After launching a bunch of Moto G8 family smartphones, Motorola has finally unveiled the standard Moto G8. It has been released without much fanfare and via a quiet product listing on the Motorola Brazil website. It joins previously revealed Moto G8 Plus, Moto G8 Play, Moto G8 Power, and Moto G8 Stylus.
The Moto G8 features a 6.4-inch HD+ (1560 x 720 pixels) Max Vision display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It is the display panel that has a punch-hole in the top left corner. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. Motorola has listed the phone with only 64GB onboard storage which should offer microSD card expansion as well.
The three cameras on the back are 16-megapixel main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The selfie camera is an 8-megapixel sensor that you will find placed within the punch-hole for obvious reasons.
The battery capacity is 4,000mAh and can be charged with the in-box 10W charger. Android 10 is the operating system that you will find on the smartphone and that too in vanilla form. The Moto G8 is priced at BLR 1,299 (about $282) for the 4GB/64GB model with an option to choose from Neon Blue and Pearl White colors.
