The Moto G8 series is seemingly finally complete, as Motorola has now announced the Moto G8 itself- a phone which bizarrely landed a long time after the Moto G8 Plus and Moto G8 Play, and a little time after the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus.
There is some confusion in the launch but keeping that aside, there is potentially a lot like in the Moto G8, from its triple-lens camera to its big 6.4-inch screen.
But this is one of the more basic handsets in the range, so much of its appeal will depend on the price.
Moto G8 Plus Launch Date
The smartphone is already available in Brazil, but the rest of the world will have to wait longer. The company claims that it will launch in Europe, Australia, Latin America, and Asia over the coming weeks.
Interestingly, there has been no mention of the US, so it is possible that the Moto G8 will not be launching there. Then again, maybe it is simply going to land as the Moto G since several recent Motorola handsets have been dropped the number in the US.
We have got no information regarding the pricing of the phone, so we will update you later as soon as we have the update.
Moto G8 Design and Display
The phone has a 6.4 inch 720 x 1560 (HD+) LCD screen with 269 pixels per inch, a 19.5:9 aspect ratio on the Moto G8 Plus. It is closer in that sense to the 720 x 1520Moto G8 Play.
As for the design of the phone, it has got bezel below the screen, a slim bezel above, and a single lens punch hole camera cut into the display. Flip it over and you will see the main cameras in block running down the left edge of the rear, while the rear panel itself has a textured design.
Dimensions are 161.27 × 75.8 × 8.95mm, the weight is 188.3g, and it has a water-repellent design, which helps protect it against light rain and accidental spills – though note that it isn’t properly waterproof. It’s available in blue or white.
The battery is healthy 4,000 mAh, and it supports 10W charging which is not that fast compared to other phones. Motorola promises 40 hours battery life after a single charge.
Moto G8 Features
It has 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and it runs Android 10, and like other Motorola handsets this is a near-stock version of Android 10, so there’s minimal bloat.
The Moto G8 also has a fingerprint scanner on the back, plus what Motorola describes as a “powerful” loudspeaker and a 3.5mm headphone port, so given its large screen, it could make for a decent budget media device.
