Here is a brief roundup of all the rumors that may be true about the upcoming smartphones. Please do keep in mind that none of this has been confirmed officially by the manufacturer.
This time, it looks like the Lenovo-owned Motorola is looking to go with the all metal design for both of its smartphones. There have been rumors that the G4 Plus variant if launched, will have a fingerprint sensor included in it. The device is also supposed to have IPX7 certification, which means, it will be water-resistant up to 1 meter, for 30 minutes.
According to the leaked listings on eBay for the display panel, the device will support 5.0 inches wide 720 x 1280 pixels (~294 ppi pixel density) resolution display along with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
There is no information on the under the hood specifications of the device, however, it is expected that the device may launch in two memory variants of 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It is also expected that the devices will come with a microSD expansion slot, like its predecessors. According to some leaks, the G4 may come with an octa-core processor.
The G4 Plus is expected to have a 16MP rear camera along with a 5MP front-facing shooter, however, the regular G4 may feature a 13MP sensor at the back.
The battery specs of the device are not yet known.
