Motorola has launched yet another smartphone called the Moto G Stylus in the US, mere months after its second iteration arrived in January 2021. However, there is a significant upgrade this time around. The Moto G Stylus now has 5G connectivity. There are a few minor tweaks here and there too, which we'll talk about in a bit. The Moto G Stylus 5G will cost US$400 and will be available for purchase starting June 14th via AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.

The Moto G Stylus 5G upgrades its predecessor's chipset to a shiny new Qualcomm Snapdragon 480. Despite its deceptive naming, the chipset is quite capable and can punch well above its weight class. Furthermore, Motorola also lets you configure the smartphone with up to 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Motorola has thrown in a micro SD card slot, too. Motorola has also upgraded the Moto G Stylus 5G's battery capacity to 5,000mAh, but it charges at a measly 10W. The stylus gets a Galaxy Note-like clicker, too, but lacks advanced features like navigation control due to no Bluetooth LE.

Everything else about the Moto G Stylus 5G is identical to its LTE counterpart, including the camera layout and screen resolution. The smartphone ships with a 6.8-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel. A high-refresh-rate screen would have been ideal, given its asking price. Its rear camera array has a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 5MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. A 16MP sensor handles selfies and video calls. Lastly, Motorola has thrown in a rear-mounted fingerprint for biometric authentication.

Motorola should ideally launch the Moto G Stylus 5G globally in the coming weeks. Despite its somewhat high asking prices, it is an excellent 5G smartphone for those on a budget and will compete against offerings from Realme, Samsung and Xiaomi. It appears that Motorola has torn a few too many pages out of Xiaomi's book, especially those that talk about confusing product names.
