Lenovo-owned Motorola is expected to release nine handsets by the end of the year. A leaked picture in May this year showed a slide of the company's expected releases for 2017. The leaked image also hinted that two smartphones each would be revealed for the Motorola G, C, E, and Z lines. It also indicated that a lone device will be unveiled in its Moto X line-up.

The Moto X4 was previously believed to be launched alongside the Moto Z2 handsets unveiled earlier this year, but it did not make an appearance in those launch events. Fans thought that the company would unveil the device on August 24, but the company disappointed smartphone fans.

However, on August 24 the FCC certification of the Moto X4 was leaked, which reveals the complete specification of the impending smartphone.

FCC Certification for Moto X4

The FCC listing for the Moto X4 revealed that the handset had cleared the certification process for its Bluetooth and network connectivity. The listing was stored under the ID IHDT56WK1 and the handset bears the model number XT-1900-1. Some of the CAD drawings of the handset were also leaked from FCC's database.

FCC certification is mainly regarded as the last stop for a handset or device before it is officially launched into the market. So, for those fans waiting for the Moto X4's release, this is quite the good news. If all goes well, Lenovo should launch the device by the end of September.

Moto X4 specs as revealed by FCC listing

The Moto X4 handset is expected to sport a 5.2-inch AMOLED Full HD display and is estimated to be protected by the Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, the device is expected to be powered by the octa core Snapdragon 630 chipset, which comes along with an Adreno 508 GPU. This fast processor is supported by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native flash storage.

The phone may offer a microSD slot that will allow users to expand the memory capacity by an additional 256 GB.

The handset is also rumored to be equipped with a dual camera setup on the back with a 12-megapixel monochrome lens and another 12-megapixel color picture snapper. This should allow the handset to take high-quality pictures even in low light conditions.

The Moto X4 may also boast a 16-megapixel secondary camera on the front. The FCC listing suggests that the handset will come with a 3,000 mAh battery, which is capable of turbo charging. The pricing of the upcoming Motorola phone is expected to be around $413.
