The dual-SIM (Nano) Moto X4 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It sports a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) LTPS IPS display with a pixel density of 424ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC clocked at up to 2.2GHz, coupled with up to 6GB of RAM.
As for the dual rear camera setup on the Moto X4, Lenovo has chosen a 12-megapixel primary camera with a Dual Autofocus Pixel sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, and 1.4-micron pixels. The setup also consists of a 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor with a 120-degree field of view, an f/2.2 aperture, and 1.12-micron pixels. The dual rear camera setup is accompanied by a colour correlated temperature (CCT) dual-LED flash and supports phase detection autofocus (PDAF). Overall, the setup helps provide such photography modes as ultra-wide angle shots, selective focus, as well as depth detection and depth effects like Bokeh.
The Moto X4's front camera features 16-megapixel sensor with 1-micron pixels and an f/2.0 aperture, which the company says will help in low-light photography. Of course, the selfie flash also helps. Apart from a 4-megapixel adaptive low light mode, there is also a beautification mode.

We've mentioned some of the biggest features of the Moto X4, such as its IP68-rating for dust and water resistance. Its Bluetooth v5.0 connectivity has also been leveraged to allow the smartphone to sync with up to four speakers, headphones at a time - something Moto is calling a Wireless Sound System. It also bears a fingerprint sensor on the home button.
Other features include Moto Experiences, with gestures like a 3-finger swipe for screenshots, as well as a built-in password manager called Moto Key. There are also features like one-button navigation, Moto Display, and Moto Voice. The rear camera is also capable of landmark/ object recognition, and can also scan barcodes and QR codes.
