1/5 Motorola Moto G42 uses the generic Snapdragon 680 chipset found on most budget phones these days. With 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, the Moto G42 isn't a fast phone. We observed sluggish performance with laggy animations and long app load times.  (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

3/5 Motorola Moto G42 offers a near-stock Android 12 experience with Pixel UI elements. It looks good and lets you tweak the UI slightly, allowing some customisation. However, there are pre-loaded apps, which is very un-Motorola like. We did not observe any advertisements in the UI. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

5/5 Motorola Moto G42 features a rather average se of triple cameras on its back. The 50MP main camera is the only one worth using in day and night; the 8MP wide camera and 2MP macro camera disappoint a lot.  (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

Motorola is coming with the Moto G72 to India and it could entice Redmi Note 11 Pro prospective buyers. In an era where budget phones are going the extra mile to accomodate a 5G chip, Motorola is taking a different approach by sticking to a 4G chip and delivering features that matter. The phone is launching on October 3 and could be priced under Rs. 20,000, thereby challenging the Redmi Note 11 Pro. Ahead of the launch, Motorola has revealed all the specs on a Flipkart page.

The Moto G72 is a massively different smartphone from the previous Moto G series devices we have seen recently. It is after a long while that Motorola changes the design on its Moto G lineup. Then there are some standout features such as a 120Hz pOLED display as well as a 108MP rear camera, and a 108MP rear camera. Motorola is yet to reveal the price on the Moto G72 but we expect it to compete with the Redmi Note 11 Pro 4G variant in India.

Moto G72 to launch in India soon

The Flipkart teaser page reveals the presence of a 108MP camera sensor for the main camera. Then there's the chipset, which is MediaTek's new Helio G99 chip supporting just 4G networks. Motorola is also offering 6GB LPDDR4X RAM as well as a 128GB storage. It will boot Android 12 out of the box.

Not sure which
mobile to buy?

The highlight of the phone, however, is the 120Hz pOLED display with HDR10 colours, 1300 nits of peak brightness, an in-display fingerprint sensor, as well as a punch-hole cutout for the front camera. The phone will rely on a 5000mAh battery and support 33W wired charging. It will also be IP52 certified for water resistance.

Prior to this, Motorola launched the Edge 30 Ultra as well as the Edge 30 Fusion in India. The Edge 30 Ultra debuted the 200MP camera sensor on a smartphone in India. It also offered the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, a 144Hz refresh rate OLED display, and a 125W wired fast charging option.

The Motorola Edge 30 Fusion is a watered down version of the same, offering a Snapdragon 888+ chipset.
