Just yesterday, Google’s Project Fi announced that a new mid-tier smartphone would hit their service later this year from one of their previous partners. Of course, we didn’t know which partner the network was speaking of, but a new report attempts to shed some light on this speculation.
According to Evan Blass of VentureBeat, Moto has once again partnered with Google to deliver the Moto X4 as an exclusive to Project Fi. The phone will mark the first time a non-Nexus-or-Pixel branded device was offered. It’ll also mark the return of the Moto X as we haven’t seen one since 2015 as last year, the company opted for the Moto Z line as their flagship series.
While no extensive details were shared here, VentureBeat does claim the handset could land in Q4 2017. It’ll also supposedly be priced in the $400-$500 range. As for specs, previous rumors suggest a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 660 processor, and something called “SmartCam” that’s probably just a dual rear camera system.
Overall, this smartphone seems pretty promising. We should learn more about it over time as its expected release date creeps up.
