On the other hand, the E6 Play is a budget handset that comes with conventional rectangular design, single rear camera, and entry-level hardware. Here's our roundup.
Up front, the Moto G8 Play sports a familiar waterdrop notched design with ultra-slim bezels on the three sides and a thick bottom chin, while the Moto E6 Play sports a conventional rectangular screen with prominent bezels on top and bottom. On the rear, the G8 Play offers a vertically stacked triple camera setup, while the E6 Play houses a single camera unit.

The Moto G8 Play comes with a triple rear camera setup comprising a 13MP (f/2.0) main sensor, along with a 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the other hand, the E6 Play sports a single 13MP (f/2.2) rear camera. Up front, the G8 Play houses an 8MP selfie snapper, while the E6 Play gets a smaller 5MP shooter.
The Moto G8 Play is fueled by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset, while the Moto E6 Play draws power from a Snapdragon 665 processor. As for memory options, both phones offer 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Under the hood, the G8 Play packs a solid 4,000mAh battery, while the E6 Play is backed by a 3,000mAh battery.

Though there is no word on the availability of the G8 Play and E6 Play in India as of now, but we expect both handsets to hit Indian shelves soon. The G8 Play costs EUR 245 (nearly Rs. 19,400) and the E6 Play costs EUR 109 (nearly Rs. 8,500) in international markets. Hence, we expect them to arrive at a similar price in India.
