The rumor mill has started talking about the fourth generation model of Moto G. At the beginning of this year, Chen Xudong, senior vice president of Lenovo’s Mobile Business Group, stated that all the Moto-branded phones would feature fingerprint scanners. The leaked photos of Moto G (2016) suggest that it will arrive with a fingerprint scanner on its front.
The upcoming smartphone is expected to launch as the Moto G4 Plus. Recently, Evan Blass, a well known leakster, tweeted an image that showed the physical Home button of a phone named Moto G4 Plus. It indicates that the upcoming phone will feature a fingerprint reader embedded under a square-shaped Home button.
The rear side of the Moto G (2016) will allegedly bear the usual M (Moto) logo and a camera that is enabled with a single LED flash. However, there are two mysterious sensors placed above the rear camera. GSM Arena reported that the unknown sensors could be a laser autofocus system for the rear camera of the smartphone.
The Moto G4 Plus name sounds confusing as the previous Moto G phones have carried names like Moto G3 and Moto G2. The Moto G4 Plus name indicates that the company may release a regular version of Moto G, and the Plus variant would come with more advanced features like a larger screen, enhanced camera with laser autofocus and fingerprint scanner.
Motorola released the Moto G (Gen 3) and 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (Moto X Style) in July 2015. Hence, the company is expected to unleash 2016 models of Moto X, Moto G and Moto E by July this year.
Rumors suggest that the Moto X (2016) will feature a 5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 820 chipset, an enhanced rear camera with dual-tone flash and full metal chassis. The Moto E (2016) is expected to come with specs like 5-inch screen, MediaTek MT6753 SoC, 2GB of RAM and native storage of 16GB.
