Motorola has announced the Moto G Stylus 5G, an update of the already-existing Moto G Stylus that was launched back in January 2021. This new 5G-compatible update continues to feature a built-in stylus for users to easily take notes, draw or edit images. 

However, the Moto G Stylus 5G also has some interesting updates too. The new Snapdragon 480 5G processor will ensure zippier internet speeds, while the increased 6GB of RAM and doubled 256GB internal storage will make the general user experience even better.

Meanwhile, as reported by T3 (opens in new tab), the Moto G Stylus 5G has some small camera updates as well. The original Moto G Stylus featured a quad camera with a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. Most of this remains the same, but the macro camera has been upgraded from 2MP to 5MP. This means users should be able to enjoy higher quality close-up macro images from their handset. 

The previous Moto G Stylus featured a fingerprint unlock function. However, this has now been moved from the side of the handset to the back. Motorola has also added a Face Unlock function as well. 

The Moto G Stylus 5G will retail at $399.99 unlocked (£283 / AU$517). It will be available across multiple networks in the US, included AT&T and T-Mobile. However, there currently aren't any plans to bring this camera phone to Europe or Australia. 

The Moto G Stylus 5G will run Android 11 and looks to be a great mid-range camera phone that many users will be happy with. Its bumper list of features and affordable pricing will certainly make it a tempting proposition to many.
