Motorola's upcoming stylus-ready phone will be called the Moto G Stylus, according to a Tweet by Evan Blass. Additionally, a Geekbench for the device has also surfaced, corroborating Evan's Tweet. We can expect Motorola to tell us more about the device at MWC 2020.

Although Motorola is yet to officially acknowledge it, we know that the company is working on a phone with a stylus, thanks to Tweet posted by prolific leaker Evan Blass. There was some confusion around its nomenclature, primarily due to a Motorola Edge+ Geekbench listing that surfaced after Evan's initial reveal. That, it turns out, will be an entirely different device. A new Geekbench listing emerged today that tells us the phone in question will be called the Moto G Stylus. It has been corroborated by Evan, who put out another Tweet confirming the device's name.

The Geekbench listing tells us that the Moto G Stylus has 4GB of RAM and Android 10. Based on its single-core and multi-core test results, it appears to be running a mid-range Qualcomm chip, possible one from the Snapdragon 6xx or 7xx series. XDA Developers' Mishaal Rahaman chimed in stating that the Moto G Stylus would be new additions to the existing Moto G8 series of devices. If that is true, we could be looking at a price tag of about $200-300, making it significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Note 10 Lite's near $550 price tag.

We can expect Motorola to tell us more about the Moto G Stylus at MWC 2020. Motorola has confirmed its presence at the event, and it'll be interesting to see what they have in store for us. A new flagship phone would be nice, for starters. The Moto G series is already very popular in several markets such as India, and now would be an excellent time for Motorola to establish its presence in the 'affordable flagship' segment.
