This could be our first look at the Motorola Moto G10 Play

The Moto G lineup from Motorola has been a massive success ever since it was launched in 2013, while the company was still in Google’s hands. Even after Motorola was sold off to Lenovo, though, the overall DNA from the series did not change that much over the years. They have taken some controversial turns, they no longer enjoy the best update support out of the bunch, but overall, they’re still what they’ve been since the beginning: budget smartphones that can do the job without a hitch. Moto G smartphones have perdured over nine generations, with the last generation being the Moto G9 series. The Moto G10 series is coming soon, though, and thanks to renowned leaker OnLeaks (on, we may have a first-hand look at how the Moto G10 Play will look like.

The device is mentioned as the “successor to the Moto G9 Play”, so no final name is decided yet. But the device has the model number XT2117 (we recently learned the Moto G 5G has model number XT2113) and will feature a design very similar to what we’ve seen with the Redmi Note 9 series, with a square camera setup in the back centered over the Motorola logo. The camera setup itself is a triple camera setup, although we have no information about the cameras themselves. Among the few specs we do have, though, is a 6.5-inch display with a hole-punch camera cutout set to the left corner. The screen also has a sizable chin, although we’re not expecting anything better given the price point that we’re expecting this to launch at.

The fingerprint sensor in the Moto G10 Play has been moved to the power button instead of the back, a placement that’s more convenient for some people rather than the back fingerprint sensor these phones have been launching with. The device also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, something that each day is becoming rarer and rarer. This device has already been FCC-certified and also received TÜV Rheinland certification: this one revealed that the phone will sport a 4,850 mAh battery, which should provide for plenty of juice given how the phone will launch with mid-range/budget specs.

Are you excited about this device?
