For this relatively affordable price, Moto used a MediaTek Helio P70M chipset in the G8 Moto G8 Play. The LCD panel measures 6.2 inch in diagonal and has a HD+ resolution. The phone comes with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, but it can be expanded further via a microSD slow up to 512GB.

Just like the Moto G8 Plus, the G8 Play also has three cameras that even look the same on the outside. However, the spec sheet reveals the main camera is 13MP with an f/2,0 aperture, the wide angle lens comes with an 8MP sensor, and they are complemented by a depth sensor and an LED flash at the bottom of the camera setup. The waterdrop notch at the front houses the 8MP selfie camera.
