There are lots of new details on Motorola's upcoming Moto X has been revealed. However, recently the famous leaker Evan Blass has revealed that this upcoming device actually won't be called the Moto X 2017, but rather, it will be dubbed as the "Moto X4."

While, in the past, Motorola has revised the branding of the Moto X based on the year (i.e. 2014 Moto X), this change does make sense. As the company fell into Lenovo, its branding has changed to a numbered scheme, such as the Moto G4 and Moto G5, as well as the Moto Z2 family.

The Moto X 2017 or Moto X4 will reportedly use a 5.5-inch display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a Snapdragon 660 processor, and a 3,800 mAh battery. Apart from being an endurance driven smartphone, the Moto X4 will also be expected act as a successor to the original Moto Z Play by offering tremendous battery life, performance, and a premium builds for a pocket-friendly cost, just without Moto Mods capabilities, according to Phone Arena.

Regardless of the name, the Moto X 2017 or Moto X4 in question was featured in a recent teaser video, as well as a leaked presentation a few hours ago. The said specs give a premium mid-range offering - sitting right below the Z2 in Moto's lineup.

Moto X4 is expected will be sold unlocked in the US, being compatible with most relevant carriers, just like the Moto G5 and G5 Plus are. For now, there's there is no word on how much the Moto X4 will cost, but under $500 a guess which several publications are speculating.
