Moto Z4 Leaks with a Teardrop Notch and Moto Mod Support

Motorola hasn’t been too active lately, having only released the G7 line earlier this year. However, the company won’t be staying out of the announcement cycle for long as one of its upcoming phones, the Moto Z4, has leaked in new renders, courtesy of 91 Mobiles.

In the renders, we see a device that’s clearly reminiscent of past Moto Z devices. That’s because the Z4 will still support Moto Mods, Motorola’s modular accessory system. It was originally promised that three generations of Moto Z smartphones would support the accessories, and it looks like the company will be extending this act of gratitude by at least another year.

Elsewhere, the device looks like a Motorola phone. It appears to be thin and made of aluminum (ridding any chance of wireless charging making it on board) with a relatively large screen on the front, probably somewhere in the 6.0- to 6.3-inch range. It sports a teardrop notch at the top to house the selfie camera and a potential in-display fingerprint sensor given the fact a physical one isn’t visible in the renders.

Interestingly, Motorola might only opt for a single rear camera with the Z4. Mind you, this sensor could weigh in at 48MP and use Sony’s technology, but it’s a bit weird to see the company drop its secondary camera which has been in use since the Z2. Perhaps the new lens will be enough to compete with the big dogs.

Rounding off today’s rumors, 91 Mobiles notes the Z4 could offer the Snapdragon 855 processor, 5G support using the 5G Moto Mod, Android Pie, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port.

It’s unclear when Motorola plans to announce the Z4. The device in the renders does feature a date of April 3rd, but that could just be a placeholder. Regardless, we’ll keep you posted if any details emerge.
