During the recent ZUK Z2 Pro launch event in China, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing announced that Motorola will be unveiling something new and exciting on June 9. This could very well be Motorola’s latest flagship smartphone. Considering the launch date, the Moto X (2016) could also be among the first smartphones to run on Android N out-of-the-box.
Apart from the Moto X (2016), reports also claim that Motorola could launch Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus smartphones at the same event. Both devices have extensively leaked in the past few weeks, and leaked photos hint at a design with curved edges, matte finish, and a pill-shaped camera strip at the back. The Moto G4 Plus will retain a similar design language, but will add a fingerprint scanner placed below the display.
As per leaks, both smartphones are likely to feature a 5.5-inch display, and 16GB of onboard storage. The Moto G4 is likely to come with 13-megapixel snapper at the back, while the G4 Plus variant is likely to come with a 16-megapixel snapper along with laser autofocus.
Reports also state that both smartphones will be available in black and white colors, and prices are said to start from 240 Euros, which roughly translates to Rs 18,000. The Plus variant is likely to be priced around 280 Euros, or Rs 21,000 approximately.
