Moto X 4th Gen photo leaks, shows unibody metal design


Moto X 4th Gen

It doesn’t seem like yesterday that we were at the launch of the Moto X Style, Moto X Play and the Moto G in London, but it’s already been nearly 6 months (!). Motorola have been keeping busy in the meantime with the staggered launch of the devices, as well as an updated Moto 360. Now, a photo has leaked of the Moto X (4th Gen).

Moto X (4th Gen) photo leaked:

The leaked photo of the Moto X (4th Gen) clearly shows a unibody metal design, which is a big design leap from Motorola, with all their previous models having plastic interchangeable rear covers with the options of getting premium leather and wood designs too. At the launch in August, Motorola stated that keeping the shell made of plastic was to keep weight and price down, so moving to a full body design is a big change.

The photo clearly shows a large camera with a small logo etched into the glass, with a dual tone flash at the very bottom and completing the circle of the camera. Below this is the Motorola “M” logo and at the bottom, the speaker (which seems a strange place to put it to us). The very top and bottom of the device seems to be plastic, which will probably be to allow the antennae to work.

There are no details regarding the specifications of the Moto X (4th Gen), neither do we know of a release date, although that’s likely to be similar to previous years, round the Summer time (this year it was early August).

We’ll keep our ear to the ground and eyes to the internet and will report back any further development. What do you think of the shift from a plastic shell to a unibody design for the Moto X (4th Gen)? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
