Mumbai: Clearing the recent rumours regarding its latest smartphones, Lenovo-owned Motorola finally on Monday launched the G4 and G4 Plus in India.
While both the devices were announced today, only the G4 Plus will be going on sale starting midnight exclusively on Amazon; the G4 will be available starting next month.
Surprisingly, both the smartphones look similar to their predecessor G3; however they are indeed sleeker and come along with enhanced camera capabilities.
Moving on, the Moto G4 Plus has also been further segregated into two versions. The G4 Plus 16GB along with 2GB RAM has been priced at Rs 13,499 and people looking to buy the larger storage variant along with 3Gb RAM need to shell out Rs 1,000 extra. Both the handsets can be expanded to 128GB via external microSD card.
The device perfectly blends into the mid-ranged smartphone market, which is massively popular among Indian customers. The G4 Plus is all set to take on Xiaomi, LeEco, Meizu, OnePlus and brands alike.
In terms of display, the G4 Plus features a 5.5-inch HD display with a pixel density of 401ppi and comes with additional Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Another welcome feature on this handset is the integration of a fingerprint scanner; this is the first Moto device to offer one.
The square-shaped home button doubles up as the fingerprint scanner and it can store up to five different fingerprints.
Moving on to the core specifications, the G4 Plus is powered by a Snapdragon 617 SoC, along with 2/3GB RAM and 16/32GB storage depending on the model you choose.
Featuring a 16MP camera primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and laser Auto-focus, users can expect the camera to be extremely good in most conditions. The 5MP front snapper on the device is also decent and commensurate to the price.
Support for VoLTE also makes this device different from previos Motorola devices. The G4 also equips a 3,000mAh battery, which is much better than the one offered on the G3. The smartphone also features Turbo Charging, which can offer 6 hours usage after 15 minutes on charging.
Lastly, the smartphone runs on the latest version of Android Marshmallow (v6.0) along with its native Moto Pure UI on top.
