Motorola is a very well-known company, and it is owned by Lenovo now, as you probably already know. Motorola has introduced a number of devices last year, including their Moto G (3rd) budget smartphone. Motorola’s ‘Moto G’ devices are quite popular, and we’ve all been looking forward to the 4th-gen edition of this smartphone. We’ve seen quite a few leaks and rumors regarding this handset thus far, and it seems like both the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus might get announced on May 17th. Motorola has already announced the press event in India, and the aforementioned devices have been leaking out for weeks now. Motorola India and Amazon India have already (unofficially) confirmed via Twitter that the two devices are going to be available exclusively through Amazon in India, and all that remains thus far is for the company to introduce these two devices.
While we’re waiting for Motorola’s May 17th event, two Motorola devices paid a visit to the FCC, and it seems like we’re looking at the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus here. The XT1622 and XT1642 are the devices in question, and considering this is FCC we’re talking about, these are good news for those of you who live in the US and are looking forward to purchase one of the upcoming Moto G4 devices. This is still not an official confirmation or anything, but sure is a strong indication both devices will be available in the US. It is also worth mentioning that the Moto G4 has surfaced on Geekbench quite recently, and the listing has confirmed that the device will ship with the Snapdragon 617 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It is possible Motorola plans to release the 2GB RAM variant of this device as well, but we won’t know for sure until the company officially unveils the Moto G4.
The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus have leaked a number of times thus far, and even though most leaks suggested that the fingerprint scanner will be located up front, some of them revealed no physical keys on the front side of the device. It is possible that one of the two devices will sport a front-facing fingerprint scanner, while the other one might ship with a rear-facing one. All that we can do at this point is wait for Motorola to unveil the two phones, and judging by the available info, that will happen tomorrow (May 17th), stay tuned.
