Lenovo-owned Motorola is gearing up to launch its new Moto G8 series device, the Moto G8 Power Lite in India this month. The mammoth-battery packed Moto G series phone made its global debut on April 3. The Moto G8 Power Lite is set to enter the Indian smartphone market on May 21. The confirmation of the Moto G8 Power Lite Indian launch comes via an official teaser on the e-commerce portal Flipkart.
The teaser page on Flipkart didn’t reveal anything other than the launch date. However, Prashanth Mani, the Managing Director for Motorola India in a recent tweet cited that the new Moto phone will fall under the sub-10k price range.
The COVID-19 did not just take a toll on human lives but it has had a severe economic impact on the global tech sector as well. Major mobile tech events got canceled due to coronavirus and leading OEMs rather opted for online launch events to announce their latest models. While some countries are normalizing from the pandemic, mobile manufacturers have slowly begun releasing their devices to outreach their consumers.
To recall, the Moto G8 Power Lite was launched in Germany last month for a price of EUR 169 (around INR 13,900). Whether the new Moto handset that is due to launch in India will tag a price similar to the European pricing that remains to be seen.
Speaking of the aspects, like other Moto Power models the Moto G8 Power Lite offers longer battery life. It ships with a big 5000mAh battery (which is claimed to deliver 2-days worth juice on a single charge) and supports 10W charging.
The phone flaunts a glossy back panel with either blue shade or dual blue-tone color gradient. The Moto G8 Power Lite equips triple cameras which are stacked vertically at the top left side. The speaker grill is chiseled at the bottom of the rear panel. Upfront, the phone features a dew-drop style display with thick bottom bezels.
The Moto G8 Power Lite is splash resistant and offers a dedicated microSD slot for expandable storage. It runs Android 9.0 Pie OS.
