In line with the recent news and rumours about the soon-to-be-launched Moto E4 and the Moto E4 Plus, a recent flurry of press renders confirm what has been long believed: the new Moto E4 and the Moto E4 Plus are stunners. Motorola has been on a roll recently with a number of phones set to release. We had earlier confirmed that the new Moto E4 had passed the FCC hurdle and was set to hit global markets soon. Before that, some other CAD designs and a 360-degree video of the upcoming budget devices have leaked.
Motorola is currently owned by Lenovo and has been looking to carve its own niche in the uber-competitive budget smartphone segment across the world. Noted tipster Evan Blass recently gave us a hint of how the two new devices could look like. The tweets he has posted suggest a marked departure in the design department as well as improved specs. The Moto logo is visible on the top of the new Moto E4 Plus and the Moto E4 carries the logo on the bottom.
Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus Specs and Features
Upfront at first glance is the front-facing fingerprint scanner with a LED flash squarely for the front-facing camera. The 3.5mm headphone jack is retained in the new handsets on the top edge. There are other features also visible at first glance, including the volume rocker and a textured power button, both on the right-hand edge. There is a micro-USB port on the bottom. On offer is a 5.2-inch display together with a 2.5D glass protection. Judging by the fingernail groove on the back, we deduce that the back panel might be replaceable.
Come to specs of the two phones and they are pretty much identical to what we get in other competitors. Both the Moto E4 and E4 Plus are said to arrive in the first half of this year, probably around June. Both of the two new devices are all set to come with either an HD or FWVGA display, which will depend on the model. Both of the models will be powered by MediaTek chipsets along with a 2,800mAh battery for the Moto E4 and a whopping 5,000mAh battery for the E4 Plus. Both new handsets will run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
