Motorola has proven itself to be a giant phonemaker for the mid-tier segment of the market. The company is continuing to be a frontrunner with the unveiling of the new G Stylus, G Power and G Play 2021 models. The three new G-series mid-rangers are packed with several exciting features, which the company aims will retain its share of the market and even make inroads into other areas. All three models can be ordered today, but only the G Play 2021 is ready to ship, with the G Stylus 2021 and G Power 2021 coming on board in a week’s time.
The Moto G Stylus 2021 has a 6.8-inch 1080p display, which holds the record as the largest G-series model yet, comes with a “push-pen” stylus, having a clickable top that makes it possible to pull it out of its sheath inside the phone. The stylus can be used to sketch stuff or highlight text and quickly copy it to another app. A Snapdragon 678 which runs on Android 10 provides seamless operation of the Stylus-specific custom software like the Moto Note app.
The phone has 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage (with a microSD slot option). The battery has 4,000 mAh capacity and supports only the standard 10W for charging.

The camera has a 48MP main sensor together with an 8MP ultrawide (118°), 2MP macro and an additional 2MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is a 16MP module having pixel binning support. The main camera is capable of recording 4K 30 fps videos, while the ultra wide and selfie cameras can shoot hyperlapses.
The build of the G Stylus is plastic and it is designed for some waterproof capabilities, although no IP rating was provided.
The Moto G Stylus 2021 sells at $300 and can be ordered right away, although the first units will be shipped from January 13.
The Moto G Power 2021 has a larger capacity battery but a smaller screen when matched with the G Stylus, in addition to the absence of the stylus. The battery is 5,000 mAh and can last up to 3 days on a single full charge, which is quite higher than that of the Stylus, which can only last two days.
It comes with a 10W charger although it has support for 15W charging, with the right power charging device. It is powered by Snapdragon 662 chipset, and has options of 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB storage (with a free microSD slot for memory expansion). With a lower screen resolution (720P), it has a main 48MP camera, limited to 1080p resolution for videos. Also, the ultrawide module is absent, while the two 2MP modules are retained.
The Moto G Play 2021 comes in the rear as the least expensive of the three models at $170 and sales and shipment begin today. It is a 6.5” IPS LCD with 720p resolution with Android 10 operating system, running on a Snapdragon 460 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage (and a microSD slot).
The battery is at par with the G Power at 5,000 mAh and 10W USB-C charging. All three G-series phones have 3.5 mm jacks and they all lack NFC.

The camera features a 13MP main camera (1080p/60fps video), a 2MP depth sensor and a 5MP selfie camera. The selfie camera is in a notch instead of a punch hole as the other three, underlining that this is the low budget edition.
