Moto X4 Key Features
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor, Android™ 7.1 Nougat and has non-removable 3300mAh battery. It also has IP68 water resistance rating that keeps your phone protected from accidental spills, splashes and even puddles.
When it comes to storage, the Moto X4 smartphone has a 3GB RAM & 32GB Internal storage (ROM) with microSD card support up to 2TB.
Other Specific X4 Features
- Single-SIM slot (Nano)

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.
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.
