Motorola unveiled three new smartphones during an event in India on Tuesday, including the Moto G (which we’re calling the Moto G4), the Moto G Play and the Moto G Plus. The devices were the subjects of several leaks, so we had a pretty good idea of what was coming down the pipe.

The Moto G4 and Moto G Plus are almost identical when it comes to specs, which we’ll get to in a moment, with the main differences coming down to the camera and a fingerprint sensor. The Moto G Plus includes a fingerprint reader (the Moto G does not) and a 16MP camera instead of a 13MP shooter on the Moto G.

Other specs included in both phones include a Snapdragon 617 processor, 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB to 4GB of RAM, a 5MP front-facing camera, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options and a 3,000mAh battery, Engadget said. Moto Maker will also be an option.

Motorola also announced the Moto G Play with a 5-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 410 processor, water-resistance, an 8-megapixel camera and, presumably, a lower price to match.

The Moto G4 and Moto G Plus are set to launch in India and Europe next month while the Moto G Play will get a global launch later this summer. There’s no word on a US launch at this time, but perhaps we’ll hear more during Lenovo Tech World in San Francisco next month.
