The first press image of the upcoming Moto X4 leaks out

A new Moto high-end smartphone is expected to arrive later this year. Dubbed Moto X4, the phone is supposed to hit the shelves just in time for the holiday season. It will also be the first non-Google handset to support the search giant's Project Fi.
We were given a glance at the phone's innards a few days ago, but now it looks like we'll have the chance to admire Moto X4's outsides. The first press images showing the upcoming smartphone has been recently leaked by Evan Blass.
As expected, the phone looks like it's covered in glass from head to toe. Another aspect that stands out is the dual-camera setup on the phone's back side. However, it appears that Motorola changed its mind and decided to go with a LED flash below the camera sensor, as opposed to above like shown in a previously leaked video.
There's no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor since the Moto X4 comes with a Home button in the front, which is supposed to house that component as well.
As far as specs go, the Moto X4 is rumored to pack a Snapdragon 630 processor inside, along with 4 or 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. Also, the smartphone will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, and it will feature IP68 certification (water and dust resistance).

Kind of a let down, disappointed that it is not the 3800mAh phone with Snapdragon 660. Now it is more similar to Z2 Play, just with a better camera and moderately better chipset traded off for the bigger SAMOLED display and Moto mods. If any reason to get this phone it would be the IP68 rating.

I'm ok with the SoC. The fact is, SD625/626 have been shown to run 1080p screens very well. This SD630 has faster memory throughput, usb3.1, Bluetooth 5.0, supports UFS storage, and a more powerful GPU over the 625/626. This chip has a beautiful balance of efficiency and performance, and will likely see no throttling whatsoever in synthetic tests. The 660 would only have less battery life, more potential heat, and only marginally better REAL LIFE graphics performance. The thing I wish didn't change was the battery capacity. I would like at least 3200mAh to ensure 1.5-2 day usage.

Meh... DISSAPOINTED! This was supposed to be an awesome Snapdragon 660 with 3800Mah battery phone, and yes... it does look like a Galaxy S7! :(

I am disappointed a little too...however, I do have to say that the SD660/3800mAh battery rumors sounded a little unrealistic for under $500, considering that this device has an IP68 ingress protection rating and the fact that manufacturing costs for things nowadays have risen a good bit...which is why smartphones like the OnePlus 5 aren't below $400 anymore, and also why ZTE hasn't and probably can't release a sequel to the Axon 7 in the same price range offering similar features and specifications. So, an SD630 and 3000mAh battery will provide very good battery life on a 5.2", 1080p device; this overall will be a good buy for under $500 as long as the display is well calibrated and the camera is comparable to the OnePlus 5. I understand the disappointment considering the seeming accuracy of the rumors, but these seem more accurate and more realistic for such a device. I just hope people don't flip out at this like they did at the OnePlus 5; a device better than anything below flagship price right now.

Yes, and I am aware there are devices that have reduced in price, like the HTC U11, but all of those have some major compromise allowing that to happen. With the U11, that compromise comes in the structure; the phone is structurally weak and physically fragile, a polar opposite of the HTC 10, with its ironclad durability in just about every way. Oh, and there's no headphone jack. The G6's compromises come in the forms that the phone is using essentially the same processor as the G5, just the slightly quicker variant (SD821), and an actually inferior camera system compared to the G5.

I still like my old Moto X 2013. The fact that this will be available on Fi means I might actually consider it. Though admittedly I am more interested in the pixel, it may come down to cost when I go to upgrade. Even though I love my stock Android, there were a few things on my Moto X that Google still can't get right on my Nexus 6P.
