Support Moto G4 Plus?

There are a few Moto G4 models in the list of supported phones. Does one of these work also on the G4 Plus?
I am no expert and have no spare phones if the change to eOS does not work. Can I dare it?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Not for your model, but clearer in complement to the official obscur install documentaion for your model :

Hello @LITTLEc,

Yes, I would dare! Not because the two Moto-G4 variants are like one egg to another, but because both are “internally” largely the same. This means that the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus work with the Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 chipset and differ only in the main camera: Motorola Moto G4: 13 MP, f/2.0, AF vs. Motorola Moto G4 Plus: 16 MP, f/2.0, PDAF, Laser AF. The Micro-A ports of the G4 models are also electrically identical: microUSB 2.0, USB On-The-Go. The visible difference between the G4 and the G4 Plus is the fingerprint sensor on the front.

The /e/ documentation speaks of the Motorola Moto G4 - “athene” and doesn’t name an explicit model, just like LineageOS Motorola Moto G4 (athene).

The maintainer “corlatemanuel” designates the Lenovo Motorola G4 Plus (XT1642) also codenamed “athene” and has built an unofficial LOS build: Motorola Moto G4 / G4 Plus LineageOS 15.1 Oreo 8 ROM →
