Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus Unveiled


After launching a brand new, super cheap Moto C series of affordable smartphones and Moto Z2 Play, Motorola has just refreshed its E series with the launch of Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus.

The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus are for people looking for something better than Moto C but at the price point lower than G series. The Moto E4 Plus is the one that could totally steal the show. It succeeds the Moto E3 Power in a very right way with its huge battery. The E4 twins have identical hardware but are differentiated by their displays, batteries, and cameras. Their designs are in line with 2017 Motorola phones like Moto G5, Moto C, and Z2 Play.

The Moto E4 Plus has a 5.5-inch display whereas the regular Moto E4 has a 5-inch display, both with 720p HD resolution. With the Plus variant, you get a whopping 5,000 mAh battery while with the smaller sibling settles you’ll have to be content with a mere 2,800 mAh one. Both of them have 5MP front cameras, but the Moto E4 has 8MP rear camera and the Plus model has a slightly higher 13MP camera. None of them can shoot videos in more than FullHD.

So that was about the differences between two variants. Except that, they share exactly the same spec sheet. There’s quad-core, 1.4GHz Snapdragon 427 processor mated to 2GB RAM powering both the phones. There’s fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button. The E4 siblings still use the good old’ microUSB port and retain the 3.5mm audio jack. There’s support for Bluetooth 4.1 LE and of course, 4G LTE. They will ship with Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box.

The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus will cost US$130 and US$180 respectively which is pretty decent provided the features they pack along with Motorola’s reliability.
