Moto X4 (2017): Release Date, News and Rumors

Demonstration of the new smartphone Motorola is expected at the end of August at the exhibition IFA 2017.

Motorola (or Lenovo, whichever you like) did not release Moto X series smartphones in 2016 Instead, the devices of the Moto Z series were presented. This year, by now, we have seen new models in the E, G and Z lines, but the official announcement of the new Moto X has not yet taken place.

Release date

It is currently expected to take place in Berlin at the IFA Electronics Show which kicks off at the end of August. Perhaps the exact date of the announcement is August 31. A well-known Twitter source under the nickname @evleaks published an image of a smartphone, but its authenticity is unknown.

After that, the Android Authority website, citing its exclusive source, confirmed the accuracy of the information.


Specifications Moto X4 written by Android Authority and VentureBeat:

Some sites confuse Moto G5s with Moto X4, while others publish benchmarks Geekbench and GFXBench. This is false information, as model number XT1789 refers to the Moto Z2 Force, at least in China.

Design and specifications

Chinese social network Baidu demonstrated a smartphone Moto X4. From this video, you can conclude about using the processor SNAPDRAGON 660, although other sources say about the Snapdragon 630 model, 4/64 GB memory, of the fingerprint scanner and battery capacity of 3880 mAh.

Video resolution is low, but it seems that the camera lenses were specifically blurred.

The only reason for this could be desire to hide the fact that the camera is double. The image that fell into the network does not show it is clearly, but it can be a newly announced Moto G5S.

The third photo provides information on hardware characteristics, including 3 GB of memory, although another data leak indicates 4 GB. MSM8953 processor designation means Snapdragon 625, the model number of the XT1801 smartphone.

Judging by these images and specifications, Moto x4 has a metal case, but it is a smartphone of the average price category in the interval between Moto G and Moto Z.

Android Authority suggests that of the metal case will be glass elements whose bends will create a glow. Photos from this publication are shown below, at the moment they are considered the most accurate.

Presumably, a panel of IPS is used here, although the option with amoled is not excluded. Rumors speak about the use of 3D glass, but it does not give tips on the panel.

One of the last leaks is talking about the slot of MicroSD for the memory card, other images show the headphone connector 3.5 mm and USB-C.


Twitter user Roland Kwandt argues that in Europe a model with a memory volume of 32 GB will be sold for 350 euros. In terms of rubles it will mean more than 25,000 rubles.

In this price range of competitors, the last year's device OnePlus 3T will be one of them.
