It was revealed some months back that the Lenovo-owned Motorola was planning to unveil nine new handsets by the end of 2017. So it came as no surprise when the company started hosting launch events at regular intervals. In June for instance, the company launched the #Moto E4 and #Moto E4 Plus. Both of these handsets are entry level smartphones from the company which looks to offer the lowest price possible to customers without relinquishing too much of its specs.

At launch the Moto E4 was sold unlocked as well as through carriers such as Verizon and MetroPCS. However, starting July 21, the handset will now be available through Sprint and Boost Mobile as well.

The price will also differ depending on where the handset is being purchased from.

Sprint and Boost Mobile locked version of the phone

The handsets locked on Boost Mobile’s and #Sprint’s network will be costlier than its counterpart available through Verizon and MetroPCS. However, the new carriers will still be selling it at a lower cost than what the unlocked variant goes for. According to the carriers, Boost Mobile will offer the Moto E4 handset at a price of $79.99 plus taxes.

In case of Sprint people can avail the device through a monthly payment of $6.05 per month for 18 months. Sprint is also offering a limited period offer where Sprint customers can lease any new smartphone and get up to 10 free leases for the Moto E4. However, this offer will expire on September 14 and customers will need at least one new line to take advantage of this offer.
