In our previous article, we talked about the new Moto G200 smartphone, which comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus SOC at €450. Along with that phone, Motorola also launched quite a handful of new Moto G phones. So apart from the G200, there are four new smartphones under the G series named the Moto G71, G51, G41, and G31. So by the names, you can understand that the G71 is the most expensive among these four phones and the G31 is the cheapest.
Starting with the cheapest of the bunch, the Moto G31, to no surprise, has a plastic build. Its back panel has a textured finish, and there is a triple camera setup on the top left. On the front, there is a display with a hole punch in the middle and a big bottom chin. The USB Type-C port is present on the bottom, whereas the 3.5mm headphone jack is on the top. On the right side, this phone gets a fingerprint scanner/power button, the volume rockers, and the Google Assistant key.
The display on the front is a 6.4-inch Full-HD+ OLED with a 60Hz refresh rate. This is quite interesting because the Moto G200 gets a 144Hz LCD but the cheapest Moto G phone that launched today has an OLED panel. Under the hood, it gets the MediaTek Helio G85 SOC which also means there is no 5G support. There is 4GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. You can also add up to a 1TB microSD card to expand the storage.
In terms of the cameras, Moto G31 gets a primary 50 Megapixel sensor with Quad Pixel technology and PDAF, a secondary 8 Megapixel sensor for ultrawide shots & 2 Megapixel macro camera. You can shoot only 30fps 1080p videos via the primary rear camera. For selfies, the phone gets a 13 Megapixel camera.
Finally, there is a 5000mAh battery, and the phone supports 10W charging. Android 11 runs out of the box.
Moto G31 starts at €200. This budget phone will be available first in Europe, followed by Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East.
Next up, we have the Moto G41. It looks like the G31, but there are some specifications that are different. First of all, there is the same MediaTek Helio G85 chip under the hood & also the same 6.4-inch 60Hz OLED. But, instead of a 50 Megapixel primary rear camera, this phone gets a 48-megapixel primary sensor. Now, you may think that this is a downgrade, but this camera also supports Optical Image Stabilization. So that’s quite interesting for a budget phone. The other two cameras are the same – an 8MP ultrawide + a 2MP macro. There is the same 13MP selfie shooter.
While the Moto G41 has the same 5,000mAh battery, it supports 30W fast charging, which is definitely a big upgrade over Moto G31’s 10W charging.
This phone is priced at €250, and it will first be available in Europe and then later in Latin America and the Middle East.
This phone is no different than the Moto G51 that launched in China earlier this month. So, this one is a 5G phone, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus chipset under the hood. Design-wise, again, it is the same as the Moto G31 & G41. It has a 6.8-inch display, but unlike the G31 & G41, this is an LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate. The camera setup on the rear includes a primary 50 Megapixel shooter with no OIS, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro shooter.
There is a 5,000mAh battery under the hood, but interestingly, there is no fast charging support. You get a 10W charger in the box, just as in the case of Moto G31.
So while the name makes us believe that this phone sits above the G41, in reality, this is not the case. The Moto G51 is priced at €230, so it is €20 cheaper than the Moto G41. This phone is coming first to Europe, followed by Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East.
This is the most expensive phone in this group and has the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G SOC under the hood. There is a plastic build, a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom. Speaking of the display on the front is a 6.4-inch OLED with a 60Hz refresh rate, so apart from the Moto G51, all the phones have the same OLED panel. There is 6/8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The camera setup on the rear includes a primary 50-megapixel camera, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultrawide camera, and a third 2 Megapixel macro shooter. The phone gets a 5,000mAh battery and supports 30W fast charging.
Moto G71 is priced at €300, and just like the other three phones, it will be available in Europe first and then later in Latin America, India & the Middle East.
So these were the four new launches by Motorola, and there isn’t much difference between these phones which is the reason why the price difference is also not very huge between the cheapest and the most expensive phone.
