A few months of silence around where Lenovo would take the Moto G lineup after the Motorola acquisition are being broken today with the leak of images that allegedly show the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus in the flesh. It was recently revealed that the Moto G4 would feature a fingerprint sensor, which is being confirmed by the leaked images.
Lenovo seems to be taking a different approach to the fingerprint sensor design – it’s built into a squarish home button that’s built into the device at an angle, a look that is likely going to appeal to young audiences that have primarily been the focus for the Moto G lineup. The back has been redesigned as well, with the camera and flash now lined up vertically in a single strip at the middle.
In terms of hardware, the Moto G4 and G4 Plus are said to feature 5.5-inch displays, 13 and 16-megapixel rear cameras, and 16GB of internal storage, along with Euro 240 and Euro 280 price tags. Both handsets will apparently go on sale in May in black and white color options. All in all the Moto G lineup looks set for a major revamp, and it will be interesting to see how Lenovo takes one of the most popular affordable smartphone series forward.
Moto G Plus: 5.5in, 16 MP cam, 16 GB. 280 Euro. Moto G 4th Gen: 5.5in, 13 MP cam, 16 GB. 240 Euro. both black or white. available May. boom.
