Moto G Stylus powered by SD665 SoC goes official for $299

Lenovo-owned smartphone maker Motorola has updated its Moto G8 lineup with the launch of two new smartphones — Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power. These new mid-range devices cost under $300 but aims to offer experience similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.


The newly launched Moto G Stylus features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Max Vision display which the company claims is “water repellent”. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC along with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

In the camera department, the device features a 48-megapixel main sensor that comes with Quad Pixel technology, as well as a 16-megapixel action camera with a 117-degree ultra-wide-angle sensor, a 2-megapixel macro vision lens, and a Laser autofocus Time-of-Flight sensor.

On the front side, it features a 16-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video calling. The device also come with dual-stereo speakers tuned by Dolby.

Motorola is also announcing a Moto Note app that works with the stylus. It comes with a Moto G Stylus, which slots into the bottom right. The phone runs Android 10 operating system out of the box and almost bloat-free software experience.

The 4G smartphone is powered by a 4000 mAh battery with 10W charging support. Motorola’s Moto G Stylus comes in Mystic Indigo color for a price of $299.99 and will be available for purchase in the United States starting this Spring.
