Moto G8 Power Lite with 5000mAh battery, triple cameras launches in India for ₹8,999

2019 was the year of rejuvenation for Motorola. The company finally caught up with other smartphone brands in terms of the frequency of launches, dishing out three new phones under the Motorola One series, reviving the iconic Motorola Razr, and diversifying the G series. Besides the regular monikers – such as Plus and Play variants – in the G Series, Motorola announced the Moto G Power and the Moto G Stylus – intriguingly without the numeric identifier. Adding to these, the company also launched the Moto G8 Power Lite for Europe and LATAM regions last month and is now bringing the smartphone to India.


The “Power Lite” variant is a new addition in Motorola’s G Series and it sits between the Moto G8 Play and the Moto e6s global variants. The Moto G8 Power Lite uses a single unibody shell made of polycarbonate with a presumably matte finish. The phone comes in two colors – Arctic Blue and Royal Blue. The display on the front measures 6.5-inches and has an HD+ resolution.

The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 chipset and comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard. The storage can be expanded using the dedicated microSD card slot on the device.

For photography, the Moto G8 Power Lite features a 16MP primary camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera. The front notch features an 8MP selfie camera.

Software-wise, the G8 Power Lite runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box with a clean and near-stock experience. In addition, the phone supports Moto gestures for opening the Camera app and flashlight.

Pricing & Availability

Motorola has set a price of ₹8,999 (~$120) for the smartphone. It will be available in India starting May 29th and sold exclusively via Flipkart.
