The latest member in the G-series, the Moto G8 Plus is a capable midranger. Upfront we have a 6.3-inch IPS display with FHD+ resolution and a small waterdrop notch for the 25MP selfie cam. Around the back, we find the 48MP F/1.7 main shooter and 5MP depth sensor stacked below the 16MP F/2.2 ultrawide snapper. The fourth cutout is for the laser autofocus module. Right of the cameras we have the traditional fingerprint reader with the Moto logo.

Going into the internals we find Snapdragon 665 SoC at the helm, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The battery comes in at 4,000 mAh and supports 18W fast charging. On the software side, we have Android 9 Pie.
