A few weeks ago we covered a leak of the specifications of the Moto G8, G8 Power and G8 Stylus, which were given thanks to Amazon UK.

Now Motorola has just made the launch of the Motorola Moto G8 official, and while many of the leaked specs match, there are some that don't. Known all the characteristics of the new Moto G8, a mid-range with which Motorola hopes to recover some ground this year.

Design of the new Moto G8: continuous and elegant, but with a negative point

Motorola does not want to risk too much in design matters, and for that reason he decides to stay in the same static line of his previous mobiles. The Moto G8 has a body made of plastic with a subsequent design of linear patterns that in the distance looks very good, but continuing to bet on this material can be very negative.

Unfortunately, the plastic makes the fingerprints very marked, and Although it is stronger than glass, it scratches easily and suffers greatly from any adverse conditions. In addition, the competition is betting mostly on glass.

The camera layout is vertical, following the design canons not only of the brand, but of most devices of 2019. Thus, the fingerprint sensor also maintains the company's logo, a hallmark of its smartphones for a long time. weather.

On the front, Motorola s bets on 2020, and mounts on the car of perforated screens to locate the selfie camera. Goodbye to notch, and hello to all screen design of reduced frames. Point in favor in this regard. The colors of this mobile? Blue and white.

The Moto G8 display is extremely simple

If Motorola's idea is to reposition itself in the mid-range, we think that then it should have put a little more love on the screen of its Moto G8. Manufactured in a 6.4-inch size, the G8's IPS panel features a resolution of just 1560 x 720 pixels (HD +).

This will help the battery to have greater autonomy, because a higher resolution requires a greater consumption of resources, but in the middle of 2020 it is very risky. The vast majority of mid-range mobiles are already betting on Full HD + and have been standardized in that resolution.
