Internals and Storage

The Moto G50 is powered by the Snapdragon 480 5G chipset. It performs better than the Snapdragon 460 SoC found in G10 thanks to the pair of Cortex-A76 derived cores that replace four A73-based cores. Moreover, the GPU is also better. In terms of storage, it offers 4 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB onboard storage.

The Moto G100 features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 topped with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS 3.1 storage.

Both handsets run Android 11 with a new user interface called MY UI.

Cameras

Moto G50 is equipped with a triple sensor camera on the back with a 48 MP main sensor, a 5MP macro cam and a 2MP depth sensor. The company has ditched the ultrawide camera. For selfies, it has a 13 MP single sensor shooter.

The G100, on the other hand, features a quad sensor camera set up with a larger 1/2″ 64 MP main sensor from Sony, a 16 MP ultra-wide sensor with phase-detect autofocus, a 2MP fixed-focus depth sensor, and a ToF sensor. The main sensor also comes with support for 6K video capture at 30fps. The selfie cameras are a 16MP sensor and an 8MP 100° ultrawide angle camera.
