Motorola’s next Moto G Stylus could bring modest spec upgrades

Motorola is reportedly gearing up to launch a new Moto G Stylus. The original device made its debut in the U.S. at the beginning of the year and was later rebranded for Europe. It was a strong release that featured decent specs at an affordable price.

Evan Blass has shared what are alleged to be specs for the new Moto G Stylus (2021), which appears to be codenamed minsk, and a render of the device. The upcoming device will feature a 6.81-inch display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080, along with a small hole-punch in the upper left corner. That’s a step up in size over the current Moto G Stylus.

Other alleged specs for the new Moto G Stylus (2021) include a Snapdragon 675 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of storage. It’s also said to feature a quad-camera system, highlighted by a 48MP main lens; the front-facing camera will be 16MP. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor will be used for security, while the device is rumored to launch with Android 10 and again feature a stylus pen.

Finally, the handset will reportedly come equipped with a 4000mAh battery, so you’ll be able to watch plenty of movies and listen to plenty of music. Crucially, there will be no NFC, so you won’t be able to take advantage of making digital payments at physical retail stores, among other conveniences.

For the most part, the new Moto G Stylus (2021) looks to be a relatively modest upgrade. The original went on sale at the beginning of this year in the U.S., and while our tipster didn’t say when the new Moto G Stylus (2021) would be released, we expect a similar timeframe early next year.
