Moto G 5G, Power 5G Bring Spec Bumps and a Price Cut

From CNET: Motorola is dropping the price of its value-focused Moto G phone line. The new Moto G 5G, revealed Tuesday, starts at $200 and gets a higher-refresh-rate display than its predecessor. It arrives alongside a refreshed Moto G Power 5G, which sticks to the same $300 price of last year's model while getting its own spec bump.

The pair of phones arrive come last month's Moto G Play for 2024, which also received its its own price drop from $170 in 2023 to $150 for this year's model.

The Moto G 5G's new screen is a 6.6-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which supports Dolby Atmos audio. The phone comes with a 50-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera and it's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 chip. That processor isn't the newest Qualcomm offers for this price range -- there's a Snapdragon 4 Gen 2 -- but it should be optimized for photography and the phone's display.

Unfortunately that 50-megapixel main lens is paired with a 2-megapixel macro camera, and we're yet to see such a lens offer much help to photographers. The phone also has 128GB of storage, a 5,000-mAh battery and 18-watt fast charging.
