The Motorola Moto G Play (2021) is apparently confirmed through new leaks
It seems Motorola is working on a new generation for its economical Moto G Play series. Unlike most of its predecessors, however, it appears not to have a generational indicator in its name. Instead, it is simply called the G Play (2021). This new rumor has been backed up by some potentially convincing leaks.
The first of these comes from Geekbench 5, which shows that a device by this name is powered by the Snapdragon 460, also favored by the non-5G OPPO A53 and Realme C17 refresh. It also appears to have 3GB of RAM and run on Android 10.
Therefore, these specs, while possibly underwhelming, might make a well-priced smartphone in the new year. The same device with matching attributes has also recently popped up on the Google Play Console. They include its product name, as well as its code-name (guamna).
Then again, should this be the case, there are indications that this same device might be re-badged as a Moto E-series device instead in some markets. Google's official database also specifies that this "Moto G Play 2021" will have a waterdrop-notched display of an HD resolution.
However, despite all these apparent details, the budget device in question still lacks a launch date or price at present.
