Here's our best look at the Moto X4 yet

All eyes may be on Motorola's Z2 Force Edition, the modular Android smartphone which went up for sale earlier this week, but waiting in the wings is arguably a more interesting phone.

Motorola has been releasing a bunch of phones this year but the device many have arguably been waiting for, is a new addition to the Moto X range. But until today, we've yet to see the upcoming smartphone leak in such great detail, as picked up by.

Of course, compromises are the name of the game when you're targeting the mid-tier. There's going to be four global variants in total with subtle differences between each model but all should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and Adreno 508 GPU. Those in Asia Pacific, however, will get 4GB of RAM, it's claimed, and twice the storage. The Moto X4 is also expected to carry an IP68 water/dustproof rating and have a 3,000mAh battery.

Moto G5S will ship with a 5.2-inch full HD panel that's been coated in Corning Gorilla Glass. Finally, the images show a murdered out black Moto X4.

On the front there will be a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture for those all-important selfies. Underneath the screen there's the now traditional Moto fingerprint sensor, while the back of the phone is made of glass. So long as Moto keeps the price as midrange as its purported specs, Moto's next phone could be one of its best yet.

On the optics front, Motorola has provided the MOTO X4 with a dual camera module at the back composed of a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture and 1.4µm pixel size coupled with an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.2 aperture, 1.12µm pixel size and a 120° wide-angle lens.

Both cameras make use of phase detection autofocus, which increases the speed and accuracy at which a camera can lock focus, and they'll be able to work in conjunction to produce a depth of field effect, much like the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5. Stay tuned, we'll update you as soon as we get any other information.
