Motorola Moto G 3rd generation
The new Moto G4 is slated to come in two versions IBTimes UK

A new image has leaked of the fourth-generation Moto G, which is rumoured to be launched either on 17 May or at Lenovo's upcoming conference in June. Well-known tipster Evan Blass has tweeted a picture of a Motorola phone saying it is the yet unreleased G4.

The Moto G4 will be the fourth release of the G series from Motorola, one of its highest selling lines. Although there has been only one Moto G released every year with the last being the Moto G (3rd generation) in 2015, this time reports indicated there may be two Moto G models - Moto G and Moto G Plus.

A Geekbench listing had earlier claimed that the base model for Moto G4 will be powered by a Qualcomm chipset most likely to be the Snapdragon 430 or Snapdragon 617. A 2GB RAM is expected to power the device and it will run on the latest Android 6.0.1 OS. As for the higher version, the Moto G4 Plus, there will likely be a higher capacity of RAM. The internal storage will also vary for both the models.

While Moto G4 may not get a camera upgrade, the G4 Plus is expected to have a front camera close to the 8MP mark. The screen size for both the devices will definitely be above 5 inches and according to tipsters the Moto G4 in particular could have a 5.5-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Also, the Moto logo that looks like an inverted bat wing may be pushed to the upper left corner of the display instead of the back where it currently exists.

The release date for the device is still under speculation but from company announcements it seems it will either be in May or in June. An invite has been sent by the company to journalists in India for an event on 17 May, which many think will be for a device release. On the other hand, reports say the device may not be released until the first week of June when Lenovo holds its developer conference.
