The Motorola brand will soon offer its new entry-level smartphone, the Moto G Play in the United States. Let’s hope it finds its way to us, as it promises very good value for money.
The Lenovo company, holder of the license to use the Motorola brand for smartphones, continues its offensive on the mobile phone markets with several rather remarkable models, including the latest edge30 Fusion sporting the color of the year 2022 then that of the year 2023, the Viva Magneta. The company will soon be talked about thanks to the marketing of a new model, the Moto G Play 2023. This mobile will therefore not have the name of Moto G Play 2022 which we had heard about recently but whose technical characteristics correspond well to the model which will be available soon. For the moment, it seems that the device is mainly intended for the United States and Canada, but it is not impossible that it manages to find its way to us. Indeed, the mobile is quite interesting and could claim excellent value for money.
A 90 Hz LCD screen on the front
The Moto G Play 2023 features a slightly more modern design than the latest version. It is equipped with a LCD screen with a definition of 1080×2400 pixels and a perforation to leave room for the 5 megapixel front photo sensor which allows you to take a selfie. To optimize scrolling when consulting long Internet pages or social network walls, the screen slab has a 90Hz refresh rate resulting in smoother, more eye-pleasing movements. The phone will be powered by a 5000 mAh capacity battery, which should give it great autonomy. This good news is a little tarnished by the fact that the battery does not support the load greater than 10 watts, thus offering a fairly long recharge time. There is a fingerprint reader in the back. The cellphone can withstand splashes.
What configuration for photos and what performance?
For photos, the Moto G Play 2023 uses a 16-megapixel main sensor, which is an improvement over its predecessor. It is associated with a 2 megapixel sensor dedicated to macro shots, that is, only a few centimeters from the subject. There is one more other 2 megapixel sensor which is there, this time, to optimize portraits thanks to its calculation of the depth of field allowing to apply background blurs, for example. The Moto G Play 2023 smartphone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G37 processor with 3 GB of living memory. In terms of internal storage, it will be necessary to be satisfied with the 32 GB offered before inserting a micro memory card up to 512 GB. The phone is 4G compatible and does not support NFC prohibiting contactless payments or pairing with other available devices supporting this technology.
The new Motorola Moto G Play 2023 smartphone will be available early January in the US and in Canada for a price of 170 dollars. We will see in the next few weeks or months if Motorola makes an announcement for its availability in France.
