It seems like Motorola's first ever metal-bodied mid-range handset, the Moto M will be getting a special edition variant. So, there is only one name under its segment, the Moto E4 Plus as it features a mammoth 5,000mAh battery. Under the hood, the device packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor bundled with 2GB of RAM, along with 16GB of built-in storage further expandable via microSD slot.
The Moto E4 Plus' big highlight is its massive 5000mAh battery, and Motorola is presumably hinting at that in its teaser on Twitter. Still, at $69.99, it's a pretty good starting price for a prepaid phone. On the software front, the device runs Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, baked with Google Assistant. In the Indian smartphone market, the Moto E4 Plus will likely to be priced somewhere in between the Rs 9,000 and Rs 10,000.
Though the Moto E4 has a 5-megapixel camera, it gets a subtle boost in quality due to the front-facing LED flash.
The Moto E4 Plus, which features a larger 5.5-inch display and 5,000mAh battery, is expected to arrive in the US later this summer.
The Moto E4 also does not feature NFC, meaning you can not use Android Pay or any other mobile wallet application. With only 2 GB RAM, it's not quite as eager to jump between idle apps, but it still takes quite a bit more effort to trip the phone up than I would've expected. With a support for 4G VoLTE, the device will have its fingerprint scanner just under the front display. The unlocked Moto G4 Play is available in the black and white color options.
With a 2800 mAh battery, you might not expect great endurance out of the Moto E4, but thanks to a power-efficient processor and low-resolution screen, it manages to last all day and then some. It measures 144 x 72.3 x10 mm and weighs 162 grams.
