Last week, Lenovo-owned Motorola officially unveiled its most-anticipated Moto X4 at IFA 2017 in Berlin. Now, Android One edition of Moto X4 has revealed online, showing the device in all its glory. Popular tipster Evan Blass released a press render of Moto X4 Android One edition, suggesting imminent launch. The render shows a back panel of the device, consisting of a rounded, protruding dual camera module, Motorola branding, and Android One branding. We don’t know at this moment whether it’ll be called Moto X4.
Xiaomi and Google recently co-developed a Xiaomi Mi 5X variant dubbed Mi A1 with A1 possibly standing for Android One. So, it’s also likely Moto X4 Android One edition could get a new name. In the past when Google initially announced Android One, all devices fell in an entry-level bracket. However, upcoming Android One handsets are also expected to fall under upper mid-range segment.
Coming back to Moto X4 Android One edition, no drastic changes are expected compared to original Moto X4 since it already runs near-stock Android. However, Android One edition will deliver faster updates and run pure stock Android with less number of pre-installed apps and features. So, Moto X4 is expected to hit Indian market in collaboration with Google.
The highlight of Moto X4, it houses 12MP+8MP dual rear cameras and 16MP selfie camera. It also comes with built-in Amazon Alexa assistant. We don’t know yet whether it remains the same in Android One edition as well. It sports a 5.2-inch 1080p screen with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Powering the handset is Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core SoC and Adreno 508 GPU for graphics.
Moto X4 offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage in the U.S. and Europe. Meanwhile, Moto X4 Android One edition is expected with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It offers IP68 certification and packs a 3,000mAh battery under the hood.
