The release date of the anticipated Moto X 2016 is approaching and we’re starting to hear more rumors about its specs and features. The internet is full of leaked images of the device and fans are expecting two variants that are reportedly codenamed Vector Thin and Vertex.
News18 claims that the Vector Thin will be the premium version of the upcoming Moto flagship, while Vertex will be the standard version, with weaker specs, but both of the devices will have modular backplates.
In the leaked images can be spotted golden dots on the back of the new Moto X and VentureBeat is pretty sure that Motorola will use modular backplates that will allow users to add and replace accessories, just like on LG’s G5 flagship. The accessories that will be changed will include the camera, battery, stereo speakers and more.
The upcoming Snapdragon 820 chipset will power a lot of flagships and the Moto X 2016 will be among the first devices that will use the latest technology, but the Vertex variant will come with a weaker Snapdragon 625 processor, which will support 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The Vector Thin will get either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and the same memory capacity.
Both Moto X variants will have slimmer bodies than their predecessors, as the Vector Thin will measure only 5.2mm and will have a 5.5-inch display with a QHD resolution, while the Vertex will be a bit thicker, measuring 7mm, and its display will have a diagonal of 5.2-inch and will support a Full HD resolution.
The Vector Thin is rumored to sport a 13MP camera on its back with OIS, laser AF, a larger sensor and better aperture range, for producing higher quality photos in low light conditions. The Vertex is expected to come with a 6MP rear camera that will support laser AF and PDAF and it will be powered by a 3500mAh battery. Its brother will get a much smaller 2600mAh battery, but both will benefit from Qualcomm’s Quick Charge mode.
If IndiaToday’s report is correct, then Motorola will unveil its new flagships on June 9, at Tech World 2016 event. The expected launch prices of the two flagships ranges between $450 and $500.
