Motorola has confirmed how much the Moto G42 will cost when it launches soon in Europe. Equipped with an AMOLED display, the Moto G42 also features the Snapdragon 680, 4 GB of RAM and a 5,000 mAh battery. The Moto G42 has 50 MP primary and 16 MP front-facing cameras too, like many recent Moto G series smartphones.

The Moto G42 is on the verge of a European release, having been introduced by Motorola last week. As we reported at the time, Motorola only initially confirmed that the Moto G42 would appear in Brazil first, with other markets set to receive the handset 'in the coming weeks'. Now, Motorola has added the Moto G42 to many of its European websites, where it is listed in Atlantic Green and Metallic Rosé colourways.

Although Motorola has not included the price on its Dutch, German or Italian websites, GSMArena claims that the Moto G42 will retail for €209.99, including VAT. For reference, Motorola will only offer the Moto G42 with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. However, the Moto G42 has a microSD card reader, should you need to store more than 128 GB of files.

Additionally, Motorola has since confirmed that the Moto G42 has an AMOLED display, unlike the Moto G62 5G. Measuring 6.4-inches across, the 20:9 display also has a 2,400 x 1,080-pixel native resolution and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Moreover, Motorola equips the Moto G42 with a Snapdragon 680 chipset, a 5,000 mAh battery that it can recharge at 18 W, plus its usual trio of 50 MP primary, 8 MP ultra-wide and 2 MP depth cameras. Like the Moto G62 5G, the Moto G42 relies on a 16 MP sensor for its front-facing camera.

Currently, it is unknown when Motorola will begin shipping the Moto G42. Still, the 4G handset will arrive with MyUX based on Android 12, plus a 20 W charger, a USB Type-C cable, a Quick Start Guide, a protective case and a SIM tool.
