Last week, a report published by XDA Developers shed some light on the hardware specifications of an upcoming Moto G smartphone with the model name of XT2019-1 or XT2019-2. The device has now been certified by the FCC, revealing a few more details.

Motorola XT2019-1 FCC Listing Confirms 4000mAh Battery

The Motorola XT2019-1 FCC listing reveals the phone will measure 158.35 x 75.83mm and have a 163.39mm display diagonal. While the folks at XDA Developers had claimed the smartphone may come with a 6.30-inch display, the FCC listing suggests the phone will actually have a 6.43-inch panel, likely offering Full HD+ resolution.

In addition to the phone’s dimensions and display size, the FCC listing also confirms the upcoming Moto G phone will have a 4000mAh capacity battery inside. Similar to the Moto G7 series, we expect the Moto G8 or G8 Plus to come with the company’s TurboPower fast charging technology.

The Moto G8 or G8 Plus I tipped to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 octa-core processor, a decent upgrade over the Snapdragon 632 chipset that runs inside the Moto G7 as well as the Snapdragon 636 chipset powering the Moto G7 Plus. While both the Snapdragon 632 and 636 chipsets are manufactured on a 14nm FinFET process, the Snapdragon 665 is built on a more efficient 11nm FinFET process.

In the memory department, Moto G8 or G8 Plus is expected to be available in 4GB RAM+ 64GB storage, 4GB RAM + 128GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variants. Unlike previous Moto G series phones, the upcoming phone is tipped to use UFS 2.1 storage. In the camera department, it is expected to have an impressive triple-camera setup on the back with a 48MP primary sensor, 16MP ultra-wide-angle snapper, and a 5MP depth sensor. For selfies, the smartphone will feature a 25MP front-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
