While the original Moto G is now nowhere in the race, Lenovo-owned Motorola is set to expand its presence in the market with not just one Moto G successor but two all-new models — the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. Both the new Moto G4 handsets will be exclusively available in the Indian market through Amazon India.
The Moto G4 with 16GB storage will go on sale in India next month. But the Moto G4 Plus with 16GB and 32GB storage options will be available starting midnight tonight.
Unlike the first-generation Moto G that had 11.5mm thick body, the Moto G4 models are designed to match the demand of slimline smartphones with merely 7.8mm thin chassis. There is also a metal frame and a textured finish back to offer high-end feel in the hands. Notably, the Moto G4 Plus has a fingerprint sensor to deliver you a distinguished experience from any of the previous Moto G model.
Hardware-wise, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus both sport a 5.5-inch IPS display with 1920 x 1080 pixels (full-HD) resolution. The smartphones also have a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset with an octa-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. Further, there is 4G LTE support and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Moto G4 has a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor with F2.2 aperture, whereas the Moto G4 Plus features a 16-megapixel OmniVision rear camera sensor along with laser autofocus and phase detection autofocus support. To capture selfies, both have a 5-megapixel camera sensor on the front.
Moto G4/G4 Plus specifications:
- 5.5-inch 1080p display
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS with Moto Pure
- Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor
- Up to 3GB of RAM, 32GB expandable storage

- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS, MicroUSB port

The new Moto G models run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, with Moto Pure skin on top. Additionally, there is dual-SIM support and TurboPower charging technology to deliver up to six hours of backup with just 15 minutes of charge.
