Moto X4, the Google Assistant and Alexa-powered smartphone unveiled at IFA 2017, is expected to launch in India soon going by the current chain of teasers on Motorola India’s social media reports. The teasers, with the tagline “Xperience,” possess a series of images that are essentially natural settings shaped as a smartphone. There is no concrete date for its Moto X4 India launch event nonetheless, but the frequency of the tweets suggests that the corporation could let out more teasers and launch details soon enough.

Similarly, another teaser indicates a smartwatch with two sub-dials and a rim that’s again suggestive of this Moto X4’s dual rear camera setup that features a protruding round-shaped ring protection.
