May 15, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Lenovo-owned Motorola had put its interests for Z branding above the X branding, resulting in the absence a Moto X device for quite a time. But year 2017 is likely to witness the return of a Moto X device, according to new leaks and reports.

The latest info comes from homeland China, and accordingly, Motorola will be launching a new Moto X device this year that will come with curved screens and massive display. A briefing video was also leaked that shows the company presenting its new phone, giving us short glimpses of what to expect.

Additionally, the report claims that Moto X will feature a 5.5-inch display with curved 3D glasses atop it. Under the hood will be a Snapdragon 660 CPU that will be paired with a RAM of 4GB. There will also be an in-built storage of 64 GB that can presumably be expanded to 128GB via external cards.

The big deal however is the battery, which packs a massive capacity of 3800 mAh. This combined with the power efficiency of the SD 660 SoC should offer an impressive battery life without having the overall performance compromised.

The video also shows dual-camera setup on its rear-side along with front-facing fingerprint sensor. With a metallic design, the new Moto X will also be having IP68 water/dust resistant features if the reports are to be believed.

There is no word on when the device will be unwrapped officially. But going by the rumors, we can soon expect an official announcement.
