The new Moto G Stylus gets a 5G upgrade for just $400, available June 14

The Moto G Stylus gets a much-needed 5G upgrade.

What you need to know

  • Motorola launches the new Moto G Stylus 5G.
  • The latest Moto smartphone features a large 5,000mAh battery, 48MP camera, and built-in stylus.
  • The Moto G Stylus 5G will be available on June 14 for $400.

Motorola has announced the 5G variant of the Moto G Stylus (2021) that launched at the top of the year. The newer Moto G Stylus 5G comes with much of the same hardware chops as its sibling but with the added benefit of a faster 5G connection.

Like the Moto G Stylus (2021), the newer model features a 6.8-inch FHD+ Max Vision display with a 16MP hole-punch selfie camera. There's also 4GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage, but interested parties also have the option to purchase the device with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The quad-camera system on the rear features similar specs as its sibling, with a 48MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide, macro, and depth sensors. The layout of the cameras has changed and is more akin to the Moto One 5G or 5G Ace. Other similarities with the earlier Moto G Stylus include the built-in stylus, the unfortunate lack of NFC, and the fortunate inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack for music lovers. There's also no IP rating, just water-repellant coating,

The Moto G Stylus 5G also gets a bump in battery life with a fairly impressive 5,000mAh battery to keep the lights on. Motorola claims it will keep things going for up to two days, which is fortunate since the device only supports 10W charging, a far cry from even some of the best cheap Android phones.

Running the show is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 to keep costs down. Aside from the chipset, battery capacity, and some design changes, the Moto G Stylus 5G is largely the same as its sibling, although now with a faster 5G connection.

The Moto G Stylus 5G retails for $400 and will be available on most major carriers sans Verizon on June 14.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4.
