Lenovo has officially unveiled the fourth iteration of the Moto G. Aptly dubbed the Moto G4, there is now a Plus variant of the device; the latter is packed with a fingerprint sensor as well, among other things.
Unlike the previous generation Moto G, the Moto G4 and G4 Plus are now powered by a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, which is paired with up to 4GB of RAM – the lower-end G4, unfortunately, can only be equipped with 2GB of RAM. Other specifications of both devices include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, up to 64GB of internal storage (the G4 only comes in 16GB and 32GB of storage), a microSD card slot, and a 3,000mAh battery.

What differentiates the Moto G4 from the Moto G4 Plus are two things: as mentioned previously, the G4 Plus has a fingerprint sensor integrated into the odd square-shaped home button, while the same feature is not available on the G4. Other than that, the G4 Plus also has a more capable 16MP rear camera with laser – and phase detection – autofocus – the G4 only has a 13MP rear shooter, much like its predecessor. As for the front-facing camera, both models share a same 5MP sensor.
As usual, the local availability and retail prices of the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus have not been announced yet, but they will be available in the UK from early June onwards from 169 British pound (about RM985) for the G4. The G4 Plus, on the other hand, will retail from 199 pound (around RM1,160).
