Motorola’s lineup is expanding in a big way today with the introduction of four new smartphones.
First up is the Moto G8 Plus, which is the follow-up to the Moto G7 Plus that launched eight months ago. One of the upgrades that the Moto G8 Plus can tout is its triple rear camera setup, with includes a 48MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide angle camera with 117-degree field of view, and a 2MP depth cam. There’s a laser autofocus sensor on the back, too. Around front is a 25MP selfie camera.
That selfie cam lives in a notch at the top of the Moto G8 Plus’s 6.3-inch Full HD+ screen. Inside there’s an octa-core Snapdragon 665 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4000mAh battery, which is considerably larger than the 3000mAh battery found in the Moto G7 Plus. There are USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jacks on the G8 Plus as well.
Motorola says that the Moto G8 Plus is available today in Brazil, Mexico, and India, and it’ll be available throughout Europe and Australia later this month. Launches in Latin America are planned for the coming month, too. Pricing will be set at €269 ($298 USD).
The Moto G8 Play has a similar design to the Moto G8 Plus, but there are some notable spec differences. The Moto G8 Play has a slightly smaller 6.2-inch HD+ screen, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, but it does have the same 4000mAh battery as the G8 Plus. It’s also got the same 48MP main, 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP depth sensors, but it’s missing the laser autofocus sensor found on its Plus sibling. There’s a MediaTek Helio P70 processor in the G8 Play, too, along with a microSD card slot, 8MP selfie cam, and both USB-C and 3.5mm ports.
Expect the Moto G8 Play to launch in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and Perú today, with launches planned for other countries in Latin America in the coming months. It’s price will be R$ 967,12 ($241 USD).
Next is the Motorola One Macro. As its name suggests, one of its highlight features is its 2MP macro camera that Motorola touts will let you focus on objects as close as two centimeters away. When you’re not getting up close and personal on your subject, there are also 13MP main and 2MP depth cameras on the back of the phone.
There’s a 6.2-inch HD+ screen on the front of the Motorola One Macro as well as an octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD card slot, USB-C and 3.5mm ports, and a 4000mAh battery inside it.
The Motorola One Macro is launching today in Brazil, Mexico, Australia, India, and throughout Europe at a price of €199 ($230 USD).
Finally, Motorola is launching a new member of the Moto E family. The Moto E6 Play features a 13MP main camera and 5MP selfie camera, 5.5-inch 720p screen with no notch, a MediaTek MT6739 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s powered by a 3000mAh battery.
You’ll see the Moto E6 Play launch today in Brazil and Mexico, and it’ll be released in throughout Europe starting at the end of November. It’ll also be available in countries in Latin America and Asia in the coming months. Pricing for the Moto E6 Play will be set at €109 ($121 USD).
