Lenovo-owned Motorola is teasing the launch of a new smartphone in the Indian market. Going by the teasers released by Motorola India, the smartphone is expected to be the recently announced mid-range dual camera smartphone, the Moto X4. As of now, it is still unknown when Motorola is going to launch the smartphone and the pricing details are unknown as well.
Recently, tipster Evan Blass leaked an image of the Moto X4 with Android One logo at the back. It will be interesting to see whether Motorola will launch the Android One edition of the Moto X4 in India to take on the rival Xiaomi Mi A1. To recall, the Moto X4 was first announced at the IFA 2017 show in Berlin earlier this month.
The Moto X4 settles down between the Moto Z and Moto G lineup and carries a price tag of €399 (approx. Rs. 30,500). The standout feature of the device will be the glass design. Well, the Moto X4 is not the Motorola’s first glass body smartphone, but the design of the smartphone is appealing. Furthermore, the usage of glass body allowed Motorola to add IP68 certification this time around, unlike the IP54 certification seen in earlier Moto smartphones.
The Moto X4 flaunts a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080*1920 pixels. Under the hood, the smartphone comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, coupled with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The chipset is accompanied with an Adreno 508 GPU. The Moto X4 could be the first Snapdragon 630 smartphone to launch in India.
As usual, the Moto X4 comes with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo later this year. Optics wise, the Moto X4 features two cameras at the back- a 12MP primary f/2.0 sensor with large 1.4-micron pixels, pairs with an 8MP wide-angle sensor, which is a good setup for a mid-range smartphone.
The smartphone is backed by a 3000mAh battery. Expected price for the Moto X4 in India is Rs. 20,999.
