Moto X4 Now Available In Idris Electronics Raipur Authorised Dealer of Motorola Mobiles
Despite being a mid-range offering, the Moto X4 has substantial firepower under its hood. It is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 630 chipset paired with either 3 or 4GB of RAM depending on the variant, the Adreno 508 GPU and a 3,000mAh battery with TurboCharge support. It comes with a 5.2-inch FullHD display with Gorilla Glass 3 on top and 32GB/64GB of internal storage which can be expanded via a microSD card (of up to 2TB).
The Moto X4 is IP68 dust and water resistant – the gold standard when it comes to smartphones. This is a feature that is rarely found in phones in this segment. In fact, smartphones like the iPhone 8 and HTC U11 – which cost much more than the Moto X4 have an inferior water ingress rating of IP67. With an IP68 certification, the Moto X4 can be dunked in up to 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes without any worries. In layman speak this means that the phone can be used near the pool, in the rain and even in the bathroom without any issues whatsoever.
Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 and some Motorola ‘magic’, the Moto X4 has the ability to stream audio to up to four Bluetooth headphones or speakers simultaneously. Four distinct Bluetooth devices can be paired to the smartphone and you can sync a single stream of music to all of them at the same time. From the little we have seen from Motorola’s demo, this feature seems rather impressive. The use case for this feature is vast – to connect multiple speakers at a party to collectively listen to music via two or more earphones.
While a lot of smartphones in this segment come with a dual cameras, the way Motorola has implemented the dual camera setup in the Moto X4 is a bit different. The norm in this price range is to pair a regular sensor with a secondary sensor whose sole job is to capture depth data. We have seen the same in smartphones like Moto G5S Plus, Honor 9i and Xiaomi Mi A1. In the Moto X4 however, there is a primary 12MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 mated to a secondary 8MP ultra wide-angle (120 degree field of view) sensor with an aperture of f/2.2. Such a setup not only allows you to capture images with depth of field effects but also ultra-wide angle shots.
The Moto X4 is also the first Motorola smartphone to feature a glass back which is paired to an aluminium frame for rigidity. As a result, the smartphone looks sleek and classy – much more so than its price tag suggests. It will not be remiss to say that is is one of the most premium looking smartphones in its segment. With a relatively small 5.2-inch display, the Moto X4 is also compact and pocketable in a day and age of mammoth phablets – which comes across as a breath of fresh air. The curved back and rounded edges also aid one-handed usability to a great extent.
