Is this what Motorola’s next flagship smartphones will look like?

February will be a big month for smartphone launches, but we’re still a little way off new Motorola devices.

Images purporting to show prototypes for new Motorola smartphones have leaked online.

The fuzzy snaps appear to reveal a number of possible chassis designs for the upcoming 2016 versions of the Moto X and Moto G.


The images were supposedly leaked from Lenovo, which owns Motorola.

The handsets look like classic Motorola design however, and feature the signature ‘M’ branding on the rear.

There’s also a range of colour options visible in the shots, which isn’t a big surprise. Motorola already offers the Moto Maker smartphone customisation tool for users who want to switch up their handset’s paintjob.

Unfortunately, the images don’t reveal much else about the upcoming handsets.

Earlier this year, Lenovo CEO Yaunging Yang revealed a new Motorola smartphone would arrive in the middle of 2016.

However, the company has remained tight-lipped on what’s to come thus far.


Last year’s Motorola handsets were well-received by critics. We gave the Moto X Style a 9/10, the Moto X Play an 8/10, and the Moto G a 9/10 in our product reviews.

What do you think of Motorola’s smartphone designs, past and present? Let us know in the comments.
