Motorola is preparing for the MWC: a top of the range is coming as well as Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power

Posted on

It cannot be said that the newly filed 2019 was an easy year for Motorola . The strong competition from Chinese rivals has in fact eroded important market shares, but never as this year the company owned by Lenovo seems ready to rise from its ashes . Not only will the innovative and long-awaited Razr arrive soon on the shelves , but the company seems ready to battle in the medium and medium-low segment with the launch of new specimens of the G and  E series .

In addition, according to the latest rumors it also seems that on the stage of the next MWC a new top of the range will be unveiled , the first for Motorola for some time now. The Barcelona fair could indeed be a good time to catalyze the general attention as both Huawei and Samsung will present their latest creatures separately.

Returning to the mid-range, Motorola has been marketing Moto G8 Plus and Moto G8 Play for some time , but to date there has been no trace of the basic variant . Just this model together with Moto G8 Power have emerged in a series of leaks that concern both their (almost) complete specifications and a couple of renders . The two devices are actually very similar in substance and the biggest differences lie in the resolution of the screen, the front camera, the battery capacity and the presence of an additional photographic sensor on the back.

As you can see from the images, the first models of the G series will probably have a hole in the display . At the moment the presence of NFC is not confirmed and it seems that only some variants will be equipped with dual-SIM. However, it remains possible that there are other codes with slightly different characteristics and widespread only in some markets.
