Moto G4 Play with 5-inch 720p display is coming to India on Sep. 6

If you're not a fan of the 5.5-inch form factor of the Moto G4 or the Moto G4 Plus, you're in luck, as Motorola is all set to launch the 5-inch Moto G4 Play in India next week. The phone will make its debut on September 6, and will be sold exclusively on Amazon India.

While the Moto G4 and G4 Plus feature Full HD screens, the Moto G4 Play comes with a 5-inch 720p display. Other specs include a Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, microSD slot, 8MP camera, 5MP front shooter, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (still no love for 5GHz networks), and a 2800mAh battery.

With the Moto G4 retailing for ₹12,499 ($185) (opens in new tab), Motorola will likely position the Moto G4 Play for under ₹10,000, which will see the phone duking it out with the likes of the Redmi Note 3 and the Vibe K5 Plus.

  • So pretty much a 3rd gen Moto G with different design. I like that it is 5 inch and decent battery size. I can't get use to 5.5 inch yet.
  • Yes, bring on more 5 inch phones. I will be interested in the smaller Nexus phone coming soon. Hopefully not crippled....
  • I would love to see more full featured 5 inch phones!
  • Wish it used the SD430 which would make it at least a competition to the similarly priced Redmi 3S Prime. SD410 is not good enough in late 2016. But Moto is gonna sell more since it is well known in India and Xiaomi still aren't interested much in offline retail. It's (Redmi) even out of stock currently lol. Online-only model in India is not very wise for Xiaomi because Oppo are Vivo are eating up its marketshare slowly and I won't be surprised if they even surpassed Xiaomi next year. And that's a shame, because Xiaomi phones are better than the two in terms of specs and software.
