Motorola could be preparing to launch the Moto G4 Play in India given that the budget Moto G4 variant has recently been sighted at the Indian logistics company website Zauba.com.
As per the handset’s import manifest, at least 14 units bearing the model number XT 1607 has been imported from the US. These are likely to be used for homologation trials. With the Indian telecom network being different from its US counterpart, any company planning to launch a new mobile device has to make sure those are fully compliant with the Indian specifications.
That aside, the other notable aspect that the import docs revealed is each unit of the handset will cost $140 that which comes at a very competitive price of INR 8,999.
That being said, the specs aren’t anything to cry hoarse about either and make a perfect match to its intended pricing. For instance, the device comes with a 5-inch 720p display with a Snapdragon 410 humming on the other side of it. It comes with a 2 GB RAM and a rather paltry 16 GB of ROM.
Fortunately, there is the provision of adding another 256 GB via microSD cards. There is also the other model featuring a 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM though that does not seem to be heading to India at the moment.
Meanwhile, the Moto G4 Play also boasts of an 8-megapixel primary shooter along with a 5-megapixel cam on the front. Powering the device is a 2,800 mAh battery which again leaves some more to expect but can just be enough considering it is a single SIM mobile.
As for its anticipated launch schedule, there is no concrete evidence so far to link it to any particular date. For reference, both the Moto G4 and G4 Plus will go on sale in the US and elsewhere on July 12. The chances are that the budget G4 Play will also stick to that time frame though that’s mere speculation at the moment.
Motorola is yet to make any official comment on the latest development.
