Motorola just unveiled two latest mid-range smartphones – the Motorola Moto G Stylus and Moto G8 Power. The G8 Power comes with a huge 5000mAh battery, while the G Stylus comes with a stylus pen as you can easily guess from its name. In this article, we shall be looking at the Moto G Stylus specification and price.
Motorola Moto G Stylus Features
The Moto G Stylus is the more exciting among the two, thanks to its built-in stylus which is a first for Motorola. Though the stylus does not feature the fancy pressure sensitivity and Bluetooth functionality of Samsung’s S Pen, you will still get the same basic utility at a fraction of the price.
Motorola is bringing its own Note app, which allows users to jot down notes and sketches as soon as you take out the stylus from its housing in the bottom right corner. There is also a customizable quick launch menu that can house several shortcuts for your convenience.
The 6.4 inch IPS display of the Motorola Moto G Stylus has a punch-hole cutout for the 16MP selfie camera. The display has an aspect ratio of 19:9.
At the back of the Moto G Stylus, you will find a fingerprint reader inside the Moto logo and 3 cameras with 48MP main shooter and a 16MP ultrawide Action Camera that is inherited from the Moto One Action. It is important to note that this is a dedicated video camera and cannot shoot stills. The third shooter is a 2MP macro cam which comes with a 2cm focus distance.
Under the hood of the Motorola Moto G Stylus, you have the Snapdragon 665 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage which can be expanded via a microSD slot. The phone is powered by a 4000mAh battery with 10W charging over USB Type C.
The G Stylus runs on Android 10 which comes with the neat Moto Actions. Other noteworthy features include a 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 5.0 and a Hybrid Dual SIM slot which can house 2 Nano SIMs or a single SIM and microSD card.
Motorola Moto G Stylus Price
The Moto G Stylus price is $299 and it will be available later this spring. At the moment, the phone is listed only on the Motorola US website, while the availability in other countries still remains unknown.
