Motorola has released its Moto G4 handset in May 2016 and now some new rumors have surfaced on the internet, claiming that the company is preparing to launch a Moto M smartphone. Today we will compare these two devices and let you decide if you want to wait for the Moto M to get released or just purchase the Moto G4 right away.


The Moto G4 measures 153×76.6×9.8mm and weights 155 grams. It has a minimalist design, featuring a plastic rear panel with rounded edges and has a front-facing speaker on top of the display. Also, it’s water resistant, but you shouldn’t try your luck and throw it in the pool, because it will surely die within a few minutes. On the other hand, the Moto M is slimmer as it measures 151x75x8mm, but we’re not sure how much it will weight. While Samsung has inspired other manufacturers to adopt the glass and metal design, HTC’s One lineup has become a source of inspiration for other manufacturers, who liked the full metal design with two horizontal lines on the curved back. The Moto M looks similar to the One M9, but it has a fingerprint scanner below the vertical camera module.


Both devices come with an IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The Moto G4 features a Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 chipset, a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz, an Adreno 405 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The Moto M will come with a Mediatek MT6750 chipset, an octa-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.9GHz and 3GB of RAM.


The Moto G4 has been released in two internal storage variants of 16GB and 32GB which you will be able to expand up to 256GB using a microSD card. The Moto M will be released with an internal storage of 32GB, but it is not sure yet if it will feature a microSD card slot or not.


The Moto G4 sports a primary camera of 13MP that features dual-LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging, face detection, auto-HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5MP. The Moto M will come with a better primary camera of 16MP that will feature LED flash, geo-tagging, autofocus, HDR, panorama, face detection and a secondary camera of 8MP.


Both devices are powered by a non-removable battery of 3000 mAh.
