If you are waiting for Motorola to release a new Moto G-series smartphone, your wait could be over soon. A new WinFuture report has detailed Moto G8 Plus specifications and a possible release date. In comparison to the Moto G7 Plus, the successor's biggest changes include a triple camera setup and a bigger battery.
The Moto G8 Plus is shown with three cameras on the back panel headlined by a 48-megapixel primary sensor. It will be accompanied by a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor (117-degree FoV) and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. You can notice that there is one more cutout but it is only for housing laser autofocus mechanism.
It is reported to come with a 6.3-inch Full HD IPS display with a dot-like notch in the center. This notch will house the 25-megapixel front camera for taking video calls and clicking selfies. Under the hood, it will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. There will be 64GB and 128GB onboard storage options which should be supported by microSD cards for storage expansion.
The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery which is a good upgrade over 3,000mAh on the predecessor. It will have fast charging support to help you get the battery charged quickly. Other noteworthy features will include USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It will run Android 9 Pie out of the box and should also receive Android 10 at some point in the future.
The Moto G8 Plus is expected to become official on October 24th at an event in Brazil. There will be Red and Blue color variants but we could see more options. As for details about pricing and release in other markets, these are currently unknown.
