Moto G Power and G8 Power are so different twins

Motorola introduced three new smartphones: one in Europe, two in the USA. All three belong to the Moto G family, but for some reason the continuity of generations is read only in the name of the “European” Moto G8 Power. Interestingly, from the considerations of the traditional respect for the Old World to the antiquity of the pedigree?

Models have a lot in common, but not enough forin order to call them different modifications of one device. These are still different smartphones. And in the case of Moto G Stylus, which is unique to the company - for the first time a Moto smartphone has a stylus - this is quite honestly reflected in the name, then the differences between the American Moto G Power and the European Moto G8 Power are a little surprising.

At the heart of all three new G-smartphones isQualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset. 4 GB RAM capacity. The screen for all three is IPS with a diagonal of 6.4 ″ and a resolution of 1080 × 2300, which gives a pixel density of 397 ppi. Everyone has a fingerprint scanner, located the same way - behind. No one has NFC support. The operating system uses Android 10.
Solid average level.

With variations.

Moto G8 Power, as the name implies, will delight the owner with an excellent battery. Capacity 5000 mAh, high-speed charging - 15 watts.

The set of cameras looks rather rich: on the back there are four of them. The main 16 MP, which seems to be a bit at present, but the f / 1.7 aperture hints at the possibility of obtaining good pictures in low light. With it in the ensemble are 8 MP wide-angle (118 °) and 8 MP with a telephoto lens. The fourth camera is 2 MP macro. For selfie, there is a 16 MP camera embedded in the screen.

Built-in storage capacity is 64 GB, expandable.

Oddly enough, the modern one does not have to say that the budget level of the device does not support dual-band Wi-Fi. Then why cut functionality?

Moto G Power

Intended for the American Moto G marketPower is almost the twin of the Moto G8 Power. Almost, but not quite - there are fewer cameras. A module with a telephoto lens fell under the knife, and there were three of them: 16 MP (f / 1.7), 8 MP wide-angle and 2 MP macro. The selfie camera has not undergone changes.

Chipset, memory capacity, screen - all thissimilar to Moto G8 Power. The battery is similar - 5000 mAh, but for some reason 15 W charging is not supported, limited to 10-watt. The batteries last for three days.

But there was a dual-band Wi-Fi.

The cost of Moto G Power is $ 249. Color is only black.
