Motorola is now owned by Lenovo, as most of you know. This company has introduced three smartphones back in August, the Moto G (3rd-gen), Moto X Play and Moto X Pure / Style. The company was expected to introduce their successors in August this year, but it seems like they might unveil at least one smartphone sooner than that. Motorola has already scheduled an event in India on May 17th, and the reports claim the company might unveil the rumored Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones at that event. It is unlikely we’ll see the Moto X introduced at that event, but who knows.
That being said, the Moto X4 and the new DROID renders surfaced recently, and judging by those images, and the Moto G4 / G4 Plus leaks, the whole ‘Moto’ line of devices is in for a major redesign. It seems like the company will include a physical home button below the display, or at least a non-clickable ‘touchpad’ fingerprint scanner, similar to the ones we’ve seen included in OnePlus 2 and HTC 10. Now, following the Moto X4 render leaks, a new image surfaced, and this time around we get to see the real life image of Motorola’s upcoming flagship (its back side, that is). If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see a phone which is identical to the one showcased by the recently leaked render. The huge camera circle is placed in the upper portion of the phone’s back, and it includes the camera sensor itself, and the dual-LED flash. The Motorola branding is included below the camera, and the dimple which was included in previous models is gone altogether, which will probably upset many Motorola fans. Judging by this image, the Moto X4 will sport three physical keys on its right-hand side, and we’re guessing those are the power / lock key and volume rocker keys, though they’re interestingly placed. Judging by the placement of the physical keys, we guess this phone won’t be that big, it will probably sport a 5-inch or 5.2-inch display. It is also hard not to notice a number of POGO pins included in the lower portion of the phone’s back, we’re guessing these will be used for charging on some sort of a dock, and for accessory usage.
That is more or less it, we really don’t have any spec info to share with you when it comes to the Moto X4, but judging by this image, the phone won’t be that big, and it will be made out of metal. The Snapdragon 820 will probably fuel this device, and you can expect the company to include at least 4GB of RAM. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is expected to ship out of the box, and we’ll see what else is the company planning, stay tuned.
