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.
As we mentioned, the Moto X4 is available in two inbuilt storage variants - 32GB or 64GB - both of which are expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB).

Sensors on board include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, gyroscope, and a proximity sensor.
The Moto X4 measures 148.35x73.4x7.99mm (9.45mm at camera bump) and weighs 163 grams. It is powered by a 3000mAh non-removable 'all-day' battery, which when coupled with a 15W TurboPower charger (bundled in the box) will provide up to 6 hours of power in 15 minutes of charge.
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. When scanning business cards, the smartphone automatically adds the contact.
