The American handset maker, Motorola has now made it quite clear that it is quite serious about the budget segment and will be launching an affordable Plus variant of its best selling handsets. Starting from the Moto X Play, now the brand has announced a Play edition of its newest Moto G4 Plus as well. This device would be the more affordable variant of the much loved Moto G4 Plus and is soon to land in the country. According to the Internet, the handset will land on the Indian shores on September 6. Here is a brief overview of why or why should not you opt for the device.
Quick Charging: The handset comes with a decent battery, which might leave users frusturated if used heavily. However, Motorola has been considerate enough to equip the device with Quick Charging to facilitate faster charging.
Water-repellent: One of the highlights of Moto G Devices is that they are water-repellent to a large extent. The Moto G4 Play would come with the same nano coating on its body that would add to the water-repellent capacity of the handset.
Display Flash: Motorola has made sure that the handset comes with a decent 5 Megapixels camera on the front for selfie lovers. The brand also made up for the lack of front flash with a display flash that should come in handy during low light selfie session.
No Fingerprint Scanner: Since this handset is an affordable variant of the Moto G4 Plus, Motorola took some liberty to cut down on its features. One of the feature that Motorola decided to get rid of was the fingerprint scanner, which was a big mistake when most smartphones in this price come with fingerprint scanner.
