Motorola is about to begin marketing two new mid-range, 5G-capable smartphones, the Moto g50 and Moto g100. They are inserted in the manufacturer’s range between the Moto e (entry level) and the Moto Edge (top of the range), which we tested last summer.

Moto g50: 5G and 90 Hz LCD screen without breaking the bank

Available in gray and blue, from mid April at a very attractive price of € 249, the Moto g50 has everything you need for basic everyday use. It is mainly distinguished by its 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen, which supports a definition of 1600 x 720 pixels and – above all – a refresh rate of 90 Hz, in order to smooth the scrolling of the image when browsing through news feeds or social networks.

The Moto g50 also has the advantage of carrying a 5,000 mAh battery, which is supposed to provide two days of autonomy. The latter supports a load of 15 watts. The rest of the Moto g50 gear includes a Snapdragon 480 processor, 4 GB of memory, 64 GB of storage (expandable by adding a microSD card), a headphone jack and a back-mounted fingerprint reader.

For photos, the main sensor has a definition of 48 megapixels. It is completed by a macro sensor (5 megapixels) and a depth sensor (for the Bokeh effect in Portrait mode) of 2 megapixels. Selfies are captured in 13 megapixels.

Moto g100: dual front sensor, docking station and Snapdragon 870 on the program

A little more expensive, the Moto g100 targets a slightly more demanding audience. It will be available in gray, white and blue for € 549, also from mid April.

Thus, the Moto g100 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, with 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage space (always expandable via a microSD card). The smartphone also incorporates a 5000 mAh battery, but a larger screen (6.7 inches) and more precise (2520 x 1080 pixels) than the Moto g50. And it still offers good display fluidity, thanks to a frequency of 90 Hz.

The Moto g100 has three rear photo sensors: 64 megapixels for the main sensor, a 16 megapixel wide angle and a depth sensor (2 megapixels). On the other hand, on the front of the smartphone, there are now two sensors since an 8-megapixel wide angle completes the main 16-megapixel sensor. Convenient for group selfies!
