[Exclusive] Motorola Moto G22: first pics and full specifications

Here's your very first look at the design and specs of the upcoming phone

Highlights
  • Moto G22 is a MediaTek G37-powered Android 12 phone from Motorola
  • It features a 6.5-inch LCD with HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate
  • Supposedly launching before the end of February, it goes by the internal codename “Hawaii+”

Motorola’s Moto G series, its oldest continuously-produced family of smartphones (dating back to 2013, when the company was still a Google subsidiary), is also probably its most confusingly-named, thanks to a pivot two (model) years ago, wherein the once iterative naming scheme shifted to accommodate a significant expansion. So where once we simply had a Moto G6, G6+, G6 Play, etc, the Moto G10 was joined by a G30, G40, G50 and so on, with successors along the lines of G31, G41, and G51.

The first handset to launch as part of the third iteration of this naming scheme will be the Moto G22, codenamed Hawaii+. It’s one of at least five models Motorola has in the works which incorporate Hawaii in their codename, and to make matters even more confusing, they’re not all confined to the Moto G lineup; Hawaii+ Lite, for instance, will tentatively come to market as the Moto E32s.

Motorola Moto G22 specifications

Scheduled to launch worldwide by the end of the month powered by Android 12, G22 (which will also be sold by Lenovo as the K15+) is a 6.5-inch device whose LCD offers 1,600 x 720 resolution (268 PPI) and a 90Hz refresh rate. At its heart is a MediaTek Helio G37 SoC with eight A53 ARM cores — half running at 2.3GHz and the other half at 1.8GHz — along with a 680MHz GPU. Memory configurations will vary depending on region, but a typical configuration sports 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage capacity, expandable via microSD slot.

Its rear camera array contains four shooters: a 50-megapixel main cam with f1.8 lens, 8MP f2.2 wide angle, 2MP f2.4 macro, and another 2MP f2.4 for depth-of-field. The front-facing, or selfie, camera, meanwhile, is of the 16MP f2.0 variety.

Other highlights include a beefy 5,000mAh battery, standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and side-mounted fingerprint sensor incorporated into the power button.
