If you regarded on the Moto G10 did you assume “this might be superior if it had 5G and value €250 as an alternative of €150”? Effectively, possibly you didn’t, however somebody at Motorola HQ clearly did. This may increasingly not the introduction the Moto G50 would have needed, however it’s the one it deserves.
It’s notable as a result of it may turn into the primary cellphone with the Snapdragon 480 5G chipset to launch in Europe. This 8nm chip is best than the S460 that powers the G10 due to a pair of Cortex-A76 derived cores (changing 4 A73-based cores). And it has a greater GPU.
Although the 720p 90Hz show received’t stress the GPU a lot.

However then it omits the ultrawide digicam, providing solely a 5MP macro cam and a 2MP depth sensor as an alternative.
Additionally, apparently the funds couldn’t accommodate a quick charger, so that you get a fundamental 10W energy adapter within the field. That may take its candy time filling up the 5,000 mAh battery. The excellent news is that the cellphone helps 15W charging, however you’ll have to produce your individual.
Curiously, the Moto G50 comes with a headset within the field (in some areas at the least). And it plugs into the cellphone’s 3.5 mm jack, which is at all times good to see. Different factor to notice are the plastic physique with water repellent design, USB-C port (USB 2.0), NFC and rear-mounted fingerprint reader.

Some telephones are single-SIM fashions, they are going to have a devoted spot for a microSD card. If you happen to choose up a dual-SIM mannequin, you then’ll get a hybrid slot as an alternative (which means you lose SIM2 if you happen to use a microSD).
If you happen to’re , you may have a better have a look at the G50 on Motorola’s British, German and Italian websites. As we famous the value could differ by nation.
