Moto X4

In a text book case of déjà vu, the Motorola MOTO X4 did not get announced today as was previously hinted at. This does not mean we did not learn anything about the up and coming premium mid-ranger, although not launched it did get its certification from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The handset has is listed as the IHDT56WK1 in the FCC records while bearing the model number XT1900-1. Apart from this, the official specifications of the smartphone were reiterated once again.

MOTO X4 FCC schematics

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC at its heart which is complemented by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Users demanding more storage can expand on this via a microSD card of up to 256GB. On the display front, the FCC certification reveals a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080 x1920) full-HD panel, which is quite a surprise considering the device’s price point. In a further contradiction to existing information, the dual cameras at the rear are supposed to be twin 12-megapixel shooters. While one is configured to shoot in colour, the other shoots in monochrome. Selfie and video calling duties are handled by a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens up front.

Powering all this hardware is a 3000mAh battery which supports Motorola’s proprietary Turbo Charging technology. From the listing, it was also revealed that the handset will come in three colours, Sterling Blue, Super Black and Gold. Apart from this, the listing confirmed that the MOTO X4 will support Wi-Fi 802.11 up to ac standard and Bluetooth v.5.0.
