Motorola marked a major comeback in the Indian smartphone industry with the launch of Moto G, Moto X and the Moto E smartphone back in 2014. The most affordable of the lot, the Moto E met high demand when it was released in the country.
And now the company is preparing to bring the fourth generation of this entry-level device with a few upgrades inside the box. Leaks have already started making rounds on the Internet, and now a fresh leak has revealed the price and specifications of the Moto E4 and E4 Plus.
According to the German website Winfuture.de, the new Moto E4 is tipped to be the successor of the last year’s Moto E3. The smartphone is said to feature a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) LCD display and be powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737M quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The Moto E4 will come with 16GB of storage (further expandable via a microSD card slot). The smartphone will run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat. In terms of optics, the Moto E4 will sports an 8-megapixel rear sensor and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The new Moto E4 is said to carry a 2800mAh battery and will have 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC (optional), Wi-Fi 802.11n, and GPS in its connectivity option.
The bigger variant, Moto E4 Plus meanwhile, is said to pack a massive 5000mAh battery. The smartphone will feature a bigger screen size of 5.5-inch HD IPS (720×1280 pixels) display. The rear camera will accommodate a 13-megapixel lens. The device will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. It will be powered by the same MediaTek chipset like the one in the Moto E4, as per the report. The phone will have 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB storage (expandable with microSD card).
As for the pricing, the Moto E4 is expected to cost around EUR 150 (roughly Rs. 10,500), while the E4 Plus is said to come in two variants with the price starting at EUR 190 (roughly Rs. 13,300). The 3GB RAM model is tipped to cost higher. The Moto E4 will be available in Grey, Gold, and Blue colour variants, while the E4 Plus is tipped to be available in Grey and Gold.
Evan Blass earlier cited that the Moto E4 Plus will feature a Home Button in the front with the fingerprint sensor beneath it, while the Moto E4 will ditch the Home button suggesting that the fingerprint sensor might be placed at the back.
