Hot on the heels of their Moto Z2 Play launch, Motorola has gone to the lower end of their range announcing the update E series line-up with two phones: the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus.
The phones offer a great looking spec sheet with a lower end price with the Moto E4 priced at $129.99USD (around $172AUD) while the Moto E4 Plus is priced at $179.99USD (around $239AUD).
The specs are different for each phone, though the styling seems the same for both handsets. The Moto E4 is the smaller of the two with a 5″ display, while the E4 Plus goes for a larger 5.5″ display, though both are only HD (1280×720) resolution. The Moto E4 has a disappointing 2,800mAh battery, while the larger Moto E4 Plus jams in a 5,000mAh battery for true all-day usage and is paired with a 10W rapid charger for super fast charging.
Both models appear to have a fingerprint sensor, and the camera should be quite good given our positive results with the latest G series phones. A 5MP adorns the front of both the E4 and E4 Plus, while the rear camera goes from an 8MP sensor on the E4 to a 13MP sensor on the E4 Plus.
Want specs? Here’s a comparison:
Motorola has done well launching the E series with Android 7.1, though we’ve heard previously that they’ll be bundling security updates in 3 monthly updates instead of every month. Whether we’ll see a bump to Android O is another query we’ll be putting to Motorola if they do launch the phones here.
We’re waiting for local availability confirmation from Motorola Australia, but given the Moto E series have been on-sale previously here in the past, signs are good we’ll see the 4th generation here too.
