Moto X has always offered a powerful combination of the best of Android and Moto Experiences with a uniquely intuitive user experience that consumers love. The last phone in the series was launched back in December 2015 and fast forwarding to September this year, we saw the launch of X4. The phone takes advantage of dual cameras to achieve an enhanced bokeh effect. This device comes with a glass back and a metal frame, and it comes in two colour options- Black and Sterling Blue. Moto X4 has a price around 475$, a smaller amount than the Moto Z2 Force which has a price of around 720 $. The camera app has also picked up new intelligent feature like the one that recognizes landmarks and objects, which in a way is pretty similar to the Bixby. The other feature is the Face Filters that lets you add animations to the photos and videos. Motorola has also added pro-mode in the front camera, where you can control the ISO, white balance, and exposure.

The Moto X4 has a 16-megapixel front camera with streak support, f/2.0 gap, and 1-micron pixels. You get Moto Key that saves your passwords securely and will enable you to unlock your PC using your Moto X4. The phone also benefits from being IP68 certified which allows it to be water and dust resistant.

It comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. It also comes with TurboCharge technology which promises to provide up to 6 hours of power in just 15 minutes. What is lacks though the level of customisability found in old Moto X smartphones such as the ability to buy the phone in exotic finishes such as wood or leather or Moto's popular Moto Maker service. Available in the U.S. in Project Fi-specific Android One and "regular" variants for a good few weeks now, the non-modular 5.2-incher delivers pretty impressive bang for your... rupee. Build your own stereo system without worrying about cables or listen to your favorite playlist across different sets of earphones while running with friends. For protection, it fits Corning Gorilla Glass on top of the LTPS IPS panel. Moto X4 has Amazon Alexa integration built-in, however, the feature is now disabled. After a few launch delays, the phone was launched at an event in Delhi and it was announced that the Moto X4 will be sold online via Flipkart exclusively.
