A new Motorola phone was leaked online thanks to our favorite online tipster @evleaks. The leaked image of the device, which has been allegedly dubbed the Motorola Moto G4 Plus, reveals the bottom portion of the front panel and further shows a physical home button.
Motorola will soon launch its fourth generation series of Moto G smartphones. The company’s India arm started sending invites on Thursday, for a 17th May New Delhi event. It was further tipped that a new device will be launched during this event, named the Motorola Moto G4. Rumors indicate that the company could also launch the Moto G4 Plus.
The device also houses a fingerprint sensor in addition. In the meantime, nothing is mentioned in the press event other than the date. The next generation Moto-G series will be launched by the Lenovo-owned company in India first, before the release takes place in other parts of the world. The company is expected to share further details about the event soon.
It has been further confirmed that Lenovo will upgrade the Moto brand to Moto by Lenovo due to which the 4th generation Moto G will launch with a slightly different moniker, compared to its predecessors.
The Motorola Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus have been recently leaked quite a few times through images and videos. Keep in mind that none of this information has been confirmed by the company.
The fourth generation Moto G prototype and the Moto G4 Plus were separately leaked in a video and an image. The white colored Motorola Moto G4 Plus shown in the leaked image shows a square-shaped fingerprint sensor which has been placed in a home button. There is a front facing camera and a speaker-grille.
The rear camera comes with flash and autofocus sensors which are further enclosed in a pill-shaped module. There is a dimple with the company logo located below the camera. According to the video shown on YouTube, the alleged Moto G4 didn’t have the fingerprint sensor which is found in the Moto G4 Plus.
The smartphone seems slightly bigger in size when compared to other handsets like the 2014 Moto X models and earlier Moto G versions. The Active Display technology was also shown in the video. This has been in the Motorola handsets for quite some time now.
The latest reports suggest that Motorola Moto G 4th generation will be releasing on 17th May. The phone will be coming soon in the May month and the company already started promoting the smartphone. The date has been disclosed and Moto G 4th Generation will be coming next month during the Moto X-Force Event in February 2016.
The Moto G 3rd generation has already turned a year old. It seems like Motorola has finally upped the game since the last Moto G with very mediocre hardware. The device comes with impressive features according to the latest rumors. It will have a 5.5inch 1080p full-HD display and will be powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
The device will be further expandable up to 128GB. At the moment, the company is busy sending out invitations of the event in order to launch the upcoming Moto G. There will be a 13-megapixel rear camera with laser autofocus in the Plus version along with an 8-megapixel front camera.
The batter powering this device will range from 3000-3600mAh. Reports indicate that Moto G4 and G4 Plus will release on 9th June and will come with added features like a fingerprint sensor. At the moment, Motorola is facing quite a few challenges.
