Well, in 2020, Motorola has brought us several cheap Android phones along with some flagship phones in between. However, at the beginning of 2021, on January 14, Motorola will launch four smartphones, namely the Motorola One 5G Ace, Moto G Stylus and G Play & G Power.
A fresh start for this year also provides a lot of opportunities for smartphone manufacturers to correct the mistakes they made last year. And it seems Motorola doesn’t want to waste much time and wants to start 2021 with a squad.
Of the three versions, the Motorola One 5G Ace is the most affordable phone from Motorola 5G. The spec sheet of Motorola One 5G Ace also states that the device is highly efficient.
At the heart of the Motorola One 5G, Ace is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. Apparently, this chipset is the lighter version of the Snapdragon 765G processor.
The SoC is paired with 6GB of RAM and offers 128GB of storage space. One 5G Ace features a 6.7-inch Full HD + display with HDR10 support.
Under the hood, it has a 5,000mAh battery that backed up for up to three days on a single charge. Moreover, there is a triple camera setup on the back that houses a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP wide camera, and a 2MP macro.
Other features of the Motorola One 5G Ace include a 3.5mm jack, NFC support for Google Pay support, and an expandable storage option. The phone is set to come at $ 399.
The Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power retain the same name as their predecessors for 2020
The inscription below the Motorola One 5G Ace is the Moto G Stylus. Yes, it might sound confusing, but the company launched the Moto G Stylus in 2020. So, this is the Moto G Stylus (2021).
The phone packs small upgrades compared to the 2020 model. It is powered by the Snapdragon 678 chipset, which is actually better than the Snapdragon 665 found on the Moto G Stylus (2020).
It pairs with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 4000mAh battery, which is the same as the 2020 model. As for the camera setup, it rocks the same triple camera setup found on the Motorola One 5G Ace.
As for the pen, it is just a negative addition. You won’t see or be able to do as much with the stylus as you can with the Galaxy Note series. Seriously, there are no comparisons here. There is no support for NFC technology and the phone will launch at $ 299.
The arrival of the Moto G Power (2021) is actually a downgrade from the 2020 model. It comes with Snapdragon 662, less than the SD665 found on the Moto G Power (2020).
The Moto G Power features a 6.6-inch HD + display, which is another drop compared to the Full HD + resolution found in last year’s Moto G Power.
Other specifications include a 5000 mAh battery, triple rear cameras (48 MP primary, 2 MP macro, 2 MP depth), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack with expandable storage. No NFC support.
According Android Central, The 3GB / 32GB storage variant will cost $ 199, and the 4GB RAM / 64GB variant will cost $ 249.
Moto G Play returns in 2021 in the United States
FYI, Motorola Moto G Play did not launch again in 2020 in the US. But in 2021, you can get the Moto G Play in the US. Being a budget phone, you should not expect out-of-the-world performance from it.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 powers the Moto G Play. It is coupled with 3 GB of RAM. The screen on the device is a 6.5-inch 720p HD + screen. Under the hood, it is powered by a 5,000mAh battery.
The good thing is that it features a 3.5mm headphone jack, and there is a dual camera setup that includes a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth lens. It will be available at only $ 169.
Sadly, all of these Motorola phones will be shipped with Android 10 out of the box. Yes, there is no numerical error here. It is indeed Android 10 OS.
But Motorola said Android 11 will arrive on these devices in the future. However, there is no ETA. Pre-orders for devices are available through the Motorola website and retail partners such as Amazon, Best Buy, etc.
