According to Evan Blass, Venture Beat writer and the man behind the majority of the Moto G4 leaks, Lenovo has built two versions of its Motorola-branded X devices that will allow for modular backplates along the lines of LG’s friends.
There will be six magnetically-adhering modules, or “amps,” at launch reports Blass’s source, including stereo speakers, a battery pack and a camera grip with flash.
Blass says the phones themselves are titled the “Vertex” and “Vector Thin.” The Vector Thin is the more high-end handset, with a Quad HD resolution, Qualcomm 820 Snapdragon SoC and 32 GB of internal storage. It will also purportedly have 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel sensor camera with OIS.
The Vertex, in contrast, will have a full HD display, Snapdragon 625 SoC and 16 GB of internal storage. Its camera will have a 16 megapixel sensor and laser-assisted and phase detection autofocus.
In appearance, the Vertex is reported to be 7mm in thickness, in comparison to the Vector Thin’s 5.2mm. Only a few days ago Blass posted stating that a leaked photo of the Moto X from December 2015 was “100% real.”

The overall design didn’t go over well with many of his followers, one Twitter user writing, “Is that the new benchmark for ugliness?”
Whether or not the design is a hit, if the leak proves truthful, potential buyers will likely have to contend with a more premium price than has been seen before for the Moto X.
