Motorola announced two new flip phones, but that’s not all. A budget phone arrived with them too, the Motorola Moto G85. The thing is, this phone did not launch in the US with the Motorola Razr+ 2024 and Razr 2024.

The Motorola Moto G85 is now official in both Europe and China

The Moto G85 launched in Europe and China. It’s called the Moto S50 Neo in China, actually. This is a budget smartphone, and chances are it won’t be making its way to the US… but it remains to be seen.

The Moto G85 does look really nice, however. It has a curved display with thin bezels and a centered display camera hole. Two vertically-aligned cameras are included on the back. They are located in the top-left corner, and that camera island does blend really well with the rest of the phone’s back.

This smartphone includes a 6.7-inch fullHD+ (2400 x 1080) pOLED display. That is a 10-bit display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. It offers up to 1,600 nits of brightness.

Qualcomm’s mid-range chip fuels the device

The Snapdragon 6s Gen 3 fuels this phone, Qualcomm’s 6nm chip. Motorola included 12GB of RAM here, and 512GB of internal storage. In China, more RAM and storage options are available. Do note that the storage is also expandable.

A 5,000mAh battery sits inside the device, and 30W fast charging is supported. Android 14 comes pre-installed, with Motorola’s skin, while there are two nano SIM card slots included and a separate microSD card slot.

A 50-megapixel main camera (Sony’s IMX882 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, OIS) sits on the back, along with an 8-megapixel ultrawide unit (f/2.2 aperture, macro, depth camera). A single 32-megapixel unit (f/2.45 aperture) sits on the front.

It is water resistant, and has an in-display fingerprint scanner

The phone does include a set of stereo speakers, and Dolby Atmos is also supported. Two microphones are included on the phone, while the device is IP54 rated for water resistance. Bluetooth 5.1 is also supported, while the phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner too.

The Moto G85 measures 161.91 x 74.06 x 7.59mm, while it weighs 171 grams. There’s vegan leather on its back, by the way, but one additional variant will be available too, probably with glass on the back, we’re still not sure.
