Motorola launched a plethora of smartphones in 2017, to varying degrees of critical acclaim. While devices like the G5 Plus, and E4 Plus were hailed as some of the best offerings in their price segments, others like the Z2 Force and X4 were a lot more divisive. Our friends over at Droid Life, yesterday, released a series of exclusives showing what to expect from Motorola's 2018 lineup.

The Moto X4 was a solid mid-ranger and one of our picks for best value smartphones of 2017, and its successor will make a number of improvements on it. Most notable is the presence of what appears to be a notch at the top of the display. From the released images, both the battery and connectivity icons are on either side of the selfie camera and headset. Speaking of selfie cameras, there looks to be two of them—a trend that began midway through 2017 and will likely be more commonplace this year. 

In terms of design, the X5 sports an obvious 18:9 display, which is about par these days. It also embraces the bezel-less trend, with minimal side bezels and a slight chin. Quite mysteriously, there's no obvious fingerprint sensor on the device. The Moto logo at the back is conspicuously placed, though, so we have cause to believe that it doubles up as a fingerprint reader.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
