Motorola's soon-to-be-announced Moto G4 just made an appearance on GFXBench ahead of its launch. The smartphone will be powered by an octa-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and more.

Over the last few weeks, Motorola has watched several of its upcoming smartphones leak on the Internet. The company's mid-range Moto G4 Plus was one of the first images to leak and it confirmed what a Lenovo executive said in January, that all 2016 Moto branded smartphones would ship with a fingerprint scanner. Images of the Moto G4 made their way online shortly after, and what appear to be press renders for the handset showed off a white color option.

Motorola also experienced a leak of its next-generation Moto X (2016), when a reliable source revealed the smartphone would be offered with a new metal body.

Motorola is holding a press event on May 17 and it's widely expected to announce the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. One of those smartphones just made an appearance on GFXBench, where it confirmed some of the handset's internals.

According to the results, the Motorola Moto G4 scored a single-core score of 719 and a multi-core score of 3,076 and was running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. An octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor and 3 GB of RAM (which was reportedly reserved for the G4 Plus) are powering the device.

Recent reports suggest the Moto G4 will include a 1,920 x 1,080 5.5-inch full HD display and is believed to pack in a 16-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfie fans and video chat.

While the Moto G4's battery wasn't listed, Motorola is well known for getting as much juice out of its batteries as possible. It's also unclear if U.S. carriers will offer the smartphone on their networks or if it will be sold unlocked.

We'll know the full details on May 17 and will keep you posted on any additional news.
