Video of Moto X (2017) presentation reveals dual camera, IP68 certification rating and more

6


We've seen various leaks of the Motorola Moto X (2017), and today's leak might be the best one yet. The unannounced handset was the subject of an official presentation, and while a video played on a front screen promoting the specs and features of the phone, someone was in the back recording the presentation on the sly. The Moto X was the flagship series for Motorola until last year's Moto Z handsets took over.

According to the presentation, the Moto X (2017) is equipped with a 5.5-inch display. The newly announced Snapdragon 660 chipset is under the hood carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 512 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside. The video presentation mentions a smart camera and AI integration. We wonder if the latter has to do with Amazon's Alexa AI assistant, which is reportedly going to be available as a native feature on some Moto handsets this year. And the smart camera could be referring to the dual-camera setup which is seen on the rear of the phone.

Instead of the usual P2i nanocoating that protects Motorola handsets from spills and light rain, the Moto X (2017) will feature an IP68 certification rating. That means that the phone can be submerged as deep as nearly 5-feet for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. A 3800mAh battery is powering the phone with support for Turbo Charging.

The video was reportedly taken inside a Lenovo conference room, and the existence of the presentation would indicate that the phone's unveiling is imminent. Check out the video which you'll find at the top of this story.
