Here are more pictures of the Moto X4 before the August 24 announcement

The Moto X4, Lenovo's next mid-range Android smartphone set to be unveiled on August 24, leaked earlier this month. Several live pictures, as well as a couple of press images, have been published online before the device was even announced.

Also, we know quite a lot about the Moto X4's specs, so the only thing that remains a mystery is when the smartphone will hit the shelves and which countries will get it first.

Before Lenovo unveils the Moto X4, we have two more pictures showing the forthcoming device, which show the front and back sides of the phone. Unlike the previously leaked images, these ones show a powered up Mo X4, unless it's just a well-made dummy unit.

As some of you probably know by now, the Moto X4 is supposed to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The Asia Pacific countries will get a slightly improved version of the Moto X4, which includes 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other highlights of the Moto X4 is the dual-camera setup (12-megapixel RGB camera + 8-megapixel f/2.2 wide-angle lens camera), as well as the impressive 16-megapixel selfie snapper.

A fingerprint sensor will be hidden under the Home button and some versions of the phone might come with dual-SIM support. The Moto X4 will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and it will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

Last but not least, the Moto X4 is rumored to sell for €350 in Europe and around $400 in the United States. We also know the smartphone will be initially launched in Latin America.

It looks like a nice phone, but at the same time, you have the Moto G5 which I just bought on sale yesterday for my daughter for $240 from Best Buy with an ever so slightly less impressive processor, but with more RAM, double internal storage, identical batteries, FM radio, same screen size & resolution.... It would appear to me that you pay a premium for less hardware in a pretty package. I'm a bit disappointed, I guess I'll be going for the Pixel 2 after all.

Not really less hardware; it's all in how you look at it. The SD630 offers MANY improvements over the 625 technologically and has a GPU that's a good deal faster, and while it is 3/32 as far as RAM/storage go, the RAM is DDR4 instead of DDR3, and the storage is probably UFS. The X4 has NFC, and sure, the screens are probably the same (I think the Moto X4 is gonna have an LCD), the X4 will have ingress protection (IP68), probably better cameras due to the upgraded ISP in the 630, and USB-C. Also of note: the selfie cam is better. It gives the illusion of paying a premium for the hardware in a pretty package, but really, the added cost comes in with all of the little things that have been upgraded with the X4; kinda like the OnePlus 5 to the OnePlus 3T almost. Oh, and part of the price hike that will happen is due to that pretty package; a metal and glass sandwich of a phone costs a lot more than a plastic and metal phone.

Yeah, I agree. I was just hoping for a slightly bigger battery. 3200mAh would have made this great for me. I have to take a look at the yotaphone 3, as well as the LG V30. I'm in the mood for a high-end if the mid-range is boring this year. With the Guy's price down this soon in the game, here's to hoping the V30 will drop by December!

Well, to me it's less of a phone because a lot of the improvements have little influence on my overall experience of a smartphone. I'm not a power user, I don't do games aside from Sudoku, and from my initial experience with the Moto G5 Plus, the phone was plenty fast with its processor and RAM. The things that impact me most would by the storage limitations and though I've never had it before, the FM radio, which I think is an awesome feature. The only thing is I'm on Google Fi and the G5 isn't an option so it's between the Moto X4 and the Pixel 2.

You make a great point about about X4 vs G5, but I really think that Moto's just releasing too many phones... This phone should have been the G5S+ or maybe they should have not made the X4 altogether. If this phone ends up at $400, I think you have too seriously look at buying a OnePlus 5 instead. $79 for double the ram, the ACTUAL best SOC on the market right now, full unibody, USB-C, (likely) better photos... If the X4 had the 660 and 4GB, maybe I'd budge for 400, but that number puts it too close an actual flagship phone for that spec sheet, imo.

I'll pass. The Moto X Pure Edition was their high point and I don't think this will compare to it.

32GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM. It's not bad, but it's not exciting either.

With design like that Lenovo can keep it to themselves.
