Motorola’s upcoming Moto G8 and G8 Power have been detailed in a set of leakages from XDA-Developers and 91 Mobiles, and they expose much of the unannounced phones’ specifications and style. Both phones feature display screens with hole-punch cutouts, a very first for Motorola’s G-series lineup, and are powered by the exact same Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 that Motorola utilized in 2015’s Moto G8 Plus.
Although XDA reports that there are a great deal of similarities between the two devices (including their display screen notches, button locations, physical fingerprint sensors, processors, and Android 10 os), there are a few essential differences to be knowledgeable about. The very first is their battery capabilities: while the basic G8 has the very same 4,000 mAh battery capacity as the G8 Plus, the G8 Power has a much bigger 5,000 mAh battery (the like in 2015’s G7 Power).
Then there’s the screen. The G8 Power has a screen with a comparable 1080 p resolution to the G8 Plus, while the basic G8 drops the resolution down to 720 p. Nevertheless, the G8’s screen is ever-so-slightly larger at 6.39 inches, compared to a 6.36- inch screen for the G8 Power. The G8 Power will apparently have a slightly thinner bottom bezel.
In terms of specs, the leaks paint a comparable image for the 2 phones, though XDA believes we might see a somewhat more comprehensive series of specs for the Moto G8. The Moto G8 Power need to be readily available with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, while the Moto G8 might be available with in between 2GB and 4GB of RAM and an option of either 32 GB or 64 GB of storage. It’s currently unclear if either phone will support expandable storage via a microSD card slot.
The Moto G8 Power will obviously come with a quad-camera range, with an extra 8-megapixel f/2.4 camera that will probably be used as a depth sensor. Around the front, the G8 Power has a 25- megapixel selfie camera, while the G8 is more minimal with just an 8-megapixel sensing unit.
Although neither leak has details of a statement or expose date for either phone, it would make sense for them to appear at MWC in just under a month’s time. Whether the company’s G-series has flagship specs is debatable, however until the business revealed the return of the Razr, the lineup was about as flagship as the business’s phones tended to get.
