Motorola has announced their first phones of the year 2020, the Motorola Moto G Power and the Motorola Moto G Stylus. As expected from the G series of smartphones, the new devices are low-to-mid budget phones running Android OS.

Motorola Moto G Power

The device boasts a 6.4-inch display. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. It has 4 GB RAM and 64 gigs internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion. The AI-powered primary camera is a triple lens setup (16 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP).

The smartphone features a 5,000 mAh battery. The manufacturer is promising up to 3 days of use between charges, along with 27 hours of video playback.

There is no NFC, waterproof certification, or wireless charging.

Motorola Moto G Power is priced at $250 (₹17,800 approx.).

Motorola Moto G Stylus

You guessed it right, the device has a dedicated stylus. It is the first Motorola phone ever to come with a pointing device. In fact, it joins an elite list of smartphones across the brand and price spectrum to feature a stylus.

The device boasts a 6.4-inch display. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. It has 4 GB RAM and 128 gigs internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion. The AI-powered primary camera is a triple lens setup (48 MP + 16 MP + 2 MP).

There is no NFC, waterproof certification, or wireless charging.

The stylus is housed in the chassis of the device through a hole in the bottom. It pairs with the Moto Note app and captures whatever is written or drawn on the display of the phone, even when the screen is locked. There is no Bluetooth connectivity of the stylus with the device as can be seen on Samsung’s S Pen.

So far, Samsung Galaxy Note series of devices were the go to choice of people looking for a phone with a stylus. Will Motorola be able to make a dent in that market? If we go by prices, the Motorola Moto G Stylus is available for $300 (₹21,300 approx.), which is several hundred dollars less in comparison.
