Motorola launched a Moto G-series phone with an in-built pen for the first time earlier in 2020. Now, it seems its successor will have more real estate for its special feature. It may also have a Snapdragon 675 processor, a quad rear camera and software based on Android 10 out of the box.

Motorola released the Moto G Stylus along with the G Power to the US market in early 2020. This combination of mid-range specs and a Galaxy Note-style pen must have proven popular, as the OEM is allegedly launching its successor in 2021.

According to the famous leaker Evan Blass, this next-gen G Stylus will still have an FHD+ display, although it will grow compared to that of its inaugural generation to 6.81 inches. It will also get a Snapdragon 675 SoC, whereas the 2020 model has the 665. The putative new Moto G variant’s fingerprint sensor may integrate into its power button as opposed to the rear panel as in this year’s version.

It is also now projected to have 48+8+2+2MP rear Then again, this “Moto G Stylus 2021” (or “Motorola XT2115“) may have the same battery capacity as last time (4000mAh). Its series may also persist in omitting NFC and having 4GB RAM/128GB configurations. There are no hints as to its price as yet; for reference, the G Stylus 2020 started at US$300.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general.
This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
