Motorola’s most advanced phone, the Moto Z4, is now here, which is similar to that of the Motorola One Vision.
While Moto Z phones are mid-range phones compared to the other phones in the market. The Moto Z3 version released in last year featured Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, and some have the newer Snapdragon 845. What made a difference this time is Moto Mods. The company has introduced new features quickly to lower-priced phones. Moto Mods magnetically placed to the back of the phone offering new features like extra battery life, wireless charging, or capturing 360-degree photos.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Moto Z4.
Under the Hood Specification
This phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675. It focuses on artificial intelligence and improved image processing. It can’t beat the Snapdragon 855 in performance. Packed with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage with MicroSD card. With a 3,600mAh battery, which can last for two days of normal use.
The fingerprint sensor has been shifted to in-display which is an optical sensor, and that means you’ll need a compatible screen protector for it to work.
Running on Android 9 Pie, Moto Actions are present like twisting the phone twice to launch the camera, and Moto Display so you can wave your hand over the screen to see notifications. You can also activate Google Assistant by double-tapping the power button.
Design and Display
The company has kept the earlier similar body size and style so the phone can accommodate all the existing Moto Mods. Still, it is not exactly the same as its predecessors.
The design of the front of the phone lies the major difference. It features an edge-to-edge display for the Moto Z4, with rounded corners and a bubble-shaped teardrop notch for the front-facing camera.
