Motorola launched a new phone under the G8 series today & it’s the Moto G8. So, after the G8 Plus, G8 Power, and G8 Play, the company has now launched the vanilla G8. The phone is available in Brazil starting today & later coming to Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australian markets.
Design-wise, there is hardly any difference compared to the Moto G8 Power. The regular G8 has a similar textured back panel & a punch-hole display on the front. The only noticeable difference between the G8 & G8 Power is that G8 has three cameras on the back whereas G8 Power has Quad cameras. The USB Type-C port is placed on the bottom along with the speaker grill.
The Moto G8 features a 6.4-inch HD+ LCD panel, so the resolution is 720p instead of 1080p as in case of the G8 Power. The SOC is the same as the G8 Plus and G8 Power, i.e., the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SOC. There is 4GB RAM & 64GB storage with the option to expand the storage via microSD card.
There is a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 16-megapixel camera with f/1.7 aperture, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera (119-degree), and a third 2 Megapixel macro lens. On the front, there is an 8 Megapixel selfie camera. There is Laser Autofocus on the rear as well. The fingerprint scanner is also on the back.
Finally, the phone has a 4,000mAh battery & the phone has 10W charging support. Android 10 runs out of the box.
