Motorola’s G-series phones have been well-regarded in the midrange space for some time, and as time goes on they’re moving the range squarely into the upper midrange. Today, a leak posted at WinFuture shows a Moto G8 Plus in the offing with a rear-facing triple camera and powered by a Snapdragon 665 with a beefy battery.
Despite the headline specs, the G8 Plus seems otherwise standard for its price point. On offer is dual-SIM, USB-C charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s a 6.3-inch device that runs 2280 x 1080 resolution and has a notch.
It’s unclear if the storage options will be available in all markets, or if your market will dictate which model is available to you. Regardless of model, the G8 Plus is said to offer users 4GB RAM which is very much the entry point for current phones.
The camera breakdown is a point of interest, with a 48MP main camera, a wide angle camera with a 16MP sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. Those cameras should give a lot of creative options for your photography, and it’s a very welcome upgrade over the camera on the G7 Plus.
According to the article:
the new Motorola Moto G8 Plus will be presented at an event in Brazil on October 24, 2019, but will soon be launched in Europe as well. Prices are not available yet.
This is an interesting timeline given the G7 range only came to market earlier this year. Perhaps they’ve had enough success and are hoping to cash in on the Christmas rush.
