The Moto X (2017) poses once again for a picture

It was just a few days ago when we showed you pictures alleged to show off the Moto X (2017). Today, a new picture of the device showed up in weibo looking very much like the phone we showed you the other day. Note the dimpled Motorola Batwing logo on the back of the handset. No longer the flagship phone it was when first launched in 2014, the Moto X (2017) is rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU. 3GB of RAM is said to be inside along with 32GB of native storage.

One interesting thing about the Moto X (2017) is that it apparently will feature a dual camera setup on back. That is, if the image that accompanies this story is real. Since the photos of the Moto X (2017) we've shown you the last few days have not been verified, we suggest that you take these images with the proverbial grain of salt.

A Motorola/Lenovo road map we told you about last November included a Moto X (2017), so there is certainly reason to believe that such a model will be coming. Whether it will look like the phone in the picture accompanying this story is another matter entirely.

Thanks for sending this in!

Not a looker at all. Moto Mods are useful for an extremely select few ppl . 90% of the general users dont use Moto Mods. Its pricing is gonna be upwards of 650$. I honestly see no reason for anyone to buy Moto over an S8

Ugh, I'm starting to think that the Moto X Pure Edition is the last of its kind.

Every dual camera is ugly. They must figure out how to set up a dual camera in a single module. By flipping a lens maybe??

The camera bump/hump sticking out on the Apple one just reminds me of the lady on Uncle Buck with the mole.

Loose that camera ring. Not long ago Moto X was flagship it's just another midrange device. Way to go Lenovo.

Besides been ugly and crappy looking, I don't understand Lenovo-Motorola choice of hardware. They didn't have to got with the latest Snapdragon 835 but at least get something much better than the two year old device you are replacing. The Snapdragon 625 chipset is as good as my Moto X 2015 808 Snapdragon chipset. Why would anyone get the Moto X 2017, when I could just grab the Moto G5 Plus with the same Snapdragon 625 chipset for a lot less. I was waiting for Lenovo-Motorola to woo me but when you look at LG G6, Huawei P10, HTC 11, etc,...I don't think I can get another Moto X device. And I not even getting into the lack of communication from Lenovo about Android Nougat. Even my little niece HTC One A9 got Nougat more than two months ago.

How in the hell do you go from a really‚Äč nice looking phone like the 2015 Moto x pure to this. I'm still loving my Moto x but I guess it'll be the last one for me.

I didn't think the pure was nice looking either. In fact, I prefer Lenovo designs.

congrats on downgrading MotoX class... with all those specs they should sell it for under $350 (and hope they keep front-facing stereo speaker, and nice camera like all older motoX) SD625 is too weak for motoX, since motoX always fill upper midrange all this time.. it's weaker than SD650 or even helioX20, they should use SD821 or wait for SD660.. and battle with other $500-$650 smartphone (not with it's own moto G with similar specs, lol)

Motorola makes some ugly phones, which is a shame because they made the best looking dumb phones. Not sure what happened....
