It feels kinda uncomfortable using the “Moto G4” moniker, given that Motorola typically goes for the “Xth Gen.” suffix on the back of new Moto G offerings, but it’s good enough for a shorthand when blathering on about it.
A bigger name game comes down to its internal codename, speculated to be “Athene”. Quite a few components for said Athene smartphone have made their ways through India in the past month-plus and the site Moto G — yes, a whole site named for the Motorola mid-ranger — picked up on these listings.
The highlights include memory options of 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage and a 3/32 split. We’re also inferring that a lower-end Moto G would have a 13-megapixel main sensor while the more powerful one gets a 16-megapixel sensor with laser-assisted autofocus. Selfie-wise, there’s a 5-megapixel unit with pixels 1.4μm big. For what it’s worth, that sensor’s sourced from California-based OmniVision.
The emphasis has been on India for a device launch on May 17. It wouldn’t be too surprising if this entire phone gets a Make in India treatment.
