Motorola has teased a brewing launch for the new Moto X4 on 1 February. The main Twitter manage of Moto India tweeted out, introducing that the phone “just got that much quicker, smarter and also sharper”. 

The “new” Moto X4 is mosting likely to showcase 6GB of RAM as well as is anticipated to operate on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box.


All the other attributes of the X4 remain the same. The phone is expected to retail at Rs 24,999 for the 6GB variant as there is a distinction of Rs 2,000 in between 3GB and also 4GB variants.

The Moto X4 includes an excellent looking glass back while the front is dominated by a 5.2-inch full HD display. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630. It’s got a twin electronic camera configuration – a 12-megapixel key video camera with f/2.0 aperture as well as an 8-megapixel secondary video camera with f/2.2 aperture. 

The front houses a 16-megapixel selfie cams with a broad aperture. The X4 runs on a 3,000 mAh battery which sustains fast billing via the 15W battery charger supplied with the box.

But was it necessary?

The just emphasize of this brand-new Moto X4 is the boost in RAM, which begs the concern, was it actually needed? While the rate of the 6GB variation is expected to be about Rs 2,000 even more compared to the 32GB variant, the method of somewhat upgraded items being released as brand-new ones might not decrease too well with users. 

Moto did the very same with the Moto G5 And also in 2015. The firm released an upgraded version with dual cameras within 6 months of announcing the G5 collection. While we don’t question the company’s intentions, it’s very easy to connect to customers that really feel ripped off for purchasing the initial tool. It’s the exact same tale as the OnePlus 5 as well as OnePlus 5T.

If you bought the Moto X4 previously, you’re most likely cursing your lot of money that a brand-new, a little extra pricey product, would have offered you a lot extra RAM. We get it, yet firms like Motorola have to too.

On the other hand, brands are stuck in an upgrade loop of sorts. Product upgrade cycles are down to six-odd months currently, which causes this type of practices. What’s the solution? Should we as customers quit buying items so quick? Elect with our money? Or should brands make a collective effort to lower inflow of products in the market? The very first choice appears more practical, doesn’t it?
