Motorola is continuously updating its various smartphone series and now refreshing the Moto G lineup with an updated Power model. It shouldn’t be considered the most exciting update. The company has updated the Moto G Power 2022 model with a 5,000mAh battery. Motorola claims it can provide up to three days of continuous use. The company has added a 6.5-inch display that features a panel with a 720p resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. However, this latest model is a tweaked triple camera array highlighted by a 50-megapixel main camera. Motorola has also significantly improved its low-light performance.
The 2022 Moto G Power trades the ultra-wide camera of its predecessor for a 2-megapixel macro camera and 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is also an 8-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens. You can record video footage with both the front- and rear-facing cameras with the Dual capture feature of Motorola. The phone internally features an octa-core MediaTek Helio G37 processor supported by 4GB of RAM. Motorola will sell the phone in two storage configurations, with the 64GB model costing $200 unlocked, while the 128GB variant will set you back $250. A MicroSD slot allows you to add up to 512GB of additional storage. Other important features include IP52 waterproofing and a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
One thing Moto G Power doesn’t include is an NFC chip, so you won’t be able to use it with Google Pay to make mobile payments. It is noteworthy one other thing that the Moto G Power is limited to 10W charging. It clearly indicates that the phone will take a while to charge its 5,000mAh battery. Moto G Power will ship with Android 11 out of the box. The Moto G Power 2022 will go on sale in the US in the coming months at Republic Wireless and T-Mobile’s Metro flanker brand. However, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Xfinity Mobile, AT&T, Cricket, US Cellular, and Google Fi will also carry the device at a later date, with unlocked availability at Best Buy and Amazon to follow sometime in 2022.
