The Moto G8 Plus has already gone official in various markets like Europe, India, etc. & along with that phone, the company also launched Moto G8 Play in Brazil. As the name suggests, it is the cheapest phone in the Moto G8 lineup & successor to the Moto G7 Play, which was a significant upgrade over G6 Play since it had Snapdragon 632 SOC (compared to Snapdragon 430 of G6 Play).
The Moto G8 Play comes with the same design as the G8 Plus & has features like triple rear cameras, a 4,000mAh battery, Helio P70M SOC, etc.
MOTO G8 PLAY – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The G8 Play has the same design as Motorola One Macro that launched in India a couple of weeks earlier. So, there is a plastic build, a triple camera setup on the rear, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, a display with Waterdrop notch & a huge bottom bezel, a USB Type-C port on the bottom & a headphone jack on top.
There is a 6.2-inch MaxVision HD+ display on the front & the device is powered by an octa-core 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio P70M SOC. Now, we don’t know what’s the difference between the Helio P70 & P70M at the moment. There are chances that Motorola made a mistake in mentioning the SOC name on the site since we found no details related to any such version of Helio P70.
There is 2GB RAM & 32GB storage with an option to add a microSD card up to 512GB.
On the rear, there is a triple camera setup that includes a primary 13-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture (1.25 µm), a secondary 8-Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 117-degree FOV (1.12 µm) & a third 2MP depth sensor (1.75 µm). There is an 8 Megapixel front-facing camera. So, the only difference between the Moto G8 Play & Motorola One Macro is that the former has an ultra-wide-angle camera instead of a macro lens that’s there on the latter.
The rest of the specifications are the same, including a 4,000mAh battery with 10W Rapid Charging via USB Type-C port.
MOTO G8 PLAY – PRICING & AVAILABILITY
The G8 Play comes in two colors, namely Onyx Black & Magenta Red. It comes in just one variant i.e., 2GB RAM + 32GB storage & is priced at R$1,099, which translates to around $272. The phone is available in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Perú. It will roll out over the coming months in other countries in Latin America.
