Wondering what Motorola has been up to after the release of its mid-range smartphones Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus in February? Well here’s the answer. The Lenovo-acquired Motorola Mobility is working on a bunch of smartphones and the list has been leaked.
Renowned tipster Evan Blass has tweeted a leaked image showing the complete list of smartphones Motorola plans to release this year. Two days back, a video presentation of Moto X4, which we have been calling Moto X 2017, was also leaked. The image of the phone list seems to be shot at the same presentation.
Now we know there will be at least 9 Motorola smartphones released this year. As seen from the list, Motorola has decided to target all the sections, from flagship to mid-range to budget smartphones.
Starting from below, the entry-level Motorola phones to be launched this year will be two phones from Moto C series and two from Moto E series. Moto C and Moto C Plus will be launched with 5-inch display and 5-inch HD display with massive 4000mAH battery respectively. Similarly, there will be a Moto E and a Moto E Plus. The former will get a 5-inch HD display with 2.5D curved edge and Moto E Plus will come with a bigger 5.5-inch HD display. Interestingly, the Moto E Plus will be aimed at heavy duty users with an impressive 5000mAH battery.
In the mid-range category, we already have Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Two more will be added to the G series viz Moto Gs and Moto Gs Plus, which Blass says will be the two variants of G5 and G5 Plus respectively. The Moto G5S will be equipped with a 5.2-inch FHD display and a full metal body while the Moto G5S Plus will have a 5.5-inch FHD display with dual cameras.
Climbing up the ladder we have the Moto X series smartphone. So, there will be a Moto X4, as we already know, which confirmedly will get a 5.2-inch HD display with 3D glass and a SmartCam feature that probably refers to dual rear camera.
Finally, we have the Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force. The former will flaunt a 5.5-inch FHD display while the latter will have Motorola’s ‘ShatterShield’ display and support for 1 GHz LTE speeds. Both will also come with support for Moto Mods accessories.
