Motorola Moto G 2016 (Moto G4) Release Date Price And Specs Rumours

We’ve got the Galaxy S72, LG G53, HTC 104 and Huawei P95 but what has Motorola got up its sleeve for 2016 in the smartphone market to follow up the Moto G 2015. Here’s what you need to know about the Moto G 2016 release date, price and specs rumours. Also see: Best Android phones 20166. Eyes are turning to Motorola, now under Lenovo, to see what new phones it will launch in 2016. A replacement for the popular Moto G line is extremely likely and could be just around the corner. Will it be the best budget phone of 2016 or is it moving into the mid-range?

It looks like we’ll be getting two Moto G’s this year, the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus with the number signifying that they are fourth-generation. Here we bring you all the latest rumours along with our expert analysis and comment on the Moto G 2016.

Motorola Moto G 2016: Release date and price

Although the third-generation Moto G7 was launched in July, it doesn’t look like Motorola is going to wait a whole year for launch a new model. According to rumours, specifically Roland Quandt8, the Moto G 2016 will arrive in May. It looks like there will be two models, the regular Moto G and the Moto G Plus, which will cost 240 and 280 Euros respectively, according to Quandt. That’s 190 in the UK so it looks like the Moto G price will be going up for 2016 if this rumour is correct.

Motorola Moto G 2016: Specs and features

As mentioned, it appears that there will be two Moto G 2016 phones the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus. Those probably won’t be the final names but that’s what we’re going wit for now. There’s not a great deal of information but Quandt reports that the Moto G4 will come with a large 5.5in screen, a 13Mp camera and 16GB of storage. Along with the Plus model, it will be available in black or white colours. There’s no mention of the Moto Maker which was made available for the Moto G 2015 to customise various elements.

We’re a bit apprehensive about the 5.5in display with the current Moto G at just 5in. This would mean the Plus wouldn’t actually be any bigger in this department, bucking the tradition which has been formed in the market.

The photo of the back, via nowhereelse9, shows the rear camera module similar to the LG G5 but vertical and with a single lens. It retains the style of the current Moto G but with the ‘M’ logo below. Only a few days ago, well-known leaker Evan Blass10, tweeted confirming the Moto G4 Plus showing a square home button containing a fingerprint scanner below the homescreen. Lenovo has already confirmed that Moto-branded devices will come with the sensor this year.

A commenter replied with both a photo while another confirmed they are testing the device at Merchandise Mart and said11: “for the moto g4 plus I can only go on what I see. And it was pretty darn nice. Expect a nice looking evolution in moto’s design language.”

It seems, via Quandt, that the Moto G Plus will feature a 5.5in screen along with a 16Mp rear camera and 16GB of storage. The oddity is that the screen size is the same as the regular version.
