The Moto G series is shaping out to be Motorola’s best selling smartphones. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the company decides to follow a more aggressive approach to the timing of the G series. Its only been a couple of months since the Moto G7 arrived, and here we are with news of the imminent launch of the Moto G8 series including the MotoG8 Plus.
An unconfirmed report from Winfuture says the Mot G8 Plus will make its official debut later this month. To be precise, the report says the device will be launched in Brazil on October 24th before making it to Europe in the coming weeks.
Besides the purported launch date, Winfuture also released some official-looking renders coupled with detailed specs of the Moto G8 Plus. And from what we see here, the Moto G8 Plus gets a water-drop notch with a triple-camera setup with laser auto-focus on the rear side. Should these renders be true, it then holds that the Motorola device with a Pop-up camera that surfaced earlier this month is an entirely different Motorola smartphone.
While the leaked images suggest Motorola is retaining the G7 notch design, the rear looks entirely revamped, now with a triple-camera setup in a vertical orientation, different from the circular setup on the G7. The fingerprint scanner sits below the camera set up right within the Motorola Batwing logo.
Moto G8 Plus Specs
The Moto G8 Plus as reported by Winfuture.de will come flaunting a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display and will be powered by Snapdragon 665 processor and paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage. It will reportedly come fitted with a 48MP primary sensor sitting at the top of the camera arrays, and alongside that is a 16MP 117° ultrawide angle camera dubbed “Action Cam” , and a third 5MP depth sensor. Unlike what the images depict, the Moto G8 Plus gets a triple camera setup, not four. But there is a dedicated special auto-focus system, as well as an LED flash.
Elsewhere, the phone will feature a 25MP camera for selfies and video calls, 4000mAh battery complete with TurboPower fast charging technology, runs Android 9.0 Pie out, and will come in single and Dual SIM variants.
