The Moto X4 to Feature an All-Glass Build, IP68 Certification, and a Dual Rear Camera Setup
Motorola’s upcoming mid-range flagship – the X4 has leaked quite aggressively over the past week. However, a new report by AndroidAuthority takes the wraps off every spec there is to know about. For starters, the X4 will feature a relatively new design language from the company with an all-glass build and a contoured curved rear that should provide a better grip on the otherwise slippery material.
Of course, the headlining trait is the presence of two cameras on the back. Motorola hopped the bandwagon last month with the launch of the Z2 Force, and the X4 is expected to inherit the same approach as well. The arrangement includes a 12-megapixel primary lens with dual autofocus, f/2.0 aperture, and 1.4µm pixel size paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, 1.12µm pixel size and 120° field of view. As you’d expect, this would allow for relatively natural bokeh effects on your pictures. On the front, there’s a 16-megapixel f/2.0 shooter which will be mainly advertised for its abilities in low-light scenarios.
Motorola will announce a couple of variants with minor differences, although all of them will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and Adreno 508 GPU. According to the leak, the handset will come with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage in Europe, North America and Latin America and 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage in the Asia Pacific region. The rest of the hardware comprises of a 5.2-inch Full HD panel with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, an oval-shaped fingerprint sensor beneath that, 3,000mAh nonremovable battery that also comes with Motorola’s TurboCharging feature and IP68-certified water as well as dust resistance.
Two color options will be up for sale initially – Super Black or Sterling Blue. While details regarding its availability are yet to be revealed, a few rumors have suggested a launch of this month’s 24th. It will be interesting to see how the Lenovo-owned company pitches the smartphone between the Z2 Play and Z2 Force.
