Many Google Nexus 5X users and possibly those using the Google Nexus 6P on Google Project Fi have been waiting for such a day to come.
A day when they will have the chance to upgrade to a newer phone at about the same price of what they got close to two years ago yet the same phone can give them the same quality services they get on Project Fi. While one option has been to get the new Google Pixel or Pixel XL, these two phone’s price tags have remained a stumbling block for many Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P users just because of their steep price tags.
But this will be no more thanks to the fact that the Google Project Fi team has finally heard their cries. Apparently, there is a new phone coming up this year and just like the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and the two Pixel phones, this phone will give users the full functionality of Project Fi, but at a very affordable price, much like what the Nexus family has been used to.
The phone in question here is the Moto X4. The phone has been in the rumors for a while, but we now have the details of the expected pricing. According to reports, the Moto X4 will be valued at about $350 or maybe slightly more, which is a decent price tag, if you ask me.
In fact, at $350, the Moto X4 will be slightly cheaper than the launch price of the base model of the Google Nexus 5X, which came in priced at $379, although Google Project Fi was at some point selling it at just $199. Whether this same pricing strategy will be employed to attract more people to join Project Fi is still unknown, but even if it doesn’t, it’s still better than having to pay $649 for a Pixel phone in order to join the network.
At this point in time, the details of the Moto X4 specs are still unknown, but there’s word that the phone could follow in the footsteps of the Moto G5S Plus by giving users a dual-lens camera on the back, which should be a nifty way of attracting more people to buy the phone. Buyers will also have the option to choose from either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage and for the processors, there are still uncertainties on whether Lenovo will go for the Snapdragon 630 or the more powerful Snapdragon 660, but one thing for sure is that the Moto X4 will be a midrange model, just like the Google Nexus 5X.
