Motorola It continues with its plan to seize the mid-range market and this time it is preparing the launch of a cell phone with a price in the aforementioned range, but with high-end specifications: we are talking about the Moto G Play 2023.
The most surprising thing about this smartphone is its price: starting January 12, it will be on sale at Amazon, Best Buy and on Motorola’s website and physical stores. for as little as $170a real madness taking into account its benefits.
According to the report published on the website of Digital Trendsthe highlight in the technical section of this device is its huge modern-looking 6.5-inch screen with nice bezels and a small hole-punch cutout at the top that houses the selfie camera instead of a waterdrop notch.
The resolution has been limited to HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels), which is not surprising for a phone in this price range. However, the manufacturer is adding some pizzazz courtesy of a smooth 90Hz panel.
An amazing battery
Another notable aspect of the Moto G Play 2023 is the size of the battery: 5000 mAh which is claimed to last up to three days. Considering its specs, it’s likely to only last a day, but it’s still fine.
The phone will come with Android 12 and is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G37 chip, along with a modest 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Fortunately, you can expand the storage by inserting a card with up to 512 GB capacity.
The camera hardware is the weak point of the device: you get a single 16-megapixel camera on the back, assisted by a pair of 2MP cameras for depth-sensing and macro photography. Selfie duties fall to a 5MP camera, and overall Motorola ensures users will have positive results.
The device is waterproof thanks to its IP52-certified frame, but you might still want to apply a case and screen protector as it doesn’t have advanced Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
The best news for Moto lovers is that the Moto G Play 2023 retains 3.5mm headphone jack and includes 10-watt charger. Thanks Moto!
