Motorola Moto X4 brings a dual-cam with super-wide-angle to the mid-range segment

Lenovo has introduced the Motorola Moto X4 at its IFA 2017 event, closing the gap in its line-up that was created after the Moto X series went into hiatus with the launch of the Moto Z models last year.

The Moto X4 is an upper-tier mid-range smartphone that slots in between the Moto Z and Moto G series and aims to offer a comprehensive feature set at an attractive price point. 400 Euros (no US pricing has been revealed yet) gets you a 5.2" 1080p IPS display, a sleek metal body with glass back, IP68 water-resistance, Snapdragon 630 chipset, Amazon Alexa integration and a dual-camera.

Speaking of the camera: the Moto X4's dual-cam module combines a 12MP main camera with an 8MP 120-degree super-wide-angle, a similar concept to what we've seen on LG's recent high-end devices. The main camera features a 12MP sensor with 1.4um pixel size, F2.0 aperture and PDAF; the super-wide angle has a smaller sensor with 1.12um pixels and F2.2 aperture. Bokeh effect and 4K video recording are included as well.

The front camera specification looks quite impressive for a device in this class as well: a 16MP sensor is accompanied by a F2.0 lens and a front-facing LED flash. Plus, the camera comes equipped with a 4MP low-light mode that uses pixel-binning to produce better low-light shots with reduced noise.

We have our hands on a test unit and first impressions are promising. The device feels very solidly built and, as always with Moto devices, the lean Android implementation feels smooth and responsive. The super-wide-angle lens looks like a useful addition to the main camera but we'll have to do some proper testing before commenting on image quality.

The Moto X4 will be available in Super Black and Sterling Blue this fall worldwide.
