Motorola announced the new fourth-gen Moto G family of devices back in May, but the phones have thus far only come out in Brazil and India. US consumers will get their chance to pick up the new Moto G in just a few weeks. Motorola will begin selling the devices on July 12th with prices starting at $199.99.
Motorola's announcement of the impending release came with a big infographic about unlocked phones in the US. You can check that out if you want, but it's not a prerequisite. Motorola announced three versions of the Moto G4 originally, but it sounds like only the G4 and G4 Plus will be coming to the US next month (the G4 Play is a cheaper version of the device). The G4 has a Snapdragon 617, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The G4 Plus is the same except for a 16MP camera, an optional 4GB RAM upgrade, and front-facing fingerprint sensor.
The Motorola blog post seems to lack the nuances of pricing, but based on the Moto Maker site, the standard Moto G4 will start at $199 and the G4 Plus will be $249. The Moto G4 has a $30 upgrade for 32GB of storage from 16GB in the base model. The $249 G4 Plus includes 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, but for $100 more you get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Moto Maker includes all the usual color, engraving, and greeting options as well. The phones are available for pre-order from Motorola now, and will also be on sale via Best Buy, Amazon, and other retailers next month. Republic Wireless will have them on July 28th.
