Project Fi Moto X4 won't ship until late October

The phones will go out between October 18th and 25th.

If you were looking forward to getting a Project Fi Moto X4, you may want to steel yourself before checking your inbox. Google has sent out emails notifying people who pre-ordered the device on Fi that a production delay has affected its estimated shipping date. The device will now ship between October 18th and October 25th -- and a lot of people aren't happy about it.

Moto X4 is the first non-Google and first Android One (the company's line of low-cost phones) device to be part of the big G's mobile virtual network operator. It runs on Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, depending on the region, has an IP68 water-resistant body, a 5.2-inch full HD display and a 16-megapixel front camera. At sub-$400, it's more affordable than the other Fi devices, including the Pixel and the Pixel 2, so it's not surprising that the delay didn't sit well with a lot of pre-order customers on Reddit and Lenovo's forum.
