Motorola has revealed its latest lineup of Moto G smartphones, starting with the Moto G200. This is followed by four mid-range offerings, namely the Moto G71, G51, G41, and the G31. Expectedly, the Moto G200 is the most exciting offering of the lot, thanks to its hardware.
The Moto G200 brings a 6.8-inch (2460×1080) LCD screen with a refresh rate of 144Hz and HDR10 support. The high refresh rate makes this device unique to the mobile industry, particularly given the pricing. In line with previous reports, the Moto G200 packs the octa-core Snapdragon 888+ 5G chipset, which is complemented by 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage (via).
In the camera department, the Moto G200 brings a 108-megapixel primary sensor along with an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s a 16-megapixel camera on the front for selfies. The smartphone offers a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. The company claims the G200 can provide a day’s worth of use with just 15 minutes of charging.
Motorola is utilizing plastic for the front and back panels of the Moto G200 coupled with IP52 certified water resistance. The phone runs Android 11 by default, with what appears to be a near-stock version of Google’s software and a layer of Motorola’s My UX on top. The company promises at least one major Android OS update for the smartphone.
The Moto G200 will reach Europe over the next few weeks with a price tag of €450 ($510). It will eventually make its way to Latin America, the company said.
All five phones bring Android 11 and 5,000mAh batteries underneath
Meanwhile, the Moto G71 is a relatively smaller 5G smartphone, featuring a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with a 60Hz refresh rate. It runs on the recently launched Snapdragon 695 SoC with 6/8GB of RAM, depending on the market. The phone offers 128GB of internal storage, which is expandable via microSD.
The G71 offers a 50-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro unit on the rear panel. However, video recording with this camera is limited to 1080p at 60fps.
The front has a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Much like the M200, the G71 features a 5,000mAh battery but with 30W fast charging support. Other common features include an IP52 rating and Android 11. At €300 ($340), the phone will reach Europe soon, followed by India, Latin America, and the Middle East.
The Moto G51 focuses on the budget segment, offering a 6.8-inch Full HD+ LCD screen running at 120Hz, the Snapdragon 480+ chip, 4/6/8GB RAM options, 64/128GB of storage with support for microSD expansion, Android 11, and a 5,000mAh battery with 10W charging.
Users will also find a triple camera layout on the back (50MP + 8MP + 2MP), and a 13-megapixel selfie camera. The phone costs €230 ($260) and would first break cover in Europe, while India, Latin America, the Middle East, and other Asian markets slated to get the device shortly after.
The Moto G41 brings a 6.4-inch OLED panel with a Full HD+ resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. The phone runs on MediaTek’s Helio G85 chip and offers 4/6GB of RAM plus 64/128GB of storage with a microSD card slot. There’s a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel macro unit on the back. Motorola settles for a 13-megapixel camera on the front.
The Moto G41 also brings Android 11 and a 5,000mAh battery which can charge at 30W. At €250, this device costs slightly more than the Moto G51, likely due to the OLED screen. European customers will have first dibs while eventually landing in Latin America and the Middle East.
The last of the five new phones launched today, the Moto G31 uses a 6.4-inch OLED FHD+ screen. It uses the MediaTek Helio G85 chip mentioned above, though it offers 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage. Although 5G support is lacking on the G31, it offers a triple camera layout in a 48-megapixel + 8-megapixel + 2-megapixel configuration. The front camera is a 13-megapixel unit.
Like all Motorola phones launched today, the Moto G31 comes with Android 11 and a 5,000mAh battery. However, charging speeds are capped to 10W. This also happens to be the cheapest phone on this list with a cost of €200 ($226). The phone will reach Europe, India, the Middle East, Latin America, and other markets in Asia over the next few weeks.
