    There have already been some leaked renders of the supposed Z4, and it looks a lot like the traditional Z series back with the round camera bump to hold Moto Mods. My guess is this phone would be the newest X series. Maybe the Moto X5?

    The X4 was (is) a great phone, with mid range specs. A new Moto X with top specs would be nice. I really liked the first 2 Moto X phones, and still have a few. It would also be nice to see some new ingenious functionality built into the Moto app. Some cool new stuff. The phone in that pic kind of has a Moto X look to it. But then again, as I've said in other threads, all phones kind of start to look alike these days.

    I hope there will be a great new Moto flagship phone! I love the Moto products and I still have my Moto ZForce...I need more storage room in the next one because I have 4 grandkids and 2 dogs lol and have used up a lot of room I'm ready for a new phone. Just paid mine off a little while ago

    I would love to see another Moto flagship to. I'm really disappointed with the lack of updates on my G7. If they came out with one and T-Mo carried it, I'd be all over it.

    What drives me crazy about Motorola now is that they won't make a real flagship device. A device that checks all the boxes needed. A good AMOLED screen, a 4000mh battery with Wireless charging, NFC and the lastest processors. Seems like some of the phones have some of these things but not one model has all of them as they should. I have stuck with Motorola phones since the '90s but had to choose a different brand when they started that Moto Mod crap. Who wants to carry around an extended battery and separate QI mod and then a separate NFC mod? Now they are making phones with larger screens and battery's but have no NFC or QI Charging. I'm stuck with an LG G7 until they get their head out.

    My Z Force and Z2 Force and Z Play and Z2 all have NFC and great battery life. I personally like the Moto Mods. But to each their own.

    I know I'm a broken record, but I'm holding out for, first, 5G....and then, hopefully, a smaller phone with a nice 5.0-5.2" screen.

    Replaced the battery, screen protector and back cover on my Turbo recently and it was like a brand new phone. But I'm finding Pie doesn't seem to like a lot of my favorite apps/widgets, so might have to roll back to Oreo.

    Was running great on Android 7.0 for a long time, so I probably will just go back to that. Most of my apps that have long ceased to be supported still run great on 7.0. LOL, who would have thought that app obsolescence would become a reason NOT to upgrade?

    Agreed, we all have different ideas of what a Flagship should be but the main Title of this thread is what drew me to it in the first place so I know I'm not the only one that feels this way about the current generation. I'm on Verizon and there are only 2 models available to me right now. the Moto Z3 which yes does have an 835 processor and NFC and of course will have the ability to use a 5G mod, but it lacks wireless charging available on most Flagships and the battery is just ok at 3000mah. I'm simply not interested in putting on 3 different mods to improve battery life, wirelessly charge the phone and be able to use 5G someday. Then they go and release the Moto G7 line with a more accepted flagship look but a lowly 632 processor, no NFC, no wireless charging, a 720 screen and not on Verizon, as of yet. If it had any of those things, I would have purchased the Moto G7 Power immediately but they didn't so as a long time Motorola Employee and Phone user, I am left waiting and wanting a real Flagship from the company I use to always believe in. I'm glad you like your Mods but like you said, to each their own. The closest one to everything I would want is the G7 Plus but it's still a small processor and no wireless charging on a 3000mah battery. Moto just cannot compete with real Flagships right now but I hope someday they will find their way back.
