While the new model is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 chipset, the old one comes with the Snapdragon 480. The rest of the core specs are quite similar across the board save for the cameras and fingerprint sensor placement.

The new Moto G50 5G sports a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and waterdrop notch for the 13MP selfie cam. Around the back, we have a triple cam setup sporting an altered square housing with a 48MP main shooter next to a 2MP macro cam and a 2MP depth helper.
