Motorola has announced its new G22 handset, a budget phone that offers a number of attractive features for bargain buyers.

The Motorola G22 has been announced, with the main specification being the quadruple camera system, led by a 50-megapixel main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and 4-to-1 pixel binning. The other sensors are an 8 megapixel 118 degree ultrawide, a 2 megapixel depth sensor and a 2 megapixel macro snapper, while the selfie camera has a 16 megapixel resolution.

The device measures 163.95 x 74.94 x 8.49 mm and weighs 185 g. Motorola claims it is “water resistant”, although there does not appear to be an official IP rating.

The 6.5-inch LCD screen has an HD+ resolution (1600x720p) and offers an improved refresh rate of 90Hz. The phone runs on a MediaTek Helio G37 chipset, which is complemented by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of RAM depending on the variant you choose, which can be further expanded up to 1 TB via an SD card.

This unit does indeed have the kind of hefty battery you’d expect from a Motorola device, namely a 5000mAh cell (which can be topped up with 15W charging), and it also retains a 3.5mm headphone jack for plugged-in audio; however, there’s only one speaker, so you won’t get stereo sound when you play music out loud.

The software is Google’s latest Android 12 operating system, with Motorola’s typically minimalist user interface overlaid, and it has NFC support for contactless payments.

The Motorola G22 will be available in the UK from “mid-March” this year, starting at a starting price of £139.99. There are three color options – Iceberg Blue, Cosmic Black or Pearl White – and you can find it at major retailers including Amazon, Argos, Currys, Giff Gaff, John Lewis & Partners, O2, Tesco and direct from uk.
