TL;DR
  • Motorola has launched four budget-focused Moto G phones.
  • All but one of the devices pack a 60Hz OLED panel, while two of the phones are 5G-enabled.

The Moto G series of budget phones are no-frills devices that usually offer decent value for money. We’ve already seen a budget Moto G device launch this week, and now Motorola has launched four more products.

The Moto G31, G41, G51, and G71 all have a few features in common, namely a 5,000mAh battery, 8MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP macro lens, a center-mounted punch-hole cutout, a 3.5mm port, and Android 11. But look a little closer and you’ll find some differences.

Moto G31 and G41

Starting with the Moto G31 (seen above) and G41, the two devices also share a 4G-toting Helio G85 processor, a 6.4-inch FHD+ OLED panel (at 60Hz), and a 13MP selfie camera.

The G41 is the better offering on paper though, touting a 48MP main camera, 30W charging, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Meanwhile, the G31 packs a budget-tier 50MP main camera, 10W charging, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of storage.

Moto G51 and G71

Moto G71

Want something with 5G connectivity? That’s where the Moto G51 comes in, packing a Snapdragon 480 Plus chipset to enable faster cellular speeds. Otherwise, you’re still looking at a budget-tier proposition for the most part.

The G51 serves up a 6.8-inch FHD+ LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The phone also brings 10W charging, a 50MP main camera, and an IP52 rating.

Finally, the top dog of the lot is the Moto G71 (seen above), and it brings a Snapdragon 695 5G processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Motorola’s mid-ranger also serves up a 6.4-inch 60Hz OLED panel, 30W charging, a 50MP main camera, and 16MP selfie shooter.

Pricing

The Moto G31 starts at €199.99 (~$227), according to MySmartPrice, and is available in Mineral Gray and Baby Blue color options. Want the Moto G41? Then you’ll be splashing out €249.99 (~$284) on the device, which is available in Meteorite Black and Pearl Gold colorways.

The Moto G51 will retail for €229.99 (~$261) and is available in Bright Silver and Indigo Blue colors. Those intrigued by the Moto G71 will need to splash out €299.99 (~$340) for the phone, coming in Arctic Blue, Iron Black, and Neptune Green options.

Of course, this isn’t the only announcement Motorola had today. The firm also announced an affordable flagship-level device dubbed the Moto G200. So those looking for a ton of power at an attractive price should check that device out.
