Building on this strong brand heritage, the new Moto X4 is a smartphone crafted to perfection. With smarter software, the latest camera technology and beautiful design, Moto X4 is a phone designed like no other.

Moto X4: Bringing Style into Sharp Focus 

Creating A Smarter Camera

Moto X4 features a smarter camera that can do more than just capture photos. The new Landmark Detection1 feature lets the camera serve as your eye to the world – just point the lens at an object of interest and it will automatically ask if you want to learn more about what you’re seeing. It can even scan a business card and quickly add the info to your contacts. Or if you’re looking to spice up your selfies, try out the Face Filters feature2, which lets you add a layer of animations to your photos or videos.

Now offering twice the camera, you can capture and do more with the combined capabilities of dual 12MP and 8MP rear cameras and advanced camera software. Add a blurred background to take professional looking portraits and be among the first to experiment with new beta features that let you use selective black and white or color or even change the background. Dual Autofocus Pixel technology also means a faster focus in low light so you get professional quality pictures, and the wide angle lens lets you capture even more. Selfies take on new meaning with Moto X4, which has a 16MP front camera with an adaptive low light mode3 for the selfie you meant to take, while the new Panoramic Selfie feature provides a broader background so no one is cut out of the photo from your next family outing.

Powerful Protection and Performance

Moto X4 is armed with robust protection allowing you to tackle whatever your day may call for without worry. The IP68-rated water resistant design4 keeps Moto X4 protected from accidental spills, splashes and even puddles, so whether you’re mountain biking in the rain or there’s an accidental beverage spill in your kitchen, you can say goodbye to water damage. And when paired with the 3D rear contoured design, an anodized aluminum frame and Corning® Gorilla® Glass protecting the front and back of the device from scratches, Moto X4 is as strong as it is beautiful.

Equipped with powerful performance capabilities, streaming is now more efficient than ever with Moto X4, which is driven by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 2.2 GHz octa-core processor, giving you all the performance you need to watch videos and play games free from annoying stutters. Inside, a 3,000 mAh battery will power you through your day5, and the TurboPower™ charger gives you six hours of power in just 15 minutes6. 

New and Intuitive Experiences

Hands tied up? At your busiest moments, Moto X4 has your back. Experience Amazon Alexa integrated right into Moto X4 – without having to unlock it first.9 Now, the benefits of Alexa go with you, even when you leave home. So if you need Alexa to read your grocery list or help you with some tricky lyrics while you’re out of the house it’s possible with Moto X4.

Moto X has always incorporated the best software experiences to make your phone smarter and easier to use. So it’s no surprise Moto X4 features all the Moto Experiences you love, plus new software features that make your phone even better to use. Why should you be limited to just one speaker? Moto X4 is now the life of the party with wireless sound system, allowing you to share the sound by connecting up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time7. Build your own stereo system without worrying about cables or listen to a playlist across two sets of earphones while running with a friend. With wireless sound system, sound is all around you.

And now with our Quick Screenshot feature, just place three fingers on the screen for a moment to capture a screenshot anytime. Moto X4 is also equipped with Moto Key, which allows you to access your favorite password-secureEd websites on your phone or laptop with a simple touch of your finger, while strong encryption ensures your data stays protected8. So, with your Moto X4, you can say goodbye to remembering all those passwords.
