Moto X4 was rumored to become the first non-Google Android One smartphone for the US market. Google confirmed these rumors by officially announcing Moto X4 Android One edition for Project Fi. Moto X4 Android One will have a pure Android experience like other Google powered Pixel and Nexus devices.
It seems that Google is serious in bringing more affordable “Powered By Google” devices in the market. Moto X4 Android One is one of them. The device will offer a “Pure Android” experience by limiting the bloatware and adding curated set of apps that are preinstalled.
Another benefit of Android One devices is added advantage of getting latest updates from Android. Moto X4 Android One will be updated to the latest Android Oreo 8.0 before December and will be one of the first devices to get upgraded to Android P.
Moto X4 Android Edition is different from Moto X4 which Motorola started selling in Europe earlier this month. Although the device has the same hardware as Moto X4 but has different OS. The Moto X4 Android One Edition is powered by Snapdragon 630 octa-core 2.2GHz processor with Adreno 508 GPU. The device has a 5.2 FHD AMOLED Gorilla Glass 3 display, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal Storage.
Google says that user of older Nexus devices can trade in to save up to $165 toward the purchase of the new Moto X4 Android One and if you start your trade-in by October 5, you’ll earn an extra $50 Fi credit. The Phone can be pre-ordereded from Google Fi Project website for $399.
