Lenovo's next iteration of the X series -- dubbed #Moto X4 -- will be launching sometime during the fourth quarter of 2017. Not much was known about the device until today, thanks to a leak posted on Reddit, revealing the specs we should expect from the new smartphone. Here is a list of all the details we know about the Moto X4.

So what's new?

The successor of the Moto X Style will offer a slew of internal upgrades missing from former generations. Starting off with the display, the Moto X4 will sport a full HD IPS 5.5-inch display (401ppi), covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, featuring "3D Glass" technology. It will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 CPU, which houses eight Kyro cores, four clocked at 2.2GHz and the rest at 1.8GHz, along with Adreno 512 GPU.

Two storage options will be available: 32GB with 3GB of RAM and 64GB with 4GB of RAM. Both versions are upgradeable via microSD up to 256GB.

Furthermore, the Moto X4 will include 2017's hottest smartphone trend: dual-set cameras. As of now, we know that the primary shooter will be 13MP, recording 2K video, featuring dual LED flash, touch-focus, phase detection, and HDR. The front one will shoot at 5MP and record 1080p video.

Extra features include a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, NFC, Bluetooth v4.2, quick charging, and most likely #Project Fi. For those unfamiliar with the latter term, Project Fi is Google's own cellular network. The Moto X4 will earn the distinction of being the first non-Google phone to be compatible with the service. Project Fi is currently limited to US-based users.

To accommodate the heavy spec sheet, it is rumored that Lenovo will be including a 3,800 mAh battery, which sounds adequate enough. The Moto X4 will be coming with #Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box.

Will it be compatible with Moto Mods?

According to the latest reports, it is highly probable that the Moto X4 will be breaking the tradition, which means that it won't be a modular smartphone. Users will be able to change the rear cover of the device, though.

Price and release date

As mentioned in the beginning, it is anticipated that Lenovo will roll out the smartphone sometime in October. Price-wise, since the X4 qualifies as a mid-range smartphone, it will start at around $350 and go up to $450 for the higher-end model, off-contract. Fine Gold seems to be the only color at the moment, though its predecessor came in several color choices -- expect the phone to be available in a wide range of colors as well.
