Motorola has announced new additions to its popular G-series of smartphones, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. This latest generation of Moto G phones offers larger displays and higher resolutions than its predecessors—a 5.5" panel on each that boasts full HD (1920 x 1080) graphics. Powering both the G4 and G4 Plus is a Snapdragon 617 Octa-Core CPU that’s supported by 2GB of RAM, with certain G4 Plus configurations getting 4GB. You can customize the storage capacity, as well, with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB options available. Both models benefit from improved battery performance. Each phone features a bigger 3,000mAh battery and utilize TurboPower for fast charging, which promises 6 hours of use on just 15 minutes of charging.
Although they share several performance specs, what primarily separates the G4 and G4 Plus is the camera setup. The G4 Plus offers a powerful 16MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, rapid-focus technology, and a bevy of other photo-friendly features built in. Meanwhile, the standard G4 offers a slightly less powerful 13MP rear shooter, but is equally equipped with camera enhancements, including color-balancing dual LED flash, Auto HDR, and more. Both models use a 5MP wide-angle front lens that’s equipped with a display flash, making it great for selfies, even in low-light situations.
In addition to the difference in rear lens strength, the G4 Plus also features a built-in fingerprint reader, which adds an additional layer of convenience and security to your phone. The fingerprint sensor is specially configured to recognize your fingerprint, no matter which way you’re holding it.
Both the G4 and G4 Plus are coming soon to B&H Photo and will be available in various color and memory configurations.
