Moto X4 was recently unveiled at the IFA 2017 event in Berlin and now its look-alike Moto branded phone has leaked online with an Android One Logo imprinted on its rear panel.

The latest leak comes from the prolific tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), who has recently tweeted the image of the Motorola phone carrying the Android One logo on its back.  

It is now being speculated if this could be the US's first Android One phone, which is in line with earlier rumors pointing to Google's Android One program coming to America. Meanwhile, 9To5Google has claimed the Moto X4 (with Android One logo) is indeed an US model that's leaked just ahead of the upcoming launch.

Moto X4 is also touted to be one of the first few devices to support Project Fi out-of-the-box and Google could be marketing the phone in the US to gauge the local consumer interest in its new Android offering.

The Moto X4 is expected to retail around $400 in non-US countries while its US price is still a mystery. However, the smartphone is expected to hit the local retail shelves sometime in October or November.

Coming to the specifications, the Android One Edition of Moto X4 is likely to incorporate the same features as its regular variant. In other words, it gets a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 630 processor, 3 or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, an 8MP or 12MP dual rear camera, a 16MP front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh battery and IP68 rated dust and water resistance.

Google will be rolling out the stock version of Android to Moto X4 users in the US for the first time. Are you excited? Do let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
