Motorola has quietly announced the Moto G22 for select global markets, including Europe. The device was the subject of an elaborate leak earlier this week, so its official launch was always on the cards.

The company said in a blog post that Moto G22 would be available in “selected markets” across Europe, in addition to Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, and India. However, the smartphone’s launch date will differ based on the region.

In line with the earlier leak, the Moto G22 features a 6.5-inch 1600 x 720 screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It sports MediaTek’s Helio G37 SoC which brings the PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Users will also find 64GB of internal storage plus 4GB of RAM. Motorola says the internal storage is expandable up to 1TB using a compatible microSD card.

The Moto G22 is one of the few smartphones right now to offer a 3.5mm headphone jack

A total of four cameras are available on the rear panel, which includes a 50-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, and two 2-megapixel cameras for depth and macro functionalities, respectively. A decent 16-megapixel selfie camera sits on the front.

Unlike conventional smartphones, the Moto G22 even offers a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is undoubtedly one of its highlights. Additionally, the phone utilizes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner embedded within the power button. The phone features Android 12 with the company’s My UX software overlay. But as 9to5Google points out, Motorola hasn’t shared future update plans for the mid-ranger.

Lastly, a 5,000mAh battery ensures the device can hold its own for at least a day. While the Moto G22 supports 15W fast charging, Motorola only offers a 10W charging adapter in the box. Users will appreciate the inclusion of water-repellent coating to protect the device from accidental splashes of water or rain.

Customers have options between Cosmic Black, Pearl White, and Iceberg Blue color variants for the Moto G22. The smartphone will cost €169 ($185) in Europe, so it’s pretty reasonably priced considering the features onboard.

It’s clear this phone won’t break benchmark scores or camera performance records. Nevertheless, it should be a decent addition to the highly crowded mid-range smartphone market across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. The company didn’t say if the Moto G22 would break cover North America.
