Motorola today released a new smartphone in the Moto X line – the Moto X4. Last year, Motorola introduced the Moto Z line to directly replace for the Moto X range. But with the announcement of the return of the Moto X line, that assumption is no longer the case.
The Moto X4 is seemed to be designed to be a smartphone for a best-in-class experience, but it’s not exact. Instead, the Moto X4 is set at the mid-range position, with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, and a lower spec over the Moto Z2. The phone packs with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core chipset, which is popular on mid-range smartphones.
However, although the Moto X4 is only a mid-range smartphone, it can offer an overall well-rounded user experience. The Moto X4 is designed with durability in mind and appeals to those who are looking for a sturdy device. Furthermore, the Moto X4 also comes with an IP68 standard for water and dust resistance. In terms of camera, like the Moto Z2 Force, the Moto X4 also features a dual rear camera setup, including a 12-megapixel camera primary snapper with OIS and phase detection focus and another 8MP camera, accompanying with a dual LED flash. The front is the 16-megapixel selfie camera with a quite good quality shots. The rest of the other notable features include a fingerprint sensor, a microSD (up to 2TB) for the storage expandability, a 3,000 mAh battery capacity, and the pre-installed Android 7.1 (Nougat). Although Motorola has yet to confirm exact dates and prices, the Moto X4 is expected to become first available in European countries from September with the price tag of €399 (which is approximately $475 in US currency). For the U.S market, Motorola has announced that the Moto X4 will be available in the US, and other global markets later this year.
