Lenovo owned Motorola just updated the Moto G8 series with the launch of a new entry-level Moto G8 smartphone. Dubbed the Moto G8 Power Lite, the new Motorola smartphone is a follow up to the Moto G8 Power launched earlier in February. It offers a lot for€169 ($185).
The Moto G8 Power Lite will go on sale, first, in Germany and Mexico, before rolling out to the rest of Latin America and Europe, along with Asian and Australian markets in the coming weeks. It is priced at €169 ($185).
The Moto G8 Power Lite as the name implies is a watered-down variant of the G8 Power. And while inherited a few specs from its siblings, the device also comes with a few downgrades. First off, the 5,000mAh cell, the 16MP f/2.0 main and 2MP macro lenses from the Moto G8 power remain, but ditches the ultra-wide lens for a 2MP depth sensor. It has a water-repellent coating, comes only in Turquoise and Blue color options, while it boots Android 9 out of the box.
On the display front, the Moto G8 Power Lite comes fitted with a larger 6.5-inch Max Vision display which offers a much lower 1600 x 720 resolutions. Under the hood is an unknown octa-core processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and a 64 GB internal storage expandable up to 256 GB via the microSD slot.
On the rear panel, the device houses a fingerprint scanner with a triple camera lens. The camera consists of a 16MP f/2.0 main, 2MP macro lenses and a 2MP depth sensor units.
