Hello, Moto. We're listening.

It's too soon to say if the Moto E4 Plus' 5,000mAh battery will take us two full days on a single charge -- not without testing it first -- but the newly announced phone from Motorola certainly has our attention.

Larger than the E4, also announced Monday, and brawnier in the specs department, this update to the Moto E line brings you Android for cheap. To the tune of $180 or £159 (that converts to about AU$270).

While we don't know exactly when the Moto E4 Plus will go on sale (this could vary by region), we do know that it comes with Android 7.1 Nougat -- that's the latest software since Android O isn't out yet -- and Motorola's nifty trick that turns the fingerprint reader into a home button you can also use to navigate.

Check out the complete specs below.
