Moto G (4th gen) prototype spilled in hands-on video, missing major feature

Rumors of a “Moto G4” and “Moto G4 Plus” have been picking up steam recently, with leaked photos and renders making the rounds online. Now we’re getting what may be our best look yet at the device with an unofficial hands-on video from YouTuber “bare leaked tingz.”

The phone pictured in the video looks almost identical to recent Moto G leaks with one key difference. The rumored physical home button with an embedded fingerprint scanner is gone. Instead, it’s just empty bezel below the display. It’s possible Motorola and Lenovo could be saving the biometric scanner for the alleged Plus model, which would explain why it’s missing in action here.

The rest of the device seems to match up with what we’ve seen already. It sports a pretty big, rumored to measure 5.5-inch across. It also packs a redesigned camera in back, though we still don’t know what kind of lens the new phone will offer.

This leaked prototype looks pretty polished, and considering how quickly the leaks have been coming in, an unveiling could be right around the corner. For now, you can take a closer look in the gallery below.
