Motorola‘s Moto X4 was scheduled to launch in June, which clearly did not happen. According to reports, the delay in launch could be due to Qualcomm failing to supply enough Snapdragon 660 SoCs. If a new report is to be believed, the wait for the Moto X4 is likely to get longer, as the launch will happen sometime in the fourth quarter of the year. The company has not yet officially confirmed any rumors as of now.
