Tech News, 07 Sep 2016, 06:15am GMT


Today, Motorola start selling an additional member of its Moto G4 family: the Moto G4 Play in India. A refreshed third-generation Moto G (2015), it's a lower-cost option to the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.


The Moto G4 Play shares many components with the replacement of Moto G 3rd Gen. It has a Snapdragon 410 SoC that comes with four ARM Cortex-A53 CPUs running at up to 1.2 GHz and an Adreno 306 GPU. There's also 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of eMMC NAND storage and upto 128GB microSD card support.


Screen size reduce to 5" 720p HD panel with 294ppi. All of the Moto G4s have a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture, but the rear cameras are all different. The Moto G4 Play comes with a modest 8MP camera with contrast autofocus. There’s no PDAF/laser AF, OIS, or dual-tone LED flash, but it does have automatic HDR.


Connectivity is also similar to the old Moto G, with support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi only on the 2.4GHz band. The more expensive Moto G4s also work on the 5GHz band. The Moto G4 Play has Bluetooth 4.1 LE but, like the other G4s, no NFC. All new Moto G4s have an integrated Qualcomm Category 4 LTE modem and use MicroSIM cards. The Moto G4 Play gets a larger 2800 mAh non removable battery and should give it decent battery life.



Styling is similar but not identical to the other Moto G4s. It still has a removable plastic back cover for accessing the microSD and SIM slots. Unlike the G4s and previous Moto Gs, which offer several color and style options via Moto Maker, the Moto G4 Play only comes in black or white, at least initially. One feature you will not find on the front of either the G4 Play or G4 is a fingerprint sensor.


Moto G4 Play is the first cheapest Moto G ever, which lunch at Rs. 8999 in India. As a reputed company, Motorola never sold their Moto handset via flash sells. Moto G4 Play already available from midnight exclusively on Amazon India.
