After making the G10 and G30 official last February, Motorola expands its G-series line further with the G50. Positioned between the G10 and G30, the G50 is a 5G-capable device with its Snapdragon 480 processor.
Motorola Moto G50 5G Specs:
- Snapdragon 480 processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB/128GB storage, expandable via MicroSD
- 6.5-inch HD+ IPS Display, 90hz refresh rate
- 48-megapixel f/1.7 main camera with PDAF, 5-megapixel f/2.4 macro camera, 2-megapixel f/2.4 depth sensor
- 13-megapixel f/2.2 selfie camera
- 4G, LTE, 5G
- WiFi, Bluetooth, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
- 5000mAh battery
- 15w charging
- Android 11
As a 5G version of the Snapdragon 460 used on the G10, the Snapdragon 460 benefits from using more powerful Cortex-A76 cores and a better GPU. For the display, the G50 borrows the same panel used on the G30: a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS variety with 90hz refresh rate. It also borrows the same dewdrop notch that houses a 13-megapixel selfie snapper.
As for the rear cameras, the G50’s setup is very similar to the G10 save for the lack of an ultra-wide-angle snapper. That being said, we find it strange that the G50 is a 5G device yet it does not support 4K video recording–after all, the Snapdragon 480’s ISP only supports up to Full HD video recording.
Powering the G50 is a 5000mAh battery with support for 15w charging. While it does support fast charging, you only get a 10w charger out of the box. other features include NFC, water repellent design, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Motorola G50 Price
The G50 is priced at 250 Euros(~Php 14.4k), though Motorola did not indicate if the pricing is for the 64GB or 128GB storage variant. Its pricing puts it in a strange spot, as a few thousand Pesos more can get you the Moto G 5G, which has a Full HD+ display, a better Snapdragon 750G processor, and an ultra-wide-angle camera.
