Moto G8 is the Newest Competitor to Redmi Note 8 Pro

Motorola’s G series has enjoyed a lot of success over the years and, why not? The mid-range series from the company has offered great specifications, and an overall impressive package at a very decent price.

Today Motorola unveiled the 8th iteration of the G series and while we do to see some improvements, the G8 falls short in some other aspects.

Design & Display

The Moto G8 uses a 6.4-inch IPS LCD panel that uses an HD+ (720 x 1560 pixels) resolution, coming in at just 268 PPI. On the top left corner of the display, the front-facing camera is placed in a punch hole instead of a notch this time around.


Looking at the optics you may be fooled into thinking that there’s a quad-camera setup on the back but in reality, the Moto G8 actually has a triple camera setup. The main camera unit is a 16MP sensor with a wide f/1.7 aperture. The second one is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, providing a 119-degree field of view, alongside a dedicated 2MP macro lens. The fourth “camera” on the back is actually a relatively large Laser AF system.


The Moto G8 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset built on the 11nm architecture, making great improvements in performance and battery life over its predecessor.

There’s only a single memory and storage configuration available for the Moto G8; 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The storage can be increased using a hybrid microSD card slot.

Battery & Pricing

Powering the Moto G8 is a 4,000mAh battery that Motorola claims will give you “40-hours of usage” on a single charge, thanks to some software optimizations. If the battery does get low and you need a quick boost, the G8 can be fast-charged using the 10W USB Type C charger that is included in the box.

The Moto G8 will initially go on sale in Brazil for a price tag of BRL 1,143 (~PKR 37,878). Motorola plans on bringing the Moto G8 to other markets including Europe and Asia.
