Moto G4 and G4 Plus leaks: 5.5-inch displays, fingerprint sensor

Lenovo may launch two phablet sized phones named Moto G4 and G4 Plus next month, featuring home buttons with fingerprint sensors and redesigned cameras at the back.

French tech website NoWhereElse got their hands on a couple of images of what they termed as the Moto G 2016, revealing a square home button with an embedded fingerprint authentication system.

The website also noted that the new camera design in the handset resembles the one in LG G5, the difference being a vertical camera slot in place of a horizontal one in the latter.

The fact that Moto G4 and G4 Plus will feature embedded fingerprint scanners was also confirmed by Evan Blass on Twitter where he leaked a sketch of the front of the G4 with a square-shaped home button.

This is the first time that images of the upcoming Moto G4 are available on the web, but we are yet to get our hands on detailed specifications or unique features of the device. However, the closest anybody has gone so far is Roland Quandt of WinFuture who claims that both Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus will feature 5.5-inch displays and internal storage of 16GB each but their cameras will come with different capabilities.

As per Android Central, both Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus may launch as early as in May along with the Moto X3 which is expected to feature a smaller 5-inch display and a single SIM slot.

This isn't the first time that Lenovo will flirt with large displays in its Moto devices. In October last year, it launched the Moto X Force, a 5.4-inch phablet with a Quad HD display, a high capacity 3,760 mAh battery and a five-layer Moto ShatterShield screen that could withstand shocks and the heaviest of impacts.
