Meanwhile, both the Moto G8 Play and Moto G8 Plus have a triple camera system, which includes a 117-degree ultra-wide angle lens similar to the Motorola One Action's.

As for the G8 Plus, it has a 48-megapixel main camera and night vision, stereo speakers tuned by Dolby and a 25-megapixel front camera.
