Motorola is planning to launch a new budget smartphone in the near future, the Moto G53s. This handset has surfaced on the Google Play Console, and not only confirmed its existence, but some of its specs too.

The Moto G53s is Motorola’s upcoming budget phone

Based on the Google Play Console listing, the phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon SM4350 processor, which is the Snapdragon 480 SoC. That SoC is expected to be backed by 4GB of RAM.

Android 13 will come pre-installed on the device, with Motorola’s MyUX on top of it. We still don’t know the phone’s display size, but we do know that the resolution will be 1600 x 720 (HD+).


That is basically all the information that was shared. Based on this, however, we can clearly see this will be an entry-level phone. It will be very affordable, and likely be geared toward specific markets.

It could resemble the Moto G53

When it comes to the design, well, that’s still a mystery. The Moto G53s could easily look a lot like the Moto G53, though. We’ll almost certainly get a flat display, with a centered display camera hole up top, or a waterdrop display notch, perhaps.

One or two cameras will sit on the back of the phone, while the “chin” below the display will be noticeable. That bezel will be thicker than the rest for sure, as it is on basically every other phone in that price segment.

The launch date is also still a mystery. The phone did appear on the Google Play Console, but that doesn’t mean it will launch in the coming days or anything of the sort. It will probably arrive in the near future, though. So, we’ll just have to wait for Motorola to fill in the blanks, as we don’t have much info at the moment.
