Motorola has announced the Moto G42 in two colours. The mid-range handset relies on the Snapdragon 680 chipset and 4 GB of RAM, which power a large OLED display. The Moto G42 has 128 GB of expandable storage too, plus a 5,000 mAh battery.

Motorola has introduced the Moto G42, a more budget alternative to the Moto G52 that the company released in April. For some reason, the Moto G41 looks more like the Moto G52 than the Moto G42 does. Regardless, the Moto G42 relies on the Snapdragon 680 4G, a 6 nm SoC that also powers the Moto G52.

For reference, the Snapdragon 680 4G has an Adreno 610 GPU that Qualcomm pairs with ARM Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A73 CPU cores. Additionally, Motorola has included 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable storage and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 20 W fast charging. Incidentally, the Moto G42 has a 6.4-inch OLED display with a 1080p native resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Furthermore, Motorola equips the Moto G42 with 16 MP front-facing, 50 MP primary, 8 MP ultra-wide and 2 MP macro cameras.

According to Motorola's press release, the Moto G42 will launch first in Brazil, where it will be available 'in the coming days' in Blue and Rose colour options. However, the handset will be making its way to other Latin America countries soon; Motorola plans to bring the Moto G42 to Asia, Europe, India and the Middle East 'in the coming weeks' too. Unfortunately, Motorola has not announced pricing for any markets yet.
