Separately, in a press statement, Amit Boni, Country Head, Motorola Mobility India confirmed the next Motorola smartphone’s availability via Amazon India, “We have witnessed tremendous growth in the e-commerce market and it will continue to be the dominating channel for us as we bring new products to the India market. Amazon.in is the one of the best online marketplaces in India and we are glad to announce that we have exclusively partnered with Amazon India for our next Motorola smartphone.”
Motorola had last month started sending media invites for an event on Tuesday in India. Although nothing was mentioned in the press invitation except for the date, the Lenovo-owned company is anticipated to launch the next-generation Moto G-series smartphone or the Moto G (Gen 4) in India first, something it has done before. The company is rumoured to introduce the Moto G4 Plus variant alongside, housing a fingerprint sensor in addition.
The Lenovo-owned firm has shared several teasers for the upcoming Moto G smartphone, contrasting its offering with others that hang while playing video games, switch off unexpectedly due to low battery, and ruin images because of slow camera autofocus.
The Motorola Moto G (Gen 4) and the Moto G4 Plus have leaked quite a few times recently via videos and images. However, none of the information has been confirmed by the company. The smartphone is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution display, an octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of inbuilt storage, and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The Moto G4 Plus is rumoured to sport a fingerprint sensor, and a 16-megapixel rear camera.
Previously leaked images of the white-coloured Moto G4 Plus showed a square-shaped fingerprint sensor placed as a home button, a speaker grille, a front-facing camera, and the rear camera with flash and autofocus sensors enclosed in a pill-shaped module and a dimple with the company logo below the camera.
