Motorola has launched Moto G8 Power Lite as the fifth smartphone in the Moto G8 family. As the name suggests, it is a "lite" version of the Moto G8 Power that was unveiled about a couple of months ago. It means the phone brings a huge battery with longer battery life but with toned down specifications.
The Moto G8 Power Lite sports a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) Max Vision IPS TFT LCD display. Under the hood, it has an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It has been released in a single configuration i.e. 4GB RAM with 64GB onboard storage (microSD card support up to 256GB).
The phone has triple rear cameras including a 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The notched display houses an 8-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with a claimed battery life of up to 36 hours. The good thing is that it is supported by a 10W rapid charging. However, it will be running Android 9 Pie out of the box which is outdated considering Android 10 has been out for such a long time. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the back panel.
The Moto G8 Power Lite has been priced at £149.99 for the sole 4GB/64GB variant. The color options include Royal Blue and Arctic Blue which will be available for consumers.
