The basic model Moto G 4 16 GB remains out of reach of consumers and there were no details disclosed about its pricing and availability. They may have done so to sell out more of their higher cost devices to customers who are ready to pay some thousand bucks extra.
Price is still unknown, company has launched only some teaser posters on twitter. Moto G 4 would cost less than the available models 32 GB variant for Rs. 14,999 and 16 GB variant for Rs. 13,499. So the price will be around Rs. 11,000 as per our expectations.
For the affordable price tag, G4 cuts down some of features like,
- Absence Front mounted finger-print sensor on home button,
- No 32 GB variant (only 16 GB with 2 GB RAM),
- Reducing the camera sensor size to 13 MP instead of 16 MP
- Also, removing the laser focus-assist.
Moto G4 shares rest of features and specs with G 4 Plus like 5 MP fronf-facing camera with an 84-degree wide field of view and an f/2.2 aperture, option of inserting micro SD (upto 128 GB) to increase storage and user interface and operating which is again the stock Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow.
