Lenovo has officially launched the next generation Moto G models under its own brand but whilst still retaining the Moto name.
There have been some rumors about the upcoming Moto G4 and most of them have proved to be true. The Moto G4 will be available in two variants just like its predecessor, but the Turbo edition has been renamed as the Plus version. The Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus will offer exciting features like fingerprint sensor in the mid-range segment.
Some of the standard aspects that will make them extremely popular amongst value conscious buyers include a 5.5 inch display with full HD resolution. This is a massive jump from the predecessor which offered 720p resolution on a 5 inch display. Even though there has not been a huge jump in pixel density figures, this improvement is essential to keep up with the competition. The large display is protected by the Gorilla Glass 3.
As expected, these phones run on stock Android and this gives them the ability to offer the latest versions of the Android OS as soon as possible. The Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus will not come with unnecessary bloatware, which means blazing fast user experience even when not running on the top end snapdragon processor. Lenovo has made a substantial improvement in terms of processor, and the Snapdragon 617 range is used in the device. It has eight cores compared to just four present in the previous generation.
Just as before, there are two variants depending on internal memory which again alters the amount of RAM available. The base version offers 16 GB of storage and it has 2 GB of RAM, while the slightly pricier version offers 32 GB of storage and 3 GB of RAM. Storage is unlikely to be the decisive factor when choosing models, as the support for 128 GB of memory cards may render the additional storage ineffective especially in the wake of updates given to the android 6.0 in this regard.
The Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus come with a 3000 mAh battery, but the difference between the two models lies in the presence of a turbocharger in the pack of the Moto G4 Plus whereas it has to be additionally bought in the case of the Moto G4. The base Moto G4 Plus is priced at $200 whereas the 32 GB variant costs $225.
