It was just a week ago that Project Fi tweeted that a new mid-tier handset would be joining its ranks later this year, the first non-Google device to do so. This mid-tier handset was outed as the Moto X4 shortly after. Since then, it has been reported that the Moto X4 has an all-metal body, water resistance, as well as a dual camera setup on its rear.

The presence of two cameras on the rear panel has been confirmed by serial leaker Evan Blass, someone who has a certain amount of pedigree when it comes to this sort of thing. The dual cameras sit in a circular module that protrudes from the panel, with the dual-tone flash also present beneath the sensors.
The front of the handset confirms the location of the fingerprint reader just below the display in what is traditionally the position for the Home button. The leaked image shows the handset in a gold metallic finish, with the Moto branding present between the display and the front-facing speaker which has a camera sensor and a flash unit either side of it. If you look at the leaked image closely, the Moto X4’s display would also appear to have curved edges.
Other than that, there isn’t too much to see. It’s unclear whether the Moto X4 will feature a 3.5mm audio jack or whether it will rely on the USB Type-C port pulling double duty. It’s thought that the mid-range handset will have a Full-HD display, Qualcomm’s 630 Snapdragon, up to 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB of internal storage with MicroSD card support, a 3,000mAh battery, IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, and running Android 7.1.1 when it launches towards the end of 2017.
