Motorola unveils the Moto G50, a mid-range smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC, a 5,000 mAh battery and 5G connectivity
The Motorola Moto G50 is here, and it has a 720p display. While the new device looks fairly modern, its 1,600 x 720 'Max Vision' display lets it down somewhat. The 6.5-inch display is an IPS panel at least, and its 85% screen-to-body ratio is reasonably high. The display has a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 269 PPI pixel density, too.
A 5,000 mAh battery powers the display, as does a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC and 4 GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 480 contains a 5G modem, but it is unclear if the device supports 5G across both of its SIM card slots. Motorola has equipped the device with a hybrid second card slot though, which is to say that it supports expandable storage or dual-SIM connectivity and not both simultaneously. If you do plan to use a microSD card with the Moto G50, then it supports up 1 TB cards.
The Moto G50 has a 13 MP front-facing camera, along with a 48 MP primary camera, a 5 MP macro camera and a 2 MP depth sensor. Motorola has not included stereo speakers, but there is a USB Type-C port that can recharge the device at up to 15 W, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and an NFC module. The Snapdragon 480 SoC integrates Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 5 support, too.
Motorola will offer the Moto G50 with 64 GB and 128 GB of storage, starting at €229 or €250 depending in which Eurozone country you purchase it. However, some markets will only receive the 64 GB model, but all should have its two Aqua Green and Steel Grey colours.
