Motorola is readying a couple of new stylus-equipped budget smartphones. The Moto G Stylus 2023 and Moto G Stylus 5G 2023 have been making rounds of the rumor mill for a few months now. While we still don’t have an official launch date for either model, the Lenovo-owned company may not keep the duo under wraps for much longer. A massive leak has already revealed plenty about the Moto G Stylus 2023. We have detailed specs and leaked official renders showing the phone’s design from all angles.
Shared by The Tech Outlook, the renders show the Moto G Stylus 2023 in two colors: blue and copper. The rectangular camera module houses two sensors and an LED flash unit, with “50MP” printed on it. The primary sensor should have an aperture of F/1.8 with 2µm pixels. Specs of the secondary camera are not known but Motorola’s marketing materials reportedly mention features such as portrait shots, close-up shots, and low-light images. We don’t have any information about the selfie camera as well.
The selfie sensor on the Moto G Stylus 2023 resides within a tiny punch-hole on the top of the screen. It’s a 6.5-inch display with an HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. Bezels on the sides and the top are fairly minimal but the chin is quite big. The phone has its volume rockers and the power button on the right. The latter is recessed, confirming the presence of a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The SIM tray can be seen on the left, while we have a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, microphone, speaker, and stylus slot at the bottom.
Helio G88 will power the Moto G Stylus 2023
A Geekbench listing earlier this month revealed that the Moto G Stylus 2023 will be powered by MediaTek’s Helio G88 chipset. It has two ARM Cortex-A75 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.80GHz. Motorola may offer the handset in 4GB and 6GB RAM options. It will run Android 13 out of the box. Fueling the whole package is a 5,000mAh battery. The report doesn’t mention the charging speed, though. Both 4G and 5G models topped out at 10W last year.
With the majority of key specs known already, the Moto G Stylus 2023 should be nearing its launch. Its 5G sibling should accompany it out of Motorola’s doors. The company launched last year’s 4G model in February, with the 5G model coming in April. Both versions may arrive in April this year.
