Moto X4: You’ve seen the specs, now come the leaked pics

The Moto X4 reportedly broke cover less than 24 hours ago with a leaked spec sheet promising an upper mid-range handset with a dual camera and the latest version of Android.

Now the same source has perhaps given us our first look at the returning X-Series.

Evan ‘@evleaks’ Blass tweeted an image of the purported Moto X4, showcasing the two cameras, along with a sleek, glass-backed design and a fingerprint sensor baked into the home button.

The device (previously dubbed the Moto X 2017) looks to have a thin metal frame and an display that runs edge-to-edge horizontally.

Conspicuous by its absence is the magnetic Moto Mods connector, which confirms Lenovo is differentiating the X range from the Moto Z.

It’s an interesting decision, seeing as the company is looking to build interest in the growing range of modular accessories.

According to yesterday’s report, the Moto X4 will arrive towards the end of the year with an octa-core Snapdragon 620 processor running at 2.2GHz and coupled with 4GB of RAM.

The 5.2-inch full HD screen will show off Android 7.1 Nougat, while there’ll also be a 3,000mAh battery, IP68 water resistance and 64GB of internal storage, plus microSD.

The rear cameras will be 8-megapixels and 12-megapixels respectively, according to Blass, while the front-facing selfie cam will be a whopping 16-megapixels.

If and when it arrives, the Moto X4 will be the successor to 2015’s excellent Moto X Style, which was billed as a premium offering, and packed a QHD display alongside a Snapdragon 808 processor.

Will this be a triumphant Moto X rebirth after some time away from the smartphone scene? Lend us your thoughts in the comments below.
