The Moto G Stylus has turned out to be Motorola’s best-selling Moto G device, and today the company is announcing a new generation of the device, the Moto G Stylus 5G. The Moto G Stylus 5G addresses much of the feedback that Moto G Stylus users have provided, which has resulted in everything from improved battery life to an improved stylus and the addition of 5G support.
To that effect, Motorola has refined the design of the stylus so that it’s now easier to pop out and slide back in. Specifically, they have raised the injection height so that it’s easier to clasp on. And now, when you pop out the stylus, the device will record where you last were when you removed it, which will help you to retrace your steps should you ever misplace the stylus.
The phone comes with a 48MP Quad camera with an Ultra-wide 118 degree lens, Macro vision with audio detect, a depth sensor, low light sensitivity, a 1.7 aperture, and a 16MP front-facing selfie camera which now has Night Vision. You can of course use the stylus to draw and add text on top of photos.
Motorola has also added some new video recording features in the form of Spot Color video and Dual Capture video, the latter allows you to record using the front and rear-facing cameras at the same time. On the display front, the phone packs in a 6.8 Full HD+ Max vision display. It’s also water repellent.
Motorola says that Moto G Stylus 5G ships with Android 11 and will definitely receive an Android 12 update, along with 2 years of security updates.
The updated Moto G Stylus now offers up to two days of battery life thanks to a larger 5,000 mAh battery. Under the hood, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 480 chipset alongside up to 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which can be expanded via a MicroSD card slot. Performance is expected to be on par with last year’s device, but with the addition of 5G support.
The Moto G Stylus 5G will be available to purchase starting June 14th. It will be available solely in “cosmic emerald” for $399 unlocked. It will also be available across all major carriers and many popular MVNOs.
