Motorola Moto G4: Specs, price & availability in the Philippines

Posted on

Motorola has unveiled three upcoming handsets based of the popular G-line: Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play. Well, that's two more than what I expected.

Overview

Moto G4 Play. This is definitely the spiritual successor to original G handsets. It's the same size (5.0-inch) as the Moto G3 and, most likely, to be in the same price range. The Moto G4 and G4 Plus, on the other hand, essentially create a new line of handsets. These two have the bigger 5.5-inch display, has far more superior spec and will be more expensive. In case you're wondering, the "Plus" doesn't mean bigger as in iPhones; it means better spec (RAM, Storage and camera).

Availability

There's very little chance that these Motorola smartphones will ever be available here in the Philippines. It must be the lack of interest from the local market currently filled with iPhones and Samsungs and the cheaper handsets from unknown manufacturers.

As with the case of the G2 and G3, online sellers might sell a few of them. If they do show up in any of these stores, I'll be sure to update this post.
