Motorola Moto X (Gen 4) Photo Leaks, Moto X Gen 4 Tipped to Sport Fingerprint Sensor, Heat Pipe


This year has been a very successful one for Motorola, the Illinois-based company launched some very impressive and successful smartphones this year, with the likes of Moto X Play and Moto X Style besides Moto G3 and Moto G3 Turbo. Motorola has already started working on its next flagship smartphone, the Moto X 2016 edition. Though we are far from hearing anything official about the Moto X 4th Generation smartphone but the leaks have already started flying.

The latest leak about the Moto X 4th Gen device have provided us a glimpse of the insides of the smartphone, in which the most notable feature to be seen is the heat pipe that has been included to prevent the chipset from overheating.


Though Motorola will not be the first smartphone to use this technology in this smartphone as Microsoft and Sony have already used this technology in this year’s Lumia 950 XL and Xperia Z5 Premium respectively to counter the overheating that was the Snapdragon 810 chipset famous for. Though Qualcomm will most probably be working on to eliminate the overheating problem from the next generation of its processors but Motorola just seems to be staying on the safe side.

Motorola Moto X (Gen 4) Photo Leaks, Incorporates Heat Pipe in Metal Body

The Moto X 2016 will most probably be powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. Other than the heat pipe, the image the metal unibody on the front like we show in the previous leak. The latest leak photo is also in lines of the previous leaked photo with both the rear camera cutout as well as the speaker grills in the same position in both the leaked photos.


Previously, we received a picture showing that the next generation of the Moto X will feature a metal unibody design that is quite different from the variants of the Moto X that we have seen till now. The picture shows the Moto X (4th Gen) sporting a different camera housing, which is protected with glass, which also incorporates the dual tone flash as well as the moto logo. There is the usual Motorola logo, below the camera housing.

The top and bottom of the rear panel seem to be made of plastic for the antennas. What we must note is that this is still very early to conclude that this is exactly how the next generation of the Moto X will look.
