The Moto E4 and E4 Plus, outed several weeks ago in a leaked Motorola conference photo, have been officially announced. Both devices will retail for under $200 and should be available this month.

Motorola's new budget-tier smartphones have just been announced, and they will be available for purchase this month. The Moto E4 and E4 Plus feature similar specs but do differ in terms of screen size and battery capacity.

First, let's talk about where the two phones are similar. Both the Moto E4 and the E4 Plus use a 720p display resolution. Not very surprising, considering they are meant to be low-priced devices. Both also use a Mediatek MT6737M quad-core processor clocked at 1.25 GHz, a Mali-T720MP2 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM. Storage-wise, there are 16 GB of internal memory available, and that can be expanded up to 128 GB with a micro SD card. Finally, the two handsets run Android Nougat 7.1.1.

Now, how are they different? For starters, the Moto E4 has a 5-inch screen, while the E4 Plus features a larger, 5.5-inch screen. There is also a big difference between their two main cameras: the E4 Plus sports a 13-megapixel lens that can record 1080p video—the regular E4 is limited to 8 megapixels and 720p. Last, but not least, the Moto E4 Plus has a massive 5,000 mAh battery, surely large enough to last quite a while between charges. Of course, the E4 is no slouch; its 2,850 mAh battery should be up to the task, considering the type of hardware it is powering.

According to Motorola, both smartphones will be available starting later this month. The Moto E4 will retail for $129.99, and the Moto E4 Plus will start at $179.99. The Moto E4 will also be available as an Amazon Prime Exclusive Phone; details on that will follow at a later date.
