The famous Moto G series is about to unveil its latest flagships, the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus. While it can’t be said that the latest iterations of this series have been widely awaited, it is certainly true that the Moto G series has its fan-following. It is still one of the most successful smartphone series and it continues to garner interest every time a new iteration is unveiled. Well, this time we have two new ones. Let’s take a quick look at the specifications on these phones.
Specifications – Motorola Moto G4
The Motorola Moto G4 has a 5.5 inch display with a pixel density of 401 ppi. The display gets its protection against scratches and cracks thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology. The Moto G4 comes with a 1.5 GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with an Adreno 405 GPU to boot. The powerful processor on the Moto G4 is supported by a 2 GB RAM. The internal storage on the phone is a standard 16 GB but it can be expanded up to 128 GB via a microSD card slot.

The Moto G4 comes with a 13 megapixel primary camera dual-tone LED flash, full HD recording, and digital zoom. The secondary camera is 5 megapixel and more than suffices your selfie needs. The phone weighs a mere 155 gram which is pretty good for a 5.5 inch form factor. This is a dual-SIM phone and it is 4G enabled, so there are connectivity options to choose from. The battery capacity on the phone is 3000 mAh and supports Turbo charging. The phone is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
Motorola Moto G4 Plus
Interestingly enough the Moto G4 Plus has pretty much the same specifications as its namesake cousin. The only real difference between the two phones is the primary camera. The Moto G4 Plus comes with a 16 megapixel primary camera thereby further enhancing the camera capability in the Moto G series. Another neat feature on the Moto G4 Plus is the fingerprint sensor.

Generally the “Plus” variants from most brands tend to cite a larger display as the “plus” factor in the variant but Motorola and Lenovo have decided to take an approach less traversed and are using the primary camera specification as the additional feature to engage users with the Moto G4 Plus.
I am not sure how effective this strategy will prove to be but one thing is certain that if the phones are priced too far apart not many Indian smartphone consumers are likely to opt for the Moto G4 Plus based purely on what appears to be a slight increment in camera specs, at least from a regular consumer’s perspective. If specifications are the main motivation for buying a smartphone then the Indian consumer is used to making smartphone upgrade choices based on screen sizes and battery capacity.
The buying decision of very few consumers is likely to be influenced by an increment in primary camera specification. We should keep in mind that the pricing of phones is a huge factor in the Indian sub-continent. Unless there is a breakthrough technology involved, a balanced approach works better for smartphone brands in India.
