Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus Launched in India: Price, Specifications, and More
Highlights
  • Moto G4 Plus price in India was announced by the company.
  • Moto G4 price or availability was not revealed by the company.
  • The dual-SIM smartphones run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Motorola at its New Delhi event on Tuesday launched the fourth generation Moto G smartphone in India in two variants, as expected, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. Motorola has not revealed the Moto G4 price in India, or its availability details. The Moto G4 Plus on the other hand has been priced at Rs. 13,499 for its 2GB RAM/ 16GB storage variant, and Rs. 14,999 for its 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant. It will be exclusively available from Amazon from Wednesday (Tuesday midnight) in Black and White colour variants.

The company said pricing of the Motorola Moto G4 will be provided closer to launch. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are nearly identical in terms of specifications, however, there are slight differences.

The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based Motorola Moto G4 Plus is a dual-SIM (Micro-SIM cards) smartphone that features a fingerprint sensor on the home button. It bears a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display with a pixel density of 401ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 (MSM8952) SoC coupled with an Adreno 405 GPU and a choice of either 2GB or 3GB of RAM.

The Moto G4 Plus (seen below) bears a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and laser autofocus, apart from a dual-LED colour-balancing flash. It sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with an 84-degree wide field of view and f/2.2. As we mentioned, it will be sold in two inbuilt storage options (16GB and 32GB) that are expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).

The smartphone supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Micro-USB, 3.5mm audio jack, and GPS/ A-GPS. The Moto G4 Plus weighs in at 155 grams, and measures 153x76.6x9.8mm, with its thinnest point being 7.9mm thick. It is powered by a 3000mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to 24 hours of mixed usage battery life. A TurboCharger is bundled with the Moto G4 Plus, and is said to provide 6 hours worth of charge in 15 minutes. Sensors on board include the accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor.

The Moto G4 sports the same specifications as the Moto G4 Plus, but features a 13-megapixel rear camera (with an f/2.2 aperture) instead of a 16-megapixel offering, and ditches the laser autofocus. It has no fingerprint sensor, and only comes in 2GB RAM/ 16GB storage variant. Notably, both smartphones support 4G on one SIM card slot, and 3G on the other.

The Lenovo-owned company is also touting the 'dual-SIM with intelligent calling' functionality on both smartphones that allows users to assign contacts to a SIM card, enabling them to switch between two call plans for business and home, for example.

Alongside, Motorola also announced its M4DE programme for smartphone accessories, which certifies them to work with Motorola products.
