There are no other details of the phone, but if previous reports are to believed Moto X4 will come with full metal body, 12MP camera on the a back and a 16MP selfie camera on the front.
Which segment will Moto X4 fit in the smartphone market?
With so many Moto series—C, E, G, Z Play and generic flagship Z and top-end flagship Z Force, many are confused where will the Moto X fit in a such long line up. But, going by the specifications, Lenovo's Motorola is expected to place the Moto X4 in between the Moto G5 Plus and the Moto Z2 Play.
For instance, in India there is Rs. 10,000 (roughly $156/€133) price-gap between the two aforementioned phones. If the rumoured 16MP front snapped does turn true, Motorola might also market it as selfie-centric camera, which is gaining huge traction in Asian markets, particularly in India.
Moto X4 is expected to be unveiled in early September probably during the consumer electronics trade show IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) in Germany between September 1-6.
