Motorola Moto G8 Plus Full Specifications, Price and Release Date


Moto G6 Plus in May 2018, Moto G7 Plus in March 2019 and this Moto G8 Plus arrives before the end of the year, after Motorola - or Lenovo - has stepped on the accelerator after launching not a few Moto One.

The Moto G8 Plus has little to do with its predecessor, being more similar to the last Moto One than the previous generation. From the Moto One inherits the design of the cameras, which leave the circular module in the center to win a triple camera with a 48-megapixel main sensor.


Moto G8 Plus Features

  • 6.3-inch HD+ resolution display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 64 of internal storage expandable via microSD card
  • Triple rear camera: 48 megapixels main + Wide angle of 16 megapixels + 5-megapixel depth
  • 25-megapixel front camera
  • Android 9.0 Pie with a very clean experience
  • 4,000 mAh battery with fast charging turbo power
  • Rear fingerprint reader, 3.5 mm jack, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and autofocus laser

Traditionally, the Moto G Plus model has been the one that brought a better camera and the Moto G8 Plus is no exception. On the back, we have three lenses although they look like four, and the circle above the flash is not an additional lens, but a laser focusing system.

The design of the rear completely breaks the schemes that have accompanied the Moto G series for years, starting from the lenses in a vertical arrangement, in a configuration very similar - or directly equal - to that of the last Moto One like the Moto One Macro.




However, in this case, we have a 48-megapixel main sensor, accompanied by a 16-megapixel wide-angle and 117-degree viewing angle that doubles functions as an "action camera" and another 5 megapixels for depth calculation.

In front, the selfies are in charge of the 25-megapixel lens, in a camera that is integrated into the notch in the form of a drop on the screen. Speaking of the screen, we have a diagonal of 6.3 inches with Full HD + resolution.


Snapdragon 665 and 4,000 mAh battery


Lenovo does not marry anyone and the same includes Samsung processors in Moto One Vision than MediaTek in Moto One Action or Qualcomm in others such as this Moto G8 Plus. The SoC chosen is the Snapdragon 665 (11 nm and four cores at 2 GHz and another four at 1.7 GHz.

It is a considerable improvement over the Snapdragon 636 of the previous Moto G7 Plus, 14 nm and already a couple of years ago. The RAM, of course, remains the same in the 4 GB, although the storage is now offered in two flavors: 64 GB or 128 GB, expandable using a microSD memory card.

We have a bigger battery in this Moto G8 Plus, with a capacity that reaches 4,000 mAh with support for fast charging of 18W. As for connectivity, we have the usual suspects, with the minijack still present and NFC connectivity present in some markets yes, in others no.


Moto G8 Plus Versions, Release Date, and prices


The Moto G8 Plus has been presented along with the rest of the Moto G8 range at an event in Brazil. At the moment we do not have more information about its sales in other regions. What we know is that it will be available in two versions, with 64 and 128 GB of storage, as well as in two colors: blue and red. The starting price is 290 dollars and will arrive in November.
