Images and basic specs of Moto G Power (2021) and Moto G Play (2021) leak

Peter, 04 January 2021

It’s only a few days into the new year, but Motorola already has several G-series models on the way. Let’s start with the Moto G Power (2021) as that requires some explanation. This is actually a variation of the Moto G10 Play, which leaked in November. It’s for the US market and has the model number XT-2117.

The phone can be seen as a “lite” version of the Moto G9 Power, which went official in November. It will use the same Snapdragon 662 chipset, but with less memory – there will be two versions, 3/32 GB and 4/64 GB. Also, the main camera will step down from 64 MP to 48 MP and the selfie camera resolution will be halved to 8 MP. The two 2 MP modules on the back remain unchanged.

More importantly, the battery will have only 4,850 mAh capacity. That’s on the small side for a phone with the Power badge. For comparison, the G9 Power has a 6,000 mAh battery. The Moto G Power (2021) should be out soon, it will be available in Blue (pictured above), Gray and Silver.

Next up is the Moto G Play (2021), a scaled back version of the Moto E7 Play. It uses the same Snapdragon 460 chipset, though with only 3/32 GB memory. The 5,000 mAh battery is the same as well.

However, the 48 MP main camera is replaced with a basic 13 MP module while the selfie cam gets a 5 MP sensor (down from 8 MP). And the 2 MP depth sensor may be replaced by a macro camera, if anyone cares. This phone has a model number XT-2093 and is code named “Guam”.
