  • Motorola has announced the G60S.
  • The phone takes the fundamental design of the G60 and adds more cameras, faster charging, and a MediaTek chipset.
  • It does, however, compromise in a few key areas.

In April, Motorola launched the Moto G60 with a big battery, quick display, and the first 108MP camera in the G series. Now, the company has announced the Moto G60S sporting different hardware in key areas.

The Moto G60S shares the 6.8-inch FHD 120Hz LCD with its sibling. It also wears a similar shell, with a punch-hole camera up front and a headphone jack on its foot.

Delving beneath its skin, the changes start to appear. The G60S uses a MediaTek Helio G95 SoC as opposed to the G60’s Snapdragon 732G. You’re also getting 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

There are also more cameras on the G60S, but Motorola drops the 108MP used on the G60. Instead, the G60S is headlined by a 64MP main camera. There’s also an 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP depth sensor, and an additional 5MP macro lens in support. Up front, the 32MP selfie shooter of the G60 gives way for a 16MP sensor instead.

Where the Motorola G60S does trump its sibling is the charging stakes. The company claims the 50W charging system can give the phone 12 hours of charge in 12 minutes. In contrast, the G60 packs 20W charging support. However, the G60S does have a smaller 5,000mAh battery compared to its 6,000mAh-toting sibling.

Finally, the phone arrives with Android 11 out of the box and is available in dark blue or silvery green colorways.

Motorola G60S price and availability

The Motorola G60S is about give and take. If you want a bigger battery and larger camera sensors, the G60 is the ticket. Prefer having more cameras and faster charging? The G60S is the better bet. At least for now, you probably won’t need to choose between the two.

Motorola launched the Moto G60S in Brazil starting at 2,499 Brazilian real (~$478). That’s considerably pricier than the G60 in India, but Brazil does have a complicated smartphone market that often faces inflated prices.

There’s no word on the international availability of the G60S, but expect it to drop closer to the G60’s price tag should it make the journey to other markets.
