Moto E4 (or C) could offer Nougat at a sub-$100 price, but rumors are conflicting

Moto E4 (or C) could offer Nougat at a sub-$100 price, but rumors are conflicting

Motorola has a new entry-level device, but we can’t quite tell you what it’s called. Moto E4? Moto C? There are competing rumors, but the specs are close enough that we think it’s a single device (perhaps the different names are a regional thing).
We’re looking at something in the very affordable bracket, $50 to $80 or so. That’s a good deal for an Android 7.0 Nougat device, but the specs are very underwhelming: a 5” screen (480 x 854px), quad-core processor (on a MediaTek chipset), 1GB of RAM and a 5MP main camera plus 2MP selfie cam.
The battery is likely 2,300mAh as reported by the FCC, though a Moto E4 Plus version with 4,000mAh in its tank is mentioned by rumors. However, the Brazilian regulatory commission confirms only 2,300mAh. Interestingly, it mentions several RAM options - 1GB, 2GB, 3GB and even 4GB. That can’t be correct, can it? 4GB of RAM on a device with a sub-HD screen?

At any rate, we’re looking at a low cost Motorola with Android Nougat. Whether it’s called the Moto E4 or Moto C doesn’t matter quite that much. We would love to see that big battery, though.

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls

WhatsApp to get PiP video calls
WhatsApp beta version 2.17.265 for Android comes with a new feature, one that is enabled by default for those devices that are running the Android O Developer Preview. The feature would let you minimize the video call window into a smaller window so you can keep your video conversation going while answering another WhatsApp conversation.
We’re not sure if the small window with the video chat is a floating window that can be dragged around, nor do we know if the video conference would continue even after minimizing WhatsApp. If so, this would be one of the first video calling apps to allow this type of multi-tasking on a smartphone platform. Are you an avid WhatsApp user who would love the idea of a pop-out video calling feature?
