Smartphone digital pens have long gone out of style, only a few customers ask for them. Motorola wants to score points in the middle class.
Motorola has surprisingly unveiled the Moto G Pro in Germany. It’s a slightly outdated mid-range Android smartphone as the processor has been around for a few years. In this case, Pro probably means the stylus used to enter data on the screen. Of course, only as an alternative to the usual touch input. The new smartphone with Android One on board costs almost 330 euros, but it is surprisingly boring.
The stylus holder is a rarity in the middle class
- 6.4 inch LC display, FHD +, stylus
- 4000 mAh battery, 15 watt fast charge, USB-C
- Snapdragon 665 processor, 4GB RAM
- 128GB memory, expandable via microSD
- 48 MP + ultra wide angle, macro, ToF main camera
- Stereo speakers, jack connection
- Wlan 5, Bluetooth 5, NFC (Google Pay), LTE, dual SIM
- 158.6 x 75.8 x 9.2mm, 192g

Some special features are somehow missing, aside from the partially outdated hardware and its relatively high price. Only the integrated stylus speaks for the device, which Motorola describes as follows:
“With the pen, you can write, draw, design and edit with wonderful precision. Have a brilliant idea? Just remove the built-in stylus and your favorite apps will open. ”
