2016 Moto G surfaces in leak, front home button included

Good news: the odd Motorola smartphone leaked a while back might not be a Moto X at all but a next gen Moto G instead. Bad news: that means it will have a physical home button. At least that's the implication of this latest batch of leaked photos that show what is allegedly the Moto G4 in all its prototype glory.
