It was only a few days ago that we first heard the names Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus and we predicted that it wouldn’t be long until the next round of leaks appeared. That day has already come, with two new caught-in-the-wild shots of the Moto G4 showing up, detailing both sides of the first Lenovo-branded Moto device for 2016.
The most interesting of the two photos gives us our first clear look at the rear of the device, complete with a pill-shaped camera array. There are two unidentified sensors above the camera lens and what looks to be a two-tone flash beneath it.
The material on the back looks to be a rubberized plastic and the camera ensemble is now housed behind glass (what we’re hoping is Sapphire Glass). A mystery hole lies to the side of the camera and could be a pinhole mic, although its positioning is very strange indeed.
Another “mystery hole” sits on the front of the phone to the side of the physical home button. While it’s location makes more sense for a mic, it is also in a very odd position design-wise. It could also be an LED notification light, but we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out for sure.
The same familiar square-shaped finger scanner appears yet again, with its raised edges making it look like a clickable button of the Galaxy S7 variety rather than a capacitive sensor like that found on the OnePlus 2. I for one can’t see a USB port or speaker grill anywhere. While we can’t see any Lenovo branding in the photos it may well appear at the bottom on the rear of the device.
