the nickname "Albus?" That phone is said to match the Moto Z Play in specs, but is endowed with a 12MP rear-facing camera.

Check out the video at the top of the page. Not only will you see what appears to be some unannounced phones like the Moto X (2017), you will also get to see a number of handsets representing Motorola's long and illustrious history in the field of mobile handsets. Click on the slideshow for a couple of screenshots from the video.

Ugly af. Why cant moto just make one gorgeous high-end flagship smartphone? And no, the moto x 13, 14, 15 were as butt average looking at best. When i say a gorgeous phone, i'm talking the iphone 7, htc m8, iphone 4, iphone 5, gs8, gs7e, note 7.

I would add a Sony Xperia to the gorgeous phone list.

Seems like The G6 and GS8 really ruined a lot of upcoming phones. Moto's only hope is that the G6 and GS8 break when you sneeze at them. Unfortunately the G6 seems to be a tank so far even with no bezels so that bodes well for the S8 as well. Motorola use to own the looks with the Razr phones and even the startac, despite being slightly feminine, were the best looking dumb phones. Did their old designer quit or something?
