Motorola held its unveiling today in New Delhi, India with other events in Brazil and Mexico. AndroidPIT will be covering this event and testing out the new Moto G4 and G4 Plus devices. We'll bring you all the details from the event so stay tuned.
The original price of the 8 GB Moto G (2015) was $179. AndroidPIT received a press release that announced the prices for the UK. According to Motorola the Moto G will be available in the UK from early June 2016 from Tesco Mobile, Argos and Amazon for £169 (around $240). The Moto G Plus will be available from mid-June from Amazon exclusively for £199 (about $288). We'll let you know about US availability and prices as soon as we know.
Moto G4 specs
According to Motorola, the new chipset for the Moto G4 will be the Snapdragon 617 1.5 GHz octa-core CPU with Adreno 405 GPU. This new processor took everyone by surprise as it was suspected it would contain the Snapdragon 430 processor.
The top model of this newest generation of the device, the Moto G4 Plus will come with 4 GB RAM with 64 GB internal memory. There will be variants of the G4 with memory, a 2 GB RAM version with 16 MB internal storage and a 3 GB RAM model with 32 MB internal memory.
The device will feature Turbo Charging for its 3,000 mAh battery. This battery size has been standard for flagship devices this year and comes as no surprise as AndroidPIT has previous reported this. Motorola claimed you can get six hours of usage with 15 minutes of charging. We'll see if this claim is true once we can test the phone.
Previous design rumors reported by AndroidPIT were confirmed today at the Motorola live event in India. Both the Moto G4 and G4 Plus will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD display. This is a major improvement over the previous generation of Moto G devices.
Moto G4 features
A bombshell from the event was the fingerprint sensor as it was understood that the G4 would contain it. But in a stunning annoucement, Motorola said the Moto G4 would not have the sensor and instead the Moto G4 Plus will have it.
While both the Moto G4 and G4 Plus will both come with a 5 MP front camera, the rear cameras will be different between the devices. The Moto G4 will have a 13 MP camera system and the Moto G4 Plus will have a 16 MP camera.
The Moto G4 Plus will feature laser auto-focus and PDAF as well as an LED flash. Motorola announced the G4 Plus lens will come with an f / 2.0 aperture. It will also feature HD video recording. The company did not give us many details on the G4 camera, instead deciding to focus on the Plus. We'll let you know about the camera and all the other features and specs when we have the device in-hand shortly.
