Win one of three unlocked Moto X4s from Ting and Android Police [US]

The Moto X4 is one of the company's latest midrange phones and an immensely capable device. It isn't a flagship, but it's a bit above your standard mid-range expectations. Granted, the $400 cost to grab one makes that abundantly clear, and that price is one of the few drawbacks. Thankfully for you, we've teamed up with Ting, the smarter choice for phone service, to give our readers a chance to win one of three Moto X4s.

Motorola releases kernel source code for the Moto X4

Moto X4 (Android One edition) review: This is not the Moto X you're looking for

Motorola had hit a rough patch when Google came calling back in 2011. It took some time to clear out the queue of sub-standard devices, but the first true Google-backed Motorola effort came in 2013 with the launch of the Moto X. This device broke new ground with clever software features like Moto Display (called Active Display at the time) and a customizable design. Motorola made a few more Moto X phones, all of which were excellent devices. Lenovo didn't keep the Moto X going when it took over from Google, preferring to sell devices like the modular Moto Z.

Here we are, two years after the last Moto X launched, and there's another phone that calls itself "Moto X." This is the Moto X4, a device that comes with the added distinction of being the first Android One phone in the US.

Amazon's newest Prime Exclusive phone is the Moto X4 for $329

The Moto X4 is Motorola's latest kind-of-budget phone, which despite the name, bears no resemblance to the Moto X of past years. Its availability in the United States is somewhat limited, with Motorola saying it will sell the phone unlocked on its website, and Project Fi offering an Android One version. In a few hours, there will be another way to buy the X4 - from Amazon.

Moto X4 for Project Fi delayed until later this month

Google and Motorola announced a big step for Project Fi a few weeks ago. The new Moto X4 will be the first "Android One" device in the US, as well as the first non-Google device on Project Fi. It's just not either of those things quite yet. The phone was supposed to be shipping around now, but customers are being notified of a delay of several weeks.

Motorola releases camera tuning app for the upcoming Moto X4

It's common for device makers to tweak the performance of a phone's camera after release, but it usually requires a full software update. However, last year Motorola used an app in the Play Store to make changes to the Moto G4's camera. It looks like the company is taking a similar approach to managing the camera on its upcoming Moto X4. A tuning app for that phone is live right now ahead of the phone's official launch.

Android One Moto X4 is official, and it's coming to Project Fi for $399

Project Fi, Google's pre-paid carrier, isn't quite as appealing as it once was. Now that the Nexus 5X and 6P are not sold (and suffering from hardware issues), the only phones available on Fi are the Pixel and Pixel XL. And unlike most pre-paid carriers, you can't use whatever device you want, as Fi uses specialized software to switch between networks. Customers have been asking Project Fi to begin selling cheaper devices once again, and the carrier has been listening.

Android One edition of Moto X4 leaks, could be the US's first Android One phone

After a lot of leaking, the Moto X4 made its formal debut at IFA. But it looks like even a released phone can still be leaked if it has two small words printed on the back of it: Android One. That's right - the latest leak from pro leakster @evleaks depicts a Moto X4 with a small Android One tramp stamp on its back. Could this be the first Android One phone for the US?

Motorola announces the mid-range Moto X4, with a Snapdragon 630, dual cameras, and a 5.2" LCD display

After plenty of leaks, Motorola has finally announced the resurrection of the Moto X, which should be a happy day for those who have fond memories of the last device in the series back in 2015. However, under Lenovo's stewardship things are a little bit different. Well, maybe a lot different. The Moto X4, announced here at IFA 2017 in Berlin, is a distinctly mid-range device and there's very little (if any) of the DNA that made the Moto X of old so special.
