Motorola teases new phone on Twitter; handset features better security, browser and battery
posted by Alan F. / May 02, 2016, 12:12 PM
With the hashtag #Missing, Motorola is pretending to send out posters of missing people. One example is 20-year old Kevin who was about to propose to his girlfriend by text when his battery died. The tweet says "#MISSING since he was about to propose a girl he likes. With better battery, no more missing out. Coming soon!"
Other features teased by Motorola include improved security and a better camera. The Moto G4 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD). An octa-core CPU will be under the hood, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A 13MP camera will adorn the back of the phone. The Moto G4 Plus is expected to carry a fingerprint scanner in the home button, and a 16MP rear-facing camera.
We should know all on May 17th. In the meantime, check out the slideshow to see the teasers.

Notice the height of the people; 5'5", 5'7", and 5'3". hints to the screen sizes maybe? 3 phones one with 5.5" one with 5.7" and one with 5.3" display?

Annie could get it. G4? I'm assuming this is a 4th gen Moto G? I don't think I'd call it that due to the similarities to the LG device.

There have been similar names in the past. HTC had a G2 long before LG released their G2. Using a single letter and number for a model designation, it won't take long and they're going to start to double up.

Why every other f-ing phone is a monstrous 5.5 Incher is beyond me... Those behemoths tend to possess the least SOT... I'm more than happy with my 4" Lumia 430... Okay, these big baboons make sense for a POWER USER but what about regular users like me who don't install 200+ Apps on their phones? Who actually have a life, you know? For a day to day calling, texting, and maybe even 'sexting', a 4 Incher is more than suffice...

So you're presuming that anyone that prefers a larger screen doesn't have a life. Ha, okay. It's fine if you prefer a smaller phone, go for it. But why does that necessitate you deride someone else's preferences? I'm 6"2, well-built and I have big hands. A 4 inch phone would feel like a toy to me, and there are many others like me. And I'm not even sure what screen size has to do with how many apps you use, that's just a weird connection to make.

Current Moto G 4G user - love Motorola but wish they weren't so big! Also one of the apparent few who seek a truly compact, powerful phone. Droid Mini is pretty good but getting old, love Sony but the Z compacts are still not quite small enough... Waiting for project Ara small size?

I am hoping that Motorola releases a 5 inch model, because I want a smaller phone than my Meizu M2 Note. Been thinking of getting the Xiaomi Redmi 3 or Moto G 3rd gen. Last year was the year of 5 inch phones, this year it seems everything is gravitating to 5.5 inch. Many companies seem to have killed their mini series as well as their max series, so phones under 5 inch and over 5.5 inch are disappearing.
