Android One Moto X4 launches on Project Fi, will be updated to Android P

Google today announced that it's bringing Android One to the US - just as recently rumored. The very first Android One smartphone to be released stateside is made by Motorola, and it's none other than the Moto X4 (first revealed at the end of August). The handset will be available on Project Fi, Google's own wireless service that relies on both Wi-Fi and LTE (thanks to partnerships with T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular).


The "Android One Moto X4", as Google is calling it, is different from the handset that Motorola will be selling only when it comes to software, as it's got Android One on board - this is the "purest form of Android", initially developed for lower-end handsets in emerging markets around the world.  


According to Google, Android One will allow owners of this Moto X4 to get an update to Android 8 Oreo by the end of 2017. Interestingly, Google even mentions that the device will be among the first to be updated to Android P (of course, this will likely happen sometime in the second half of 2018).


Highlight features of the Moto X4 include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a dual 12 MP rear camera, an octa-core Snapdragon 630 processor, and a dust- and water-resistant body.


Google says the Android One Moto X4 will be available to pre-order via Project Fi starting today, for $399. Owners of select Nexus phones can trade in their devices and receive discounts of up to $165. Moreover, folks who trade in by October 5 can earn $50 Fi credit. The Moto X4 is joining the Google Pixel and Pixel XL - the only phones that are currently available to order right away on Project Fi.


At this very moment, the Android One Moto X4 isn't listed on Project Fi's website, but it should show up later today at the source link below.

Your source link doesn't say anything about Moto X4 on Project FI. False story?

The article clearly says: "At this very moment, the Android One Moto X4 isn't listed on Project Fi's website, but it should show up later today at the source link below."

Yeah, just like G4 got updated to Oreo, Motorola is going down.

Um... What am I missing? Why is this $100 more than a G5 Plus, but with less RAM and storage?

Faster RAM, faster processor, premium materials, better camera... ? I'm on the fence about getting the Moto X4 or the Pixel, without a discount, I would be leaning more towards the pixel, but with $165 discount, and $50 credit to my Fi account, it's really a hard deal to pass up as it would cost less than $200 for me overall as I have a Nexus 6P that I wouldn't mind trading in. Plus 128 GB of expandable storage. So long as I can load my Google Play music/movies to the micro SD card then I'm sold.

Hmm... I need Google to Clarify, I got an email on this as I'm a Fi customer, they state "Enjoy your Google Assistant and unlimited high-quality photo storage right out of the box." Does this mean "Full" quality like what they offer on the Pixel, or are they simply stating the obvious photo saving options for all users of Google Photos?
