Motorola unveiled four new affordable Moto G gadgets at CES 2021, an affordable Android phone, a 5G, and a model that supports a stylus, a strong battery life. With the new phone, we have the Moto G Stylus 2021, an update of the original Moto G Stylus launched last year.
The new and err version comes with an installed Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 chipset, plus 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable internal storage with a memory card. The phone offers a large 6.8-inch LCD, a 1,080 x 2,400 pixel resolution screen and a 4,000 mAh battery, as well as a 48-MP + 8-MP + 2-MP + 2-MP quad-lens rear camera with ultrawide mode.
The 2021 Moto G Stylus ranges from US$299.99. The Motorola One 5G Ace also made its debut, as well as the 5G, featuring a 6.7-inch LCD, a 1,080 x 2,400 pixel display. It runs the Snapdragon 750G chipset, and offers up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal (expandable) storage. There is a rear camera of three 48-MP + 8-MP + 2-MP lenses with ultrawide mode, plus a large battery of 5,000 mAh.
Motorola One 5G Ace, it is the 5G that becomes a selling point because next generation connectivity is still scarce at the budget end of the market. It’s also the only one of these four new handsets that supports wireless charging.
Two other phones we’ve seen before on the market, with different names (unusual for Motorola). The 2021 version of Moto G Play (also known as G9 Play) offers a 6.5-inch LCD, 720 x 1,600 pixel display, Snapdragon 460 chipset, up to 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of storage (which can be expanded). There is also a dual lens 13-MP + 2-MP rear camera, and a large capacity battery of 5,000 mAh. It is the cheapest of the new phones launched by Motorola, with prices starting at just $169.99 for this particular model.
Lastly there is Moto G Power, updated for 2021 and known elsewhere as G9 Power. There is the same 5,000 mAh battery as G Play, although the rear camera of three 48-MP + 2-MP + 2-MP lenses is an improvement over other phones.
You also get a Snapdragon 662 chipset, up to 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal storage (which you can develop). The display is a 6.6-inch LCD, a 720 x 1,600 pixel resolution panel, and the price of this phone starts at $199.99.
All these phones come with a USB-C port, and run Android 10 instead of the most recent Android 11 software. The handset goes on sale in the US on January 14.
