Motorola unveils Moto X4 at IFA 2017

31 August 2017 4

Motorola has finally made Moto X4 official at IFA 2017. This will be the fourth generation of the X series smartphone from the company. Moto X4 is essentially a camera beauty with impressive specs that comes with a upper-mid-range price tag. (Full spec sheet at the end)

The phone packs a 5.2-inch FHD 1080p display, Snapdragon 630, clocked at 2.2 GHz, powered by a 3,000 mAh battery with a support for Turbo Charging. The phone has IP68 water resistance and comes with a 12MP + 6MP dual cameras setup which could easily become the highlight here. The dual camera setup obviously allows the trendy "bokeh" effect to play which essentially is the shallow depth of field effect. The front camera is a 16MP shooter and comes with a low-light adaptive mode. On the outside, the phone has a familiar Gorilla Glass front and back with metal underneath the glass on the back. Take a look at the phone below.

The Moto X4 has built in Amazon Alexa voice assistant which can be summoned via a voice command when the phone is locked. Apart from the fancy assistant, Moto X4 packs a number of gimmicks: Moto Key, which lets you access password-protected web pages on your PC and laptop with a simple tap on the X4, Quick Screenshot, which lets you take a quick screen grab by tapping the display with three fingers, and a new wireless audio streaming option that lets you connect the phone to up to 4 wireless speakers simultaneously.

In the US and Europe, the X4 comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, while other regions may get a version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space, but there's no official info regarding the matter right now. The phone comes with a price tag of €399 (~ $474). The phone is expected to hit Europe sometime in September with other markets seeing it this fall.
