Motorola have this week announced the arrival of three new budget-friendly phones, aiming straight for the mid-range market with the Moto G8, Moto G8 power lite, and Moto E6s smartphones.
Given the G series has sold in excess of 100 million smartphones worldwide since first launching in 2013, beefing up this family of smartphones is a wise decision from the company, which will bring the g8 to Australian retailers on 28th May. This will be followed by the launch of the G8 power lite and E6s sometime in June.
“Part of the Moto G8 family, the moto G8 and Moto G8 power lite are Motorola’s latest mid-tier smartphones designed to deliver what Australians value most: a premium experience at an affordable price,” said Danny Adamopoulos, General Manager of Sales, APAC for Mature Markets, Motorola.
Moto G8 will feature a 6.4-inch HD+ Max Vision display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage and a 4,000 mAh battery with promises of 40-hours on a single charge. At AU$329, the generously priced phone also sports a triple lens rear camera set up, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and IPX2 water resistance.
The Moto G8 power lite sits at the lower price of AU$279 and features a MediaTek Helio P35 processor, a slightly larger 6.5-inch HD screen and a 5,000 mAh battery promising 48 hours on a single charge. Those are some nice specs for the price tag, although you’ll have to make do with a Micro-USB charging port and no IPX rating. You will, however, still sit close to the G8 proper, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB onboard storage, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a triple rear camera set up.
The AU$199 Moto E6s will come with a 6.1-inch Max Vision display, 2.0 GHz MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor, 3,000 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage. You’ll also get a dual lens rear camera set up for this very affordable price tag.
Upon launch, all three phones will be available online or via retail at Officeworks, The Good Guys, Big W and Mobileciti.
