The Moto G Stylus 2023 will be available in a 4G variant, after all. While leaks so far have only talked about the 5G model, which has already picked up the FCC certification, a 4G model has now popped up on the benchmarking platform Geekbench. The listing revealed a few things about the upcoming Motorola smartphone.
Motorola launched the Moto G Stylus 2022 in February last year. The handset disappointingly came with Android 11 onboard when Android 12 had already been around for a good few months. The company isn’t repeating that mistake this year. The 2023 edition of the stylus-equipped phone will run Android 13 out of the box, Geekbench reveals.
The Lenovo-owned smartphone brand isn’t upgrading the processor, though. The Moto G Stylus 2023 seems to be getting the same MediaTek Helio G88 chipset as last year’s model. While the benchmark listing doesn’t explicitly name it, the model number MT6769V/CZ tells the story. This chipset has two ARM Cortex-A75 CPU cores clocked at 2.0GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.80GHz. It comes with an integrated Mali G52 GPU.
The Geekbench entry further reveals that the Moto G Stylus 2023 will feature 4GB of RAM. But it’s worth noting here that Motorola may release the device in multiple RAM options. We should get up to 6GB of RAM at least, if not 8GB. Storage options may include 64GB and 128GB, with a dedicated microSD card slot letting you add to that externally.
This is the very first notable sighting of this phone anywhere on the internet. However, we should soon hear more about it as Motorola gears up for its launch. Both the 4G and 5G models of the Moto G Stylus 2023 may arrive in April.
The 2023 Moto G Stylus lineup will get a design overhaul
As said earlier, leaks about the Moto G Stylus 5G 2023 have been coming for some time now. We have already seen the handset in unofficial renders. Motorola is making a couple of changes to its design this year.
Firstly, the rounded rectangular vertical camera array is making way for a squircle housing. Also, we have one less camera inside it this year, though the company is retaining a 50MP primary shooter.
While the render may be showing the 5G model, we don’t expect any fundamental design difference between the two cellular variants of the Moto G Stylus 2023. We will keep you posted with all the latest information about these phones.
