With the launch of the new Lenovo branded Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, comes the third member of the family; the Moto G4 Play. The device quietly appeared on its official site alongside its siblings and is pretty much their slightly smaller little brother.
Positioned as the entry-level model of the series, the Moto G4 Play is not only smaller in size than its siblings, but also features a totally different set of specs under the hood.
For starters, the Moto G4 Play is home to a 5-inch 720p screen, with a Snapdragon 410 mated to 2GB RAM running the show. You also get 16GB internal storage that’s expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
As for the camera, you’ll be getting an 8MP rear snapper (as opposed to the G4’s 13MP shooter) along with a 5MP front shooter. Both cameras have f/2.2 wide angle lenses. You do get a relatively large battery however, clocking in at 2,800mAh, we forsee this phone will be pretty good in the battery life department.
You also get Android 6.0.1 out of the box, which should be pretty clutter free.
The official pricing hasn’t yet been revealed, but the release date is set for mid-Summer 2016, so we should be seeing it pretty soon.
