  • The Moto G8 has an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
  • The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 665 SoC.
  • The Moto G8 is the vanilla variant under the Moto G8 series.

Motorola has launched a new member to its G series of smartphones. The Moto G8 has come out of the rumour mill and made its debut in Brazil for now. The latest Motorola handset brings specifications that, in a way, counterbalance the other variants in the series Moto G8 Play, Moto G8 Plus, and Moto G8 Power. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the front residing inside a punch-hole design, and three cameras at the rear. It also fits the pricing hierarchy among its siblings under the series.

Motorola Moto G8 Price

The Motorola Moto G8 is priced at BLR 1,299 for the lonesome variant in Brazil. The pricing translates to Rs 21,000 in India but that's just a converted price. The official pricing could be way lower, considering the Moto G8 Plus was launched at a price of Rs 13,999 in India. We believe the Moto G8 will cost around Rs 10,000 as and when it launches in India. Motorola has confirmed that it will bring the smartphone to other markets in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Latin America.

The Moto G8 has two colour options White Prism and Capri Blue (as per the translated version).
