Looks like the next gen Moto G devices are here, and they’re the first to come under Lenovo’s new “Lenovo Moto” branding.
Bigger than their predecessors and packing more power under the hood, these two new phones will hopefully be what breathes life back into the series, no longer under Motorola. They look quite close to the leaks that surfaced leading up to the launch, so in terms of design we’re not too surprised.
While its the same size as its sibling the Lenovo Moto G4, the Moto G4 Plus is the high spec option of the two, the “Plus” referring more to what’s under the hood as opposed to screen size.
It is slightly larger, the 1080p display measures in at 5.5 inches as opposed to the 5-inch devices from the previous Moto G line. The screen also has Gorilla Glass 3, with a fingerprint reader sitting directly under the display, a feature that’s only on the Moto G4 Plus model.
As for its innards, the device will be home to a Snapdragon 617 processor along with the option of 4GB, 3GB or 2GB RAM as well as 16GB or 32GB storage, depending on how affordable you want it. The storage is expandable via microSD, so you can bump up the storage yourself if you wish.
The cameras on the other hand, are a 5MP front shooter with 84 degree wide-angle lens while the rear camera is a 16MP lens with laser and phase detection alongside a f/2.0 aperture.
Looking very similar to its sibling, the Lenovo Moto G4 has pretty much the same innards as the Moto G4 Plus, except that you only have 2GB RAM and a choice of 16GB or 32GB built-in, expandable storage. For the rear camera you get a 13MP shooter but it has the same 5MP selfie snapper as the G4 Plus. You don’t get a fingerprint scanner here either, sorry.
Both devices have 3,000mAh batteries and fast charging, but only the Moto G4 Plus gets a Turbo Charger out of the box.
As for availability, the new Moto phones will be exclusive to Amazon.in, with prices starting at INR 13,500 (about RM 812) for the 16GB Moto G4 Plus and INR 15,000 (about RM 902) for the 32GB storage model.
