Motorola Officially Launched Moto G8 Without Mainstream Notch



Motorola Officially Launched Moto G8 Without Mainstream Notch

The Moto G family continues to grow. After introducing the Motorola Moto G8 Plus and its two brothers (Moto G8 Power and Moto G Stylus), the company has just announced the new Motorola Moto G8, which is now in the mid-range range.

We will get to know about it better below, but let me make a small summary. The smartphone reaches the market with a generous perforated 6.4-inch screen, four rear cameras, and a 4,000 mAh battery. Motorola has launched the device in Brazil. However, the company says it will arrive in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Australia in the coming weeks.

Perforated screen and HD + resolution

Let’s start by reviewing the aesthetic section. The Moto G8 arrives in prism white and Capri blue with a line-based decoration on the back.

Here, we find the three cameras, two in a small module, and another one is somewhat larger. They are located in the upper left corner next to the LED flash. As usual, the fingerprint reader is located under the Moto logo.

Regarding the screen, we have a 6.4-inch Max Vision panel with perforated HD + resolution. We can see a hole in the corner of the screen to avoid the mainstream notch. In this way, the screen stretches to the upper corners, although a small chin of a few millimeters is still visible at the rear.

Otherwise, the smartphone has a headphone jack in the upper area and USB Type-C port in the lower edge. From Motorola, they emphasize that they have applied a “water repellent design” and a “powerful lower speaker.”

However, to check its operation, it is better to wait for the complete review. It also has Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and 4G, but nothing from NFC.

A mid-range with Snapdragon 665

Now, we are going to see what’s under the hood. The Moto G8 has the Snapdragon 665 processor. It is an SoC that was introduced last year. It has eight cores at a maximum speed of 2 GHz and the Adreno 610 GPU. Next, the device has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of Expandable internal storage with a microSD card slot.

The battery is 4,000 mAh. FYI, it is 1,000 mAh less than the Moto G8 Power version and the same figure as the Moto G8 Plus. Motorola does not mention that there is fast charging technology, but it is capable of running for 40 hours on a single charge.

The operating system is Android 10 with the Motorola layer (very similar to Android Stock.) It comes with Moto Experiences and Moto Gametime (a function focused on reducing distractions during game sessions.) As for the camera, and although the images seem to have four lenses, the device has three sensors. The main one has a resolution of 16 megapixels with aperture f / 1.7; the secondary one is a macro of two megapixels f / 2.2, and the third one is a wide-angle camera that its resolution remains unknown. The selfie is in charge of an eight-megapixel camera with aperture f / 2.2.

Versions and price of Motorola Moto G8

The Motorola Motorola Moto G8 lands on the market in a single version of 4/64 GB in white or blue. Its price in Europe has not been disclosed, but in Brazil, it costs 1,299 Brazilian Reals, which is about 280 US Dollars. It will be available outside Brazil over the next few weeks.
