The Third generation of Moto G has been unveiled in July 2015, but the successor might arrive one month earlier, according to the latest rumors. There are many leaked images and details about the upcoming Moto G4, which will have a Plus variant, but other than fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button, there are no other details revealed in a leaked image of the Moto G4 Plus.
Yesterday, Lenovo, the new owner of Motorola has launched the ZUK Z2 Pro with a Snapdragon 820 processor and 6GB of RAM, and with this occasion, CEO Yang Yuanqing said that on June 9, Motorola will unveil a new and exciting device. He didn’t give more details, but based on the increasing number of leaks, without a doubt, he was referring to the Moto G4.
According to rumors, Motorola will ditch the plastic rear panel in favor of a metallic one, but it will bring back the camera module strip, which has two dots above the sensor. From the leaked images, the home button has a square shape, but it clearly hides a fingerprint scanner with a similar configuration to Apple’s Touch ID, while in other photos, on a desk are strung together shells with a variety of bright colors.
Later this year, Qualcomm will release the Snapdragon 823 chip, but rumors say that the Moto G4 will be available in two variants of processors: Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 with four cores clocked at 1.2GHz or Snapdragon 650 with two cores clocked at 1.7GHz and four cores clocked at 1.2 GHz. While the smaller Moto G4 will support 2GB of RAM and will be powered by a 2650 mAh battery, the Moto G4 Plus will house 3GB of RAM and a bigger battery of 3000 mAh. The rear camera will support a resolution of 13MP and there will be only a single speaker on the back. As for the screen, the Moto G4 will have a 5-inch one with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels, while the Plus version will have a 5.5-inch display with a Full HD resolution.
