Motorola Mobility is expected to unveil a Moto X4smartphone later this year. While we still don’t know exactly when the device should be officially announced, we now have some news about it.
According to Venture Beat, the Moto X4 will be released on Google’s Project Fi in the fourth quarter of the year – thus sometime in October, November, or December.
Google itself confirmed that a “device at a mid-tier price” would be launched on Project Fi later this year, although it didn’t specifically mention the Moto X4.
Rumors have it that the Motorola Moto X4 will be a metal-made mid-range smartphonepowered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. The handset should be water-resistant, further featuring a 5.5-inch screen, 4 GB of RAM, and a 3800 mAh battery.
Initially launched in 2015, Project Fi is Google’s own mobile virtual network operator (MVNO). It relies on the networks of T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular, as well as on Wi-Fi hotspots to provide services. Currently, only Google-branded smartphones (Pixel, or Nexus in the past) are sold by Project Fi.
