The Moto X4 has gotten leaked in an in-depth expose by noted leakster Evan Blass, revealing its specifications and release timeline. The handset has been part of the rumor mills for quite a while now, but a person with knowledge of Motorola’s plans asserts that most of these reports are inaccurate.
Motorola’s apparently taking inspiration from the original Moto X for the Moto X4. The older device didn’t push the bar when it came to specs, choosing to focus on providing an excellent user experience at an affordable price instead. The new smartphone may follow the same line of thinking by incorporating middle-of-the-road features highlighted by a dual camera system.
The Moto X4 could be one of the very first Motorola phones to get a pair of shooters stuck to its back. The module might consist of a 12MP and 8MP lens. A 16MP selfie snapper will probably take care of things up front. Under the hood, there could be a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 630 processor ticking away.

The aluminum-made Motorola offering is also expected to feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display. Memory capacities are apparently going to max out at 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, with extra space possible through a microSD card slot. Power will probably be delivered via a 3000mAh battery.
Other top specs include IP68 protection from dust and water attacks and a front-mounted fingerprint reader which is capable of recognizing simple gestures to mirror the functionality of the on-screen navigation buttons. Interestingly, the Moto X4 is also set to become the first non-Google phone to gain support for its Project Fi network.
Motorola is probably going to announce the Moto X4 in the fourth quarter of the year, just in time for the holiday shopping season. Stay tuned for more on the handset till then.
