Moto G22 has been launched in the European market as the successor to the Moto G20 that debuted last year. Interestingly, Motorola has skipped the Moto G21 for some reason. The latest G-series smartphone is a budget handset that packs considerable specifications for the price segment. However, all things considered, it only brings minor upgrades over its predecessor and does not offer 5G support, which is expected from this price bracket. Motorola is yet to announce the Moto G22 India launch details, but we can expect them to become available shortly. Till then, let’s take a look at what the Moto G22 has to offer.
Moto G22 price, availability
The Moto G22 comes in a single 4GB RAM and 64GB storage configuration, priced at EUR 169.99 (approx Rs 14,000) in Germany. The Cosmic Black, Iceberg Blue, and Pearl White colour options line up perfectly as we exclusively shared the renders of Moto G22. As we mentioned, there is no official word about the India debut of the Moto G22 at the moment. However, its predecessor, the Moto G20, is available in the country, so we can expect the Moto G22 to be announced in India soon.

Moto G22 vs Moto G20 upgrades
In terms of upgrades over its predecessors, the new Moto G22 offers a more powerful MediaTek Helio G37 gaming SoC, while last year’s model had to contend with the Unisoc T700 chipset. The OS has also been upgraded from Android 11 to Android 12 this time around. In the photography department, the primary camera resolution has been bumped up from 48MP in the G20 to 50MP in G22, while the selfie camera has seen a megapixel increase too, from 13MP to 16MP. The fingerprint sensor, which was placed on the back of the Moto G20, has been embedded in the power button on the right side of its successor.
