Moto G8 also possesses features like the portrait mode, smart composition, and the night mode for brilliant photos that are on par with other professional cameras in the market.
Design and Display
Moto G8 will have a full HD+ display with a resolution of 2280×1080 and an aspect ratio of 19:9. While there is nothing official about the screen size, G8 is likely to sport a 6.30-inch IPS LCD. There have also been speculations about a notch-free design with thin side bezels and a small chin displaying a Motorola logo. Overall, Moto G8 has a modern and sleek design. It is expected to be the thinnest of all the G-series phones, making it easy to use with one hand or fit into the tiniest pockets. G8 is also water-resistant and can easily handle minor spills or raindrops without causing any damage to the phone.
