Motorola may be done trying to chase down Samsung and OnePlus in the flagship market, but the company is continuing to roll out solid and value-friendly mid-range devices. The latest of which is the Moto G Stylus 5G that was just announced earlier today.
The Moto G Stylus has been an interesting device ever since it was first launched, as it provides users with a built-in stylus, without being too overly expensive. As for the G Stylus 5G, we have a 6.8-inch 1080p display, complete with the Snapdragon 480 5G, up to 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage.
Battery life with this new handset should be a dream thanks to the enormous 5,000mAh cell. Motorola is claiming that you’ll get two days of battery life, which you’ll definitely need considering that the Stylus 5G only supports up to 10W charging speeds.
Not much has changed in the camera department, other than the placement of the camera array itself. There’s a 48MP primary camera, coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor which will be used for the majority of your pictures. But there’s also the spec-sheet-stuffing macro and depth sensors that are more there for looks than anything else. On the front, you’ll find the same 16MP selfie camera that just about every other budget or mid-range phone makes use of, so nothing special here.
Other features of the Moto G Stylus 5G include a 3.5mm headphone jack along with a water-repellent coating. This means that you won’t have a full-on IP rating, but something is better than nothing at all.
If you skipped out on the Moto G Stylus that was launched in January because it lacked 5G connectivity, you don’t have to wait too much longer. The Moto G Stylus 5G will launch on June 14th, while starting at $400 for the base model. It appears that the phone will be available through most of your carriers, except for Verizon.
