Motorola's final Moto X4 design and specifications leak

Just a day ago, we saw leaked Images allegedly confirming the design of the Moto X4 and now, AndroidAuthority has leaked final renders of the Moto X4 in all its glory.

According to the previous leaks, Motorola and Lenovo plans to launch the Moto X4 in the fourth quarter at a mid-tier price. Additionally Moto X4 will be the first non-Nexus-or-Pixel-branded handset to offer Fi-compatibility.

As you can see in the above image, the Moto X4 is having a curved display with front facing fingerprint sensor, which can be used for navigation as well. The aluminum back is having dual-rear camera with Moto branding.



The Moto X4 will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD glass layered display with 3D glass on top. The device will be available in Super Black or Sterling Blue measuring in at 148.35 x 73.4 x 7.99 mm and weighing in at 163 grams. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 630 chipset (eight cores all running at 2.2GHz), Adreno 508 GPU along with 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage. The device will sport a 3000mAh battery.


Europe, North America and Latin America will get 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, while the Asia Pacific region will get 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage

The Moto X4 will be the first Motorola smartphone after 2016, to feature IP68 level of certification. On the Camera side, it will feature a 16-megapixel front shooter which is designed for ultra low-light selfies and will come with an Adaptive Low Light mode. It will be capable of shooting 4k video at 30 frames per second or Full HD video at 60 frames per second.

The 12MP rear shooter will feature dual pixel autofocus, f/2.0 aperture and 1.4µm pixel size, while the other 8MP ultra-wide sensor will feature f/2.2 aperture, 1.12µm pixel size and 120° field of view.
