Motorola Moto Z4 Leak Confirms Return Of Headphone Jack And Moto Mods Support

Last month, we got our first glimpse of the Motorola Moto Z4 in the form of somewhat blurry images showing both the front and rear of the device. Today, we're getting high resolution images of the smartphone from every angle courtesy of Evan Blass.

The first thing that caught our attention is that Motorola has brought back the headphone jack at the bottom of the device. Motorola unceremoniously ditched the headphone jack with the Moto Z and has since been absent on Motorola's "flagship" phones. Judging by the pogo pins on the back, we can also see that Motorola is still sticking with its Moto Mods system of add-on accessories (something that it promised from the onset of the Moto Z series).

This means that the Moto Z4 will likely support the 5G Moto Mod that is currently only supported on the Moto Z3. The 5G Moto Mod is only supported on Verizon's nascent 5G wireless network.

Other items of note include the relatively small notch at the top of the screen for the selfie camera and no visible appearance of a fingerprint reader. That can only mean that the Moto Z4 has adopted an in-display fingerprint reader which is becoming more commonplace in today's Android smartphones. And the smartphone only has a single camera, which reportedly feature a 48MP sensor with Motorola Quad Pixel technology (final output of 12MP).

Although this Moto Z4 will serve as Motorola's flagship device, it reportedly won't feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor (or even a Snapdragon 845). It will allegedly have a Snapdragon 675 paired with just 4GB or 6GB of RAM in 64GB or 128GB storage configurations.

We should hear more about the Moto Z4 later this month with an official announcement from Motorola.
