When the first Moto X was revealed to the world, we thought it was going to be a game-changer. Could we finally have a great phone that was actually reasonably priced? We haven’t had a new Moto X since mid-2015, but it looks like Motorola is ready to resurrect the X factor with the imminent arrival of the Moto X4. And we’ve got all the juicy details.

Moto X4 Rocks the Midrange with Dual Cameras and Glass Back

The image at the very top of the post comes by way of famed leaker Evan Blass (via Pocket-Lint and this has now been further confirmed by images acquired by Android Authority. The core specs place the new Moto X4 squarely in the mid-range.

Behind the 5.2-inch full HD display (no curved screens or QHD here), you’ll find a Snapdragon 630 processor and Adreno 508 graphics. Most markets will get phones with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but those in Asia Pacific can expect a model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The Moto X4 will be offered in Super Black or Sterling Blue with a 3000mAh battery.

The leak from late last year got some things right and some things not so right. The pill-shaped home button with built-in fingerprint reader is there and while the circular camera bump on the back is similar, the earlier leak showed a single camera configuration rather than the dual camera setup we see here. That’s a 12MP unit with dual autofocus, plus an 8MP shooter with an ultra-wide field of view. The 16MP camera on the front can shoot 4K video too.

There’s the glass back too, which may or may not lead us to believe that the Moto X4 will be capable of wireless charging as well, but they are saying it will be IP68 certified. And then you get all the Motorola niceties like Moto Voice, Moto Actions and Moto Display.


It’s possible that Motorola will take the official wraps off the Moto X4 at IFA at the end of the month, which would be the same time we expect to see the LG V30. That would mean the phone should be ready in time for fall, possibly in October or November.
