The mid-range smartphone market is dominated by numerous players – chief among all being Motorola. However, when it comes to causing an impact in the premium category smartphone, Motorola is nowhere to be found.
The company seems to have easily accepted defeat from the likes of companies like Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus and others. This year, we are going to observe several significant changes in the smartphone industry. Take for instance Sony, who after what seems like forever, has decided to ditch the classic design in the favor of a bezel-less front look. Motorola is expected to follow the same trend as well.
According to a report published by IBTimes, a leaked image of the upcoming Moto X5 smartphone showcases the device in its full glory, revealing its complete design and numerous important specifications. These images first showed up on a website called Droid Life, and since then have gone viral.
“Moto X5 is going to have an edge-to-edge display with rounded corners and 18:9 aspect ratio. With that Motorola is going to accommodate a 5.9-inch Full HD+ display, which won’t seem that big due to a compact body. But that’s not the change standing out in the Moto X5,” notes IBTimes.
If the information provided through the leaked image turns out to be true, then Motorola’s upcoming X5 smartphone will look a lot like Apple’s iPhone X. The handset will pack two camera sensors on the rear front along with the speakers and will also be featuring the facial recognition software embedded in the camera system. Additionally, the leaked image further reveals that the single software button located on the rear end will also feature a navigation bar. It is possible that the Moto X5 users will be able to swap between a single and a 3-button setup for the back, home, and recent apps.
