After launching the Mi A1 Android One smartphone in collaboration with Xiaomi in India, Google is taking the project to the US with the Moto X4.
If you are in the US, you need to have a Project Fi connection to get your hands on the new smartphone. This marks the first Android One and non-Google phone with Project Fi support to make its way to the United States.
As of now, the smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Given the promise from Android One of timely software updates, Moto has said that they would roll-out Oreo by the end of 2017.
The specs remain the same as the regular Moto X4. It sports a 5.2-inch full-HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top of it. It runs on the Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor manufactured on a 14 nm process for better efficiency, coupled with Adreno 508 GPU and 3 GB RAM. The 32 GB onboard storage can be expanded up to 2 TB using an external SD card.
Motorola has also included a dual camera setup on the back of the device with a 12 MP dual-pixel autofocus camera alongside a secondary 8 MP wide-angle camera. When it comes to the selfie shooter, the phone has a 16 MP camera with an LED flash.
Unlike other phones in the same price segment, Moto X4 has IP68 water and dust resistance. The 3000 mAh battery supports Turbo-charging as well with the fast charger bundled within the box.
In the US, the Android One version of Moto X4 comes in Super Black and Sterling Blue colors, priced at $399 (around 26000 INR). It is available only for Project Fi customers. Selected Nexus model users can avail up to $165 off and extra $50 Project Fi credits on exchange.
