Motorola has already launched what feels like too many Moto G8 series phones with various names — there's the Moto G8 itself, G Power, G Power Lite, G Stylus, G8 Plus, and G8 Play. It was rumored that the standard Moto G8 would be rebranded as the Moto G Fast for the US, but it appears as though this will be a slightly different phone. Meanwhile, the Moto G Stylus that's already out in the States has been unveiled for Europe as the Moto G Pro. None of this is confusing at all.

There are a lot of fun 3D objects like skeletons, cars, planets, and animals you can view in Google Search, which might be perfect to pass the time while you and your kids are stuck at home. The underlying technology enabling this is called Google Play Services for AR, formerly known as ARCore. It's an engine that powers most games and applications on Android that use augmented reality effects. However, since the framework has to be tuned for each device, Google has to periodically update Play Services to support new phones and tablets. Since the last time we covered the library, 42 more devices have been added to the roster.
Motorola unveiled a few new G-series phones several weeks back, but there's another budget Moto phone on the horizon. The Moto G8 is official, and it shares a lot of features with the G Power and G Stylus. One thing it doesn't share is availability—this phone is only coming to Brazil, Europe, and a few other regions.
Following the rumors of a Motorola-made, as-yet-unnamed stylus phone, new renders of the still-untitled device have now leaked, together with a glimpse at the physically similar Moto G8 and G8 Power. Detailed specs for the last two phones have also leaked, showing precisely what you'll get in Moto's upcoming mid-range lineup.
