Lenovo-owned Motorola has long been rumoured to launch a new smartphone in the Moto X series, which is expected to be called the Moto X4. After a hoard of leaks last month, a new leaked image of the Moto X4 has surfaced. There is another leak, which claims to reveal the exact launch date of the Moto X4.
Leakster Evan Blass shared an image of the purported Moto X4. If true, the smartphone will feature an aluminium body, and what looks like Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge like curved displays. Also, the leaked image shows the Moto X4 sporting a horizontally placed dual-camera setup, accompanied by a LED flash right beneath it.
On the front, the leaked image shows the smartphone featuring a home button, which presumably doubles up as a fingerprint sensor. Besides, from the little hint of curves along the bottom edge of the alleged Moto X4, we can see the smartphone retaining the 3.5mm audio jack. While Motorola hasn’t revealed anything yet, reports claim that the Moto X4 will make its debut in the fourth quarter of the year.
From previous leaks, the Moto X4 is believed to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz, which is accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The smartphone is expected to feature a 5.2-inch full HD display and will run on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.
For photography, the Moto X4 has been reported to come with a combination of an 8 megapixel and a 12 megapixel sensor at the back.
The Moto X4 is believed to be fuelled by a 3,000mAh battery, and come with an IP68 certification, which means the phone will be dust resistant and can be submerged underwater in a maximum depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes.
