Motorola Moto G22: images and technical specifications, imminent debut

A very interesting start to 2022 is expected for Motorola which is preparing to expand and renew its range of smartphones. After the US launch of the Moto G Stylus 2022, and looking forward to Moto Edge 30 Pro (a rebranding of the Moto Edge X30 already launched in China) which will be announced next week, rumors continue to circulate on other lower-end devices as well.

Evan Blass recently published the unofficial press renders of six brand new smartphones Motorola. These are the code names: Dubai, Austin, Rhode 4G and 5G, the Rogue with hidden camera in the display and Huawaii Plus. Of the latter, which will arrive on the market with the initials Moto G22, some rumors about the hardware characteristics have also emerged.

Compared to the predecessor Moto G20, this smartphone should have a display without a drop notch but with a more modern “hole” to accommodate a 16 megapixel camera with f / 2.45 aperture. The panel will not be an OLED but it should be a more modest 6.5-inch IPS LCD with 90 Hz refresh rate and 1600 x 720 pixel resolution.

They complete the picture a Helio G37 processor from MediaTek Supported by 4 GB of RAM64GB of storage, a 5,000mAh battery and a triple rear camera with 50 MP main sensor with f / 1.8 aperturean 8MP sensor with ultra-wide angle optics and f / 2.2 aperture and a 2MP macro sensor also useful for capturing information on depth of field.

Obviously, these specifications place the device in the full “entry level” range, with a price that it should hardly exceed 200 euros.


Evan Blass provides us new indications on Moto G22: starting from the renderings, which partly clash with the previous one (shown at the top in the original article) as regards the rear photographic module that presents the upper cam enclosed in an oval that also contains the LED flash. Subtleties, of course, but it has now been established that one of the few ways for manufacturers to differentiate themselves from the competition is to work on the design of that part of the body that houses the cams.

Even more important is the presence of one fourth camerawhich in the previous rumors was not contemplated: to the 50MP, 8MP and 2MP sensors in fact, another 2MP should be added. Below we report the allegedly updated technical data sheet with the latest information. The debut is expected at the end of February.
