Famous Twitter leaker Evan Blass has posted an image of the bottom edge of a phone with a square home button which seems to be a fingerprint button. It’s the image of the alleged Moto G4 Plus and one of Blass’ followers has confirmed the name, saying that the phone is currently tested at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
Lenovo is the new owner of Motorola and has already confirmed that the upcoming Moto devices will come with a fingerprint scanner. While the Moto X line consists of flagships, the Moto G handsets have mid-range specs and mid-tier sizes. Apparently, in 2016, the manufacturer will bring a phablet version for the fourth generation Moto G, which will be named “Plus”.
According to rumors, the Moto G 2016 will have a 5.5-inch display, an internal memory of 16GB, a rear camera of 13MP and will cost 240 Euros in Europe. The Plus variant will have the same screen size and storage, but its rear camera will support a higher resolution of 16MP and will have a similar price tag. Motorola hasn’t commented on these rumors, so we suggest you to take them with a bit of salt.
