Moto G4 Play India Launch Details and Specs
Motorola today has launched the new Moto G4 Play, and it is available exclusively on Amazon India at an affordable Rs. 8,999.
Motorola shared some days back on Twitter that they will launch a new smartphone soon in the Indian market and hinted about the G4 Play.
Notably, the first sale for the smartphone will be at 10:00 pm Indian time on 6th September 2016.
Detailed Specifications and Features
Moto G4 Play comes with same design as the Moto G4 or the Moto G4 Plus. Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and comes with Adreno 405 GPU clocked at 450 Mhz.
Also, there is 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage expandable up to 128 GB using a micro-sd card. Notably, there is no fingerprint scanner on the Moto G4 Play.
Further, it comes with the latest Android Marshmallow 6.0 and offers blissful near stock android experience.
Design and Display
The Moto G4 Play comes with the 5-inch display. However, it does not have 2.5D curve glass. The display has HD (1280*720) pixels resolution and offers 293 PPI.
The smartphone has a bland design similar to its more expensive siblings.
The plain design is not a head turner but is functionally competent and look robust with metallic edges and poly-plastic back cover. The rear cover has a matte finish, looks decent, but not a premium finish.
The Moto G4 Play’s key highlight would be longer battery life with its 2800 mAH battery capacity which is decent to work all day. The battery is not enormously large to make the mobile too bulky or too uncomfortable to use.
Additionally, it comes with fast charging support another positive to have in the modern smartphone.
G4 Play Offers Android Marshmallow 6.0 and VOLTE support
The smartphone has a thickness of 8.99 mm to 9.99 mm on the thinnest and thickest edge; it weighs 137 grams which is acceptable for a 5.0-inch display smartphone.
Another added advantage is the nano coating which protects the Moto G4 Play from splashes and water. (It is not waterproof fully, but has water resistance).
Camera and other Features
The Moto G4 Play comes with an 8 Megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture lens and can record full HD videos. There is a 5 Megapixel front camera which can click clear selfies.
The Motorola Moto G4 Play comes with 4G LTE/ VOLTE support as well as conventional 3G / 2G and WIFI connectivity options to use high-speed data.
Considering the pricing, it is a good offering and better than many other devices in this range. Motorola may not have the best of specs, but the quality control and user experience on the Moto smartphones still make me a fan of Moto.
I would have liked a better processor from Motorola on the new G4 Play, but nevertheless, we can’t get everything on a tight budget.
