Android One hasn’t really been successful but it looks like Google has not given up. Last week, we covered Xiaomi and Google built Mi 1A, a budget smartphone with dual camera setup and decent specs for the price and it looks like the Android One series will be getting one more entry from a well-known brand.
Even Blass, who is one of the reliable leakers about smartphones, shared a photo of Moto’s upcoming Moto X4 which will run Android One. The phone doesn’t look a lot different than mid range Moto X4 launched a few weeks ago, but it has some cosmetic changes. Apart from a logo in the back, most different part of the Android One based X4 will be its operating system which will be directly updated by Google rather than Lenovo.
The specs are decent too. The phone has a 5.2-inch FHD display and it is based on a mid range Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC paired with 3 gigs of RAM.
In other specs, the phone will have a dual camera setup on the back, one will be a 12-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture and the other will be 8 megapixels one with an ultra wide lens. On the front, the phone will ship with a 16-megapixel sensor with a f/2/0 aperture, which, while not as much as the 24 MP front camera included in Vivo’s recently launched phone, should be good enough for most users.
There are no official release dates, but we can expect it to hit the market soon and rumors are that the X4 may be one of the few Android One phones to come to the US.
