Prototype fourth generation Motorola Moto G discovered on video?

Prototype fourth generation Motorola Moto G discovered on video?
Just the other day, we showed you some photos of what is allegedly the fourth generation Motorola Moto G known as the Moto G4. The phone carries what appears to be a fingerprint scanner on the front of the device. On back, there is the famous Motorola bat-wings logo, a camera, LED flash and other sensors.

Today, a video of the device was discovered on YouTube. The listing was made last week and the title of the video indicates that the model shown is a prototype. The unit starring the clip lacks the odd-looking front-facing button seen in the previous photo leak of the phone. That could be due to the fact that the video is showing a prototype.

Another possibility is that the previous leak shows off the Moto G4 Plus, and the YouTube video reveals the Moto G4. It could be entirely possible for a premium version of the phone to offer a fingerprint sensor while the regular version doesn't.

Now that we have seen several leaks, the next thing to be on the look out for would be the FCC confirmation of the model. If you believe that where there's smoke there's fire, then we shouldn't be terribly far from the unveiling of the next generation Motorola Moto G.

Technically that does exist, though Apple calls it something else.

its called Retina flash. But not only Apple has it. Even my LG G Flex 2 has it. It just max up brightness of display,pretty useful sometimes

Oppo had it too before Apple also, and there was an app like that on the App store

Nothing new here, once again actual device looks better than early leaks. More interested in Moto X and its design.

This looks pretty hot for a mid-range phone. I'm glad to see the stock UI as well. I just hope they put in a decent chipset-resolution-battery ratio and have good audio through and through...

This ties up with older leaks as well, so we can assume that the other is the Moto X.

Can you put a sim card for cellphone service in a macbook?

You can't put that in most of the smart watches, or tablets (WiFi variants), or cases or a lot of things reviewed here. You get stupid articles all the time with no relevance and toy don't get article on this.

No article for the Sony Xperia X Premium and its HDR display w/ 60 times the colors of current displays, max of 1000-1300 nit brightness, and a 2000:1 contrast ratio? You guys here at PA are sleeping...

I can bet most of these things you're telling are false. It must be a rumour. No such device exists, new macbook does.

It doesn't look as bad as the first leaked picture. Yet...something about Lenovo owning Motorola now is not giving me much push to buy a new Moto series phone. I feel that the Moto X Pure will be my last Motorola phone for a a while. 3 generations did me good though.

Looks like Motorola hired some LG designers for this one.

Dear PA please fix the link. it says "video is private". If priced reasonably it will be my next phone. My moto g 2014 is longing for an upgrade.

they need to do 2 things about that design: 1. move those mic holes to less obvious place 2. bring back stereo speaker (and place FPscanner under Motorola logo, I know its already possible)
