A brief six-second promotional video featuring the Moto G8 has surfaced thanks to the regular leaker Evan Blass. The details you can make out from the video only relate to its external design and some guestimates on the camera section. Evan Blass has not shared any other information on the device. The fact that there is this promotional video in circulation ensures that the company must be readying itself to release the phone in the market soon. The higher version Moto G8 Plus is already in the market.
48MP Primary Sensor in a Triple-Camera Setup
The Moto G8 smartphone appears to have a polycarbonate body and the video does indicate there are three sensors in the rear camera setup and a waterdrop notch in the front for the selfie shooter. While the side bezels appear to be thin, the chin at the bottom of the screen is slightly wide. On the right side, you cannot miss the power on/off physical button and adjacent to it is the volume rocker.
The rear panel indicates a three-camera setup with the primary shooter being 48MP. You can only guess that the other two lenses would comprise a wide-angle one and a depth sensor.
The remaining specifications of this Moto G8 smartphone can only be speculated based on the known specs of the Moto G8 Plus.
Moto G8 Plus Also Has a Triple-Camera Setup
The Moto G8 Plus sports a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display offering a screen resolution of 1,080×2,280 pixels. The aspect ratio is 19:9 and there is a waterdrop notch for the front camera.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 665SoC coupled with Adreno 610 GPU powers the device. The CPU clocks a decent 2GHz speed. The processor is supported by 4GB RAM and 64GB storage further expandable up to 512GB through a microSD card. Android Pie OS version 9.0 is the operating system and offers the stock Android experience with minimal user interface interference.
As mentioned, the Moto G8 also sports a triple-camera setup on the rear with a 48MP primary sensor, a 5MP depth unit for portrait shots and a 16MP wide-angle lens with a dedicated 117-degree field-of-view for video recording.
A 25MP camera for selfies and 4,000mAh battery round off the hardware specs. The battery gets 15W Turbo Charging support as well.
How much of these are watered down in the plain Moto G8 is to be seen.
