Motorola's Moto G lineup has been creeping up in price and features for a while now, and last year, the company tried something different. Moto released two G phones in the United States (and some other regions), the G Power and G Stylus. The latter was equipped with a passive stylus, making it a competitor against the LG Stylo series, and now Motorola is working on a super-sized sequel.
Motorola has announced its list of smartphones that will receive the Android 11 upgrade presumably starting as soon as tomorrow but, more practically, throughout 2021. There will be pitfalls along the way as we find out which devices are gasping their last breaths and the technicalities getting in the way of others.
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.
