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

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.

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.

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
