The Moto G4 family unlocks the power of the Snapdragon modem

There’s a lot to like about the new Motorola Moto G4 family. One feature in particular comes to mind: The Moto G4, G4 Plus, and G4 Play use a Qualcomm Snapdragon LTE modem, and Snapdragon modems allow OEMs to design devices that can be carrier-friendly and universally unlocked. Simply swap SIM cards in any fourth-generation Moto G and the Snapdragon modem supports your connection to the things you care about, regardless of which U.S. network you choose—with superior power efficiency and ultra-fast connectivity.

And that’s just one of the great things about the new Moto G4 family.

Motorola Moto G<sup>4</sup>

The Moto G4 and G4 Plus are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 while the slightly smaller (about a third of an inch shorter and 0.64 ounces lighter) Moto G4 Play features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with a 4G LTE Global Mode modem. Snapdragon processors support advanced capabilities, such as high-end graphics, while optimizing performance, providing blazing-fast Internet speeds, and maximizing battery life.

Thanks to enhanced auto-focus features, you can expect super sharp images with the Moto G4 Plus’s 16MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera. The Moto G4 has the same front camera but a 13MP camera, which can be launched with two twists of the wrist. Both tout sharp 5.5-inch full HD displays.

Motorola Moto G<sup>4</sup> Play

The Moto G4 Play features a clutter-free interface for those who want the Pure Android experience. An 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera capture stunning photos on a 5-inch, 720-pixel HD display.

All three phones come with 16GB of storage (the Moto G4 and G4 Plus can be expanded) and are water-repellent for the clumsiest of hands.

As the gateway between your phone and your world, the modem inside your smartphone matters. Stay connected without being tied down, with an unlocked phone that’s powered by a Snapdragon modem.

The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are available today at multiple online retailers. The Moto G4 Play is expected to be available later this summer.
