Moto G Play: Lenovo also has a Moto G for lovers of 5-inches

Moto G Play

After the officially launched in India the two new models that were supposed would replace the Moto G line 5 inches. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus have opened a gap of half an inch compared to the previous generation and many wondered what would happen to the faithful followers of the 5-inch models.

The answer to our question has not been slow in coming because Lenovo has made official a new terminal, the Moto G Play that seems clearly the evolution of the Moto E but for now Lenovo has not confirmed that the E will disappear facilitator this new device. What is true is that we have a Moto G or two, we have three new models.

The new Moto G Play

When everything seemed to indicate that this year the Moto G line would move away from the 5-inch, Lenovo has surprised us with a new model that also inherits the name Play already had the Moto X family when it was still in the hands of Motorola. Everything seems to indicate, therefore, that Play will be the equivalent of Lite for Eastern.

Looking at the specifications seem to have, because not only observe the 5-inch screen with HD resolution that we had in the previous generation of Moto G but the processor also repeated. Again we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core 64-bit command, a processor that already has a whopping two and a half years old and that leaves this new Moto G Play closer to the low end than ever.

As for memories, we will have a new duo. We can get hold of the 8GB version storage or 16GB version, both with the possibility of being extended through microSD, missing more. In the RAM we are left with a single model, with 2GB of RAM equating this model even more than last year if possible.

The cameras will be 8 megapixel f / 2.2 to back and 5-megapixel f / 2.2 on the front; although both will have flashed back it will use the front LED and the brightness of the screen, the Display Flash. One of the biggest news will be its battery, 2470 mAh for the Moto G3 last year will climb to 2800 mAh. It seems that this Moto G Play, if no one remedy, will best be autonomy of the three models presented.

Honoring the Moto family, now owned by Lenovo, this Moto G Play will have Android 6.0 Marshmallow unchanged, which agree to call Moto Pure, and also adds resistance to water splashes on the list of specifications. It will not be waterproof but is less than nothing.

Moto G Play, price and availability

For now we do not know the price that will come this Moto G Play, although we will update the article as soon as you have available. Logically, it is expected that the Moto G Play establish a new rung on the ladder price of the new line Moto G, the lowest in this case. Thus, in order of power and price we would have: Moto G Play, Moto G4 and G4 Moto Plus.

In terms of availability, for now Lenovo has announced for the US so we will be alert to any announcement about a possible international release. We assume that sooner or later come as did the Moto G and Moto E, but better to wait for official information.
