Motorola is now rumored to have a phone called the Moto G20 in the works. It seems the OEM has made some unusual choices for this device, as its SoC comes not from Qualcomm, or even MediaTek, but from Unisoc instead. According to a new Geekbench leak, it is an octa-core chipset clocked at 2.0GHz.

It is increasingly clear by now that Motorola's latest G-series smartphones have product names along the lines of Gx0 in 2021. Of these, the G10 and G30 have been released thus far - which may make some consumers wonder what happened to the G20. New leaks assert that it does indeed exist, and may launch with some slightly unexpected specs.

A device with a matching name has surfaced on Geekbench, rocking a very unfamiliar processor apparently made by Unisoc, rather than MediaTek or Qualcomm as has become usual among Android OEMs. This CPU, which may or may not be called the T700, has been detected as having 8 ARM cores, at least 1 of which might run at up to 2.0GHz.

This apparent atypical direction on Motorola's part might suggest a very budget nature for the Moto G20. Then again, this "Unisoc T700" is reportedly made on a 12nm node, whereas the G10/G10 Power's Snapdragon 460 is 14nm (and 1.8GHz besides). It is also believed to support display refresh rates of up to 90Hz (which is present in the G30), as well as LPDDR4 memory.

The G20 is also currently said to have a code-name, (as with the rest of its real or predicted 2021 Moto G siblings) which is java, and to have 64GB of internal storage - as does the G10. Finally, going by this existing device, the G20 could stand to get a battery of about 5,000mAh in size.

Therefore, should its new tips prove accurate, it could easily fall into the ~US$200 catergory. Then again, this "Moto G20" lacks anything like official launch or availability information as yet.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
