What you need to know
- Motorola's upcoming Galaxy Note 10 Lite rival will be called the Moto G Stylus.
- Hands-on images of the phone were also leaked earlier this week.
- Under its hood is a Snapdragon 665 paired with 4GB of RAM and a mammoth 5,000mAh battery.
Earlier in the week, and thanks to Evan Blass, we learned that Motorola was planning to launch its first stylus-equipped phone since the Windows Mobile era. And it's thanks to him, again, that we now know what the phone — or possibly series of phones — will be called:
As has already been sporadically reported, this will indeed come to market as the Moto G Stylus (and NOT, ahem, the Motorola Edge+).
This also confirms the stylus-bearing phone is not the flagship that Motorola is reportedly also readying for launch this year. That becomes even more evident once we consider the purported specs of the Moto G Stylus, which 9to5Google reports include a Snapdragon 665, 4GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery.
Moreover, over the past couple of days, we've even gotten a much better look at the phone, thanks to hands-on images of what is supposedly the Moto G Stylus sent to Mexican publication Xataka:
If you squint a little at the bottom right, you can see the stylus hanging out from the phone, confirming that the phone will, indeed, include housing for the pen. Whether or not it's an active stylus is unclear at the moment.
We'll likely hear more about the phone — and the Snapdragon 865-powered Motorola flagship — at MWC next month.
