Motorola is expanding its G series lineup today with the new Moto G50 5G. The phone borrows most of its features from the Moto G50 which debuted back in March, but this one has the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset replacing the Snapdragon 480 seen on the 4G variant. Apart from that, there are not many differences, minus the cameras and fingerprint scanner placement.
Talking about the differences, the main camera is the same 48MP sensor but Motorola has replaced the 5MP macro on the standard model with the 2MP one, though the depth sensor is unchanged at 2MP. The phone does have a fingerprint scanner but it’s placed at the side instead of the back as seen on the 4G model.
Now on to the front, you get a similar 6.5-inch HD+ LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate, whereas the top houses a waterdrop notch for a 13MP selfie camera.
The aforementioned MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card. The phone still gets its power from a 5,000mAh cell with 15W fast charging, and out of the box the phone boots on Motorola’s My UX on top of Android 11. Other features include a headphone jack and NFC receiver.
As for the price, the Moto G50 5G goes for AUD 399 which is around NPR 35,000 in Nepal. The phone comes in Meteorite Gray and Green color options. The availability of the phone outside Australia is yet to be known.
