Motorola is still in a great mood as a result of more than 100 million units sale of Moto G series. The US based company has now launched new G series models to commemorate this monumental achievement. Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus launched with 6.4” displays, Snapdragon 665 chipsets today for the American, European and Canadian markets. Both models are really a piece of good news as they have been buzzing the tech media space running for several weeks. However, Motorola removed the number from the series name, opting for the G instead of the G8.
The first brings a massive 5,000 mAh battery, while the second one comes with a stylus as you can guess from its name. Two-pack 6.4-inch screen, Snapdragon 665 chipset, and very attractive pricing.
The Moto G Stylus is a more exciting entry for its built-in stylus, a first for Motorola. Although it does not come with the fancy pressure sensitivity and Bluetooth functionality of Samsung's S Pen, you get the same basic utility at a fraction of the price. Motorola is also bringing its own Moto Note app, which allows you to summarize notes and sketches as soon as you remove the stylus from your residence in your right corner. There is also a customizable quick launch menu that can create multiple shortcuts for your convenience.
The 6.4-inch IPS display of FHD + resolution has a punch-hole cutout for a 16MP selfie cam. The aspect ratio is 19: 9.
The back features 3 cameras with a fingerprint reader and 48MP main shooter inside the Moto logo, and a 16MP Ultra Action camera inherited from Moto One Action. It is important to note that this is a dedicated video camera and cannot shoot stills. The third shooter is a 2MP macro cam that comes with a 2cm focus distance.
Under the hood, we have a Snapdragon 665 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage that can be expanded via a micro SD slot. USB Type C has a 4,000 mAh cell with 10W charge.
The phone boots Android 10 which come with clean moto functions. Other notable specs include a 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and a hybrid dual SIM slot that can hold 2 Nano SIMs or a single SIM and microSD card.
The Moto G Stylus will go for $ 299 and later it will arrive in spring. It is listed only on the Motorola US website with availability for other markets.
The Moto G8 Power is built around the same 6.4 "IPS 19: 9 FHD + resolution display. The selfie camera layout and 16MP resolution remain intact but this time it has dual speakers.
Around the back, we have a four-cam array, which is streamlined by a 16MP main shooter. There is also an 8MP ultra-high snapper with a 118 degree field and 8MP telephoto module with 2X optical zoom. The fourth shooter is a 2MP macro camera on the G stylus. The fingerprint reader is again located in the circular Moto Dimple.
On the go, we have a Snapdragon 665 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which can be expanded through a microSD slot. Motorola is also advertising water repellent but no real IP rating.
One of the key features of the device is its 5,000 mAh battery which comes with an 18W charger
The Moto G Power will retail for $249.99 while the G Stylus will cost $299.99. Like the G Stylus, it's expected to arrive later this Spring or availability may
