Latest Renders Reveal The Upcoming Moto Z4 In All Its Glory
Motorola, a renowned smartphone OEM, launched the first Moto Z smartphone back in the year 2016. Remarkably, the aforementioned smartphone lineup allows users to add certain functionalities with the help of additional accessories called Moto Mods. The functionality that a Moto Mod can add could range from external battery pack to a loudspeaker pack to even an optical zoom camera. The company is expected to launch a new device in the lineup in the following weeks. This handset, allegedly called the Moto Z4 has been leaked in design renders by the popular gadget tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter.
The upcoming Moto Z4 is expected to be a mid-range offering from Motorola. Leaked renders of the smartphone reveal it will sport a design that is reminiscent of its predecessors. The reason the design remains the same may be because of the promised uniform support of the Moto Mods accessories across different generations for a minimum of three years. While the promised support would have ended with the Moto Z3 launched last year, the company may be sticking with the same design with the Moto Z4 for the accessories to last longer and making the upgrade easier for buyers of the old device.
Previous leaks suggest the upcoming Moto Z4 will feature a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 px. To maximise the screen real estate, the company will use a waterdrop notch on top of the display like seen in the Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plus. For biometrics security, it may have an in display fingerprint sensor with support for face unlock technology. The handset will run on the 11nm Snapdragon 675 SoC which is also found in the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The chipset is comprised of an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 612 GPU. In terms of optics according to the renders, the Moto Z4 will have a single rear camera which is expected to be an f/1.75 aperture equipped 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor. In terms of memory and storage, the smartphone will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Past leaks claim the Moto Z4 will be powered by a 3600 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. The smartphone is likely to run on the latest Android 9 Pie with some additional customisation by Motorola. Leaked renders of the handset reveal it will have a USB Type C port for charging and data syncing and will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack. The increased intensity of the leaks of the device hint its launch is imminent. Unfortunately, details about the pricing are not available yet, but it is reported to launch at a price of US$ 450 (Rs. 31,300).
