Moto G4 gets tested on Geekbench


The Moto G4 is scheduled for an unveiling alongside a Moto G4 Plus to happen on May 17. Today, the handset was tested on Geekbench, revealing some key specifications.

According to the benchmark results, the Moto G4 will sport a 5.5-inch screen with a Full HD resolution. It’ll be powered by a Snapdragon 617 made by Qualcomm backed with 3GB of RAM. It’ll have both a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats. If these specs are true, they’ll provide a nice boost to what was inside last year’s Moto G. We’re expecting the Moto G4 to have 16GB of internal storage space included and run Google’s latest Android 6.0.1 software.

The Moto G4 Plus will offer something more than that included on the Moto G4. Rumors and leaks point towards the addition of a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a higher MP count for the rear-facing camera, and possibly more RAM. This should provide a better benchmark score than that in which the Moto G4 scored on this examination, which was 719 on the single-core test and 3076 on the multi-core test. The remaining details can be seen on the Geekbench listing linked down below.
