On the memory side, we have a good 4Gigs of LPDDR4X RAM, 64GB of expandable native storage, which can hold up to 256GB micro sd cards. This time the Moto X4 also gains proper water and dust proofing and not just, splash resistant.
Moreover, the Moto X4 now packs a Dual-Camera setup on the rear, which comes in at 12 mega pixels each. Interestingly, this also features the same RGB and Monochromatic sensors and should do all the same tricks like its elder modular cousin; the Moto Z force edition. Besides that there’s also a Dual-Tone LED flash above the two sensors. For selfie lovers, the X4 sports a 16 mega pixel snapper along with a Selfie flash
The most notable change is that the X series now shares its design language with the Z series. The difference is in the rear with the Moto X4 now has a 3D Glass, which also bends on the sides and flushes seamlessly with the metallic side frame.
According to rumours, the device is expected to retail for 350 Euros to 400 Euros, unlocked. We could see the Moto X4 probably at IFA as there aren’t any events scheduled by Motorola, except for the 29th August Moto G5S Plus launch in India.
