Unveiled just a couple of weeks ago at IFA 2017, the Moto X4 is a rather interesting mid-range smartphone from Motorola. Not only does it mark the revival of the company’s Moto X lineup, it boasts several neat features too.
While going through SIRIM’s database, we notice that Lenovo registered a device with the model number “XT1900-2” on 8 September. A quick search on Google revealed that this is in fact the new Moto X4.
Unlike Motorola’s flagship Z2 smartphones, the Moto X4 comes with an IP68-rated body, giving it dust and water resistance. Aside from that, the Moto X4 also features a pretty sleek-looking glass and metal design; we’re quite a fan of the phone’s shimmery glass back.
Other specifications of the Moto X4, on the other hand, are decidedly mid-range. It has a 5.2-inch 1080p LTPS IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 3,000mAh battery, as well as Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
In the camera department, the Moto X4 packs a dual-camera system on the back: the 12MP primary camera is paired with an 8MP wide-angle shooter, which isn’t too different from the dual-camera systems of the LG G6 and LG V30. The front-facing camera, on the other hand, is a 16MP snapper.
At the moment, we have yet to receive any official information from Motorola Malaysia on the local availability of the Moto X4. Seeing how the device have already been registered with SIRIM, we imagine it’s only a matter of time before the X4 is launched here.
