Upgraded Motorola Moto X4 (with 6 GB of RAM) to be launched in February
Lenovo and Motorola Mobility are getting ready to release a new edition of the Moto X4, at least in India. According to Motorola India, the upcoming Moto X4 smartphone runs Android 8 Oreo out of the box, being "faster, smarter, and sharper" than the 2017 model. At launch, last year's Moto X4 - pictured above - ran Android 7 Nougat, though an update to Android Oreo is now available for it.
While Motorola isn't confirming this, additional sources have it that the Moto X4 2018 should feature 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space. A superior processor (Snapdragon 636 instead of Snapdragon 630) could also be on board. Depending on market, the current X4 offers 3 GB of RAM paired with 32 GB of storage space, or 4 GB of RAM paired with 64 GB of storage space. Thus, the new Moto X4 should bring a RAM boost of at least 2 GB - enough to make it faster.
The "all new Moto X4", as Motorola is calling it, will go on sale in India on February 1, for a price that isn't known yet. It's not clear if the upgraded smartphone will also be released in the US, but we don't see why it shouldn't.
As previously reported, a mysterious Motorola Moto X5 may also be in the making, although this will probably not be available before the second half of 2018.
