Description

The Moto G4 Plus is the most capable smartphone in the G series. On the outside it looks a lot like the Moto G4, and the same SoC delivers processing power. At the back, however, a better camera snaps 16MP photos with fast focusing speed. And below the screen, a fingerprint scanner makes unlocking the phone convenient. As the G4, The Moto G4 Plus can be customized via Moto Maker in select markets. A near-stock Android 6.0 build help with keeping things running smoothly.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
