Motorola announced the Moto G8 Power back in February and now the Lenovo-owned company is following it up with the Moto G8 Power Lite.
The Moto G8 Power Lite is built around a 6.5-inch Max Vision IPS display of 20:9 aspect ratio. It has HD+ resolution and a notch up top for the 8MP selfie camera.
Around the back you get a fingerprint reader along with a triple camera setup placed vertically in the top-left corner, which is a combination of a 16MP main, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor units.
The Moto G8 Power Lite is driven by a Helio P35 SoC paired with 4GB RAM. The smartphone runs the outdated Android 9 Pie and has 64GB of storage onboard along with a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 256GB.
Its main selling point is arguably the huge 5,000mAh battery, but sadly that charges through a microUSB port at up to 10W.
