Motorola has unveiled its newest budget-tier smartphone, the Moto G Play (2023). Sporting an ultrawide display, a 16-megapixel triple camera system and a 5,000mAh battery, the G Play (2023) sounds like it could be a pretty decent mid-range device.

Motorola announced the phone as part of its 12 Days of Moto giveaway running from December 5th to 16th, which includes giveaways of devices for the traveler, the eco-concious, the gamer, and more. The new Moto G Play will be one of the giveaway devices — U.S. and Canadian consumers can enter to win one on December 8th. You can learn more about that on Motorola’s Instagram channel.
