Just back in January, Motorla refreshed the Moto G Stylus lineup with the launch of the Moto G Stylus (2021). Fast forward to now and we have the Moto G Stylus 5G, which includes many of the same features, with a few key differences. Beyond just 5G connectivity, Motorola also increased the amount of RAM and storage and has made adjustments to the design.

So if you happened to pick up the Moto G Stylus (2021) but are intrigued by the 5G version, does that mean you'll need to get a new case? Unfortunately, that answer is yes, and that's due to the differences in the dimensions, despite both of these phones sporting a 6.8-inch display. The new Moto G Stylus 5G is just slightly slimmer (0.3mm) than its predecessor while being just a smidge taller (0.4mm). This means that if you already have one of the best Moto G Stylus (2021) cases, then you'll still need to get a new case if you want the 5G Moto G Stylus.
