[TechLeaks] Moto X4 image leaks showing off glass back, dual camera, thin side bezels

Update: The first image of the Moto X4 has leaked (see above). It was recently posted on Twitter by Evan Blass and shows the front as well as the back of the upcoming smartphone. The device looks a lot like the rest of the Moto lineup with its large circular camera housing on the rear and the fingerprint scanner positioned on the front, below the screen. The image shows the gold version of the Moto X4, although we do expect to see it in a few other color options once it’s officially released.

One of the smartphones we’re really looking forward to from Motorola this year isn’t a refresh to the Moto Z, but rather the return of the Moto X lineup in the Moto X4. With specs and rumors flying around, Evan Blass has taken to Twitter to share the first good look at the upcoming device.

The latest addition to the Moto X lineup, the Moto X4, is expected to be a return to the Motorola that once got us excited, at least to an extent. Whereas the Moto Z line focuses on premium specs, a thin design, and Moto Mods.

However, it appears as if Lenovo is ready to give some love to the almost-forgotten Moto X line with the Moto X4, whose specifications have reportedly been leaked by famed leaker Evan Blass through VentureBeat.

According to the report, the Moto X4 will feature a 5.2-inch display and no capacitive buttons in sight – similar to previous Moto X iterations, the Moto X4 looks to feature on-screen buttons. Somewhere on the front will reportedly be a fingerprint sensor.


As for the look of the phone, it’s certainly a departure from the customizable X devices of years past. Rather, the Moto X4 offers a glass back that is very resembles of the HTC U11. The glass both on the front and back tapers off to the side meeting in the middle with a shiny metal frame.

The front of the phone is pretty typical Motorola with a front-facing camera and flash, earpiece/speaker, and a Moto G5-esque fingerprint sensor. The one big difference here is that the display is more edge-to-edge, ditching a lot of the bezel seen on other Moto phones. The rear camera is another point of interest, this time packing dual cameras with a single LED flash underneath (and yes, it looks a lot like a face).

Motorola is expected to put the X4 up for sale sometime during Q4, possibly partnering with Google to offer the device on Project Fi as a “mid-tier” option to supplement the Google Pixel line. As for specs, the most recent leaks point to a Snapdragon 630 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 3,000 mAh battery, and IP68 water/dust resistance.

As far as cameras are concerned, a 16-megapixel shooter should take decent selfies, while the 8-megapixel and 12-megapixel rear cameras should give your pictures a bit more oomph. It is unknown how the two cameras will be utilized – they could either go down the Huawei P10 route and use one of the sensors for monochrome images, or the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5 route and use the second sensor to allow for optical zoom and portrait images.
