The Moto G8 Power Lite was spotted on Geekbench and on the Bluetooth SIG website, suggesting an imminent launch. More recent information on the smartphone comes from its Google Play Console listing that has divulged a few key details related to its display, RAM, processor, and OS. The Play Console listing has a render of the Moto G8 Power Lite which further reveals its front design. As the name goes, it is expected to arrive as a lighter version of the Moto G8 Power (known as Moto G Power in the U.S) that was announced recently.
The new image of the Moto G8 Power Lite (codenamed Blackjack) that has been spotted on the Play Console varies from the renders that tipster Roland Quandt had released earlier this month. The key differences include a waterdrop notch instead of a punch-hole camera while the rear panel is polycarbonate-based. This is not much of a surprise since the Moto G8 Power Lite is a budget handset.
Moto G8 Power Lite specifications and features
According to the Google Play Console listing, the Moto G8 Power Lite flaunts an HD+ display with a resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels. The device is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC with 4GB of RAM. Information on the display size and storage options are unavailable at the moment.
The Moto G8 Power Lite is loaded with Android 9.0 Pie, although the final product might ship with Android 10. Connectivity options include dual SIM 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, Wi-Fi, USB Type-C, and more.
There is no official word on the camera. Owing to the ‘Power’ moniker, the smartphone is expected to feature a beefy 5,000 mAh battery, although details are not available. Previous leaks have revealed that the smartphone sports a rear panel-mounted fingerprint scanner with the trademark Moto dimple placed at the centre.
