Leaked Moto G4 prototype shows us a familiar device without a fingerprint sensor [VIDEO]


While we’d much rather be getting early looks at Motorola’s forthcoming Moto X flagship, getting a healthy dose of Moto G4 leaks day after day isn’t a bad alternative. A supposed prototype of the device has shown up in a video online. The first thing we notice is the complete lack of a physical home button / fingerprint sensor on the front. That’s because this is the base G4 model — it’s the G4 Plus that’s supposed to have the fingerprint sensor.

That aside, it largely resembles the device we’ve seen in past leaks. It ditches the dual front-facing speakers, and there’s a weird hole beneath the display which may be the device’s main microphone. The side edge has the power button sitting atop the volume rocker.

On the rear, we get a look at Motorola’s uninspiring camera hump and their big M logo, but there’s nothing much of noteworthy mention. We got a glimpse of the Moto G4’s software upon turning the device on, and thankfully all seems normal there — it looks mostly like vanilla Android with Motorola’s personal touches like Active Display baked in. Kudos to Lenovo for at least keeping Motorola’s spirit intact on that one.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
