Possible Moto X (2016) Photo Surfaces, but is it fake?


Earlier today, Nowhereelse posted a photo of what they claim is the next Moto X design from Motorola and Lenovo. As you can see above, the photo appears to show an all metal back which is a significant departure from the design of the current Moto X. The backplate really resembles a mashup of an iPhone and a Lumia device with a huge camera cutout in the center of the phone. There is also an apparent speaker grill on the back of the phone, which would indicate that Motorola or Lenovo are no longer interested in the excellent front-facing stereo speakers on this year’s Moto X Pure Edition.

It seems pretty unlikely to me that Motorola would ditch Moto Maker and the design language they have built upon the past few years in favor an all metal design, but crazier things have certainly happened. It’s worth pointing out that Nowhereelse did have some credible rumor information in 2015, so we will have to wait and see what develops, although it does seem early for Motorola leaks. Does this look legit to you? Sound off in the comments!

    Looks ridiculous, and where are the specs?

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
