Motorola teases new smartphone with AI features


With smartphone hardware peaking, smartphone makers need to find new ways to impress. For 2024, we imagine that it will come in the form of AI. It looks like Motorola is getting ready to hop on the AI bandwagon with its next smartphone, according to a recent teaser on Weibo for the Moto X50 Ultra.


Not much is known about the handset right now, but given how it mentions AI, we imagine that it will come with some AI software features. Motorola wouldn't be the first to bring AI to smartphones. We have Google to thank for that. Samsung's new Galaxy S24 series launched this year with its Galaxy AI platform.


Apple has also confirmed that they are working on AI features that should debut in iOS 18 and the iPhone 16. It will be interesting to see what kind of AI features Motorola could include in the smartphone. More importantly, how it will fare against existing AI or if it will end up being a mess.


That being said, keep in mind that the Moto X-series could be exclusive to China. It might debut in global markets under a different name, so we'll just have to wait and see. Motorola has also teased a possible launch date for the phone. The company has included the F1 China Grand Prix hashtag. The event takes place on the 21st of April, so maybe we'll have more details then.

Check out these leaked Renders of the budget 2024 Moto G Power 5G!


Motorola used to compete with the big guns back in the early days of Android. These days, the company is pushing out mid-rangers and budget handsets to great success. If you're looking for a new phone that won't break the bank, then you might want to check out these leaked renders of the 2024 Moto G Power 5G.


The Moto G Power 5G is a budget smartphone series from Motorola. The company pretty much refreshes them on an yearly basis, so seeing a refresh this year doesn't come as a surprise. Thanks to the folks at MsPowerUser, leaked renders of the upcoming handset have made their way online.

According to the post, the handset will be offered in a "Orchid Tint" and "Outer Space" finish. There are some obvious design changes in the 2024 over the 2023 model. This applies to the camera bump which now has a matte-like finish similar to the back of the phone. The 2023 model was kind of shiny.


In terms of specs, the handset will apparently come with a 6.7-inch 1200×1600 display. It is also rumored to support 30W charging. There is no mention about the chipset and battery size of the phone, but presumably it will build off its 2023 precessor. There's also no word on pricing yet, but hopefully Motorola will keep the same $299 price tag.

Motorola's newest entry-level phones come with smooth screens, large batteries, and great prices


It's only been a week since Motorola made its first product announcement of 2024, and to the surprise of absolutely nobody the least bit familiar with how the Lenovo-owned brand conducts its business for several years now, another two new budget-friendly Moto handsets are now official.


The Moto G04 and Moto G24 are also unsurprisingly extremely similar to the third-gen Moto G Play unveiled last week, as well as the G14 and G34 models that broke cover in the latter stages of 2023. What makes these puppies highly appealing to the masses, of course, are their crazy low price points combined with some decidedly respectable features (especially as far as the G24 is concerned) and what Motorola is advertising as "premium" designs and build materials.

Because it's probably made entirely from plastic, we're not sure we really agree with Motorola's characterization of the Moto G24's build quality as "premium." But the 6.6-inch handset does unquestionably exceed our expectations (just as its manufacturer claims) when it comes to camera capabilities, screen technology, battery capacity, and charging speeds.


That's all with the G24's €129 recommended price point for select European markets taken into consideration, of course, which we could try to convert into US dollars but there's not really any reason to do that. The chances of ever seeing this thing commercially (and officially) released stateside are pretty much nonexistent, even though Motorola is ready to confirm later availability across Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific at this time.


A 50MP primary rear-facing camera equipped with fancy Quad Pixel technology is quite possibly the most impressive spec of the ultra-affordable (4G LTE-only) Moto G24, which also supports 90Hz display refresh rate capabilities while packing octa-core MediaTek Helio G85 processing power and a hefty 5,000mAh battery with 15W charging speeds.


Don't get us wrong, this is most definitely not the best mid-range phone money can buy in (early) 2024, but that's mainly because it's not really a mid-end affair to start with. Instead, the €129 price tag firmly puts the Moto G24 in the low-end category, and for a low-end smartphone, that centered hole punch certainly qualifies as a "premium" design choice and (almost) everything else is remarkably advanced too.


You even get a secondary rear-facing shooter (albeit a not-very-great one with Macro Vision capabilities and a modest 2 megapixel count), as well as Dolby Atmos-powered stereo speakers for "immersive" sound, a not-too-bad 8MP selfie camera, and even pre-loaded Android 14 software.

Motorola's next mid-ranger will be seeing a global launch next month


Back in the day, Motorola used to compete with other handset makers when it came to flagship phones, but these days, save for its Razr lineup, the company seems to be pretty content churning out entry-level and mid-range handsets. It's not a bad thing since these phones usually command a higher profit margin, plus they are also incredible value for money.


That being said, if you are looking for a new mid-ranger, then Motorola's next smartphone might be one you'll want to keep an eye out for. This is according to a post on X by tipster Mukul Sharma who claims that Motorola's next mid-ranger, the Moto G84 5G, is expected to see a global launch as soon as September, which is next month.



According to the post, some of the features of the phone we can expect include 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a 120Hz pOLED display with 10-bit color, and it will also be offered in Viva Magenta, which is the 2023 Pantone color of the year. What's interesting is that Motorola is giving the phone a vegan leather finish, a material that we haven't really seen in many phones these days.


We're not sure how much the handset could cost, but like we said, Motorola's mid-rangers have been known to be good value for money and we expect that the Moto G84 5G should follow suit. If the September launch date is accurate, we should have the official details soon enough.

Motorola's Defy Satellite Link brings satellite connectivity to your smartphone


As smartphone technology has peaked, smartphone makers need to come up with new and interesting offerings to tempt customers. In Apple's case, they introduced satellite connectivity with the iPhone 14, giving users a way of reaching out for help in the event they do not have cellular coverage.


That being said, not all smartphone makers have adopted the technology yet, but they might not have to. Bullitt has announced that the Motorola Defy Satellite Link is now available for purchase in the US. The device was revealed early this year at MWC 2023, but now it looks like it will be available for those in the US who might want to get their hands on it.


For those who are unfamiliar, the Motorola Defy Satellite is a little gadget that can be connected to existing smartphones, giving them satellite coverage as well. This means that if your current phone does not have the feature, then buying this device will enable it. The Defy Satellite is powered by MediaTek's MT6825 chipset and supports features like two-way satellite messaging over non-terrestrial networks, as well as connection to low Earth orbit satellites and geostationary ones.


The Motorola Defy Satellite is being sold for $150 which includes a year's subscription to the Essentials Messaging service for up to 30 two-way messages per month and SOS Assist. It will also be compatible with both iOS and Android devices, so everyone will be able to make use of it.
