Motorola has released a slew of smartphones this year - from the pocket friendly Moto C series to the flagship Moto Z2 Play and Moto Z2 Force. However, ardent Motorola fans have been eagerly (and patiently) waiting for an update to Motorola's iconic X series of smartphones. While a few sketchy details of the Moto X4 have surfaced online in the past, Android Authority has now leaked the final design and purported specifications of the X4.
Design wise, the Moto X4 looks to carry forward Motorola's current design ethos seen in the likes of the Moto G5s and Moto E4 Plus with a circular camera unit at the back, rounded edges and a Motorola logo set right below the camera lens. Where the smartphone is set to differ from the rest of the Moto range is the fact that the back is said to be made out of glass rather than metal.
When it comes to specifications, the report claims that the Moto X4 will come with a 5.2-inch FullHD display, the Snapdragon 630 processor, a 3,000mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button up front. The variant sold in North America, Latin America and Europe will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage while the model intended for sale in Asia Pacific regions will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
It was earlier leaked that the Moto X4 will feature a dual camera setup at the rear. Android Authority's report further corroborates those claims. The report claims that the X4 will feature a 12MP primary sensor at the rear with dual-autofocus alongside an 8MP ultra-wide secondary sensor. On the front, there is expected to be 16MP senor for selfies that will be able to shoot videos in 4K.
While Motorola has not made the release date of the Moto X4 official, some reports claim that Motorola may launch the Moto X4 at an event in Brazil on August 24. The smartphone is expected to be available in two colour variants - black and blue.
