Introducing the Moto G22 – a regular and affordable smartphone from Motorola
body Moto G22 made of polymer called It is made of PMMA (Polymethyl Methacrylate) and is water resistant as claimed by Motorola. Of course, this phone cannot withstand submersion or high water pressure, but only a gentle splash of water drops or rain. In addition, Motorola did not mention any IP or degree of protection in support of this claim. The new Motorola phone is designed in dimensions of 8.49 x 74.94 x 163.95 mm and weighs 185 grams. The colors of this device are black (Cosmic Black), white (Pearl White) and blue (Iceberg Blue). It should be noted that mint green was also announced as one of the colors of this phone, but Moto G22 is not available in this color.
The 6.5-inch screen of the phone (branded as Max Vision) is LCD type. The resolution of the screen is HD+ (equivalent to 720 x 1600 pixels), which brings its density to 268 pixels per inch. The aspect ratio of the screen is 20:9 and it covers 89.03% of the body surface. The display refresh rate is 90Hz, but there’s no word on the touch sample rate. Not to mention, there is a hole in the center of the top of the display to accommodate the selfie camera – 16 megapixel resolution and f/2.45 aperture.
Processing Moto G22 is entrusted with the 12nm Helio G37 chip (Mediatek product). This chipset consists of 4 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 cores and 4 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores, and its graphics processing unit is IMG GE8230 with a frequency of 680 MHz. 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory are intended for this phone, which can be upgraded to another 1 TB using a microSD card.
The camera set on the back of the device has four members; The main camera has a resolution of 50 megapixels (f/1.8) and the size of its pixels is 0.64 microns. Of course, due to the Quad Pixel technology, all 4 pixels are combined into 1 pixel, and in this way, the size of each pixel has increased to 1.28 microns, and this camera takes photos with a resolution of 12.5 megapixels by default (of course, photography with a resolution of 50 megapixels is also possible. Is). The main camera is equipped with phase detection autofocus and can record FHD video at 30 frames per second. Night mode, HDR, portrait mode, panoramic photography, professional mode and integration with Google Lens are other features of this camera.
Another member of the collection is an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera – with f/2.2 aperture and 118-degree field of view. Not featured in Moto G Power 2022 . A depth sensor and a macro camera (each with a resolution of 2 megapixels and an aperture of f/2.4) complete the set. Of course, the high number of cameras in affordable phones is mainly a matter of show, and the main task in this series is the same as the main and ultrawide cameras, because here the depth sensor is not capable of capturing images by itself, and the 2 megapixel resolution of the macro camera is also so low. is that it can’t cope with macro photography as it should.
A battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh provides the energy needed by the phone. According to the manufacturer, the battery life (in case of normal use) reaches 37.8 hours. The battery supports standard 15W charging, but surprisingly, the charger provided with the device is 10W. Moto G22 operating system Android 12 and the exclusive My UX skin has changed its appearance and features to some extent. Motorola regarding how many Android updates this phone will receive or how long the security updates will last will have, has not provided any details.
The limitations of the Helio G37 chip deprive this phone of 5G communication and thus the Moto G22 is considered a 4G phone. This device accepts 2 SIM cards and fortunately a separate slot is dedicated to microSD. The fingerprint sensor – due to the lack of OLED panel – is inevitably placed on the edge of the device, and in addition, facial recognition can also be used for authentication. Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C port, headphone jack, NFC and support for GLONASS, GPS and Galileo routers are other communication features of this phone.
Smartphone Motorola Moto G22 to It will soon enter selected European markets at a price of 169.99 euros. In the next few weeks, this product will reach the markets of Latin America, the Middle East and India.
