The Moto G4 Play can now be purchased via Republic Wireless and used on the carrier’s Adaptive Coverage platform.
This Adaptive Coverage technology works in a similar manner as Google Project Fi, combining the power of cellular and Wi-Fi networks, but giving the latter more priority than the former in places where it is available. The network will connect your Moto G4 Play to a Wi-Fi network rather than use your cellular network this saving you a substantial amount of data or rather money that you’d have used to buy data bundles.
Now, according to Republic Wireless, those willing to get their hands on the Moto G4 Play can be ready to do so as from January 18, which is this Wednesday. The carrier will be selling the phone at just $149, however, be reminded that this is the most slimmed-down model in the Moto G4 series, which also has the likes of Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.
The Moto G4 Play has a 5-inch IPS LCD display screen that is equipped with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (720p HD). Deeper into the phone, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor to run the show. This processor is paired with a RAM of 2GB while the onboard storage is 16GB, but there is room to expand it via a microSD card slot that can handle up to 128GB.
On camera matters, the Moto G4 Play ships with an 8MP snapper on the back with a LED flash beside it. On the opposite end is a 5MP shooter that should deliver great selfies and video calls. To keep the phone on is a 2800mAh battery. Even though you get Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, the midrange handset is also expected to be updated with Android 7.0 Nougat at some point in the coming days, especially now that the Moto G4 and G4 Plus have already received the treat.
