Motorola has recently introduced three new Moto G variants -- the Moto G, the Moto G Plus, and the Moto G Play -- essentially providing a trio of options for the fourth generation iteration of its budget friendly and quite popular smartphone offering.
The Moto G comes with a rather impressive 5.5 inch full HD display screen, with a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels and a density of 401 pixels per inch. This vivid screen is complemented with a 13 megapixel camera (f/2.0 aperture) on the rear side, with features such as color balancing dual LED flash, 4X digital zoom, and quick capture, among many others. On the front side, the smartphone comes with a 5 megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture), with display flash and wide angle lens.
Inside its slim frame, the Moto G boasts a 1.5 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 eight core chip set with 550 MegaHertz Adreno 405 graphics processing unit (GPU). This processor is supported with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), as well as 16 gigabytes or 32 gigabytes of onboard memory, plus support for micro SD card of up to 128 gigabytes. The device possesses a 3,000 mAh battery and is powered by Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Based on its name, one would think the Moto G Plus is the bigger sibling. But the device actually shares the same 5.5 inch full HD display screen as the Moto G. What the handset has, however, is a 16 megapixel camera on the rear side, replete with laser focus as well as phase detect auto focus (PDAF) features. Like the Moto G, the Moto G Plus also has a 5 megapixel camera on the front side. With regards to hardware specifications, the Moto G Plus basically has the same components and features as the Moto G, with the differences lying in terms of the RAM (the Moto G Plus sports a 4 gigabyte RAM variant).
As for the Moto G Play, it is sort of the most basic version of the Moto G lineup of smartphones. It comes with a 5 inch display screen with 720 pixel resolution, flanked by an 8 megapixel camera on the rear side (f/2.2 aperture, with LED flash and 4X digital zoom, among many others) and a 5 megapixel camera on the front side (f/2.2 aperture).
The Moto G Play is fitted with a 1.2 GigaHertz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 four core chip set, with 450 MegaHertz Adreno 306 GPU, supported with 2 gigabytes of RAM and 16 gigabytes of built in storage, and micro SD card support for up to 128 gigabytes.
The Moto G and the Moto G Plus are already made available in the Brazilian mobile market, with the Moto G Plus also debuting in India. Both devices will arrive in the United Kingdom next month, starting with a price of around $245 and $285, respectively. The Moto G Play will be launched later during this year’s summer season.
