Lenovo's new Moto E4 is a mid-priced smartphone that already includes a fingerprint scanner and NFC. For a phone priced at $129, it's not too bad.
But if you're looking to save more money when you buy the Moto E4, Republic Wireless has something for you.
The T-Mobile and Sprint MVNO has announced that they will be launching a Back to School Bundle for only $99. This bundle includes the Moto E4, an Incipio NGP Advanced case ($20 value), and one month of service for free ($20 value).
Other than a fingerprint scanner and NFC, the Moto E4 comes with a 5-inch HD display with 720x1280 resolution. Powering the phone from within is a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, and up to 128GB memory expansion through a microSD card. Camera-wise, the Moto E4 includes an 8-megapixel main camera on the back, 1080p HD video recording, and a 5-megapixel camera in front. The phone also has a 2,800mAh Li-Ion removable battery. Upon release, this splash resistant device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and comes in Black or Gold color options.
If you opt to purchase the phone separately, you would have to pay $129 for it. Adding the case and the one month Republic Wireless service to the bill, you would have to pay $169 for these three things. So if you were already considering getting the Moto E4 and a no-contract plan, you can save up to $70 with Republic Wireless' Back to School Bundle offer. The plan that the MVNO included in this bundle is inclusive of unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of cell data.
The Back to School Bundle promotion runs from July 31 through August 6th. If you're interested in taking up this promotion, you can visit their website for more information. Update Dennis: The Moto E4 does not have NFC.
