Motorola Moto G Plus is one of the mid-budget smartphones that is expected to be received well in the market. The device has already been launched in India along with the lower variant but the Lenovo-owned company is yet to reveal when it will be made available in other markets, including Canada.

The Moto G4 Plus comes in two models, one with a 16GB internal storage and 2GB RAM priced at Rs. 13,499, and the other with a 32GB internal memory and 3GB RAM model with a price tag of Rs. 14,999.

According to a report by MobileSyrup (via GSMArena), the Moto G4 Plus will be released in Canada this summer, and sold by carriers such as Bell, Virgin, Koodo, Telus, Rogers, Wind Mobile and Sasktel. The report went on say, citing a hint provided by the Motorola spokesperson, that the device will cost approximately $400 in Canada.

The Moto G4 Plus is a feature-rich smartphone sporting a 5.5-inch display with 1,080x1,920 pixels (401 ppi pixel density), powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It also has a 32GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card), a 3GB RAM, and a 3,000mAh battery with Turbo charger feature that enables the phone to run for six hours with just 15 minutes of charging.

The device has a superb camera, perhaps the best for a device in its price category. It mounts a 16MP camera with OmniVision Pure Cel Plus sensor, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and dual-LED flash, and a 5MP camera with wide-angle lens. According to DxOMark, which is known for camera reviews, the Moto G4 Plus' still photo score is 85 compared to 84 points for Apple iPhone 6s Plus' camera. The website is all praise for the autofocus, noise reduction, colour and white balance features seen in the device.
