    Lenovo has just released the new Moto G4 and G4 Pus. There isn't too much of a difference between these devices. They both feature 5.5" 1080p screens, Octacore Snapdragon 617 processors, 2GB of RAM, and Android 6.0.1. The Plus version includes a slightly better camera and finger print scanner. Both devices are bootloader unlockable which means you will be able to root and Rom them.

    To Bootloader Unlock:
    -First Backup any important information
    -Head to the Motorola Dev Website (Sign In or Register a New Account)
    -Open Settings, Head To About Phone, Tap Build Number 7xs to Enable Developer Options
    -Open Developer Options, Check both Allow OEM Unlock, and Android Debugging
    -Connect your device to your PC (ADB and Fastboot should be installed on your PC)
    -Shift+Right Click within your Fastboot folder and select Open command prompt here
    -In Command Prompt Type "adb reboot bootloader"
    -In Command Prompt Type "fastboot oem get_unlock_data"
    -This will output a code
    -Paste the code as one solid line into the box on Motorola's website "can my device be unlocked?" Then Request the unlock key
    -The Email will be sent to you via email
    -In the command prompt type "fastboot oem unlock (code)"
    -Device will reboot and your bootloader will be unlocked
