The phone comes with mid-range specs that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage (yes, it has a microSD card slot too) and a 6.4-inch HD+ display that has a punch-hole notch hiding an 8MP selfie camera. Motorola has also included the same massive 4,00mAh battery found in the G8 Plus which I found offered true all-day battery life on that phone.
Motorola hasn’t forgotten cameras on the Moto G8, with a 16MP main sensor paired with a 2MP sensor with macro lens and an 8MP sensor with 118° ultra-wide angle lens on the rear. Motorola says you’ll get up to 4x more in the shot with their ultra-wide lens and you’ll get up to 5x closer with the Macro lens making the camera setup on this phone a pretty versatile system – but obviously we’ll have to test it out when it arrives on our shores.

Motorola has confirmed the phone will be coming to Australia – as well as the Europe, Latin America and Asian markets – in the coming weeks , although you can buy one today in Brazil. There’s two colour options coming, Blue and White, but we’ll have to wait for Motorola Australia to confirm local availability.
