Moto G4 Plus To Receive Android Oreo Soon

Moto G4 Plus To Receive Android Oreo Soon

Motorola launched its Moto X4 smartphone at IFA 2017 and is now ready to bring the device in India.

One user wrote on Reddit: "Motorola makes good phones when it comes to hardware (the G3 2015 is wonderful for its budget pricing and is waterproof) but their update policy is simply frightful".

Motorola has been raked through the coals over the past few days for denying an Oreo update to owners of the Moto G4 series. In one of the tweet, it is clearly seen the dual camera so it can be expected that it will be Moto X4. But the list did not include the G4 series devices, which really disappoint the G series users.

The smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch FullHD display with a pixel density of 424ppi which is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass for protection against nicks and scratches. In terms of memory, the Moto X4 comes in two variants based on its RAM and native storage configuration: Moto X4 with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage (for the Europe, North America and Latin America markets) and Moto X4 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (for the Asia Pacific region).

You also get a dedicated 3 GB RAM alongside 32 GB of internal memory which is further expandable up to 256 GB via microSD card.

Coming to the camera specifications of the phone, the phone comes with a dual rear camera with 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The camera can shoot images in 4MP low light mode, Face filters, Beautification Mode and Professional mode.

When Moto G4 owners saw the list, they were outraged, and they were within good reason too. A fingerprint sensor is front mounted along with accelerometer, gyro, proximity and compass sensors. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11.ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC and USB Type-C port.

Moto X4 is backed by a 3000mAh non-removable battery which with its TurboPower technology gives 6 hours of power in 15 minutes of charging.

The handset is also IP68 water and dust resistant.

It would slightly be on the thicker side with 8 MM and a combined weight of 163 grams.
