Lenovo Moto G4 and G4 Plus goes official

The new Moto handsets under Lenovo’s supervision is now official and they are the mid-range offering of the brand under the G series.


First off is the Moto G4, which is a direct successor to Moto G (3rd Gen). It sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display topped with Gorilla Glass 3 and runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, continuing the Moto’s popularity of keeping up with the latest flavors.


Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core chipset and 2GB of RAM. Storage is either 16GB or 32GB and you still have the option to expand via a microSD card. There are 13MP rear and a wide-angle 5MP selfie camera.


On the other hand, the Moto G4 Plus has some bumped specifications over the former device. It has a better 16MP rear camera with hybrid autofocus (laser + phase detection) and a Pro mode to tinker with the settings. The sensor used is the OmniVision PureCell Plus with 1.3µm pixels and an f/2.0 aperture lens. There’s also a front fingerprint scanner to boast.


While the G4 Plus still uses the Snapdragon 617, it has more options when it comes to memory and storage. There’s 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB or the top model with 4GB/64GB. All model comes with a microSD card slot.

Both of them has the same battery capacity at 3000mAh with support for fast charging. Although, only the G4 Plus is bundled with a Turbo Charger out of the box.

The new smartphones will start at INR 13,499 (~Php 9,400) for the base 2GB/16GB Moto G4 Plus and INR 14,999 (~Php 10,400) for the 32GB/3GB. Pricing for the Moto G4 is yet to be unveiled.

    Kung ganyan nga ang price dito sa pinas that would sell. Sana di nila itaas masyado ang price pagkarating dito or magiging parehas lang ng past phones nila ang pagbili dito.

    moto g4 vs flash plus 2

    • hajinrei says:

      I would really consider this over Flash Plus 2. Given that alcatel has a history of abandoning their products and not releasing updates for their devices. 1 year na ko user ng flash plus and until now kitkat pa din OS ko. they promised a lollipop update but was never delivered. i fear the same thing can happen to flash plus 2 that’s why this time i’m weighing all the options when it comes to buying a phone.
