Amazon US sold a Moto Z4 accidentally before its launch, and following that news, the Lenovo-owned company finally made the device official. While the new Moto Z4 once again has support for Moto Mods, there is barely any change in design and dimensions too as compared to last year’s model or the one before.
Moto Z4 Specifications
A few changes can be seen on the display though, such as a small water drop notch over a larger display and an inbuilt fingerprint sensor. However the back and front remain the same, with Gorilla Glass 3 protection at both back and front sides. The smartphone features a 6.4-inch OLED FHD+ display with 2340 x 1080 pixels of resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.
The hardware is quite underwhelming with an Octa-core Snapdragon 675 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage. This implies that you are not getting a flagship level device. The smartphone also drops last year’s dual-camera setup for a single camera of a 48MP lens with a Quad Bayer tech capable of offering high-quality 12MP snapshots. The smartphone also has an impressive Night Mode, thanks to the Motorola One Vision with AI. Other than that, we get OIS in the camera and a 25 MP front shooter with AI-based beatification.
Motorola is offering a promising battery power of 3600mAh that’s chargeable through a 15W fast charger. Running Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, there is also a P2i splash proof coating on Moto Z4.
The enhancements the device performance will come after the device will use any of the many Moto Mods available. The latest one is the $200 5G Moto Mod. Approx. Rs 14,000 Mod turns up the super-fast network in the device. The added bonus is the free 360-degree camera Moto Mod which will be available in certain areas of the USA. The smartphone itself costs $499 which roughly translates to Rs 34,990. The device will be available from June 6 in the US market initially. There is still no information when it will be launched in the Indian market.
Moto Z series has been popular for its Mod versions and this year is no different. But we still feel like with the stiff competition already flooding the budget flagship range of 35K to 50K, Motorola should’ve done something better with Moto Z4.
