Motorola is working on a host of new devices ranging from entry-level Android to premium smartphones. There have been constant leaks about Moto C, Moto E, and Moto Z series. But this time there is a presentation video revealing all Motorola 2017 lineup and Moto X4.
Let's stop calling it "Moto X 2017," eh? pic.twitter.com/dBnUr5n7CU

Evan Blass declared that Moto X 2017 edition will be called Moto X4.
There was a brief video, originally posted on a China-based Baidu account and since copied to the Slashleaks YouTube channel, shows that the Moto X4 will have a metal body. The video also claims the phone will have some kind of “smart camera” and “AI integration”. The Moto X4 will have IP68 water and dust resistance, along with always-on voice, support, and Turbo Charging support for the battery. Check out the video below:
A Reddit member claims that his translation reveals Moto X4 will have the just announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor inside. The phone will also have 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of onboard storage, a 3,800 mAh battery, a laser autofocus camera and a front-facing fingerprint sensor, again according to this unofficial audio translation.
Evan Blass also posted an image showing all Motorola devices to be launched in 2017. It shows the new Moto C and C Plus budget-friendly phones that have been leaked before. It also shows the Moto E and E Plus, which again have leaked before under the name of Moto E4 and E4 Plus.
The slide also shows new versions of the Moto G lineup. Yes, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus have already launched, but the slide indicates we will see new Moto GS and Moto GS Plus models that will launch later this year. The Moto GS will have a 5.2-inch Full HD display and will have a full metal case, while the 5.5-inch Moto GS Plus will also have a Full HD display, along with a “dual cam” setup.
The Moto X4 is next, and the above picture confirms it will have a 5.2-inch display (not the 5.5-inch screen as the reddit audio translator claimed).
At last, there’s the new Moto Z Play and Moto Z Play Force, both will be launched under”Z2” branding. The Play model will have a 5.5-inch Full HD display, while the slide shows the Force version will have Motorola’s “ShatterShield” display and support for 1 GHz LTE speeds. Both models will also support the Moto Mods accessories that launched in 2016 with the original Moto Z phones. It’s already been reported that the new Force model will have the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
The Motorola 2017 lineup has a phone for every budget. However, the second release in “G” series comes with a bit of surprise. We can easily call it the largest lineup by any smartphone manufacturer in 2017.
