Motorola Mobility's Moto E4 will launch on July 17 and be priced at $149.99 CAD ($185) in Canada, industry insider Roland Quandt said on Sunday. The same source also shared a snapshot of the supposed specifications of the upcoming handset, corroborating many previous reports about Motorola's upcoming Android device. According to the screenshot, the Moto E4 will be powered by the MediaTek MT6737M system-on-chip (SoC), a 64-bit of silicon boasting the Mali-T720MP2 GPU and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at a maximum frequency of 1.25GHz. The device is also said to sport 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal flash memory expandable by up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. It's currently unclear whether the Lenovo-owned consumer electronics manufacturer will also release a variant of the Moto E4 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage or whether those specs will perhaps be reserved for a more expensive model of the upcoming Moto E4 Plus.
According to the newly leaked listing, the Moto E4 will ship with a 5-inch IPS LCD display panel with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 3. Previous renders of the device and the supposed pixel count of its screen indicate that the handset will feature a panel with a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio. The rear side of the Moto E4 is said to house an 8-megapixel sensor with autofocus support and an LED flash unit, while its top bezel should feature a 5-megapixel sensor. Motorola's upcoming entry-level smartphone is said to be powered by a 2,800mAh battery that will be removable and the handset will initially only be offered in Lunar Gray, the leaked listing indicates, adding that the phone will sport a 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth 4.2 support. Some Moto E4 models are also said to be NFC-enabled, depending on the market, though no other information on the matter has yet been revealed. Finally, the Moto E4 will allegedly run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box that will likely be similar to a stock build of Google's operating system.
The Moto E4 is just one of seven devices that the Lenovo-owned phone maker is expected to launch by the end of the year. More details on the company's upcoming products should be available shortly.
