The Moto G Power (previously referred to as the “Moto G8 Power“) and Moto G Stylus have been popping up in headlines for a while now. Just yesterday, the Amazon listing revealed everything about the Moto G Power. The Moto G Stylus has been a little more mysterious, but we knew what to expect. Today, Motorola has officially announced both devices.

If you’ve been following the leaks, you know the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus look a lot alike. They share the same basic design, which features 6.4-inch FHD+ displays, left-aligned punch-hole, minimal bezels, plastic back covers, and matching camera modules. At a glance, the devices are essentially identical.
They have a lot in common in terms of specifications as well. Both the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus are rocking the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage. Some of the other shared specifications include USB-C 10W charging, headphone jacks, stereo speakers, fingerprint scanners, and Android 10.
Speaking of Android 10, Motorola has included some new software with these devices. Moto Gametime is a basic customization suite for adjusting notifications and power settings while gaming.
While the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus have a surprising amount in common, there are some key differences. First and foremost, the Moto G Stylus has, well, a stylus. The stylus is housed in the bottom edge and it’s very thin. This is not a fancy Bluetooth stylus like you can find in the latest Galaxy Note. It’s capacitive, which means no pressure sensitivity. Motorola has included some basic note-taking software to go with it. These are mid-range devices and you’re getting a mid-range stylus experience.
While the Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus appear to have the same camera setup, there are quite a few differences. Both have triple cameras, but they do very different things. The Power has a 16MP main camera, 2MP macro, and 8MP wide-angle. The Stylus has a 48MP main camera, 2MP macro, and 16MP “Action Cam.”
As you might expect by the name, the Moto G Power is packing a beefy 5,000 mAh battery. Motorola claims you can get up to 3 days of use before needing to plug in. The Moto G Stylus has a smaller, but still respectable, 4,000 mAh battery.
