Lenovo subsidiary Motorola has today announced two affordable smartphones — the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus. These entry-level phones are expanding the budget offering from the company. If you are looking for a metal-body, cheap smartphone, both phones seem to be a good pick.

The Moto E4 is the lower-end model of the pair. The device features a 5-inch HD (720p) display, a quad-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC (the international variant sports the MediaTek MT6737) paired with 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of internal storage and a 2,800 mAh removable battery. Along with these specifications, you’re going to get an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. The handset runs the latest version of Android that is officially available – 7.1 Nougat.

The Moto E4 Plus is the slightly larger and powerful variant than its smaller brother. Motorola decided to place a larger 5.5-inch HD (720p) display, quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 427 SoC (again, the international variant has the MediaTek MT6737), 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs or 32GBs of ROM and a huge 5,000 mAh battery. Pairing such a capacious battery with a 720p display should give it a solid battery life. Additionally, the device works with the 10W rapid charger which gives you “hours of battery life in minutes of charging”. There are also improved cameras: a 13-megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front camera with a selfie flash. This device also runs Android 7.1.

Unfortunately, the Moto E4 will not feature a fingerprint sensor, though the Moto E4 Plus will in some non-U.S. markets. Furthermore, NFC support is also missing on the U.S. variant for both models, though it is present in the models sold internationally.

The Moto E4 will be available for $129.99. Motorola announced that the smaller device in the line-up will also be available as an Amazon Prime Exclusive Phone. The company will share the pricing details for this model at a later date. On the other hand, the Moto E4 Plus will cost $50 more and will start at $179.99.
