    If you aren't all about that Samsung life then skip the Samsung event and check out these leaked images of the upcoming 2017 Moto X. Leakster Jerry Yin posted the photos to his Google+ page showing off the next gen Moto phone. We can see a few things from these images. The fingerprint sensor appears to be located on the front of the device. The phone looks to be all metal. We have the same large camera on the back of the device this time it seems to include a dual lens setup. We don't see the connection points at the bottom of the back of the phone used for the Moto Mods like on the Moto Z lineup.

    The specs that accompanied the images include 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 625 processor, and 32GB of onboard storage. The Model number is XT1801. While the leakster seems to think this is the Moto X I find it hard to believe that Motorola would include a Snapdragon 625 in their latest flagship. If this phone doesn't include Moto Mods are you the least bit interested?

    Did the Moto X have moto mods? Not an expert, but I thought only the Moto Z did.

    Moto Z is the only line to have Moto Mods. It was my impression that Moto would make Moto Mods compatible with More of their Phones to make more Developers interested and hopefully increase their Market Share

    Moto also announced that they wanted to continue the X brand phone for the folks that want a pure Android experience, with Moto app functionality, and don't want to use Moto Mods. I hope they do live up to that and continue the Moto X lineup. They have all been great phones; I still have three of them as family spares. I just hope they go with decent specs and don't turn it into another mid range phone.

    No I'm not. That would mean that they're not into the mods going forward on other models

    Keep in mind Moto has numerous phones already that are not Mod phones....Moto G, Moto E, Moto M. They are not cancelling the Moto Z series. There will be a 2017 Moto Z line to continue the Moto Mods. The Moto X line is for people that are not interested in Mods.

    Yes, they did. Earlier this year Moto announced that they plan to continue the Moto Z line for 3 years....And that all current Moto Mods would be compatible for the next few generations of Z phones.

    I'm happy to hear the Moto X line might come back in 2017. They are great phones for those that are not interested in Moto Mods....Like my kids.

    As long as it's the Super duper new Sony camera that's in g5 plus, I might get it for my wife as she is pictures crazy. The processor itself is very energy efficient when combined with 1080p screen.

    Dear Motorolenovo,

    Please use M logo dimple on the back for the fingerprint sensor.

    Sincerely,
