The Lenovo Moto X4 is a rumored mid-range smartphone scheduled to arrive with Project Fi compatibility later this year, an answer to the prayers of many Android tech enthusiasts who are more than tired of waiting for Google to bring non-Google smartphones to the wireless carrier. As usual, when rumors like this turn up, photo leaks aren’t ever too far behind.
Renown reporter Evan Blass is always one to keep the leak tradition going, as he is known for nearly 90% of the smartphone leaks that break out on the web. Blass is back with another leak, this time of the upcoming Lenovo Moto X4.
Blass revealed a Motorola smartphone that looks rather identical to the Moto Z with its large camera ring (and hump on the back cover), along with the Motorola icon beneath it, the home button in place, and the famous clock widget that always maintains the date, temperature and time. The leaked unit also doesn’t look too far off from the presumable Moto Z2 smartphone. Motorola is maintaining the bezels on this device, though the display appears to be 2.5D with its side curves. The Lenovo Moto X4 appears to have a glassy front and back, as the material seems too shiny for a matte plastic or aluminum metal cover.
Likely specs of the upcoming mid-ranger include a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a 1,920 x 1,080p screen resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage, and microSD card expansion. 16MP and 8MP/12MP front and dual rear cameras, respectively, could grace the handset, along with IP68 water and dust resistance, a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Moto X4 could prove to be a huge boost for the mid-range market. The 3,000mAh battery capacity expected in the Moto X4 won’t rival the 5,000mAh cell of the lesser-spec’d Moto E4 Plus, but Android 7.1.1 Nougat should prove formidable for the challenge.
We’re still waiting for pricing on the handset, but all missing information should arrive in good time. Stay tuned to Droid Turf as we follow what could be the mid-range Project Fi phone we’ve all been waiting for.
