The Moto X4 will also perhaps be the first Android One device that'll launch in the United States, since smartphones under the program are typically only launched in developing markets such as India or some countries in Asia. You might recall that when Google initially announced Android One at Google I/O in June 2014, the phones were entry level models designed for smartphone hungry markets where consumers could not afford mid-range or high-end phones. The other day, reliable tipster Evan Blass tweeted a leaked render of what apparently is a new Motorola entry to the Android One program. If this leak turns out to be true, the device will come with even fewer pre-installed apps and faster updates directly from Google.
Motorola made their new Moto X4 smartphone official earlier this month and now it looks like the company could launch an Android One version of the handset in the US. The duo is also planning an Android One device.
There are reports that the Moto X4 Android One edition will launch around the same time as Google's next Pixel. Android One aside, the Moto X4 is a premium looking device. The device is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508GPU. And, of course, it's quite possible the Moto X4 Android One edition runs a pure version of Android mobile OS.
So this means that a device that is a part of the Android One Program will be receiving timely updates directly from Google and that too for 2 years. The phone comes with two storage and RAM variants: one sports 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while the other features a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The phone features a 16 Megapixel and 4 Megapixel of front facing camera for selfies and video calling.
The phone by Lenovo comes with a 5.8-inch 1080p display, it has a 3,000 mAh battery with Turbo Power support, and it is resistant to dust and water according to its IP68 certification.
Talking about the connectivity options, the Moto X4 offers pretty much all types of connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11.ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC and USB Type-C port. Evan Blass has leaked a photo of the special variant, but it's not clear if it'll have the same specs as a regular Moto X4.
