Moto G4 Leaks With Redesigned Camera Module, Shows Fingerprint Reader On Its Front

Earlier this week we have tweaked with two new photos of the upcoming Moto G4, which has been leaked again, revealing its first clear look at the 2016 edition of the Motorola Moto G. Expected to see an announcement of a ‘Plus’ variant alongside the regular Moto G4 this year, if this new leak is anything to go by.

Shared a new screenshot of what so called to be the forth-generation Moto G, where you can clearly spot the fingerprint that Lenovo SVP Chen Xudong promised. The fingerprint scanner element is square-shaped and positioned on the front, and with that given, not entirely fair if it works as a button or not. From Lenovo itself, there was an official wording about all Moto-branded phones will have fingerprint readers and we saw the outline of one in a “Moto G4 Plus” leak.

Along with a microphone on the alleged Moto G4’s left portion, there’s a physical home button that will come equipped with a fingerprint sensor. At the back part, the phone has the camera assembly, module with a dual LED flash setup similar to those who have seen on older Motorola devices. This time, it is said the Moto G (4th-Gen) will have matte finish which is aftermarket made of glass. The camera on the back retains the vertical strip design and the two dots above the camera could be a Laser autofocus setup.

The rear of the leaked phone also shows up the usual Moto branding with the trademark logo, and the hardware doesn’t sport the usual textured back panel, instead is a smooth panel. Lenovo and Motorola to make the fingerprint scanner placement standard in upcoming line-up of Moto handsets.

Specs-wise, the Moto G4 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch display, 13MP camera, 16GB of internal storage and will cost 240 Euros ($271 approx.).

On the next list out, the Moto G4 Plus could hold a 5.5-inch screen, 16MP rear camera, 16GB ROM and will be priced at $316 (280 Euros approx).
