Moto X4 Android 8.1 Oreo kernel source code disseminated by Motorola
Motorola today released the Android 8.1 Oreo kernel code for the Moto X4. With the code, developers will be able to write custom ROMs and recoveries for the version of the phone running Android 8.1 Oreo. Last month, Motorola released the Android 8.0 Oreo kernel source code for the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus. The Moto G6 Play Android 8.0 source code was published in May.

The Moto X4 was released last October and is available from Motorola, Best Buy and B&H for $349.99. The handset comes unlocked and will work for the four major U.S. carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint). Unlike most Motorola phones, the X4 has an IP certification rating of IP68, which allows it to be submerged in up to almost 5-feet of water for as long as 30-minutes, and escape unscathed. It also carries a dual-camera setup in back and is integrated with Amazon's virtual personal assistant Alexa.

The Moto X4 for Project Fi users was updated to Android 8.1 in May. The retail and Amazon Prime variants of the phone received the update last month.
