While Motorola has already been known to be into developing a new handset in the Moto X series, latest leaks courtesy of Evan Blass has shed some new light with regards to the looks of the upcoming phone.
From what is evident right away is the premium appeal that the metal clad Moto X4 will come to offer even though it would still be sitting a rung lower than the Moto Z2 Play, the flagship Motorola phone of 2017.
The phone will however be sporting conventional looks, a term coined to distinguish phones post the likes of the Galaxy S8. To elaborate further, while the Moto X4 will have a front display that seems to extend along the sides as well, leaving no room for a physical bezel, there will be signficant amount of it along the top and bottom.
So while the top will house the usual front cam which again has been bolstered to 16 megapixels, the lower end will accommodate the home button having an integrated fingerprint sensor. The rear would be sporting a neat finish with only the Motorola badging interrupting the flow along the middle and the camera cluster along the top.
The rear camera setup again is the highlight of the Moto X4 given that it now sports a dual 8- and 12-megapixel sensor, complemented by a dual LED flash. The entire rear camera cluster protrudes slightly from the surface and is accentuated along the edge with a metallic ring.
Further, the X4 will be built around a Snapdragon 630 chipset and will be featuring a 4 GB RAM along with 64 gigs of native storage. The front display will be full HD enabled while a 3,000mAh battery would be providing the power. Another interesting aspect of the X4 is that it will be IP68 rated, which means it can survive being submerged 1.5 meters under water for 30 mins at a stretch.
As for its likely launch windows, expect that to happen towards the end of the year. Pricing again will be in the mid-range segment.
