Moto G31 lands in India with MediaTek Helio G85, a 50MP main camera and a 5,000mAh battery

A couple of weeks ago, Motorola unveiled a slew of budget-friendly phones under its Moto G series in Europe. Today the Lenovo-owned company is bringing one of them to India: the Moto G31. The new model succeeds the Moto G30 that came out earlier this year though it doesn’t have a lot to offer in terms of upgrades and improvements beyond a new camera sensor and a more vibrant screen.

The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, paired with either 4GB or 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. As for the optics, the Moto G31 comes with a triple camera setup on the back — a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 2MP macro lens — and a 13MP shooter on the front.

The phone packs a 5,000mAh battery, which is the same as the Moto G30. However, the charging speed has been reduced to just 10W from 20W, which is quite disappointing.
