Lenovo has announced the launch of Moto G4 Play in India. The lowly priced phone was unveiled earlier this year.

Moto G4 Play | Features

It will be powered by the trustworthy Snapdragon 410 SoC clocked at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 306 GPU at 450 MHz. Primary camera will have an 8 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and LED. Front facing camera is a 5 MP one with no LED flash, but the soft screen-flash feature is present. Rear camera has Auto HDR and burst mode, and can shoot up to 1080p videos at 30 fps.

Sporting a 5 inch display, it will have a 1280×720 resolution resulting in a pixel density of 294. [Also Read : How to calculate pixel density?] It also has water-repellent nano-coating. The phone will be available with 16 GB in-built storage, expanded via microSD up to 128 GB. USB On-The-Go will also be available.

Wireless capabilities include the usual set of features – WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and FM Radio. And for eager Indian reader – YES it will be having VoLTE support! Gyroscope sensor is missing, which means you won’t be able to user the phone with VR headsets. It will be coming with 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. Powering all these will be a 2,800 mAh non-user-removable battery. In addition to this, it also has fast charging capability. A high power 10 W charger is included in the box, which can give 5 hours of usage with 15 minutes charge. That’s too good to be true, but the inclusion of fast charger is a good thing nonetheless.

The features are almost same as Moto G2, with a few minor improvements. G4 Play has more RAM (2 GB v/s 1 GB), a higher megapixel selfie camera and fast-charging. The primary camera is 8 MP, not even 13 MP like last year’s G3. It is also missing a finger-print sensor.


The budget oriented device will go on sale on Amazon India. Available colours are White and Black. Meanwhile interested users can use the link below to buy the device.
