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.
