Republic Wireless starts selling the Moto E4 Plus for just $199
One and a half months ago, Republic Wireless announced it will start selling Lenovo's budget-friendly Moto E4. Today, the MVNO confirmed it will carry the improved version, the Moto E4 Plus.
Customers will now be able to purchase the Moto E4 Plus at Republic Wireless for just $199, or as low as $12 a month with financing from Affirm. That's almost double the price of the Moto E4, which went on sale at the MVNO for $99, but the price went up to $129 after the promotional offer ended.
But there won't be any promotional offers for the Moto E4 Plus, but the price will most likely go down after a while. In the meantime, who wants a mid-range smartphone running Android 7.1 Nougat, which will probably receive another major OS update this year after Google launches Android O.
Besides the timely updates that Motorola will probably deliver, another reason that you might want to consider buying the Moto E4 Plus is the massive 5,000 mAh battery. The rest of the phone's specs are decent for a mid-range device that costs less than $200: Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, and 5.5-inch HD (720p) display.
Keep in mind that the international version of Moto E4 Plus comes with 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor instead of the Snapdragon 427 CPU inside of the US model. For in-depth details about the smartphone, you can check out our full Moto E4 Plus review.
