90Hz refresh rate and Mediatek Dimensity 700 are the two main features of the phone
The Motorola G50 5G has landed in Australia. It has the codename “Saipan” and boasts the Mediatek Dimensity 700 as well a 90Hz HD+ IPS LCD screen.
It has the same appearance as the Motorola G50 that launched last March but replaces the Snapdragon 480 SoC of that phone to a Mediatek Dimensity 700 one. These two chipsets offer neck-and-neck performance.
The phone has 4GB RAM and 128GB storage by default configuration. It has similar specs as the previous G50. It comes with a 5000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. For the cameras, there’s a triple camera setup. The main sensor is 48mp main and two 2mp depth and macro cameras, which are just gimmicks. The front camera is 13mp housed on top of a getting-outdated waterdrop notch.
Despite that the logo makes it a perfect phone to include a rear fingerprint, Motorola decided to break that tradition here, and added a side-mounted fingerprint sensor instead. A missed opportunity? Maybe, but we’ve seen multiple Motorola phones with that design style already.
In addition, the phone comes with USB-C, NFC and My UX based on Android 11. Price starts at AUD 399 (~Php 14.4K). As with other Motorola phones, the G50 5G may not come to the Philippines or may rename itself as a Lenovo device instead.
