We didnt get a new Moto X in 2016, with the company instead skipping straight to the Moto Z , but that doesnt mean the name is dead - and leaked images suggest it could soon be reborn with the Moto X 2017. Four images supposedly showing the phone were shared by Jerry Yin on Google+ and they include a dual-lens camera for the first time on a Motorola handset. One of the images also reveals some specs, including a Snapdragon 625 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, marking this out as a distinctly mid-range phone, which makes sense given the Z range is Lenovo's (Motorola's owners) high-end Moto proposition. Between G and Z The specs are very similar to the Moto G5 Plus , but with its dual-lens camera and X branding the Moto X 2017 is likely to slot in just above the G range. Other details that we can make out from the images include a likely metal build, a flash for the front-facing camera and a home button probably with a fingerprint scanner built in below the screen.

Ever since the Lenovo takeover, Moto's design language has changed pretty drastically. The unique material choices and dual front-facing speakers of yesteryear have been ditched for front-mounted fingerprint sensors, more obnoxious-looking cameras, and metal and glass designs. The latest edition of this comes in the form of the 2017 Moto X, which has just been leaked in several photos. It's not a looker. Up front, we can see the traditional Motorola prototype identifiers and "MOTOROLA CONFIDENTIAL PROPERTY.

Motorola has gone through some big changes in the last few years; from its waning days of independence (with crummy phones), to the Google acquisition (with much better phones), and finally to being manhandled by Lenovo (with weird phones). One of Motorola's most important products through all of this has been the Moto G. The original Moto G boosted interest in budget devices by showing everyone they don't have to be terrible.

We’ve documented the decline of Motorola under Lenovo extensively. We still liked the phones, which had probably been developed mostly under Google’s ownership anyway, but in 2015 we started to see slower updates and shorter support lifecycles . Last year was when the wheels really started to come off. Not only did the company mostly ruin its flagship phone by swapping the inexpensive and competent Moto X for the expensive and weird Moto Z , but Lenovo issued several contradictory statements about software updates that made it unclear whether the Z or the fourth-generation Moto G would be receiving regular updates at all. It’s not all bad. The Moto G4, especially the G4 Plus configuration, was still a solid midrange phone that offered good-enough performance, a nice big 1080p screen, and a fingerprint reader for £230. Unlike the Moto Z, it at least understood and respected the intent behind the original 2013 Moto G : an affordable phone with clean, unskinned Android and no-to-low-frills hardware that got the job done.

While the PS4 Pro has the dedicated PlayStation VR headset, Microsoft doesnt have any exclusive hardware. Instead, Microsoft will use an existing VR headset like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive , though no specific headsets have been named as partners. Microsoft has also said that Scorpio and Xbox One will support all Windows Mixed Reality headsets , which include models from Lenovo, Dell, Acer and HP in 2018. This means that Scorpio will end up supporting mixed and virtual reality experiences. If this is done right, it could give Microsoft the edge in terms of breadth and perhaps depth. Project Scorpio vs PS4 Pro films and media Films and media is another area where the two consoles are likely to be similar in some respects, but very different in others. The biggest difference is that Project Scorpio will have an Ultra HD Blu-ray player which will allow it to play Ultra HD Blu-rays in all their uncompressed 4K HDR glory.

As a 10-yearold I bult my first PC, a 16Mhz 386 with 2 MB of RAM, 20 MB 3.5” IDE HDD and booted DOS 3.1. Ever since I have been a serious PC enthusiast. In the beginning it was all about pushing the system to it’s limits by overclocking and homemade water cooling systems based on fountain pumps and garden hoses from the hardware store that dangled down the window from my childhood room. When I eventually moved from the comfort of my parents’ home I remember feeling “my home is where my PC is”. In fact, the first I unpacked was my green Cheftech full-tower monster, stared WinAmp and spent hours on IRC before I started thinking of the rest of the moving boxes. After 10 years in the management consulting industry (and countless Lenovo Laptops) the urge of revisiting the good old days suddenly came back. I was surprised to see that the product development in the PC case field had practically been standing still since I last built a PC.

Final verdict When you spend the best part of 500 (around $620, AU$800) on a tablet, you expect near perfection when it comes to the delivery. The Teclast X5 Pro is battling against some serious competition at this level: the Core-M-powered HP Pavilion x2 12-b100na costs far less (449 around $550, AU$715 at the time of writing) and includes a keyboard and an active pen. Its the same story for the Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700 (599.99 at the time of writing around $740, AU$960) which comes with a 3D camera and a keyboard case. Sure, the hardware specifications of both are sub-par compared to the X5 Pro but they are both backed by global, recognised brands (Dell stopped selling detachable 2-in-1 tablets, opting instead for Yoga-like models). That said, theres a lot to love about the X5 Pro.

KOLKATA: Two of the country’s largest marketplaces, Amazon and Flipkart, are set to push sales of their online exclusive smartphones through brick-and-mortar stores, a move aimed at expanding the business in India and preparing for the goods and services tax (GST) regime, which will reduce the price difference between offline and online markets. GST is expected to be rolled out on July 1. Amazon will start with brands like Coolpad, Motorola, Lenovo, Huawei and One-Plus and is talking to Samsung and Xiaomi to extend it to their popular models like Samsung On5 Pro and Mi, respectively. The company had earlier tested the waters with offline distribution of smartphones when it had excess stock after demonetisation, but has now firmed it up as a proper business in India. Flipkart is yet to finalise its plans, but it has given an indication to the brands that it will look at expansion of the smartphone business through the offline distribution and sales route.

19mm in so-called thickness. What's uncanny about its dimensions is that Motorola introduced its thickness as 5.2 inches at Lenovo Tech World unveiling in June. When has a company ever rounded up on their smartphone thickness? This may be why Motorola didn't call it the Moto X 2016, even though that's really what this is. The design drops the curved back and familiar Motorola dimple for a flat and boxy shape that still feels good to hold. All of this means that it's so thin it doesn't even include a normal 3.5mm headphone jack. Yes, Motorola beat Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to dropping the headphone jack in favor of charging-audio output "solution." Thinner than an iPhone and any Samsung Galaxy phone to date There's nothing on the bottom except for a USB Type-C port. Included in the box is a 3.5mm jack to USB-C cable to convert your existing headphones, or you have the option of using Bluetooth.
