The king of cut-price smartphones is back, and this time it’s packing a fingerprint sensor.
Motorola pulled back the curtain on not one, but two new Moto G models this afternoon, and both look like absolute corkers.
Want a cheap and cheerful Android phone that won’t let you down? That’ll be the Moto G4. For your cash, you get a 5.5in 1080p screen, Snapdragon 617 CPU and a 3000mAh battery that should get you through the whole day on a single charge.
It’s got a 13MP camera sensor on the back, runs a nearly stock version of Android Marshmallow, and has 16GB of on-board storage for filling with music, photos and apps.
We'll only know its price in June when the product is officially available for purchase, but it looks like Moto is getting ready to set the bar for mid-range phones yet again.
Maybe mid-range isn’t enough for you though. That’s where the G4 Plus comes in.
It’s got the same basic spec as the vanilla G4, only it swaps out the 13MP camera for a 16MP snapper, complete with f/2.0 aperture, laser and phase-deec autofocus, and larger pixels for better low-light shots.
Motorola reckons it scores better in the independent DxOMark photo test than an iPhone 6s Plus, which is pretty damn impressive for a sub ₹15,000 phone.
You also get a fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone and storage gets doubled to 32GB. This model comes with 3GB of RAM at a price of ₹14,449. There's also a 16GB flavour available with 2GB of RAM for an enticing ₹13,449
Unlike the Moto G which doesn't hit shelves before June, the G Plus goes on sale at midnight tonight exclusive on Amazon. As always, there's a bunch of bundled offers to sweeten the deal.
Stick around for some first impressions a little later today.
