And with at least two years of guaranteed OS upgrades, your phone stays fresh over time,” the Project Fi website reads.

Moto X4 Specs and Features
Motorola has offered some brilliant build quality on this new smartphone, which now comes with IP68 water and dust resistance. Durability is offered with a chassis made up of metal and the display being protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4.
Fitting with its price point, the moto X4 utilizes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. There is another variant available featuring 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
One of the highlights of the new moto X4 is the dual camera setup at the back. With this device, Motorola has made use of a 12-megapixel unit along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, which is well-equipped for low-light photography.
The real surprise comes with the front camera, which gets a 16-megapixel sensor minus the front flash. To compensate for the flash, motorola has included an adaptive low-light mode.
