While the attention around Motorola  of late has been on a possible foldable Razr revival, it appears that the foldable isn't the only higher-end phone the company has in the works.

According to a new image posted on Twitter late on Wednesday by noted leaker Evan Blass, a new Moto Z4 may be on the way. 

The leaked image showcases the Z-series' trademark svelte design, with a large camera sensor on the rear alongside connector pins for Motorola's Moto Mods accessories. USB C and a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack are present on the bottom of the phone, along with what appears to be a speaker on the top. 

"It is our policy to neither confirm nor deny rumors," Motorola said in a statement.

Screen size is unknown from the image but the display does have a teardrop notch similar to the company's new Moto G7

According to a separate leak from India's 91mobiles, the phone will have a 6.4-inch OLED display with an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 48-megapixel rear camera and a 3,600-mAh battery with Motorola's Turbo Charge fast charging. A 25-megapixel camera is said to be the front sensor, with both cameras supposedly using a new "Quad Pixel" mode to boost low-light photos. 

Storage will be available in either 64GB or 128GB options, while RAM will be either 4GB or 6GB. 91Mobiles says the phone will be powered by Qualcomm 's Snapdragon 675 processor, as opposed to the company's more premium Snapdragon 855 chip, which is found in the likes of the Galaxy S10 line or LG 's G8. 

It's unclear how much the new phone will cost, though last year's Z3 was priced at $480 when it launched in August. It is equally unclear on if this phone will support 5G

The Z3 recently became the first phone to support Verizon 's 5G network, thanks to a 5G Moto Mod adapter, and the inclusion of the Moto Mod pins suggests that even if the phone doesn't have 5G built-in, those who want to add it may be able to do so with the accessory.
