Moto X4 and Moto Z2 launch expected at company's July 25 New York event

Motorola will announce its next product at an event in New York on July 25. The Verge reports that Motorola has started sending out save-the-date invites to media with the tagline - 'you won't want to miss this' and hashtag #hellomotoworld, indicating a global launch of probably a flagship device.

Motorola's 2017 leaked product roadmap revealed the company's plan to launch the Moto Z2 Force, Moto X4, Moto G5s and Moto G5s+ this year. if rumours are anything to go by, Motorola could announce the Moto Z2 and Moto X4 at its New York event. However, there is a possibility that only the Moto X4 is being announced, while Motorola delays Moto Z2 launch until IFA in September.

The Moto X4 was recently leaked revealing its design and specifications. The handset is making a comeback after Motorola dropped the Moto X series to concentrate on Moto Z series last year. The handset is expected to be a mid-range smartphone with a 5.2-inch full HD display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset under the hood. The Moto X4 is expected to come in multiple configurations, with an option for up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

The USP of the Moto X4 is expected to come in the form of dual rear camera setup. The smartphone is tipped to feature a combination of 12MP and 8MP dual rear cameras. It is not clear how the two sensors will work, but we assume one of the additional sensors will be used to capture the depth of the subject. The rumours also indicate Moto X4 getting a 16MP front camera for selfies.

The Moto X4 is sad to be IP68 water and dust resistant, and support Google's Project Fi network. Moto Z2, on the other hand, is tipped to sport a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display, with a Snapdragon 835 platform, and 4GB RAM. We will have to wait and see what Motorola really has in store for us.
