Moto-G4-Play

Motorola has announced that the Moto G4 Play, a more basic variant of the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus that were launched in India this May, will be going on sale as an Amazon exclusive starting September 6. No pricing details accompanied the announcement, which comes in the form of Motorola India’s Twitter cover image.

To recall, the Moto G4 Play was unveiled just a day after its better-specced siblings were, and was listed in the US. Notably, the company still displays a ‘coming soon’ label on the US site. No pricing information has been provided, but a recent mention on import/export tracking website Zauba tipped an estimate of Rs. 8,999.

The tipped price for the Moto G4 Play seems reasonable, in comparison to the Moto G4 at Rs. 12,499, and the Moto G4 Plus, which starts at Rs. 13,499.
