Complete lineup of Motorola smartphones for 2017 leaks, Moto X to make a comeback

Thanks to a certain company presentation slide, we now know what Moto is planning for in 2017 and what we can expect this year.


Motorola has expanded its smartphone range over the years but 2017 could see the company go more aggressive than ever. There have been leaks about an ultra-budget Moto C smartphone, the new Moto E as well as the new Moto Z supporting Moto Mods.

Today, thanks to a certain company presentation slide, we know that all of the above are definitely coming this year along with a brand new Moto X.

The leak shows that Motorola will now have five tiers targeted to different consumer needs. The range begins with the Moto C and Moto C Plus representing the 'Unlimited Essentials' range. It will now be the most affordable offering from the company featuring a 5-inch 480p display while the Moto C Plus will have a similar sized 720p display and a 4000 mAh battery. Both of them are also expected to come with 4G connectivity.

Moving up, the Moto E lineup gets a refresh entering the fourth generation. Touted as 'Unlimited Value', the new Moto E  is expected to feature a  5-inch 720p display, 2.5D curved glass and a fingerprint sensor. The Moto E Plus will have a larger 5.5-inch 720p display and a large 5,000 mAh battery. It's safe to assume that the E Plus will come with the same 2.5D glass and fingerprint sensor.

The Moto G series already saw an update a few months back, it is expected to be replaced with the Moto gS and gS+. The 'Unlimited Premium' range will now feature the Moto gS having a 5.2-inch 1080p display and a full metal body. The Moto gS+ will come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a dual camera setup.

The Moto X, which was originally the flagship range, finally makes a comeback. The arrival of Moto Z seemed as if the company had forgotten about the X, but we will finally see one this year. The Moto X4 is tagged as 'Unlimited Perfection' and will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display with curved edges and something called 'SmartCam.'

Finally we have the Moto Z which will be similar to last year's variants, the Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force. The Z Play will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display and the Z Force will feature Moto's ShatterShield display protection. Both the handsets will support Moto Mods. There is also the mention of gigabit LTE for the Z Force which means that it will run on a Snapdragon 835 as it is the only chipset currently that has the X20 modem.
