The Moto X4 has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 20,999. After a few launch delays, the phone was launched at an event in Delhi and it was announced that the Moto X4 will be sold online via Flipkart exclusively. Let’s unbox the Moto X4 and see what we get inside:

  • Moto X4
  • Documentation
  • Earphones
  • Sim ejector tool
  • Wall adapter
  • USB Type C Cable

First Impressions

The Moto X4 looks and feels different from the Motorola phones launched in recent years. The device has a glass front and back which gives it a very premium look but, it also means that the phone will attract fingerprints. The dual camera at the back protrudes a little but, it is not that prominent and thanks to the presence of Corning Gorilla Glass, the camera glass won’t get scratched up easily.

Thanks to the curved glass at the back, the phone is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand and is also very grippy unlike phones with a matte finish.

The moment you switch on the Moto X4, you will notice why Motorola phones have been so successful over the years. The company’s commitment to stick with stock Android OS shines on the Moto X4, too as the phone is very responsive and day to day tasks are a breeze. The camera on the Moto X4 is also much improved with some tweaks and new features.

Specifications

The Moto X4 has a 5.2 inch 1920 x 1080 px LTPS IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top for protection.

The Moto X4 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, 2.2 GHz octa-core processor and Adreno 508 GPU, along with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 2TB via microSD card. The phone has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. The fingerprint sensor is housed inside the home button which also doubles up as a single navigation button. The Moto X4 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery with TurboCharge capabilities. The company claims that the 15 mins of charge can give up to 6 hours of talk time.

The Moto X4 is the only smartphone in this price bracket that has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance.

Like every Motorola phone, the Moto X4 runs stock Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Motorola recently announced that the Moto X4 will receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of the year.

The new smartphone will also feature Alexa, the Amazon AI voice assistant, when Alexa officially launches in India. This isn’t the first time that Alexa has made its way onto a smartphone, the Huawei Mate 9 was the first smartphone to feature the voice assistant. Since then, we have also seen Alexa make its way to the HTC U11. The 4 in Moto X4 signifies that the new smartphone will be able to share the sound with up to 4 devices, thanks to the presence of Bluetooth 5.0.

The Moto X4 has a dual-camera setup at the back. The main camera is a 12MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture, and the 8MP secondary camera with an f/2.2 aperture is equipped with a wide-angle lens. The dual-cameras allow users to have depth effect shots, bokeh effect shots, ultra-wide angle shots, and selective focus shots. On the front of the device is a 16MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and an LED flash. The cameras record 4K videos at 30 FPS.
