If accurate, Motorola‘s 2018 lineup will pose like an iPhone X. Hint at some big changes to the Lenovo brand’s smartphone range. Here’s what Droid-Life has posted a trio of leaks which says everything for you and all. The moniker would be the Moto X5, and it’s not hard to see why: the device reportedly includes a 5.9-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio display with an iPhone X-style notch on top. Here are the details you need to know about it.
Accordingly, there’s no visible fingerprint sensor, for that matter, so the Motorola’s Moto X5 is either relying on face detection (the dual front-facing cameras could eventually help with this) or has a fingerprint reader tucked under the screen.
Apparently, the X5 wouldn’t lean solely on its screen as its selling point. There would also be a “smart AI” helping out, and dual rear cameras to complement those on the front. The Moto Z3 and Z3 Play would have tall, curved 6-inch screens but no notch (may look closer to the Galaxy S8).
Not that the X would hog all the clever ideas. Instead, they rely on Motorola support as their selling point – there would also be a 5G mod to deliver super-fast wireless, presumably without a battery life tip. There may be a third Moto Z with a Snapdragon 845 down the road.
There would also be the Moto G line. The G6, 6G Plus, and G6 Play would bring 18:9 displays to the Motorola’s more affordable phones (5.7 inches in the G6 / G6 Play, 5.93″ for G6 Plus), albeit with more familiar designs that include conventional fingerprint readers. Otherwise, they’re speed bumps.
The regular G6 would use a Snapdragon 450 chip, while at least the G6 Plus would use a Snapdragon 630. The G6 Plus would also get a battery capacity to 3200mAh, and the G6 Play would be a lovingly champ with a 4,000mAh power pack.
Currently, we have only the G6 models with comprehensive specs and pricing ($240 for the G6, $330 for the Plus), and there’s no definitive launch window. The G6 makes sense for a debut at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next month, but it could months more until the other phones arrive.
So we’d definitely take these leaks with a grain of salt. Whether or not the rumors are accurate, a lot can change over the course of several months. Motorola may have to scale back its ambitions or make tweaks before launch. What do say?
