Motorola Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-2)


Cosmic Blue

The Motorola Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-2) is a good Android phone with 2Ghz Octa-Core processor that allows run games and heavy applications. An advantage of the Motorola Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-2) is the possibility of using two mobile carriers, a Dual-SIM device with two SIM card slots. Good connectivity of this device includes Bluetooth 5.0 version A2DP/LE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac + MIMO (2.4Ghz, 5Ghz), but it lacks NFC connection. Including the battery, the Motorola Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-2) phone has 188 grams and it’s a very thin device, only 0.41 lbs

The Moto G8 Plus (XT2019-2) has an unusual twist on the above general formula too. Like its brother from another lineup, the Moto One Action, the Moto G8 Plus has a dedicated ultra wide-angle video camera that’s rotated 90 degrees – so you can hold the phone in portrait, and still capture correctly oriented video.

Spicing up the spec sheet is the presence of stereo speakers – a welcome sight in this segment, and a feature carried over from the G7 Plus. Similarly to this predecessor, the G8 Plus comes in a single 4GB/64GB trim level, though it does one-up the G7 Plus with a newer and more efficient Snapdragon 665 chip. It has lost the dedicated microSD slot, however – if you get the dual SIM version, that is.

Motorola Moto G8 Plus Dual SIM LTE-A LATAM XT2019-2 – Frequency Bands and Network Compatibility

Display: We’re confident the Moto G8 (Plus?) will have an FHD+ display with a resolution of 2280×1080 (19:9), but we’re less sure of the phone’s display size. We’re told it’s 6.30-inches, but that might not be accurate.
RAM and Storage: According to the information we’ve obtained, Motorola will offer this new Moto G8 device in a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant, though there could also be a 4+128GB and 6+64GB and 6+128GB variants.
Cameras: The camera hardware is the most intriguing aspect of this new Moto G smartphone. Motorola has typically been modest with the hardware it packs in its mid-range phones, but we’ve seen how the company has evolved in the face of growing competition in the mid-range segment (especially in markets like India.) Currently, we believe the primary camera on the Moto G8 (or Moto G8 Plus) is a 48MP f/1.79 camera (with 4-in-1 pixel binning for a default output resolution of 12MP), while the secondary camera is a 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle camera (94° horizontally) and the tertiary camera is a 5MP f/2.2 camera likely for depth-sensing. On the front, we expect the phone to have a 25MP f/2.0 camera.
Software: The phone runs Android 9 Pie and is not part of the Android One program. Thus, the phone will have Motorola’s UI customizations on top, in addition to a handful of apps like Moto Actions, Moto Display, and more.
Connectivity: We’ve identified several models of this Moto G8 series device. A few models have NFC, a few models have a dual SIM card slot, a few support both NFC and dual SIM, and a few support neither.
