Moto has been teasing the India launch of Moto E4 Plus, the budget smartphone with 5000mAh battery, over the past few days. Now, the company has finally confirmed the smartphone will hit the market via media invites mentioning the Moto E4 Plus India launch date as July 12. The price in India and availability details of the smartphone will be announced at the same event. The Moto E4 was reportedly made available offline in India at Rs. 8,999 earlier this week, so the Moto E4 Plus price in India would likely be higher than that.
To recall, the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus were both launched globally in June, and are priced at $129.99 (roughly Rs. 8,300) and $179.99 (roughly Rs. 11,600) respectively. The big highlight of the Moto E4 Plus is its 5000mAh battery, something that has been stressed in early teasers as well.
The Moto E4 Plus has a slightly bigger 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display. It will be powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 427 SoC in the US, and MediaTek MTK6737M chipset outside of North America. Apart from the 2GB/16GB variant, it has an additional 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant as well. The rear camera is bumped up to 13-megapixel with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus, and single-LED flash support.
The biggest USP of the Moto E4 Plus is 5000mAh non-removable battery that supports fast charging as well. The dimensions measure at 155x77.5x9.55mm, and the smartphone weighs 181 grams. In the US, the Moto E4 Plus will be available in Iron Gray and Fine Gold colour options. All the other specifications are identical to the Moto E4.
Compared to the Moto E4 Plus, the Moto E4 has a smaller 2800mAh battery, 5-inch screen, only 2GB RAM/16GB storage variant, and 8-megapixel rear camera.
