Moto X4 leaks in all its glory.

Update, August 11: This post was last updated with all the latest info about the Moto X4.

Android Authority has a new image (below) showing a press render of the Moto X4 in both Super Black and a rather striking Sterling Blue color choices. It also reports the phone will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, corroborating earlier information. The phone is said to be available with 32GB of storage (presumably expandable via MicroSD) and 3GB of RAM in North America, Latin America, and Europe, and 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM in Asia.

The front-facing camera on the device is said to be a 16-megapixel, f/2.0 aperture unit with a 1.0µm pixel size for some serious selfie action. The primary rear camera is a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture and 1.4µm pixel size unit paired with an 8-megapixel, f/2.2 aperture sensor and 1.12 µm pixel size and 120-degree field of view. The combination is likely to include the same dual-camera features as the Moto Z2 Force, including the depth of field effects and superb black and white photos.

The Moto X4 is said to come with a 3,000 mAh battery, a large amount by Moto standards. Paired with the battery efficient Snapdragon 630, battery life on the device should be quite good. The phone will also include Moto's TurboCharging feature for fast top ups and will be rated IP68 for dust and water resistance, a feature that is not even on the flagship Z2 Force. There's no pricing information yet, but based on the specifications I'd wager it to fall somewhere between the Moto Z2 Play and the Z2 Force.


Motorola's Moto X line has taken a back seat as the company has focused on the modular Moto Z line, but that looks to be changing soon. We already know Motorola is coming out with a fourth Moto X, but a leak from Brazilian site Tudocellular, which obtained images as it passes through the country's telecommunications agency, confirms a few key features for the device.

The leaked photos confirmed some features of this year's Moto Z devices will find their way to the Moto X line, including the Z2 Force's dual camera setup. There's no indication what the second sensor will be used for, but it is likely to be used as a monochromatic sensor like the Moto Z2 Force. The leaked also shows the device is 16 cm by 8 cm, or approximately 6.3 inches by 3.15 inches. This lines up with @evleaks' earlier report that the phone will feature a 5.2 inch 1080p display. The leaks show a glossy black body, though it is unclear if that is glass or plastic.

The photos also show Motorola's pill shaped front fingerprint sensor that has become a staple of their devices this year, and it's very likely to include the same gesture support current fingerprint sensors enjoy. The phone is rumored to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery and Android 7.1.1 with Moto's enhancements on top. Finally, the phone is rumored to be available to use with Project Fi, which would make it the first non-Google phone to be officially supported by the carrier. Most importantly, the leaks show a 3.5 mm headphone jack for those that don't want to live the #donglelife.

There's no telling on when the Moto X4 will be announced or released, but it is expected to land in Q4 of this year. Are you planning to pick up the Moto X4? Let us know down below.
