While we await the relaunch of Motorola’s Moto X lineup with the Moto X4, Evan Blass has confirmed the design of the upcoming device. This comes after recent leaks suggested that the new Moto G5S lineup was in fact, the Moto X4. This was debunked by Blass, who tweeted the following:
Hardest part of this is admitting you had bad information – or an early render. I've seen the Moto X4 final design – it is indeed this one. pic.twitter.com/lHsaLWtckK

So it seems that Blass shared some dubious information when these leaks were starting to roll out, but has since seen the X4 and can now confirm the above image is the X4. As for what the Moto X4 holds for the market, it’s likely that we’ll see the device enter the mid-range market while featuring some pretty interesting specs.
Recent Geekbench results revealed the Moto X4 to include a 5-inch FHD display while being powered by the Snapdragon 630 SoC and 3GB of RAM. Motorola seemingly skimped a bit on the storage side here, as the results shared that the device only has 16GB of storage, but it’s extremely likely that a microSD card slot will be present.
Other rumored features for the Moto X4 include IP68 water and dust resistance, something that even Motorola’s 2017 flagship doesn’t have in tow. The Moto “always-on voice” will likely be made available on the X4, as well as a “smart camera” and full AI integration. Additionally, we won’t be seeing a plastic build for the X4, as leaks have revealed a glass and metal design for the device.
Let us know what you think about this latest information regarding the Moto X4 and if you’re excited to see the device launched.
