A phone calling itself the "motorola moto g(8) plus" has been benchmarked as a Snapdragon 665 device with 4GB of RAM. These specs are in accordance with previous rumors surrounding this putative device. The new results also show that it runs Android 9.0, which suggests it could still launch this year.

Despite the implementation of its new and increasingly popular One line, Motorola are now linked to an 8th generation of its classic Moto G series of mid-rangers. Thus far, it is rumored to consist of base G8, Play and Plus variants. The latter has allegedly popped up on the Geekbench 5 database.

The device in question has been tested as the "motorola moto g(8) plus". Its results show that it has 4GB of RAM and runs on an octa-core SoC code-named "trinket". This alias may be familiar to those who have followed the Xiaomi Mi CC9e/Mi A3 or Realme 5 prior to their respective launches: it is associated with the Snapdragon 665 processor.

Therefore, this new leak lines up nicely with various other prior rumors about the putative new Moto G flagship. Then again, they may also pertain to another new variant: perhaps the G7 Plus' successor will get further embellishments such as a larger battery. The new Geekbench listing - which suggests more or less comparable performance when measured against other Snapdragon 665 phones - also shows Android 9.0 as an OS.

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.
