Two big selling points, one even bigger country
The price will be 18,999 rupees at launch in the distant but extremely competitive Indian market, which converts to only a little over $230. Of course, such conversions are not particularly practical exercises given the G72’s odds of being officially released in the US, which are very close to zero (at least if history is any indication).
If those memory and storage counts fail to impress you, perhaps the silky smooth 120Hz pOLED display and 108MP primary rear-facing shooter will get the job done. The undoubtedly gorgeous screen is billed as India’s “first in segment” with billion colour 10-bit technology, while that very impressive-sounding 108MP imaging sensor promises to produce “incredibly sharp and bright” snapshots with Ultra Pixel technology combining nine pixels into one, well, “ultra large” pixel.
Other strengths and weaknesses
Even more specifically, “next-generation” 4G “gaming” smartphones, which explains the 120Hz display refresh rate capabilities. In combination with a hefty 5,000mAh battery, this unquestionably frugal 6nm-based chipset should also deliver extremely satisfying endurance times between (blazing fast 33W) charges, although curiously enough, Motorola isn’t making any big multi-day battery life marketing promises.
The company’s software support commitment is not exactly… great either, covering just one “assured” OS upgrade and three years of frequent security patches for a device unsurprisingly debuting with Android 12 out the box.
On the decidedly bright side of things, said retail box will include the aforementioned 33-watt TurboPower charger in addition to a USB Type-C cable and protective cover, and the Moto G72 also features a good old fashioned 3.5mm headphone jack and a good old fashioned microSD card slot for extra convenience (compared to many of the latest high-end smartphones out there) on two different levels.
