Motorola has lifted the lid on the Moto G22, its latest budget Android smartphone. The Moto G22 features the new MediaTek Helio G37 chipset, 4 GB of RAM and expandable storage, plus a 90 Hz display. Motorola has also equipped the Moto G22 with a 50 MP primary camera, among other features.

Motorola has announced the Moto G22 just a day after WinFuture leaked the device. As expected, the Moto G22 features a 6.5-inch display and a MediaTek Helio G37 SoC. However, the display relies on IPS technology, not AMOLED or OLED, as WinFuture claimed. Still, the Moto G22 offers a 720 x 1,600-pixel native resolution, a 268 PPI pixel density and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Additionally, the display peaks at 90 Hz and has an 89.03% screen-to-body ratio.

Moreover, the Moto G22 has a microSD card reader, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3.5 mm headphone jack, plus face unlock through its 16 MP front-facing camera (ƒ/2.45/1.0 μm). Incidentally, Motorola has equipped the device with a 50 MP primary camera (ƒ/1.8/0.64 μm) that supports 4-in-1 pixel binning, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera (ƒ/2.2/1.12 μm) with a 118° field of view and dual 2 MP cameras (ƒ/2.4/1.75 μm) for calculating depth of field and macro information.

According to Motorola's German website, it will only sell the Moto G22 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. In comparison, TechRadar asserts that Motorola will also sell 128 GB variants. The smartphone will be available Iceberg Blue, Cosmic Black, Mint Green, or Pearl White colourways, but Motorola is not bringing all these to every market.

The Moto G22 will start shipping in the Eurozone and the UK later this month for €169.99 and £139.99, respectively. Motorola will release the Moto G22 in Latin America, the Middle East, Asia and India 'in the coming weeks'; all regional variants will ship with Android 12. There is no word yet on whether the company will bring the Moto G22 to North America, though.
