New Moto G devices unveiled for 2016

Moto G4Motorola is rolling out three new devices as part of the ever-expanding Moto G range this year, each of which should fit into a different niche in the market.

The standard Moto G4 comes with a 5.5 inch, 1080p screen, a 3000mAh battery and a specialised charger, which means that it can be plugged in for just 15 minutes and offer users a full six hours of usage before it gives up the ghost.

A Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor from Qualcomm and a selfie-friendly five megapixel camera round out its features, with a 13 megapixel primary snapper on the rear doing a good job of taking high-res stills and video clips.

The Moto G4 Plus is identical to its stable mate in every way, aside from the inclusion of a 16 megapixel camera and a fingerprint scanner.

The third and final new Motorola phone announced this month is the G4 Play, a cut-price device with a Snapdragon 410 quad core chispset, a 720p display resolution and 16GB of storage as standard.

In all, the appealing and customisable nature of the Moto G series should serve Motorola well in 2016, especially now that it is under the stewardship of Lenovo.
