Motorola Moto E4 Plus surfaces, 5000mAh juicer in tow

Earlier this month, we all were flabbergasted and astounded when the FCC documentation for the Motorola Moto E4 Plus revealed that the phone would carry a 5000mAh battery. While Motorola has shoehorned high capacity batteries into past DROID models, this would be the largest battery every carried by a Motorola handset eclipsing the 3900mAh cell found on the Motorola DROID Turbo. And the Moto E4 Plus, unlike the DROID Turbo, is far from being a flagship model.

Images of the Moto E4 Plus were discovered today, and one picture shows that the back cover is removable. This would allow users to swap out a dead battery for a fresh one. Besides the huge cell, the Moto E4 Plus is rumored to carry a 5.5-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. Powering the handset will be the MediaTek MT6737M SoC containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, and the Mail-T720MP2 (600MHz) GPU. It will come with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.

The Moto E4 Plus is said to feature a 13MP rear-facing camera with a 5MP camera in front for snapping selfies and handling video chats. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed. The phone is expected to launch first in Europe before making its way to other regions. It is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $207 USD.

All day battery life regardless of how you use it, could probably play a game for 12 hours straight if you really wanted to. For me, 2 or 3 days easy.

1.5 days for heavy usage.

when a 5.5 inch phone can use a 5000 mah battery safely but a 6.2 inch phone "s8+" with the same footprint uses a 3500mah cause its "enough, safe" ....

screen size ≠ phone size.. I'm sure both phone didn't that much different in physical size.. and this phone is (most likely) thicker than S8+... and S8+ packs more components inside it, if you ever watch S8 teardown, you can see it's battery width is just around 2/3 of smartphone width, compared to the battery in this phone which eat all space from left to right..

they have a really close physical size to each other and even if it had more components they could've easily fit a 4000 mah battery " SAFELY " , the galaxy s8+ is a fantastic device but if consumers dont push companies to use bigger batteries then we will never get better battery life

they will if they can... no reason they didn't do that, but they simply can't.. the space for battery is really limited since they need to include all extra flagship's feature (NFC, MST, DAC, heatpipe, barometer, iris scanner, bigger main camera with OIS, rear FPscanner, heart-rate sensor, wireless charging, etc).. take a look at xiaomi, they use 4000mAh battery on their 5inch entry level phones but their 5inch-5.5inch flagships only have ~3000mAh battery their only option is to make thicker phone to fit bigger battery... but, why bother? it will ruin S8+ aesthetics.. and S8+ has more than enough battery life for one day of heavy use (all people charge their phone every night anyway)

I don't charge my phone every night, I don't like charging it while I sleep.

Sony might make an XZ Ultra soon. It will be 6" bezeless but atleast 4000mAh.

Daaaaamn, that's an impressive battery capacity. And with the modest specs and screen resolution, I imagine that the thing might be able to last 3, maybe even 4 days on a single charge. It's too bad the Moto G5 Plus doesn't have that battery capacity.... actually, it's a shame all phones don't have that battery capacity.

Well most people are opting for very high processor speed, more than enough memory capacity, gimmicky features, close to perfect camera quality to show off in Instagram and popular brand. It's funny that most people are pretty much proud of having the bragging rights when they are actually so backward in practical life. 2015 has changed the way i use my smartphones. No more carrying bulky powerbanks while claiming how slim is my phone, no more pathetically begging for chargers in friend's or relative's house during odd times, no more desperately installing dumb apps or disabling some features to save battery. It all started with my Lenovo vibe p1 then Lenovo p2. I can't still understand why would someone still buy Moto nowadays when they know that Lenovo will not allow them to be better than their phone.

funny thing probably moto g5 plus will have better battery life than those power hungry mediatek soc. i cant figure out why OEM's use 5000mah with soc like that, 3000/4000mah sd625 or mediatek p20 phone is better than 28nm 5000mah phone.

Hmm, I always thought that Mediatek produced less taxing chipsets, I just always assumed that battery life would have been much better.

everyone carrying one or two powerbanks everyday with capacity of 5000mah-30000mah. do they feel worry about explode? No at all!. cos the one who made the battery for power banks are never make capacity as much as they advertised. so do that moto e4. 5000mah? not at all. i guess it is a real 4000mah in a bulky size.

Why the hell have all of Lenovo's Moto phones become 5.5" midrangers. What happened to the 4" Moto E? I love 5.5" phones but there has to be some differentiation...

"I love 5.5" phones but there has to be some differentiation..." Only if the differentiation will bring in sales, not just differentiating for differentiation sake. And as per the stats, 4-inch smartphones no longer belong to the midrange segment, but low-end segment, as most Android users prefer big phones. Everything as from the midrange segment is phablet these days, with 5.5 inches being the sweet spot.

The back covers comes off my Moto G 4G and my Moto G4 Plus, but the batteries aren't user replaceable. Just sayin...
