Motorola has made good on an interesting round of rumors with the launch of the Moto G50 5G. Unlike the pre-existing phone of the same name, this one has a MediaTek Dimensity-series SoC rather than a Qualcomm platform. It is available to buy from now - albeit only from Lenovo's division in Australia.

Motorola has finally made the projected mid-year update of the Moto G50 5G official. It does indeed set itself apart from the early-2021 version of the same phone with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC rather than a Snapdragon 480. The OEM has made the former available with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, expandable with microSD cards.

Otherwise, the 2 version of the Moto G50 have the same specs, which include the rather underwhelming notched 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ (albeit also 90Hz) display, kept on with a 5,000mAh battery. This relatively large power-pack only charges at 10 watts (W), however. On the upside, Motorola's most up-to-date take on Android also features in the refreshed device.

The "new" G50 also still has 48+2+2MP rear cameras, although they are now in a square housing on rear panels re-finished in Meteorite Gray or Green options. Then again, only the former seems to be available from Lenovo Australia's online store at present. It goes for AU$399 (~US$285) from now.
