Moto G8 or G8 Plus tipped to offer solid power boost, triple cameras
The Motorola Moto G7 and G7 Plus are two of the better budget phones in the U.S. right now, offering a dual-camera setup and solid if unspectacular chipsets.
Now, XDA-Developers may have obtained key specs for a Moto G8 series device via a source. The outlet isn’t sure if the specs are related to the Moto G8 or the Moto G8 Plus, but it certainly suggests a solid upgrade over the previous phones.
According to XDA, the new Moto G8 model has a Snapdragon 665 processor, much like the Xiaomi Mi A3 series and realme 5. The octa-core Snapdragon 665 is a direct follow-up to the Snapdragon 660, offering the same Cortex-A73 and Cortex-A53 CPU cores but bringing an improved GPU, a 2x power boost for AI, and a smaller manufacturing process.
In other words, you can expect a pretty solid improvement over the Moto G7 in terms of gaming, battery life, and AI capabilities. Furthermore, it’s believed that the new phone will be available in a 4GB/64GB flavor, with 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB models also mooted.
The outlet also suggests that the Moto G8 series phone will be equipped with a triple rear camera setup, featuring a 48MP primary sensor, 16MP ultra-wide camera, and a depth sensor. This should result in a more flexible camera platform, as opposed to the main camera+depth sensor pairing seen on previous models.
Other specs obtained by the website include a 25MP selfie camera, a 6.3-inch FHD+ screen, the Night Vision camera mode, and no Android One support.
