The upcoming Moto X4 will mark the first Android One smartphone to release in the United States. Motorola and Google have officially confirmed that the Android One branded Moto X4 will soon hit US shores with a price tag of $399.
The handset will be available in Black and Silver color options and is now open for pre-orders in the US. The Moto X4 with Android One branding will arrive on Google’s Project Fi wireless carrier which uses Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular network.
The handset will offer a pure, unadulterated, stock Android experience thanks to the Android One OS on-board, making sure users get guaranteed updates for at least two years. It’s the same operating system Google deploys on its flagship Pixel range of handsets.
Put simply, the Android One OS is not tweaked by manufacturers with custom Android skins we usually come across in most smartphones. For instance, HTC smartphones come with a slightly tweaked version of Android with their ‘Sense UI’. Though, that won’t be the case with the upcoming Moto X4. As the OS would remain untouched and will lack the usual Moto gestures we’ve seen in Motorola smartphones.
In terms of specs, the Moto X4 will largely feature the same specs found on the standard Moto X4. These include a 5.2-inch Full HD display along with a 3000mAh battery. Under the hood, it gets powered by the Snapdragon 630 processor and will be available in two RAM and storage variants.
The 3GB RAM version will come with 32GB inbuilt storage, while the 4GB RAM edition will feature 64GB onboard storage. The device will sport a dual camera setup featuring 12MP and 8MP sensors. For selfies, the handset features a 16MP front-facing shooter with LED flash and f/2.0 aperture.
Elsewhere, the Moto X4 also offers Bluetooth 5.0 which allows users to stream music wirelessly to up to four Bluetooth speakers or headphones simultaneously.
