The specifications of the upcoming Moto G50 5G smartphone have been leaked. The leak, which was first reported by Pricebaba, says that the phone is codenamed Saipan. This is a different device from the one that was codenamed Ibiza, seen earlier, and which was launched in European markets in March. The key specs are pretty much the same on this device though, and the Moto G50 5G seems to be a pretty average smartphone, meant for budget price ranges. Renders of the smartphone had also been leaked by Ex-Engadget editor, Evan Blass, who is known as @evleaks on Twitter.

Moto G50 5G specs and features
Let’s get to the specifications of the device. The Moto G50 5G has a 6.5-inch display with 1600×720 pixel HD+ resolution. It’s powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset and will have 4GB of RAM inside. While Pricebaba did not talk about what the device’s price is at the moment, these specs alone would suggest that the Moto G50 5G will be priced at under Rs. 10,000. Devices with HD+ displays are almost unheard of in the mid-range and more expensive price ranges today.
On the other hand, the company has also placed a 13 megapixel camera on the front of the device, while the back has a 48 megapixel triple camera unit on the back. The Moto G50 5G also has a fingerprint scanner on the side of the device, and has a 3.5mm audio jack, which is another feature that has mostly disappeared from more expensive devices nowadays.
Moving on, the battery size of the device isn’t known right now, but Pricebaba guessed that it would have a 4700 mAh battery. This is based on a Motorola phone with the model number XT2149-1, which was seen on Brazil’s Anatel certification website recently.
If you haven’t followed the Moto G50 5G’s European version closely, here’s how that one differs from this device.
The Moto G50 5G, which is codenamed Ibiza, has a 6.5 inch HD+ 90Hz display and a 13 megapixel front camera. It also has 48 megapixel, 5 megapixel and 2 megapixel cameras on the back. However, that phone runs on the Snapdragon 480 chipset from Qualcomm, which is the key difference between the two devices. That phone also has 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage like this one, though there’s a 128GB storage variant of the device too. The side-mounted fingerprint scanner and 5000 mAh battery remain, and that phone also supports 15W fast charging.
