  • Motorola will come up with the G8 Stylus at this year's MWC in Barcelona.
  • The Motorola Z5 will be coming with a bigger 5000mAh battery.
  • Motorola is rumoured to come with up to five new phones at this year's MWC event.

Motorola is coming with almost five new phones this year to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this year. So far, we know that two of these will the Motorola G8 and Motorola G8 Power while the third one will be a fully-loaded flagship phone with class-leading specifications, carrying the name of Motorola Edge Plus. Rest of the two phones are still a mystery but thanks to more leaks, we can now complete the list. Psst, one of them has a stylus.

A few days ago, a leaked image of a Motorola device toting a new stylus appeared on the web (courtesy Evan Blass) and it carried no name at the time. However, Blass now has the name and it appears to be aprt of Motorola's most popular series of phones - the Moto G series. Yes, Motorola will upgrade its G series this year by giving one of the models a stylus. It will be called the Motorola G Stylus and, as seen in the renders, the phone will have a simple capacitive stylus.

The phone will get the new Motorola design theme previously seen on the renders of the upcoming Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power. The display will lose the notch in favour of a punch-hole cutout for the front camera whereas the bezels will shrink on all sides. Sadly, the specifications are still unknown but given that Motorola is loyal to the Snapdragon 665 for all its G8 variants, you can expect the same chip to make an appearance in the G Stylus.

On the other hand, an FCC certification document has revealed that Motorola will come up with a successor to the Moto Z4. It might be called the Motorola Z5 and according to the certifications, the phone will get a 5000mAh battery. This is a massive upgrade from the sub-4000mAh units of the older models. The best part is that it will continue to support the existing Moto Mods, which means the exiting 2200mAh battery pack could extend the battery life to incredible levels.

Motorola will not include support for 5G on the Z5 but it is rated to support 4G LTE networks as well as 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network. Chances are that the Moto Z5 could end up using the yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 700 series chip.
