Verizon has started retailing the MOTO E4 in the US. The handset is the junior sibling of the entry-level MOTO E range which was unveiled a week back. Currently, this is the only way to get your hands on the smartphone. The only catch being that to get it for $69.99 you need to sign up with Verizon as your service provider; The good news being that since this is a prepaid offer, you can buy the phone and keep the service for a month before moving back to a carrier of your choice.
The handset rocks a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset in the US market coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage which is expandable via microSD card (up to 128 GB). The front of the MOTO E4 is dominated by the 5.0-inch IPS panel based HD (720 x1280) display. For the cameras, it features an 8-megapixel sensor at the back with a f/2.2 aperture with autofocus and a LED flash while for selfies up front the smartphone has a 5-megapixel sensor with the same f/2.2 aperture, 1.4µm pixel size and dedicated front flash. Powering all this hardware is a removable Li-Ion 2800mAh battery unit. On the OS front, Motorola has provided the phone with Android v.7.1.1, Nougat with a couple of MOTO enhancements.
The MOTO E4 is also fully LTE compliant and features a fingerprint scanner up front which just like the higher end MOTO handsets can be setup for one-handed navigation. It features the same oleophobic coating that is customary on all MOTO handsets as well. With all these features, this makes the MOTO E4 a steal for anyone especially considering that it is currently Verizon’s cheapest devices on offer and the only one running on Android Nougat.
Currently, Verizon is only selling the black version of the MOTO E4 and we should the unlocked variants show up later this summer in the rest of the colour options starting from $129.99 in the US market or your regional equivalent.
