Moto X4 Will Launch In The US As An Android One Phone

 

If you are thinking Google is going to ignore their Android One project, you are wrong. Recently, the company teamed up with Xiaomi for the launch of an Android smartphone, the Mi A1. There have been other Android One handsets launched by smaller companies in various countries, so it appears that the offering will continue to grow.




Motorola, the company that once belonged to Google, is expected to join the Android One project very soon. The famous leaker Evan Blass suggests that a Motorola smartphone with a dual-camera setup and Android One branding is shown in a press render which is likely to be Moto X4.

Not much else is known about Motorola's Android One smartphone, but since the US company hasn't been approached by Google to build its next Pixel device, an Android One handset will do just fine. Moto X4 will indeed be the US's first Android One phone. This makes some sense, as unlike Cherry Mobile, General Mobile, or even Xiaomi, Motorola is a known brand stateside, and basing our first Android One device off of an existing phone would allow Google to properly gauge the market's interest in it. This would also line up with the rumors of the X4 being a Project Fi device.

Aside from the software, the Moto X4 Android One edition should have the same specs as its non-tramp stamped brother. That means a 5.2" 1080p display, a Snapdragon 630, 3 or 4 GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage, a 12MP/8MP dual rear camera setup, a 16MP front-facing camera, a 3000mAh battery, and IP68 certification. We're not too sure about pricing or availability, but we'll hopefully hear more about this soon.
