The Moto X4 is official: dual-camera mid-ranger beauty

The Moto X4, Moto's latest mid-ranger, is now official!

Sporting a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the Moto X4 is an upper-mid-range handset powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor, clocked at 2.2GHz, and backed by a 3000 mAh battery with Turbo Charging. Other highlight features include IP68 rating for dust- and water-resistance, a dual-camera system that pairs together a 12 MP and an 8MP shooter, capable of delivering the oh-so trendy shallow depth of field simulation, affectionately referred to by many as “bokeh”, and a 16MP camera with a low-light adaptive mode.

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 X4 has Amazon's Alexa built-in, and it's accessible even when the handset is locked via a voice command. The feature is available in all regions supported by Amazon Alexa. But aside from Amazon's voice assistant, the X4 is also loaded with a bunch of sweet new features, such as Moto Key, which lets you access password-protected webpages on your PC and laptop with a simple tap on the X4, Quick Screenshot, which let's 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.

As far as looks are concerned, the Moto X4 features a familiar a glass and metal design, with Gorilla Glass taking care of both the display and back of the phone on the back and front of the device. Around the back, the dual-cam array is fitted within a circular visor that protrudes from the phone's back.

The Moto X4 launches in Europe sometime in September, starting at €399, and it's expected to hit other markets this fall.

Ughhh, those huge bezels are making this phone DOA. They need to embrace change just as LG, Samsung, Essentials, and hopefully the new iPhone 8 are making with the edge to edge displays

If I wanted bezels, I would just get a Nokia. At least they care about their devices and they have stereo speakers.

I'm pretty sure this phone's target market doesn't care about bezel-less displays.

Moto X4 has officially defeated iPhone 8 to claim the ugliest phone ever title.

Hmm... I think I'm leaning more towards the Pixel now. I don't think I could deal with a device with only 32GB of native storage, even if there is expandable storage. Also having Alexa built into the device is a turn-off. I like Amazon, but not their tech efforts, from the fire phone to the firestick, to Alexa, I just don't think they're very intuitive and well thought out devices. Thought the quick screenshot feature is a pretty nifty idea.

Moto, sony mobile, etc. make me laugh. They inssist on staying with designs of 2013. I'll never buy a phone with such design. Very not likely, unless i get one for free of course.

Couldn't agree more. Lenovo has tarnished moto brand beyond any repair.

I actually love the design, I just don't like the way the fingerprint scanner on Motorola devices look. It just looks cheap.

RIP Moto X Pure Edition. Last of its kind. Let us have a moment of silence for the Pure Edition that had a good life despite not getting updated past Marshall. *bows head* You're up Pixel 2. Just give me my guaranteed updates, fully unlocked, and stereo speakers.

Alexa? Seriously? I'm a Moto 2014 user and I was thinking about buying the new one - but why Alexa? Google Assistante is good enough. Why do we need so many different voice assistant systems?

God sake you people are obsessed with bezels they ain't that big. Who cares about bezels as long as it's good quality it's not important. I would rather have a phone that won't break easily unlike Samsung S8 etc would

I think the X4 will make a nice replacement for my 2014 Moto X. It looks pretty nice to me actually.
