The budget Moto G family is growing in size to accommodate one more 5-inch smartphone with a Snapdragon 410 SoC in a water-resistant chassis.

Lenovo subsidiary Motorola has announced the availability and pricing of its latest affordable 5-inch smartphone known as the Moto G Play. Accordingly, the device carries the following specifications:

  • 5-inch 720p display
  • Quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC
  • Adreno 306 graphics
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 8/16 GB eMMC
  • Dual-SIM
  • 2800 mAh battery
  • 8 MP rear w/ LED Flash + 5 MP front cameras
  • 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 LE
  • front-facing speaker and dual microphone
  • Android 6.0.1
  • 144.4 x 72 x 9.9 mm
  • 137 g

Perhaps the most notable feature is its water-resistant design, which is uncommon for a smartphone in its price range.

The Moto G Play will be out later this month across parts of Europe for 170 Euros. Existing Moto G devices include the Moto G4 and Moto G Plus. Those who are looking for something more feature-heavy and powerful can consider the recently released Moto Z or the Moto Z Play. The previous flagship Moto X series has been effectively succeeded by the Moto Z series.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
