Lenovo has revealed the first phone under the “Lenovo Moto” brand entitled as the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, which are the successors to its Moto G3.
Both phones share similar features including a sharper 5.5-inch 1080p display as well as a high-end Snapdragon chipset. Both of these phones features improved camera and memory which was notably missing from previous generation Moto G devices.
Lenovo Moto G4 Plus
As rumored the higher end Moto G4 was touted to carry a “Turbo” surname but Lenovo has opted for “Plus” instead of Turbo. The Lenovo G4 Plus is a high-end model and features quite notable and impressive specs when compared with its lower end Lenovo G4.
The G4 Plus features a 5.5-inch 1080p display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which is an impressive change from its older Moto G3 featuring a 720p display. One of the noticeable change in Moto G4 includes a square fingerprint scanner below the screen which is absent from the lower end Moto G4. As claimed by Lenovo, the sensor can unlock the phone in 750ms.
The Moto G4 Plus also features an impressive 16MP primary camera at the back with hybrid focus (laser + phase detection) capable of recording video at 1080p. To be precise, the camera uses an OmniVision PureCell Plus sensor with 1.3µm pixels and f/2.0 aperture. Software wise there’s a manual control too known as pro mode. The phone has a 5MP camera up front for selfie lovers.
There’s also a bump in the hardware specs, as the phone is powered by Snapdragon 617 chipset with eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and Adreno 405 GPU. It’s an impressive upgrade from its previous Moto G3, since it featured quad-core CPU. The high-end model comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage including affordable variants including 2GB RAM accompanied by 16GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, thankfully with a microSD card slot. The whole phone packs a 3,000mAh battery and supports Qualcomm’s quick charge which will give 6 hours of usage in just 15 minutes of charge.
The Moto G4 will be exclusive to Amazon India with a price tag of INR. 13,500 for the 16GB base model, whereas the 32GB model, will cost you INR. 15,000.
Lenovo Moto G4
The Lenovo Moto G4 has pretty much similar features like its Moto G4 Plus, including Snapdragon 617 chipset, 5.5-inch 1080p screen and 3000mAh battery with quick charge support (but you have to buy a separate charger for Moto G4).
Storage wise, users will get 16GB and 32GB variants with microSD card support, however, the RAM remains to be 2GB only.
The camera on the Moto G4 is little bit downgraded from the Moto G4 Plus, with 13MP sensor at the back and 5MP wide-angle selfie sensor at the front. There is no fingerprint sensor on this model.
