The cat was first let out of the bag earlier this month that Motorola would bring the Moto X4 to the United States as the country's first Android One device. Today, Google confirmed that news and announced that the Moto X4 will be available via its Project Fi wireless service.
What makes this Android One Moto X4 different is the fact that it runs the Android One operating system, which Google says offers a "pure Android experience". You won't find any extra Motorola software installed on the device, nor will you find any bloatware
Although the Android One Moto X4 will come from the factory with Android Nougat, it will receive an update to Android Oreo before the end of the year. In addition, Google says that this will be one of the first devices that will receive next year's Android P update.
On the hardware front, the Android One Moto X4 is identical to its counterpart that was introduced for Europe. That means you'll find a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, dual rear cameras (12MP, 8MP), 16MP selfie camera, IP68 dust/water resistance, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The battery can be zapped from a 0 percent charge to provide 6 hours of runtime in just 15 minutes using TurboPower.
Google will make the Android One Moto X4 available for $399 via Project Fi, and it will be come in Super Black or Sterling Blue. Google also announced that it is starting a new Project Fi trade-in program for Nexus devices, so you will be able to get up to $165 if you hand over your current device. In addition, the company will throw in an extra $50 if you start the process priory to October 5th.
