The Moto X4 is a mid-range model but it is a premium mid-ranger and was first unveiled for Europe at IFA Berlin in September. The device is one of the first smartphones to come with inbuilt support for Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, and since it is based on Android 7.1 Nougat, it also supports Google Assistant. Other features which make the Moto X4 a standout model include an IP68 water and dust resistance.
The Moto X4 has a 5.2-inch 1080p display covered with a 2.5D glass. It has joined the still very short list of phones powered by the Snapdragon 630 mobile platform. There will be two variants – a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM version for the US and Europe and a 4GB RAM + 64GB model for other markets.
For connectivity, the phone has Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac and supports LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/20/25/26/28/66 as well as TDD LTE bands 38 and 41. It also has NFC. In addition, the Moto X4 packs a 3000mAh battery and a USB type-C port sits at the bottom and flanking it on the right is a 3.5mm audio jack. On the camera end, there is a dual 12MP + 8MP rear cameras as well as a 16MP selfie shooter.
The device is expected to carry a retail price of Rs. 23,999, based on a recent leak. The price is significantly lower than the EUR 399 (roughly Rs. 30,300) price tag with which it was announced at IFA 2017. The Moto X4 comes in two colors – Super Black and Sterling Blue and is also coming to India as a Flipkart exclusive. We’ll bring you details from the launch here on Gizmochina.
