Usually we get leaks regarding one or two smartphones from a company at a time but now Lenovo’s entire lineup for 2017 seems to have popped up on the Internet in the form of a leaked presentation slide. As per the leaked image, the company will be launching nine smartphones spread across Z, Moto X, Moto G, Moto E, and Moto C Series targeted at different buyers during the year. If you’re wondering why the Moto G would still be an upcoming phone, after the launch of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, it appears a new GS series is in the offing. Separately, a video of Lenovo’s X4 presentation has been leaked while seven of the company’s upcoming smartphones have been tipped to feature Android Nougat.
First coming to the leaked image of entire lineup. The presentation slide was obtained by well-known tipster Evan Blass and shows the names of the Lenovo’s branded smartphones spread across 5 series. The new C Series has been leaked several times in the recent past. In the leaked slide, the C series has been described to cover ‘Unlimited Essentials’ in two models -C and C Plus. While C will feature a 5-inch FWVGA (480×854 pixels) display, the C Plus will come with a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and a 4000mAh battery.
Moving to the popular E Series, described to offer ‘Unlimited Value’, Lenovo will launch E and E Plus smartphones this year. The E will sport a 5-inch HD display, 2.5D curved glass, and for the first time in this series – fingerprint sensor. On the other hand, E Plus smartphone will come with a 5.5- inch display and a massive 5000mAh battery.
While the company launched G5 earlier this year, it is expected to launch new smartphones in its G series that has been said to come as ‘Unlimited Premium’. The leaked presentation image suggests that Lenovo will launch GS and GS+ smartphones this year but Evan Blass says that the phones will be named G5S and G5S Plus instead. In its branding, usually only appends the generation along with the smartphone series, i.e, calling the G5 the Moto G fifth generation. Thus, Blass’ naming clarification makes perfect sense when pointing a new GS-series. The Moto G5S will come with a 5.2-inch full-HD display and full metal body while the Moto G5S Plus will sport a 5.5-inch full-HD display and a dual-camera setup.
Separately, Lenovo’s 7 branded smartphones with model numbers beginning from XT have now received Wi-Fi certification from Wi-Fi Alliance, as pointed out in a report by MobileXpose. The model numbers in consideration are XT1770, XT1772, XT1773, XT1724, XT1725, XT1726, and XT1721. Interestingly, the phones have been suggested to come with Android 7.0/7.1.1 Nougat versions. These phones are expected to be launched in the Moto C or Moto E series and will all be powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC.
