After a series of leaks and rumours, Motorola has finally unveiled the Moto G Stylus 5G. The Lenovo-owned company has launched the smartphone in the United States. The Moto G Stylus is the cheapest smartphone to arrive with a Stylus. The 4G version of the smartphone was launched in 2020 but the 5G variant is different not only in terms of design but also comes with new features. Motorola is yet to reveal its plan of launching smartphones in other markets including India.
Considering India is a market where there are more budget/ mid-range phone seekers than the premium ones, Moto G Stylus 5G might attract a lot of takers. One of the prime reasons could be the price and the Stylus that is included with the phone at that price point. Motorola has so far stuck to launching mid-range and budget phones in the Indian market. The only premium devices that were launched in the last two to three years include the Moto Razr, Moto Edge. So let us have a look at what the Moto G Stylus 5G offers.
Moto G Stylus 5G: Price and availability
Moto G Stylus 5G has been launched in the United States at a price of $399 (approximately Rs 29,121). The smartphone will go on sale in the US starting June 14. The G Stylus will only be available in the Cosmic Emerald colour. It can be bought from the company’s official website, Best Buy, Walmart, B&H Photo and Amazon.
Motorola is yet to announce whether it plans to launch the smartphone in India. It would be nice if Motorola did, but the company didn’t launch the other two versions of the phone, so this launch also seems unlikely.
Moto G Stylus 5G: Specifications
Moto G Stylus 5G features a 6.8-inch LCD full HD+ display with a resolution of 2,400×1,080 pixels. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The Moto G Stylus 5G runs on Android 11 with Motorola’s My UX skin on top.
In terms of camera, the smartphone has a quad-rear camera setup which includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor along with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. On the front, there is a 16-megapixel for selfies.
The smartphone houses a 5000mAh battery with support for 10W charging.
