Announcement. Moto G50 5G for China - More RAM, Less NFC!

The Moto G50 5G smartphone was announced in March. For Europe. And now he has appeared in his historical homeland, in China.

I see only two major differences.The NFC module has disappeared. But there is much more RAM. And for less money. In Europe, the 4 + 64 GB and 4 + 128 GB variants are available and the price starts at € 230 (₽20,800, $ 278). In China, only the 8 + 128 GB model will be available for sale and it costs only ¥ 1499 (₽17300, $ 231). If it suddenly appears on AliExpress, it can be moderately interesting. Why moderately? Because we still do not have 5G and is not foreseen, because the "Chinese" does not have LTE Band 20, because you may have to tinker with software and install Google services.

Let me briefly recall the characteristics of the device.

Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 480. Although formally it belongs to the junior line, it is gaining three hundred thousand points in AnTuTu9. Those. productivity is a good middle class.

The screen is large, 6.5 ″. And even with an increased refresh rate - up to 90 Hz. But the resolution is not high, only 720 × 1600 (270 ppi).

The battery is excellent, 5000 mAh. But the charging speed is modest, no more than 15 watts. And the charger that comes with the kit is generally only 10 watts.

Cameras. 13MP front. The rear camera is triple, 48 + 5 + 2 MP (main module, macro, depth sensor). There are still no sample photos.

Wi-Fi is the fifth, USB is correct, there are two microphones. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back surface in the old fashioned way.
