Motorola strikes again with the new Moto Z4
Motorola recently introduced the Motorola One Vision to the world and now the company strikes again with a device that could gain a lot of fans in a short period of time. The Moto Z4 is now available for preorders and it seems to be exactly what Motorola fans desired. The new handset might essentially be an upgraded version of the Moto Z3, however, it continues the modular Moto phones’ tradition and this is a feature that many people simply love when it comes to Motorola smartphones.
The design of the Motorola Moto Z4 is quite similar to the one of its predecessor, but it did get slightly larger overall, and it has a 6.4-inch display, while the Z3 only offered a 6-inch screen. The fact that Motorola managed to squeeze a larger display in a body that got only a little bigger is due to the fact that the bezels now are almost inexistent. The Moto Z3 both on the top and on the bottom. The Moto Z4 adopted the tear-shaped camera notch we’ve been seeing a lot of lately, so the end result is a more elegant and modern-looking smartphone with the same friendly rounded corners some of us like so much. The device did get a little thicker too, but thanks to this, users will be able to enjoy a longer battery life ensured by the 3,600mAh energy pack.
Under the hood, the Moto Z4 carries a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Users can further expand this with a memory card. These specs are not as great as we would have normally expected from the Motorola Z-series devices, however, this downgrade is probably why Motorola managed to keep the price of the handset affordable. This will definitely count in the books of many smartphone users.
Another thing that at first sight might seem to be a downgrade is the number of cameras. Instead of the Moto Z3’s dual camera module, the Moto Z4 only has a single primary camera. Actually, this isn’t a downgrade, as the single camera is a 48MP one that should be able to deliver higher quality images than the dual camera of the Moto Z3. On the front, there is a 25MP selfie snapper that is a huge upgrade from the 8MP lens on the Z3.
The fact that the Moto Z4 is a modular phone, unfortunately, doesn’t mean that it brought along any new Moto Mods. However, it is compatible with all the existing ones, which counts a lot. Other features of the new Moto Z4 include an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and a nearly stock version of Android Pie. The unlocked Moto Z4 will become available starting June 6, for $499. Those who wait a little longer, until June 13, will be able to purchase the device from Verizon for a special price, together with the 5G Moto Mod.
