Motorola has launched its new smartphone the Moto X4 in India, that sports a water-resistant metal and glass design, dual camera and some premium Moto-specific features like Moto Voice.
The Moto X4 is priced at Rs 20,999 for the base variant that comes with 3GB RAM and 32 GB onboard storage, expandable via the micro SD card for up to 256GB. One more variant in 4GB/64GB configuration will also be available at Rs 22,999. Moto X4 will be available exclusively via Flipkart.
Moto X4 is the first phone to come with Snapdragon 630 chip in India. It has a 5.2 inch IPS display, and not an AMOLED panel like the Moto Z2 Play. The resolution is the same though, at full HD (1080p).
Moto X4 is also built on a different design philosophy that would appeal to more casual users, as per Moto. The phone has a metal frame with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on both front and back. It is IP68 water and dust resistant, immune to water up to 1.5m of depth for 30 minutes.
At the rear, the phone has a dual camera setup, put in the dial that deflects light like a jewel. The set up has a 12MP dual pixel camera with PDAF paired to a normal F2.0 lens, alongside an 8MP wide-angle camera, a setup similar to the LG G6.
At the front, the phone has a 16MP camera with F2.0 aperture, accompanied by a single LED flash.
Out of the box, the phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat but is upgradable to Android 8.0 Oreo. Moto X4 packs a 3000mAh battery and supports 4G VoLTE and dual SIM. It also has Bluetooth 5.0 which allows to connects to stream music to four different wireless speakers/earphones.
