New Motorola Moto G8, characteristics, price, technical sheet

24 mayo, 2021

The intermediate family of Motorola mobiles for 2020 is being specified after previously knowing some of the models, such as the Moto G8 Power and the Moto G8 Plus. The one that names the new series was missing, the Motorola Moto G8, and we have it here: the manufacturer has unveiled it by surprise for everyone; even if initially it has limited availability.

The Moto G8 is a mobile that continues to set a trend within the brand, no matter how much Motorola is dedicating more efforts to the One family. Balanced hardware, elegant design and good materials, multiple cameras and a more than decent battery, these would be some of the keys to the new phone. Do you want to know all its specifications in detail? No problem.

Mid-range soul with some shortcomings

Motorla moto g8

Gone are the times where Motorola reigned in the mid-range with its ‘G’ mobiles: Chinese competition is not only very high, but also aggressive. Especially within the mid-range to which the new Moto G8 is aimed; hence some details of the phone are lackluster in comparison.

Motorola bets on a large 6.4-inch screen with a small obstacle in the form of a hole for the front camera (in the upper left area). Despite the size, the Moto G8 panel stays in HD + resolution, something fair considering the range and price. In addition, it maintains 4 GB of RAM and a storage space that remains at 64 GB; extendable via SD cards.

The selected processor is an old acquaintance: Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665. SoC with more than balanced performance and consumption, it should provide a smooth operation for the user, both when opening applications and in games with a certain graphic load. What’s more, 4,000 mAh battery remains at a good level: given the technical capabilities of the Motorola Moto G8, the autonomy will be more than enough.

The triple camera that is already standard

There is no self-respecting mobile that goes on the market with a single camera, that is already unthinkable. In this sense, and given that it aspires to the mid-range, the Motorola Moto G8 bets on a triple rear camera with a size for the images that escapes from the loose figures of its opponents: 16 megapixels for the main sensor. This sensor is accompanied by an 8 MP camera with a wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The photographic section is finished off with an 8 megapixel front camera inside a hole in the screen.

In terms of software, Motorola keeps the Moto G8 clean with a pure enough system version. What’s more, The Moto G8 part updated to Android 10.

Moto G8 price and availability

The mobile has just been presented internationally, but it is in Brazil where it can already be purchased: its price is 252 euros (1,299 Brazilian reais). Motorola ensures that the Moto G8 will also arrive in Europe, but does not cite any specific date.
