Motorola Moto G 5G launched

As Expected, the “Motorola Kiev” launched as the Moto G 5G today (via TechRadar) in Europe. The device has a similar rear panel to the higher-priced sibling, Moto G 5G Plus. The latter launched almost four months back at 349 euros. The front, however as a single centered punch-hole display compared to the double punch-hole on the Moto G 5G Plus.

There are power, volume buttons to the right, and a Google Assistant button to the left. The camera array on the rear is a squircle design and also has a Motorola logo that sits inside the fingerprint sensor.

As speculated, the display is a 6.7-inch FHD+(2400x1080p) which is similar to the Plus variant. But it has a lesser 60Hz refresh rate screen. Under the hood, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC. For cameras, there is a Samsung GM1 48MP main lens, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro lens on the rear, and 16MP front camera. The difference from the Plus variant is that its sibling doesn’t have a second front lens.

All this is backed up by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging. However, the device runs Android 10 and not 11 out of the box.
