Motorola’s G series is its most successful ever, and over the past few years has been what’s kept the manufacturer going. While the company is expected to soon reveal its first true flagship smartphone in years, the Edge+, it’s also getting ready to expand the G family even more.
Remember that recently leaked stylus-toting Motorola device? Because its official-looking render leaked so soon after the first ever mention of the Edge+, some people assumed it was that, but it’s not (and this should have been made obvious by its huge bottom bezel, unworthy of a true high-end device in this day and age).
Instead, it’s going to be called Moto G Stylus, according to famous leakster Evan Blass, aka @evleaks.
The Moto G8 Plus and Moto G8 Play have already been made official, and we’re expecting the Moto G8 and G8 Power to surface in February at MWC. The G Stylus could join them.
Additional details dug up using Canadian and FCC certifications reveal that the Moto G Stylus has the codename “sofia+”. That’s interesting because the Moto G8 Power is codenamed “sofiar”, which means the Stylus may just be a variation of the G8 Power – perhaps sharing specs aside from, obviously, the stylus. The model number of the G Stylus is XT2043-4.
The Moto G8 Power is allegedly going to feature a 6.36-inch FHD+ touchscreen, the Snapdragon 665 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, quad rear cameras (with a 16 MP main one), a 25 MP snapper for selfies, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. It should run Android 10 from day one.
