Smarter Camera

The highlighting feature of Moto X4 is its advanced dual rear cameras with a 12MP and 8MP sensor. The rear camera combination offers the ‘Bokeh’ effect with the blurred background and object in sharp focus.

In simple words, X4 can create an artificial depth-of-field effect that blurs out the background to highlight your subject. Apart from this, through updated camera software, you can select black and white colour or change the background.

While, X4’s 16MP front-facing selfie camera is capable in capturing wide-angle shots to help others get a better sense of where you are and what is going on around you.

Amazon Alexa

You can access the features and benefits of Amazon Alexa without even unlocking your X4. Though, it is unclear if this feature will roll out to other markets like India, where Alexa is not yet officially available.
