Update, January 28 2020 (3:53AM ET): We’ve already got a look at the Moto G8 and G8 Plus specs courtesy of XDA-Developers (see the original article below). Now, 91mobiles has posted what it says is a render of the vanilla Moto G8.
The picture gives us a look at both the front and back of the apparent Moto G8. We get a punch-hole cutout on the left side of the screen, a vertically stacked triple camera setup, and what appears to be a rear fingerprint scanner embedded in the Motorola logo. Check out the image below for a better idea.
Other notable details seen in these renders include a 3.5mm port at the top of the phone, a prominent chin, and what seems to be “macro” and “ultra-wide” branding on the back.

Fortunately, XDA-Developers has just uncovered what it says are details related to the Moto G8 and G8 Power. A “trusted source” told the outlet that the two phones share several features, such as a punch-hole display, physical fingerprint scanners possibly embedded in the rear Motorola logo, a Snapdragon 665 processor, and Android 10.
Otherwise, the Moto G8 is slated to come with a 6.39-inch HD+ LCD screen, 2GB to 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage (no word on microSD support), dual-SIM support for some variants, but no NFC. The phone is also said to offer a 4,000mAh battery with 10W charging, making for a hefty upgrade over the Moto G7’s 3,000mAh pack (although it had 15W charging).
The vanilla Moto G8 is tipped to feature a triple rear camera combo, featuring a 16MP f/1.7 main camera, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide shooter (118 degree field of view), and 2MP f/2.2 macro sensor. An 8MP camera in a punch-hole cutout is said to be available for selfies.
The Moto G8 on steroids
Looking for a little more oomph? Then the Moto G8 Power might be for you then, as it could offer only one variant (4GB/64GB), a 6.36-inch FHD+ LCD screen, and dual-SIM support in some regions. Staying true to the Power line-up, the Moto G8 Power is expected to offer a 5,000mAh battery with 18W charging. This would line up with an earlier FCC filing for a Motorola phone with a 5,000mAh pack.
Motorola’s Power device is also said to have an identical camera layout compared to the vanilla G8, save for the addition of a fourth, 8MP sensor. There’s no word what type of sensor this is, but we’re guessing it’s either a depth sensor or potentially a telephoto camera (telephoto sensors are usually restricted to higher end phones though). Selfies are apparently handled by a 25MP snapper.
