Motorola Moto Z4 leak reveals price, corroborates specs & features
Leaked Motorola Moto Z4 press render

The Moto Z Play lineup has sold relatively well since it was first introduced almost three years ago. As a result of this, Motorola is once again planning a new model, but from the look of things it’ll be ditching the ‘Play’ branding.

Corroborating previous rumors, a new leak (via GSMArena) suggests the Motorola Moto Z4 will increase both its storage and RAM counts. Specifically, the 4/32GB and 4/64GB configurations offered by last year’s Moto Z3 Play will apparently be ditched in favor of just one 6/128GB option.

Alongside this, the smartphone is expected to arrive powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675. This should provide a pretty decent upgrade over the Snapdragon 636 found inside the Moto Z3 Play, but don’t expect to see the same flagship-level performance that’ll be offered by the Moto Z4 Force. One thing the Moto Z4 does have in common with its Force sibling, though, is the display.

According to the leaked information, the Moto Z4 will feature a large 6.4-inch OLED display that boasts very thin bezels and a tiny notch. The latter should be home to a 24.8-megapixel selfie snapper that’ll be accompanied by a 48-megapixel camera on the rear.

Like previous Moto Z smartphones, this upcoming model should support Moto Mods. The device will also ship with Android 9 Pie straight out of the box and a large 3,632mAh battery which represents a 632mAh increase over the cells found inside the Moto Z3 Play and Moto Z2 Play. Last, but certainly not least, an IP67 water and dust resistance rating is to be expected alongside a headphone jack.

The Motorola Moto Z4 is expected to arrive during the summer months and will most likely be sold through Verizon or unlocked via Motorola’s website and other retailers. Regarding its price, today’s leak suggests it’ll retail at $399 in the US, $100 cheaper than last year’s Moto Z3 Play.

UPDATE: 91Mobiles has obtained internal marketing material for the Motorola Moto Z4 which confirms most of the specifications mentioned above. Moreover, it details a long list of features including Digital Wellbeing, Google Lens, Moto Display, Moto Actions, Moto Experiences, and 5G network support through the dedicated Moto Mod. 

Regarding the cameras, as standard the rear sensor will default to a Quad Pixel mode that combines four pixels into one, thus producing a higher quality 12-megapixel shot. However, thanks to a new Night Vision mode, "incredibly sharp" 6-megapixel shots will also be possible in low-light conditions. The front selfie camera, on the other hand, will support a Group Selfie mode.

Lastly, it's claimed the Moto Z4 will support TurboCharge fast-charging and offer up to 2 days of battery life on a single charge. A specific price isn't mentioned, but the marketing material does note that it'll cost "half the price" of traditional flagships, suggesting the $399 retail price mentioned above could be accurate.

From looks alone, to Moto mods, to Moto actions, to vanilla Android, to in display finger print scanner, this one beats what ever Google had to offer on Earth. Till the pixel 4 at least.

Not a chance. Moto phones don't get the same level of updates, no unlimited photo storage and the cameras are usually mediocre at best. The pixel 3a will have a flagship level camera. Plus it looks like the pixel 3a has dual physical sim slots as well as an esim. In display fingerprint scanners suck. Choice is good though and yes this moto looks stunning! No doubt they will slap "moto" or "motorola" somewhere right in your face to ruin it. Gotta get that branding slapped onto the bezels. They won't be able to resist in the final version.

I have to say, this might be the perfect phone for my wife. She isn't a picture taker, and just wants a phone with a good battery and a big screen. Add the 2200 mAh moto mod (5832 mAh total), and she might get a week on a single charge.

The G7 only has a SD632 processor and the notch is way bigger. The bottom bezel is also bigger. Z4 also has an Amoled screen which I prefer. The G7 is definitely a good deal tho.

I’ll get it black Friday for $299. I’ll be fine with my 8 premium phones for now.

This is exactly the sort of pricing a midrange phone should have. I TRULY (desperately) hope that Samsung is smart and prices the A70 at $400-$425

Had the z2 as a cheap backup phone and wasn't expecting much. Apart from the dated look and the below par camera camera it was one of the best user experiences iv had on a phone.

Nice specs, the only thing that kills it, is the OLED display, burn in incoming
