The ever-so-popular and affordable Moto G family of smartphones from Motorola has gotten three new handsets which, the company expects, will take user experience to a whole new level. The company proudly announced the G4, the G4 Plus and the G4 Play on Tuesday.
These fourth-generation smartphones are siblings in different sizes and specifications. Each one bringing something different to the table, they are aimed for three different classes of consumers.
Starting with the plain G4, you can observe that it has a vivid 5.5-inch full HD display and a 13MP camera for crystal-clear. It’s powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon processor with a quick charge compatible 3000 mAh battery. Storage options are 16 or 32 GB (expandable up to 128 GB) with 2 GB of RAM.
It also comes in with TurboPower, a battery boost feature that can give you six hours of power in just 15 minutes. And in case you want to style the phone in a way that suits you, you can head up to Moto Maker and design your own back panels.
The G4 Plus on the other hand comes in with similar specs when compared to the basic fourth-gen Moto G, with a bumped up to 16MP. This camera does not just provide better capture quality, it has two additional features– rapid focus technologies, laser focus and phase detect autofocus. Moto even goes as far as to say that its “photo quality among the top smartphone cameras, ahead of iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and other phones that are more than twice its price.”
It also comes in with a fingerprint reader that can be used to wake up the phone or authenticate portals like Google Play.
The G4 Play, on the other hand, is meant for developing markets where budget phones are leading the market. It comes with a quad-core Snapdragon, 720p 5-inch display, 16GB of storage and a 2800 mAh battery.
The first two of the trio will be available starting today in Brazil and Moto G Plus will be available starting today in India. Moto says that both of these smartphones will be arriving to North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific very soon. The G Play is expected to see a global roll-out this summer.
