Motorola Moto G84: Experience 120Hz OLED and a 50MP OIS Camera in Action
Motorola Unveils Moto G84: A Budget Marvel with Impressive Specs
After a week of eager anticipation and teasing, Motorola has officially launched its latest budget smartphone, the Moto G84, with its debut in India. While it may be powered by a chipset that’s been around for a bit, it still manages to deliver an enticing package of specifications that promise excellent value for the price.
Design and Display
The front of the Moto G84 boasts a striking 6.55-inch 10-bit OLED display, featuring a high refresh rate of 120 Hz and an impressive touch sampling rate of 240 Hz. Motorola promises a peak brightness of 1,300 nits for this screen, ensuring vibrant and immersive visuals.
In collaboration with Pantone, Motorola introduces the Moto G84 in a captivating Viva Magenta hue, complete with a faux leather panel for a touch of luxury. For those with different style preferences, there’s also the option of Marshmallow Blue, featuring a “vegan leather” finish (technically, a refined PVC coating), and a more understated Midnight Blue variant.
Internals and Software
Under the hood, the Moto G84 is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset, paired exclusively with a generous 12 GB of RAM and ample 256 GB of storage. Should you need even more storage space, you have the convenience of expanding it further using a microSD card.
Running on Android 13 out of the box, this device promises a seamless and up-to-date operating system experience. Motorola’s commitment extends to future updates, with a guarantee of receiving Android 14 and three years of security updates.
Turning our attention to the cameras, the Moto G84 features a rear camera setup that sets it apart from its predecessor, the Moto G82. The primary camera boasts an impressive 50 MP 1/1.5″ sensor, featuring a pixel size of 1.0µm and an f/1.88 lens. This camera comes equipped with Dual Pixel Autofocus (PDAF) and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for clear and steady shots. Right beside it, you’ll find an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera with a generous 118-degree field of view, although it lacks autofocus capabilities.
Both rear cameras support 4K video recording at 30 fps and incorporate Auto Night Vision technology to enhance photo quality in challenging low-light conditions. Positioned at the center of the display is a punch hole housing a capable 16 MP selfie camera, boasting an f/2.45 aperture for capturing stunning self-portraits.
Battery and Pricing
Powering the Moto G84 is a robust 5,000 mAh battery, offering the convenience of 30W fast charging. Motorola thoughtfully includes the required adapter in the retail package, ensuring you can quickly get back to gaming and using your device without long charging waits.
The Moto G84 is priced at an attractive $245 in India, making it a compelling choice for budget-conscious consumers.
