Geekbench test reveals 3GB of RAM for the Motorola Moto G4

A Geekbench benchmark test reveals some specs for the Motorola Moto G4, which is expected to be unveiled on May 17th during an event to be held in both New Delhi and Mexico. The test reveals that a Snapdragon 617 chipset will be under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU. 3GB of RAM will be inside, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

Previously rumored specs for the Moto G4 include a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. A 13MP camera should be found on the rear of the phone, with a 5MP front-facing shooter for selfies and video chars. Previous rumors had the Moto G4 carrying 2GB RAM and 16GB of native storage which means that either that rumor is wrong, or the phone that went through the Geekbench test is actually the Motorola Moto G4 Plus.

The premium version of the Moto G4 will offer a fingerprint scanner on the home button, and a 16MP rear camera. Both phones will feature the Quick Charge technology that allows the battery on board to charge up faster than it normally would.

The Moto G4 scored 719 on the single-core test, and a 3076 on the multi-core portion of the benchmark test.

Thanks for the tip!

I was under the impression G4 is 5.0" display and G4 Plus is 5.5" display. Bummer.

Probably just a typo, seeing as most phones come in 2 models now.

The problem with Qualcomm low end chips is that there GPU sucks. The SOC with A72 cores have terrible GPUs. Also why no SOC manufacturer is using 20nm?

Ruturaj i would recommend to stop spreading lies. I use a moto x play with SD615 and the GPU is more than fast enuf for 1080p gaming at 60 fps. Stop spreading lies.

yeah its fast.. even upper mid-ranger like Galaxy A8 (2015) use DS615.. but you should stop at "fast enuf".. 1080p at 60fps is too much unless you play some mini-game :-/

And here I hope I could play any open world games at 60fps at 1080p. . . on a computer of course. (not countering you though)

Ehat drugs you are using som? S650/652 has adreno 510 which is more then fast enough even for 1440p UI animations...

Yeah but not the 617, 28nm garbage and Adreno 405, those GPUs are good enough for a period, but then they can't really keep up.

Ruturag stated that mid range SoCs have terrible GPUs and why manufacturers are using 20nm. When Qualcomm has been using 14nm for some of their SoCs now. Not to mention some of the mid range SoCs are using a Arduino 506 GPUs. Only an idiots spread lies like ruturag, and morons will believe him. ;-)

The adreno 510 in the Sd 650-652 is good enough for gaming on a 1080p device but if it's QHD then you can forget about it. SD 650-652 and 820 are the only chips that should be used, 650-652 for 1080p devices and 820 for QHD. There would be no problem with gaming if companies did that.

Snapdragon 810 and 808 had inferior GPU and they did fine with games despite QHD.

I know for a fact that QHD phones with the SD808 suck, playing games on the G4 is laughable compared to the Nexus 5X. The Snapdragon 810 and it's adreno 430 is Qualcomm's second most powerful GPU so of course it can handle QHD with no problem.

The 5X and G4 have the same GPU. I have had no issues on the V10.

That's my point, they have the same GPU but thinks to QHD the G4's gaming abilities are severely lacking compared to the 5X which has an FHD screen. Go download real racing 3 , brave frontier, or gods of Rome on your V10 and try to play them on max setting, I bet money you will have issues playing them.

Most games have settings to reduce the resolution so this seems like a non issue to me. I'll try out those games you mentioned though I probably won't keep them since I'm not into those type of games aside from brave frontier which is described as a classic RPG so if it's anything like Final Fantasy I'll love it.

Yeah but some of them don't like Real racing and gods of rome, brave frontier does but I'm pretty sure you're V10 would still struggle to play it. Brave frontier is awesome and if you decide to keep it then add me and I will help you win a ton of beginner fights because you can bring friends with you on fights. My id 4966436725

Played "Gods of Rome" 20-30 minutes and I didn't see any issues (made it to the second Athena battle). I'm thinking that glitches and such have more to do with how well optimized a game is to the chip rather than screen resolution. I saw a similar thing on YouTube where a vlogger showed how much better "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" played on the G4 than the Galaxy S6. Most believe that it has to do with the game being more optimized to snapdragon than the Mali chip on the GS6. Although, I do have clean master game booster funtionality, not sure if that comes into play (most people say the clean master apps are useless). As for "Brave Frontier", haven't had a chance to play it. I might not be able too until August, when I'm finally done with nursing school.

Good to know.

You might want to check you facts. Mediatek Helio X20 and X25 uses 20nm SoC fabrication. Also Snapdragon 650/652 has decent chips, even the Kirin 950 is still good when compared to last years flagships.
