The next in the series, the Moto X4 has passed FCC certification.
The smartphone has been in the news for many days now and with promising specifications, price tag it is all set to be yet another great launch from the house of Motorola.
The company has been going on a very strong run ever since they released their Motorola Moto G 1st gen smartphones. The newest Moto X4 sounds like an mid-range device based on the specifications revealed so far. While there may be some changes when the official announcement is made, it won’t be too drastic as multiple sources and retailers have confirmed what to expect from the upcoming launch.
In most scenarios, a smartphone is sent to the FCC for certification a month or two before its official launch. Motorola may not delay the launch of the X4 by 2 months but might rather do it in September. It will take some time for the device to be eventually rolled out to all regions globally. The phone was earlier rumored to get launched in the fourth quarter of 2017 and the certification confirms that everything is going as planned.
The FCC listing has also confirmed the hardware specifications of the Moto X4 smartphone. It features a smaller and compact 5.2-inch display with 1920×1080 resolution. A surprising and cool addition is that the device sports an AMOLED display which should produce deep blacks and provide the best contrast making it a great device for multimedia lovers.
Under the shell, the phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor combined with 4GB of RAM and has 3,000 mAh battery. The battery isn’t too big but assuming that the phone to get updated to Android O operating system in a short time and uses battery optimization techniques, it should easily run for an entire day without issues. The phone sports a dual 12 megapixel camera in the rear that should deliver close to DSLR quality pictures and a big 16 megapixel front facing camera for superb selfies.
Being the 2017 phone it is, Moto X4 has a USB Type C port with fast charging capabilities and thankfully a 3.5mm audio jack. You can still use all your headphones without having to use an adapter. The phone will run on Android 7.1.1 out of the box and will be the first non-Google phone to support Project Fi. It’s pricing is expected to be close to the Nexus 5X or maybe even lower making it readily affordable for most.
