From early this year, we got a bunch of rumours and leaks of Motorola Moto X4. It was said to be a premium mid-range device and also it is going to be a comeback of “Moto X” series after Moto X Force. So today at the Motorola/Lenovo’s event at IFA 2017, they made the Moto X4 official. As rumoured it is a premium mid-range device and almost all specifications are same as what we have got till now via leaks & rumours. Now let’s have a look at all ‘Official’ specs and see if there’s something new or changed!!
Let’s start with the built, as you can see from the image above you will notice that this phone looks one of the most premium Motorola phone till date. On the front there are sensors, earpiece, Moto logo, front camera and LED flash.
Below is the 5.2inch display and rounded fingerprint sensor along with main microphone below the display. On the back you will see a very premium glass finishing which seems like it’s a reflective glass, also it had Gorilla Glass 3 protection here as well. There’s a Dual Camera Setup in horizontal way along with dual tone LED flash.
Both cameras and LED flash are surrounded by a metal ring which also looks very premium. Below is the Motorola logo and another mic at the bottom of the back. On the left there’s nothing and volume button + power button on the right. On the top there’s only SIM card slot and the bottom contains 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C Port, and speaker grill. The sides are made up anodized aluminium frame. This phone also has IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. The phone weights at 163 grams and has thickness of 8mm.
Now coming to the specs, this Moto X4 sports a 5.2” Full HD 1080p IPS LCD display with 424 ppi and Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. It comes with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 660 octa core processor clocked at 2.2Ghz with Adreno 508 GPU. It comed with two RAM/storage variants ; 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB. Both are expanding via MicroSd Card upto 256GB.
It runs on Android 7.1.1 nougat with the Android Oreo update expecting soon. The battery is a 3000mAh one and it supports Motorola’s 15W Rapid charging. It has all connectivity options like 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0 , NFC, FM Radio and Type C 1.0 port. A typical rounded fingerprint sensor of 2017 Motorola phones is present here. As many smartphone OEMs are going for their custom artificial intelligence system, Motorola is here with Amazon’s Alexa AI technology. Also all Motorola features like Moto actions are present here.
Now let’s look at details of the USP of this phone, the Camera. This Moto X4 has Dual 12MP+8MP Rear Camera Setup. 1st 12MP sensors has f2.0 lens, 1.4um pixel size and dual pixel autofocus. The secondary 8MP sensor has 120° wide angle lens, f2.2 lens, PDAF and 1.12um pixel size. The secondary camera can capture photos in bokeh mode, selective black & white, background replacement, and ultra wide angle shot. There’s a dual tone LED flash as well. This setup can record videos up to 4k resolution. There’s a 16MP shooter on the front with f2.0 lens and LED flash. It comes with a adaptive low-light mode, which combines all pixels to get more light to get more details, but the resolution gets reduced to 4MP.
This phone comes in two colours; Super Black and Sterling Blue. Below are the details of pricing and availability of this phone:
- The Moto X4 is priced at €399 in Europe.
- It will be available in Europe in September. Worldwide later this fall.
- No exact details on availability and pricing in other regions are informed.
So that’s all the information we have as of now. Personally speaking this phone looks very premium and it might be a very good deal if the price will be in control. But I have to say that Motorola has implemented some very good features in it’s Dual Camera Setup. It has pretty much all features of Dual Cameras in smartphones.
