Images of the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus surface
Earlier this month, we passed along rumored specs for the Motorola Moto E4 and a couple of specs for the Motorola Moto E4 Plus. The latter will be powered by an unlnown MediaTek chipset. It also received clearance from the FCC, revealing that a 5000mAh battery powers the premium model. In comparison, the Moto E4 will sport a 2800mAh battery, a far cry from the record breaking (for Motorola) battery inside the E4 Plus. 

Let's face the facts here. Motorola wants you to buy the "Plus" model because it is more expensive. So when you look at the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus, you don't need a scorecard to tell you which phone is which. The cheaper E4 has the unsightly, thick bezels while the E4 Plus has more attractive thinner bezels, and a fingerprint scanner underneath the display. It also appears that the E4 Plus could have a front-facing flash on board. The size of the display on the E4 Plus could be slightly larger than the screen on the E4.

The Moto E4 will carry a 5-inch display with a 480 x 854 resolution (this is an entry-level phone after all). Under the hood you will find the MediaTek 6737m chipset, which contains a quad-core CPU, and a Mali-T720MP (600MHz) GPU. 16GB of native storage is included, and the camera combo from back to front is said to weigh in at 5MP and 2MP. Android 7.0 runs the show.

There is no word when the Moto E4 or Moto E4 Plus will see the light of day. Keep checking in for the latest rumors, news and images related to these two new Moto handsets.

Dunno if it is true or not, but has Lenovo killed its own mobile brand (the Vibe series) and merged it into Moto's portfolio or will there still be a K series?

Edit: Nevermind, according to an old article they are doing just that. Question is, it this a good move by Lenovo?

It definitely is, mate. Motorola branding has been known for at least two decades in majority of the world. Lenovo was bleeding money trying to advertise their own phones. Now they can just focus on marketing one brand which was already selling well in Latin America and India. They will have about 8-10 devices out at various prices and all of them competitive in their segment.
Moto Cs in entry level, Moto Es for budget, Moto Gs for lower mid to mid-range, possibly a Moto M which will be like a prettier Moto G, Moto X probably somewhere near Moto Z Play and then the flagships Z and Z Force.

The way Lenovo is managing Motorola brand , soon Lenovo will destroy Motorola brand too.

What is the point of releasing Moto M when you have Moto g series in same price. Moto e is already entry level or budget level. Now they have Moto c. Same goes for Moto x and Moto z play series . The overlapping products creates confusion in mind of customers.

The main strength of Motorola was to provide faster android updates which has suffered due to these unworthy expansion in products.

Motorola devices were considered as combination of good hardware and software. Gradually , Lenovo is changing it into only good hardware devices.

Is this "who has the biggest bezel" competition?

I think the Moto G/C/E design team has been asleep and collecting paychecks since 2013. C'mon Moto, it was ok back then, now it's just an old ugly design. Get modern.
