Lenovo's beefed-up version of the Moto E4, the Moto E4 Plus, will be available on Verizon starting August 3rd, but it's also coming unlocked simultaneously to Best Buy, Amazon, and a couple other online retailers. Then, on August 11th, it will hit Sprint and Ting, then finally Republic Wireless on August 14th. The unlocked price is $179.99.
The Plus is following in the footsteps of its little $129.99 sibling, the E4, offering compatibility with all the major (and non-major, by extension) carriers in the US. The Plus bumps the display size from 5 inches to 5.5 inches, and nearly doubles the battery capacity — 5,000mAh instead of the 2,800mAh that’s offered by the E4.
The E4 Plus will also be available as an Amazon Prime Exclusive Phone, where you can look at ads on your lock screen in exchange for a nice discount on the price: the E4 is $99 with ads, and the E4 Plus should get a similar or greater discount.
In addition to that huge battery, the phone comes with a 13-megapixel camera, Android 7.1, a sad 2GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 427. (The version released in India seems to have more RAM and a different processor.) Also, there are only 1280 x 720 pixels to stretch across that 5.5-inch screen. This phone is only aspirational in battery size, but that might be enough for some people.
