Moto G Power Official with 5,000mAh battery & Snapdragon 665
Moto G Power launched today alongside the Moto G Stylus & at least in the U.S., Motorola is doing away with the numerical naming scheme for its Moto G series phones. This means instead of launching the G8 Power, we are getting the ‘G Power.’ Anyways, it shares most of the specifications with the Moto G Stylus with some exceptions.
MOTO G POWER – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
There is the same punch-hole design on the front & on the rear as well, the camera layout is almost the same. The major difference comes in the form of a unique design on the back panel that is present on the “Power” but not on the “Stylus.” The USB Type-C port, headphone jack & the speaker grill is placed on the bottom. Just like the Moto G Stylus, there are stereo speakers.
On the front, there is a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ Max Vision display with a 19.17:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, there is Snapdragon 665 SOC & the phone has 4GB RAM along with 64GB storage that can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD card.
The triple camera setup on the back includes a primary 16 Megapixel f/1.7 camera, a secondary 2MP Macro lens & a third 8 Megapixel 118-degree Ultra-Wide-Angle camera. The camera on the front is a 16 Megapixel unit with an f/2.0 aperture. Some rear camera features include EIS, RAW Photos, HDR, Portrait Mode, etc.
The main USP of the Moto G Power is its 5,000mAh battery, which can last up to 3 days as per Motorola. Of course, that’s possible only if you consider light usage. Still, even on heavy use, this battery can easily last a full day. There is 10W Charging support, so no 15W or 18W fast charging.
