Moto G8 Play leaked renders reveal triple rear cameras; specifications tipped too

“Moto G8 specifications reportedly include 6.2-inch HD+ display, 2GHz octa-core processor, 4,000mAh battery, and 8MP selfie camera”

The Moto G8-series is under development just eight months after it introduced the Moto G7 lineup back in February. Now, renders and specifications of Moto G8 Plus have made their way online, showing even the budget model will have triple rear cameras this time around. We can also see the design changes the company is adopting, such as getting rid of the Motorola logo in the front to make the chin smaller and reducing the size of the notch. The Moto G8 Play specifications have also been tipped in a separate report, which also shows live images of the handset. The Moto G8 Play smartphone should be launched at an event the company is hosting in Brazil on October 24th.
