Motorola is teasing the upcoming 4th-gen Motorola Moto G on its Indian Twitter account
As Motorola loyalists probably know by now, the company is expected to unveil the fourth-generation Motorola Moto G handset on May 17 at a press conference in India

With the event right around the corner, Motorola has recently turned to its Indian Twitter account to tease the upcoming Moto G, basically confirming that an updated handset in the entry-level smartphone series is about to be introduced.

Although it's nice to be reassured that the 2016 Motorola Moto G will be unveiled in about a couple of weeks from now, Motorola's teasers do not reveal any specific details about the smartphone. The Lenovo-owned company teases aspects such as a better camera, a longer battery life, improved device security, as well as a faster chipset.

According to leaks and rumors, the fourth-generation Motorola Moto G will feature hardware specs such as a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, an octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a fingerprint reader, and a 13MP primary camera. Furthermore, rumors have also suggested that the 4th-gen Moto G will launch alongside the Moto G4 Plus, a beefed up version that's expected to come with a 16MP primary camera.

What do you guys think about the upcoming 4th-gen Motorola Moto G? Is anyone secretly hoping for Motorola not to adopt the phablet form factor with the 2016 iteration in the company's affordable smartphone series?

They already have, you could always get the Moto E as another alternative. I hope it is as compact as the MXPE.

Yes, I'm hoping, not secretly, for Motorola not to adopt the phablet form factor... I like Apple and Sony's move towards smaller form factor with all the muscle of a flag ship (Less than 5")... To me, 4.7" to 5.2" Screen Size is ideal for a day to day smartphone with moderate internet surfing... Ideally with around 3,000mAh battery...

I don't know man. People say that larger phones are more cumbersome to use but it's surprising how quickly one gets used to it. I replaced my S5 with a 6s Plus a few months ago and I found even with bigger bezels that the change in handling or usage is only an issue when one first gets the phone. After that, they get used to it and the change becomes imperceptible.

Snapdragon 625 or bust on the G4 Plus

I think G4 Plus would have those specs.. Atleast 5.5 inch screen. G4 should retain 5 inch..

16MP of expandable memory is a lot!

I don't mind if they go for a 2 size option. I'm used to the size of my iPhone 6 now, but, given how worried I am about bending it, I'm not that fond of keeping it in my pocket, even when just walking around.. Having owned a Moto G in the past and having been eyeing up the 3rd Generation model for a while now, with a view to switching back to Android, I'm quite excited about the launch of the next generation. There's no sign, or even mention of it on Motorola's UK website, although I do notice that prices seem to be dropping here. Hopefully, there's not going to be too much of wait for it and hopefully the Screen Protector manufacturers are on the ball, because I'd hate to have to wait even longer, for them to catch up! :O)
