The handset was first unveiled globally at IFA 2017 in Berlin. The unique feature of this device is that it supports both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa as a voice-based assistant. The launch of Amazon Echo speakers and Amazon Alexa Voice Services earlier this month has made it possible, and the Moto X4 will take it to another level.
The Moto X4 sports a metal unibody design and an anodized aluminium frame with the 3D rear contoured design. There is a Corning Gorilla Glass on both front and backside. The fingerprint sensor is embedded on the home button on the front. The device measures 148.35×73.4×7.99mm and weigh 163 grams. The handset features both the USB Type-C port and the 3.5mm audio jack which is placed below the handset. The Moto X4 features a 5.2-inch FHD (1080×1920 pixels) LTPS IPS display with a pixel density of 424ppi.
Under the hood, it sports an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor which is clocked at 2.2 GHz with Adreno 508 GPU. Along with that, we are getting 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory which is expandable to 2 TB via a micro SD card. The device is backed by a 3000 mAh battery which Motorola claims 6 hours of power in 15 minutes with the 15W TurboPower charger.
On the optics department, the device features a combination of dual cameras at the back- a 12 megapixel with f/2.0 aperture and 1.4-micron pixels and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor with a 120-degree field of view, f/2.2 aperture, and 1.12-micron pixels. The camera also can recognize objects like cards and automatically add them to the phone book. The camera app takes some Snapchat and Instagram inspiration in adding the ‘Face Filters’. Camera modes include Ultra-wide shot, depth detection, professional mode, selective focus etc. The front side gets a 16-megapixel selfie sensor with flash support, f/2.0 aperture, and 1-micron pixels. Looking at the specs, this smartphone looks pretty good from a camera perspective.
Other connectivity options include NFC, dual-band WiFi (2.4GHz and 5GHz),4G LTE support, Bluetooth 5.0, GLONASS and more. The phone was priced at 399 EUR in Europe which is around Rs 30,000 in India. The Moto X4 is available in two colours: Super Black and Sterling Blue colour. New information about the device will be released soon
