Motorola has been owned by Lenovo for quite some time now, and unfortunately for those of you who are fans of the Motorola naming, Lenovo has announced that they’re re-branding the company. Motorola won’t cease to exist, but the Motorola naming sure will. The company’s ‘Moto’ devices will continue selling under the Lenovo brand, alongside with Lenovo’s Vibe Android-powered smartphones. That being said, Motorola has introduced some really compelling devices last year, including the Moto G (2015), Moto X Play, Moto X Style, Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2. The Moto X Style can be considered Motorola’s flagship at the moment, and we haven’t really heard much about its successor thus far, even though it’s expected to arrive in July this year. Well, some images surfaced recently, read on.

If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see a couple of leaked images which allegedly show off Motorola’s upcoming smartphones. According to the source, these are the upcoming Moto X and Moto G handsets. There are quite a few devices here, and we’re guessing that the ones with a plastic back are Moto G smartphones, while the ones with the metal back are Moto X devices. Now, according to Lenovo’s CEO, Yuanqing Yang, the company plans to introduce a ‘major smartphone’ in the US in mid-2016, which fits perfectly with Moto G and Moto X release cycle. Could these be the upcoming Moto X and Moto G handsets? Well, it’s hard to say, it’s still way to early to be certain of anything, but as things usually go with such leaks, if these are legit, we’ll see them leak several times over before they get announced by the company.

The source did not reveal anything about these device’s specifications, but as I said, it’s way to early for something like that. These images are quite blurry, but it seems like the Moto X will be a metal unibody handset this time around, while the Moto G will sport a metallic frame, and a plastic back which will be replaceable once again. The Moto G’s camera will be centered in the upper portion of the phone’s back, while the Moto X’s images are too blurry for us to be certain of what we’re seeing. Either way, stay tuned, if any other Moto X and / or Moto G leaks surface, we’ll make sure to let you know.
