As with most leaks, once it starts, it’s next to impossible to turn off the faucet. The same rings true about Motorola and Lenovo’s upcoming devices, the Motorola Moto G4 and the Motorola Moto G4 Plus. These devices have seen quite a few leaks over the last few weeks, all leading up to Tuesday’s expected announcement in India.

Our friend on Twitter, @evleaks found yet another render of what we expect to be the Moto G4, showing off just a portion of the front of the device. Two details about this render are questionable, as it only shows a portion of the front, and the wallpaper is that from Android Jelly Bean. What leads us to believe this is the lower end Moto G4 is the reference to “your little bro” with a link to a previous tweet with renders of what are expected to be the Moto G4 Plus.

The next piece of information is from the FCC where the devices passed through and have the model numbers of XT1622 (G4) and XT1642 (G4 Plus), with both being properties of Motorola Mobility.

Within the FCC file for these devices, we have a slew of test results and can see that the following bands will be supported:

  • GSM: 850, 1900
  • LTE Band 5, 7
  • Wi-Fi: 2.4GHz WLAN and 5GHz WLAN

While no pictures of the device can be found within the FCC reports, we do have a diagram of where the devices antennas will be located.

The final piece of information regarding the Moto G4 is a benchmark result from when the device supposedly passed through GeekBench.

According to these results, the device will be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, and feature an unnamed Qualcomm octa-core processor with approximately 3GB of RAM. This isn’t the first time that specs have popped up for the Moto G4 after the spec sheet made an appearance on Twitter

Motorola and Lenovo are holding an event in India this Tuesday, May 17th, where both of these are expected to be announced. We’ll be sure to have the full report on the new Moto devices once they’re announced, so stay tuned.
