Freshly leaked Moto Z4 render shows off insanely thin profile, resurrected headphone jack
The foldable Motorola Razr is without a doubt the brand's most highly anticipated device expected to see daylight sometime over the next few months, but obviously, the Lenovo-owned company has a bunch of other stuff in the pipeline as well, including an entry-level Moto E6 and high-end (ish) Moto Z4

While we're still not 100 percent certain the idea of a Moto Z4 Play has been abandoned, yet another leaked render of a handset presumed to be the "standard" Z4 is today showcasing a familiar modular design with a couple of interesting revisions. Just like previous leaks, this suggests a modern in-display fingerprint reader will replace the more conventional side-mounted biometric recognition method found on both the Z3 and Z3 Play.

Of course, that's not necessarily a good thing in terms of fingerprint scanning speed and reliability, but it's only fair to wait and see what Motorola can do to improve that stuff in real-life scenarios. Another big change is the reduction of the Z3 and Z3 Play's horizontal screen bezels, which are almost completely eliminated and replaced with a sleek waterdrop-style notch.

Speaking of sleek, today's (ev-) leaked imagery reveals the incredibly thin profile of the Moto Z4, which might be even slimmer than the 6.8 mm Moto Z3 and Z3 Play. Despite that insanely delicate design choice, it looks like the beloved 3.5 mm headphone jack will be making a comeback, positioned next to a USB Type-C port, with a speaker curiously located at the top of the handset rather than the bottom side.

Another previously rumored tidbit that gains further "confirmation" today is the presence of a single rear-facing camera, along with a swanky "batwing" Motorola logo and 16-pin connector for Moto Mods at the back of the Moto Z4. While Evan Blass is keeping all specifications under wraps, we already "know" that imaging sensor is set to be equipped with a full 48 megapixels, while the single selfie shooter doesn't sound like a pushover either, with 25MP capabilities.

The Moto Z4 is also expected to feature a Snapdragon 675 processor and 3,600 mAh battery, which would make it a decent... upper mid-range device. As such, the world probably doesn't need a Z4 Play variant.
