Motorola smartphone with stylus surfaces in new render

On: January 27, 2020

It appears that Motorola is working on a new smartphone that will arrive with a dedicated stylus pen. Popular gadget tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks has posted a render of Motorola’s stylus-toting offering on Twitter. The photo has revealed the design of the front of the device, apart from the stylus pen. As seen in the photo, the mysterious Motorola phone will come with a capacitive stylus pen and not an active stylus like the one that ships with the Samsung Galaxy Note series handsets. The accessory seems to have a rubber tip, which you could use for doodling, colouring, drawing, and more.

Motorola seems to be working on a new stylus-toting smartphone

Talking about the design of the phone, the render posted by the source shows a Motorola device with a punch-hole in the top-left corner of the screen to house the selfie camera. The handset seems to have narrow bezels on the top and two sides, and a thicker chin. The earpiece of the device appears to be placed in the middle of the top bezel. The volume rocker and power button of the unknown Motorola phone are located on the right side. Lastly, the render suggests that the handset’s screen will be slightly curved towards the sides.

Unfortunately, Blass hasn’t revealed anything about the specifications or the name of the upcoming smartphone. However, he did mention that it won’t be the Motorola Edge+, which is reportedly in the pipeline as well. Speculations indicate that the new handset could be called the Moto G Stylus, which was allegedly certified by a regulatory authority in Canada under the codename XT204304, and by the FCC as well.

The upcoming Motorola phone with a stylus pen is expected to have a slot to house the accessory. There’s also a chance that the stylus pen will be offered as an optional device for the smartphone. Only time will tell. The device is expected to arrive as a mid-range offering that will boot the vanilla version of Android 10 out of the box.
