Amazon may have just initiated one of the biggest leaks in smartphone history. The e-commerce platform listed, sold and shipped a Motorola phone that technically still doesn’t exist. Not much was initially known about the upcoming Moto Z4, but the buyer who managed to get his hands on it uploaded an unboxing video for the entire world to see.

According to sources, the now-taken down Amazon listing noted a number of the Moto Z4’s main features such as a 6.4-inch OLED screen at a 2340 x 1080 resolution and an in-display fingerprint reader. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 675 processor and contains a built-in storage of 128GB, 4GB of RAM, a 3,600mAh battery and a headphone jack. This particular model is labelled as an “Amazon-exclusive” that arrives preloaded with Alexa and numerous Amazon apps. Based on screenshots taken before the company pulled the listing, it will retail for $499.99 USD.

The unnamed buyer provided a first look of the Moto Z4 with a five-minute unboxing video on YouTube. While he has no major complaints, he does note that there’s a visible gap between the unit and the Motorola MotoMods when it’s in place. Additionally, he reported via Reddit that the software is still facing major issues, “I’m getting lag and animation stuttering where I shouldn’t. Camera software is also very buggy with autofocus going haywire when taking photographs of close subjects.”

Seeing as the news of Amazon’s mishap is making rounds on the internet, it’s most likely that Motorola will push up the Moto Z4 announcement. Watch the video above and stay tuned for more details.
