Motorola just unveiled the Moto G8 Power Lite earlier today. It features a 6.5-inch HD+ panel, a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC, a triple-camera setup at the back, and a 5,000mAh battery. The phone will retail at €169 ($185), and will be available first in Mexico and Germany.

Most newly-released Motorola phones have been mid-rangers. So it is quite puzzling when Motorola decides to release a 'lite' version of one of its phones. That's what we get today in the form of the Moto G8 Power Lite, which Motorola unveiled earlier today.

Moto G8 Power Lite comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD panel that has a waterdrop notch at the center. A MediaTek Helio P35 SoC powers the contraption, coupled with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. There appears to be only one storage configuration with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. Thankfully, there is a micro SD card slot that allows further expansion. The phone's colossal 5,000mAh battery charges at a puny 10W via a micro USB connector.

Moto G8 Power Lite's rear camera array consists of a 16MP primary sensor assisted by a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. An 8MP selfie shooter rounds things off. Lastly, there's a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. The phone runs Android 9 Pie out of the box, which is quite puzzling, considering that the Moto G8 Power comes with Android 10.

Prima facie, the Moto G8 Power Lite, looks to be dead on arrival. The €169 ($185) price tag might make it an attractive prospect for those on a budget. However, several alternatives from competitors like Nokia, Xiaomi, and Realme offer much better hardware for the same price. The phone will go on sale in Mexico and Germany first before becoming available for purchase globally.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
