Nougat-ready Moto G4 available for even lower $120 for Amazon Prime members

Technically, we’re yet to hear of a single Moto G4 unit updated to Android 7.0 outside countries like Brazil and India. And even there, the rollout is a very slow, gradual one, with Motorola probably testing the waters before spreading the Nougat-y love.

The Amazon Prime Edition could also need a bit of extra time compared to unlocked variants stateside to leave “archaic” Marshmallow software goodies behind, seeing as how its bootloader is uncharacteristically locked, and the e-commerce giant may decide exactly when that ad-feeding OS requires change.

Still, this is a mid-range phone guaranteed to receive build N enhancements around the world soon enough, and that’s a truly unique selling proposition. Especially through the end of the day, October 24, with Prime members qualifying for an $80 discount instead of “just” $50.

While an unlocked Moto G4 continues to fetch $200 on the manufacturer’s US e-store and at third-party retailers like Best Buy, the Amazon Prime Exclusive version sets you back $120 for a very limited time, “lockscreen offers” and ads included.

This is obviously the 16GB model, only available in black, but it also comes with a microSD card slot, 5.5-inch 1080p display, octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB RAM, 13/5MP cameras, 3,000 mAh battery, as well as full 4G LTE compatibility on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
