Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility may already have started working on the fourth generation of its flagship Moto X smartphone. Although, details about the Moto X (Gen 4) are all but scarce at the moment, a leaked image doing the rounds on internet apparently shows off the phone — from the back — in all its metallic glory. You heard that right. If the purported image is to be gone by, we may be looking at Motorola’s first ever full metal unibody phone in the next Moto X.
Motorola currently has two Moto X phones in the market. One is the Moto X Play , while the other is the Moto X Style . Both the phones have a plastic build with the pricier Moto X Style having a metallic rim on the outside. According to the leaked image, the Moto X (Gen 4) will have a full metal unibody design which is slightly different from the current generation Moto phones. The vertical ascent that housed the camera module and the Moto logo seems to have been replaced by a larger, more prominent circular camera apparatus with a dualLED flash system incorporated inside. The Moto logo meanwhile sits flush below the camera. The upper and lower ends of the phone seem to sport a brushed polycarbonate finish, possibly to house the antennas.
The power button and volume rocker lie on the right while what appears to be the speaker vent is also placed on the lower end of the back. Sadly, that’s all the information we can gauge out from the leaked image.
Whether or not the upcoming Moto X will have two variants like the Moto X (Gen 3) is still not known. Also, there’s no information about the possible spec sheet of the alleged phone. That being said, the leak does raise expectations about what could be in store.
