Ahrensmeier isn’t a prolific leaker, but what their track record lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quantity – plus, these pictures confirm an old point of confusion. Just before the Moto G Stylus (2021) launched, a popular leaker unveiled pictures of the phone which turned out to be inaccurate – but these newer images look identical to those, suggesting the early leak was actually of this 5G phone.
Motorola Moto g Stylus 5G (US only), it’s the one @OnLeaks released in January and everyone was confused. Has decent Storage (256 GB) pic.twitter.com/LCaZ15vtwMMay 30, 2021
In the images, we can see a square camera bump, a rear fingerprint sensor and a front-facing camera situated to the top-left of the screen in a cut-out. The camera and fingerprint scanner are both different compared to the non-5G model.
According to Ahrensmeier, this phone will be exclusive to the US – that makes sense, as the standard Moto G Stylus was too. We don’t yet have any details of a release date.
If the leaked Moto G Stylus 5G has next-gen connectivity, a stylus and a low price (as the Moto G branding implies), it could be a strong rival for the Samsung Galaxy Note 21, a phone that’ll hit those first two points but possibly lack in the latter.
Saying that, we’ve heard strong rumors the Samsung S Pen smartphone has been canceled in 2021, so stylus-lovers might have little choice for their next smartphone.
