Motorola is sending out press invites for an event scheduled on July 12, after having teased the launch of Moto E4 Plus in India since it was first launched globally last month. The official invite by the Lenovo-owned company comes with the caption, “Say hello to the new Moto E4 Plus 12 July 2017 #PowerPlus.”
Motorola had unveiled its Moto E4 along with the Moto E4 Plus in its global launch last month. Despite there being no mention of the Moto E4 in the media invites, it is most likely possible that the Moto E4 smartphone will also be released alongside the E4 Plus on the said date. Despite being officially announced, it is reported that the Motorola Moto E4 is available in a few retail stores in the country well ahead of the launch date, and is priced at Rs. 8,999. The price tag is approximately same as the international pricing and going by this trend; we can expect the Moto E4 Plus to cost around Rs. 10,000 (USD 159) in India.
At a glance, the new Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus look a lot similar in the design segment and also share similarities with the Moto G5 series devices. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the home button up front, and also, both phones boast of a waterproof nano-coating, which is unusual for the asking price.
When it comes to the specs, the Moto E4 Plus flaunts a 5.5-inch HD (1080 x 720 pixels) display screen. Internally, the device is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 chipset, but in India, the device will be launched with MediaTek MT6737 chipset. Motorola initially launched two storage variants of the E4 Plus – 16GB with 2GB of RAM and 32GB with 3GB of RAM, and will probably launch both variants in India as well. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
The Moto E4 Plus features a 13MP camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture and autofocus, along with a 5MP front-facing camera with a LED flash for selfies. The handset takes its juice from a massive 5,000mAh battery that comes with fast charging support.
As for the Moto E4, this 5-inch smartphone has an HD display and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC (for US marker) under the hood. Currently, the smartphone is available in only 2GB RAM option with 16GB internal storage, further expandable via microSD card slot.
Other specs include an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera with LED flash, a 2,800mAh battery, and connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, 4G LTE and dual-SIM support. The Moto E4 too runs on Android 7.1 out of the box.
