A mysterious unannounced Motorola smartphone bearing model number XT2029-1 has appeared on the FCC website. Going by the limited information revealed by the smartphone’s FCC listing, there is a possibility of it being a variant of the upcoming Moto G8.

Motorola XT2029-1 FCC Listing Reveals 6.14-inch Display, 3000mAh Battery

The Motorola XT2029-1 FCC listing tells us the smartphone will pack a 3000mAh capacity battery. Motorola’s Moto G7, which was announced in February this year, also packs an identical capacity battery. Apart from the battery capacity, the FCC documents also reveal the physical dimensions of the upcoming smartphone.

According to the listing, the device measures 145mm tall and is 69mm wide. The display diagonal is said to be 156mm, which means it will have a 6.14-inch sized display. For reference, the Moto G7 with a 6.2-inch display is 157mm tall and 75.3mm wide.

A report published by XDA Developers last month had claimed the Motorola G8 or G8 Plus could come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 octa-core processor and triple rear cameras. However, they claim the device will have a 6.3-inch display, so we cannot be completely sure if the Motorola XT2029-1 is indeed a Moto G8 variant.

The Motorola G8 (or G8 Plus) will reportedly be available in a total of four memory configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, 4GB RAM + 128GB storage, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. Unlike previous Moto G series phones, the Moto G8 is expected to use faster UFS 2.1 storage.

At the rear, the Moto G8 or G8 Plus is expected to have a 48MP primary camera with an f/1.79 aperture, paired with a 16MP wide-angle camera and a 5MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone will have a 25MP snapper on the front with an f/2.0 aperture. Unfortunately, though, there is still no word on when the Moto G8 series will make its formal debut.
