The next generation of Moto devices under the Lenovo brand, appear to be getting close to an announcement. We've seen plenty of leaks and rumors about the upcoming Moto G4 and now we're seeing even more on the Moto X4. According to +HelloMotoHK, it appears that the picture above is a render of the upcoming Moto X4. They also posted a couple of devices that appear to be DROID's for Verizon, which will be launching later in the year. Judging by the picture above, we can tell quite a few things about this upcoming device. One is that it appears to be an aluminum build with a glass front. The front looks a bit odd, with a physical button and two black dots on either side. Those dots are likely the IR blasters that are used in conjunction with Moto Display. The button there is said to be a fingerprint sensor. There's no word on whether it's a home button and fingerprint sensor or just a fingerprint sensor. We'll likely have to wait until the announcement to find out for sure.
The camera module is also fairly large, and if you look closely, it looks like all parts of the camera module are in that circle. Including the flash that's at the bottom – giving the camera a "flat tire" look, like the Moto 360. There also appears to be a couple other sensors there, perhaps a laser auto-focus sensor, which will make auto-focus much faster on this new smartphone. At the bottom though, you'll see 8 gold dots on either side of a vertical – what looks a bit like a USB Type-C – port. These may be charging contacts. So we could see some new accessories coming with the Moto X4 when it's announced.
Speaking of the Moto X4 being announced. The rumor going around right now is an August 24th announcement. Last year, Motorola announced the Moto X and Moto G at an event in July. So this would put the successors being announced over a year later. Now this is all rumors and leaks. So we'll want to take this with a grain of salt. But one thing is for sure, Lenovo will be announcing this device fairly soon.
