Back in 2013, Motorola, at that time owned by Google, released the first generation of Moto X. The device was a hit in the market, due to success of its concept of “be simple in what matter”, bring nearly vanilla Android and a good use of Google Now capabilities.
The story of X series saw a shady period during 2016, when Motorola company, now under Lenovo greatness, decided to not launch an upgrade for 2015’s Moto X Play and Moto X Pure. Until this year, when all of sudden the company decided to release the Moto X4 marking the return of the smartphone, but this time sitting at the midrange segment.
According to a recent leak exposed by no one else than Evan Blass, from evleaks, the Moto X series isn’t going away anytime soon and the Moto X5 is already in the works. The revelation was made through a picture with the logo of the referred unreleased smartphone.
However, Evan doesn’t mention any feature or specification sported by the device, but judging by what Moto X4 brings we can have an idea. The Moto X5 may sport a water and dust resistant body with a midrange processor, probably Snapdragon 636 and a dual rear camera setup, everything placed under an attractive price.

The Moto X4 was announced in August, and hit the market in October, curiously as Android One for the US market. Considering this we don’t expect the Moto X5 to appear before the first half of 2018, but the way considering how leaks appear fast in this crazy smartphone world, we expect to have more news about the handset in the near future.
