While there is no other information about the Android One version of the Moto X4, the leak hints to the possibility of handset been under works.

Days after Xiaomi revived Google's forgotten Android One program (read here), popular tipster Evan Blass has leaked photos of an Android One smartphone from Motorola. A recent round of rumours suggest the Moto X4 could be the first non-Google device to join the Project Fi later this year.

Its dual camera setup is one of its most appealing features since the main array on the back consists of a 12 MP standard lens and an 8 MP wide-angle lens. Motorola Moto X4 Android One Edition render have leaked online.

The Moto X4 Android One variant is expected to be priced around the $400 mark and will likely be the first Android One Smartphone to hit the USA market. While the original version comes with no branding at the back except for the "M" logo at the centre, the image shared by Blass showed an additional "Android One" printed at the bottom. What's basically a rebranded Xiaomi Mi 5X, the new Mi A1 sports most of the same specifications as the Mi 5X, only it drops Xiaomi's MIUI Android skin.

If you are wondering what the differentiating factor would be between the regular variant of the Moto X4 and the Android One edition, the latter will be offered with a promise of regular, timely, and guaranteed Android updates. The device is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor along with Adreno 508GPU.

An Android One device from Motorola is interesting as the company already ships their device with a near stock Android experience. For the storage, the Mi A1 has 64GB with room to expand it, something you won't find on the Google Pixel or Nexus phones.

The Moto X4 runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat and is juiced up by a 3000mAh battery with turbo charging. Users get 16 MP in the front for selfies, a big plus as always with Motorola cameras. Connecting up to four external speakers with Bluetooth is a unique option no other phone supports at the time of this writing and the option of toying with sound settings of all four of these channels additionally contributes to creative possibilities for music ambience. The device comes with IP68 certification which makes the device water and dust resistant.
