The new Moto X4 variant is being offered on Google's Project Fi network. Also, the Moto X4 seems to be a disappointment for some Motorola fans as the device won't pack Motorola's nifty additions such as Moto display, the One-handed navigation key, etc. It sports a 5.2-inch full HD LTPS IPS screen and 1,080x1,920 pixels (424 ppi pixel density) display, powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor, and runs Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with Amazon Alexa digital assistant and Google Assistant.

The rear dual camera setup compromises of a 12-Megapixel sensor+8-Megapixel ultra-wide angle lens with 120-degree field of view. A 12MP primary sensor and an 8MP wide-angle sensor are present at the back of the phone.

According to Android Police's Artem Russakovskii‏, it seems that following the update to Android 8.0 Oreo, his Pixel XL has been randomly rebooting on him with alarming frequency. For selfies, there is a 16MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The Moto X4 also features IP68 water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor housed under the home button.
