The Moto G4 Plus Comes With A Hidden LED Light And No One Knows What It's For


The Moto G4 Plus' unveil showcased the specs of the device, but a small detail remained unmentioned, namely the small LED light on the front of the handset.

The tiny, hidden LED light sits next to the right of the home button and lights up briefly as a microUSB is plugged into the smartphone. So far, this is all it does so there is no wonder the LED light did not sprout up in any of the news conferences.

It should be noted that the Moto G4 Plus is not the first Motorola handset that holsters "surprise" LED lights. The Motorola Nexus 6 and Moto G (third generation) also packed the spec.

As a reminder, the Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 are the first Moto phones that come with fingerprint scanners embedded into the home button.

Each of the two devices comes with a 5.5-inch FHD screen able to portrait resolutions of 1,920 x 1,080p. For math majors, that's 401 pixels-per-inch. For processing power, the Moto G4 Plus relies on a Snapdragon 617 eight-core CPU. Four of the cores are running at 1.5 GHz, while the other four are clocked at 1.2 GHz.

Two variants are available for the G4 Plus. The first packs a 2 GB of RAM/16 GB of storage combo, while the second features 3 GB of RAM/32 GB of storage. Both devices are equipped with microSD expansion support of up to 128 GB.

The visuals work via an Adreno 405 GPU.

The Moto G4 Plus has a camera combo featuring a 16-megapixel main snapper and a 5-megapixel selfie camera that works for video chatting, as well.

The device keeps its juices flowing via a powerful battery of 3,000 mAh, which features Turbo Charge and is non-removable.

Connectivity-wise, the Moto G4 Plus comes with Bluetooth v4.1, WiFi, GPS, a microUSB v2.0 port and an FM radio. Sadly, there is no NFC support.

The smartphone comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow pre-installed alongside a few Moto apps.

Two classy color options are available, White and Black.

The phone is priced at slightly over $200, and was recently released in India, where the Moto G4 is likely to follow soon. Both smartphones will land in the UK in June, and other market launches are expected after that.
