Months after launching the Moto G8 Plus, the company has introduced its younger sibling, the Moto G8.

For reference, the Moto G8 Plus is also powered by the Snapdragon 665 SoC. The handset comes in Pearl White and Neon Blue colours. 

Motorola has launched the Moto G8 in Brazil. It is listed on the official site with a price tag of BLR 1,299 (approx Rs 21,500).
