Motorola has announced its latest mid-range 5G smartphone, the Moto G Stylus 5G, which is the first budget phone with a stylus that supports 5G. The device packs a 6.8-inch FHD+ screen, Snapdragon 480 SoC, and a quad-camera setup that includes a 48MP primary sensor. All these and more are available at an inexpensive price of $399 which is just $100 more than its 4G variant — the Moto G Stylus 4G — with lesser specifications.
The Moto G Stylus 5G features a 6.8-inch FHD+ LCD display with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio display, 386 PPI and 89% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 480 SoC with support for 5G and packs a 6GB RAM with 256GB of storage that can be expanded up to 1TB with microSD compared to the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage the Moto G Stylus 4G came with.
The smartphone features a 16MP front camera that's housed in a punch-hole notch. On its rear, it packs a quad-camera setup that includes a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 5MP macro camera and a 2MP portrait sensor. Motorola's spot color photo feature is now applicable to videos, enabling users to record a video and have only one color visible while the rest are in black and white. The Dual Capture feature that allows users to record from both sides of the phone is also available on the Moto G Stylus 5G.
The stylus that gives the smartphone its name is redesigned and cylindrical all through which allows it to be inserted into the silo in any way. The device features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and is said to pack a 5,000mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging.
The Moto G Stylus 5G which runs on Android 11 will be available in Emerald color at a retail price of $399.99 (Rs. 29,185 approx.).
From June 14, the device will be available in the US via Best Buy, Walmart, B&H Photo, Amazon.com and Motorola.com.
