It seems like Google is working on expanding its Android One program with several smartphone brands. While we have already seen that the company has collaborated with Xiaomi to launch the latest Xiaomi Mi A1 smartphone, now reputable leakster Evan Blass (a.k.a. evleaks) has posted an image of another Android One smartphone. And this time it looks like it will be from Lenovo owned brand Motorola.
Well isn't this interesting... pic.twitter.com/QrC8bJz1pX— Evan Blass (@evleaks) September 9, 2017
Besides the high-resolution image of the Moto X4 with Android One branding has been posted on his twitter feed. Looking at the image we can see the back of the smartphone and it seems to come in black color. Further, the image clearly shows the Android One branding at the bottom of the phone.
The Twitter post doesn't reveal much about the device or even its name, but it has been said that it will likely be an Android One edition of Moto X4. Or there is also a possibility that it will come with some other name. We know Xiaomi Mi A1 is also basically the same phone as Mi 5X but the only difference is the stock Android experience. And the same thing could happen with Moto X4 as well.
It will be interesting to see what Motorola will bring in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Moto X4 was unveiled at this year's IFA tech trade show in Berlin. And considering the specifications, the Moto X4 Android One edition is also expected to have the same specifications as the original model.
Interestingly, Moto X4 will be the first Android One smartphone to be launched under Google's initiative in the U.S. Android One devices were limited to developing countries, such as India mostly. Google's Android One Program has mostly been initiated to provide affordable devices with stock experience to those users who cannot afford high-end Android smartphones.
Off late, the company's strategy seems to have been changed, and Google is launching smartphones in the mid-range category with higher price tags.
