Moto X4 With Dual Rear Cameras, Aluminum Body And IP68 Certification Shows Up In Leaked Render
A couple of months ago, a notorious leaker revealed on Twitter that the official name of the Moto X 2017 is Moto X4. This time, Evan Blass shared some juicy details about the upcoming mid-range smartphone including some of its specs and its supposed release date.
In his VentureBeat report, Blass mentioned that some of the previous rumors about the Moto X4 were false. He also said that the new Moto X device will be similar to its predecessors as it will come with "top-of-the-line components for top-notch user experience" despite being affordable.
According to his source, the Moto X4 will come with an aluminum body and will sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display. The Moto X4 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. The chipset has eight cores and a speed of 2.2GHz. Other features of the Moto X4, as reported by Blass, include 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in memory, and a 3,000mAh battery. It will also run on Android 7.1 Nougat and will have an IP68 certification meaning it will be completely water and dust proof.
The smartphone's main feature is its cameras. On its rear is a dual camera set-up with 8 and 12 megapixels. The Moto X4 will also have an impressive 16-megapixel front-facing shooter. Another high-end feature on the mid-range X4 is the fingerprint sensor which can recognize simple gestures aside from unlocking the handset.
The Moto X4 will also be the first smartphone outside of Google that will have Project Fi, The Verge reported. Project Fi is Google's mobile virtual network operator or MVNO, a pay-as-you-go wireless service. This service will allow the Moto X4 to effortlessly connect via Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular, or by Wi-Fi hotspots.
Blass, aka @evleaks, also reported that the Moto X4 will make in time for the holiday season and probably for Black Friday, as well. The mid-range handset will supposedly be launched in the fourth quarter of this year.
