Most of the big names in the smartphone industry have already announced or released this year’s flagship devices. Now we can move on to the other devices of this year. The Moto G series has been Motorola‘s most important smartphone range and the smartphone range has been well received because of its stock Android software. Competitive specifications and low prices have also made the range successful. There are a lot of hopes set on this year’s Moto G4.
According to leaks, the Moto G4 is expected to get some serious feature updates. One of the major updates will be a fingerprint sensor. Images of the Moto G4 that have been popping up on the internet for awhile, show the device having a square-shaped fingerprint sensor.
The images that have surfaced display the 4th generation Moto G in all its glory. There are a lot of details visible in the leaks. The recent leaks place the fingerprint scanner at the bottom-front of the device like Previous images of the Moto G4. Furthermore, the device displayed in the images is quite large. This affirms the rumours of the existence of a Moto G4 Plus model.
Earlier images had displayed the front of the device and the fingerprint sensor. But, the back panel was not displayed. Recent leaks show that the back of the smartphone has a redesigned camera housing. The camera is situated in a vertical pill-shaped panel. The panel is of black glass instead of matte-finish like in previous devices. Same as before the camera is accompanied by a dual LED flash. The images also show a new addition beneath the camera, a small round that is speculated to be a sensor of some sort.
By the looks of it, the texture of the back panel has also been changed. The surface of the Moto G4 appears to be completely smooth. Unlike the previous devices in the Moto G, range which had a grippy rear with raised diagonal lines. Moreover, the front panel has a microphone hole right beside the fingerprint sensor.
With all these Moto G4 leaks popping up, WSJ’s report that stated that Lenovo will launch a Motorola handset in July this year seems believable. The big question is whether Lenovo will continue with Motorola’s strategy of offering multiple design and customization options, or will it join the black and white only trend.
