Moto G4 Plus coming to Canada to replace the Moto X Play

9

Lenovo's most powerful Moto G variant, the Moto G4 Plus, is coming to Canada in early summer — likely the first or second week of June — to replace the well-received Moto X Play.

The Moto G4 Plus, which features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 16MP rear camera, and a 3,000mAh battery, shares much in common with the Moto X Play unveiled last summer, but in a brand that continues to be more accessible to the average consumer. Of course, there are some advantages to the Moto G4 Plus: a front-facing fingerprint sensor, and double the storage, over the Moto X Play. One compromise: a smaller battery over the Play's 3,630mAh cell.

Indeed, in Canada the Moto G Plus will sell for around $400 outright, almost identical to the Moto X Play. Like its X Play counterpart, it will be sold unlocked through various retailers, in addition to being subsidized by carriers, likely starting at between $0 and $50 on contract. The Moto G4 Plus will be offered at:

  • Rogers
  • Virgin Mobile
  • Telus
  • Koodo
  • Wind Mobile
  • SaskTel

The Moto G4 Plus's cheaper counterpart, the Moto G Play, will be also be sold later this summer at a number of Canadian carriers. That device, which has considerably less powerful hardware and a smaller 5-inch display, will retail for between $150 to $200 outright.
