The much anticipated fourth generation Moto G series will reportedly be unveiled in June, a report from China said.

Lenovo's CEO Yang Yuanqing, during the launch of the ZUK Z2 Pro smartphone, revealed that the company will unveil the new Moto phone, understood to be the Moto G (4th gen) series, on June 9, GizChina reported.

Yuanqing added that the new product will be nothing less than "exciting," but refrained from revealing the features and how many Moto G variants Lenovo plans to unveil in June. Numerous credible reports have indicated that the fourth generation mid-range phone will come in two models -- Moto G (4th gen) aka G4 and Moto G Plus aka G4 Plus.

Expected features of the fourth generation Moto G series:

From what we have gathered so far, Moto G Plus will be the top-end device among the two models. It is said to come with 5.5-inch display, 16GB inbuilt storage, a 16MP camera on the back and is expected to set you back by €280 (around $316/Rs.21,064).

On the other hand, Moto G (4th gen) is reported to feature 5.5-inch display, 16GB inbuilt storage, a 13MP camera on the back and cost €240 (around $271/Rs.18,045). Both the new Moto G series are said to be made available in black and white models.

Just a few days ago, snow-hued Moto G Plus image surfaced online. The company has made some cosmetic changes to the phone.

Moto G Plus will come with a finger-print sensor on the home button and on the back. The metal strip, which featured camera module and the iconic batwing logo in the 2015 model, has been split.

The new phone will have just the camera and dual-tone LED flash in the metal strip, whereas the logo will be placed separately below it.

For the uninitiated, the upcoming fourth-generation Moto G including the Moto X and the Moto E (3rd gen) series will be the first non-Motorola branded phones. Instead, they will come with a "Moto by Lenovo" tag.
