Motorola is known to launch a number of Moto G phones in one go and something similar is expected from this year’s Moto G8 as well. Days after the renders of the alleged Moti G8 Plus surfaced, we’re getting hands-on renders of the alleged Moto G8 Play – which is expected to be the cheapest in the lot. The renders show off the phone from the back as well as from the front. And because these are hands-on images, the image that shows off the front also reveals some key specs of the phone in question.
Let’s start with the design. In terms of design, there’s not anything new on offer here. The Moto G8 Play looks like a very familiar Moto phone with what appears to be a glossy back – in black – with a physical fingerprint scanner. The back should ideally be made of plastic. The phone’s seen having three rear cameras arranged vertically on one end. On the front, there’s a waterdrop-style notch and a substantial chin.
As per one of the renders, the alleged Moto G8 Play will come with a 6.2-inch HD+ or 720p+ display and a 2GHz octa-core processor under the hood. The individual resolution of the three back cameras isn’t known but one of them will be a ultrawide-angle camera with a 117-degree field-of-view. On the front, the phone will come with an 8MP camera. The phone will be backed by a 4,000mAh battery with rapid/fast charging support.
Rumoured specs of the heftier Moto G8 Plus meanwhile include a 6.3-inch 1080p+ IPS LCD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor under the hood. The phone will reportedly come with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB storage which would be expandable. The phone will be backed by a sizeable 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support. It will areportedlylso come with a triple camera setup on the rear consisting of a 48MP min camera, a 16MP ultrawide ‘Action’ cam like the one in the Moto One Action, and another 5MP depth sensor for portrait photography. On the front, the phone will reportedly come with a 25MP camera.
The Moto G8 Plus and Moto G8 Play are expected to be launched at a keynote event in Brazil on October 24.
