Motorola Moto X4 renders leak, suggest August 24th unveiling

Motorola Moto X4 renders leak, suggest August 24th unveiling
A tweet from NWE editor Steve Hemmerstoffer allegedly displays a pair of renders of the fourth-generation Motorola Moto X, which will apparently be named the Motorola Moto X4. Yesterday, tipster Evan Blass confirmed that the image of the handset leaked in December is showing the "real thing." The handset features a large round camera on the back with a fingerprint scanner on the home button. The latter is similar to the one found on leaked images of the Motorola Moto G4 Plus. In  addition, it appears that there is a dock connector on the back which means that some type of docking accessory will be offered.

According to Hemmerstoffer, the Motorola Moto X4 will be unveiled August 24th. You might wonder how he reached that conclusion. Inside information? Ouija board? Algorithm based on the dialogue balloons used on the Luann comic strip? Nope. It actually is the date shown on the Moto X4 screen in the renders.

Sure, we can let you in on a little secret that we have used for years. Keep in mind that it doesn't always work, but quite often a manufacturer will publish renders or photographs of an unannounced model with the unveiling date on the screen. We guess that research has indicated that this sparks some sort of response from the potential phone buyer. We also can tell you how we keep our nails so short to improve typing on our computer keyboards, but we will save that for another day.

Meanwhile, use your pencil to circle August 24th on your calendar. 

Thanks for the tip!

I really couldn't care about bezels, but GOOD LORD what is that puny square pimple on the front with those humongous dots besides it WHAT THE HECK - it's hideous! And they really couldn't have catched on the idea of putting fingerprint sensor on the back where previous Moto phones had that special dimple with the Motorola's logo!!! OH MY GOD people were BEGGING for that to happen, but look at this mess. and just look at all of those exposed sensors on white model, its almost like a polka dot pattern goodness gracious there's no escape from this hell, not even live hands-on photos can save this monstrosity. this ruined my weekend. please tell me that motorola didn't design this.

just noticed that the huge circle on back (with the camera and 2-LED's) is actually protruding a lot. (see 2nd picture) tfw you thought that things couldn't have gotten any worse.
