Motorola is now projected to have a new Moto G-series of Android smartphones to introduce to the Indian market soon. This "G72" is the subject of new leaks that hint at a design more like that of higher-end 2022 devices from the same OEM, not to mention updated biometrics. Then again, unlike its apparent predecessor, it may only support 4G/LTE.

OnLeaks and PriceBaba have partnered once again to present a collection of renders that, as the leakers claim, show an immediate successor for the Motorola Moto G71. Then again, one would hardly know the smartphone is supposedly a mid-ranger, as it seems to have borrowed design cues from much more premium new devices from the same brand.

The camera hump in these images could indeed have come straight from the Edge 30 Fusion, although it is finished in different greenish blue, grayish black and silver-white color options. It is also depicted as having flat edges with a 3.5mm jack as well as a USB type-C port.

That would be no more than the Moto G71 can offer; however, the G72's fingerprint sensor might migrate into its ~6.5-inch display as opposed to its rear panel this time around. OnLeaks and PriceBaba did not cover its screen type or refresh rate in any detail, although they hint at the return of a 5,000mAh battery to keep it on.

It is also expected to have 4 to 8GB of RAM with up to 256GB of internal storage, whereas the G71 was capped at 128GB. Then again, the G72 is also now thought to have a 48MP main camera, which (in Android terms) may imply an older sensor than the 50MP primary shooter of the G71.

Finally, the "Moto G72" is said to have passed FCC testing as the Motorola XT-2255, which reveals that its connectivity goes up to 4G/LTE only.

Therefore, its OEM may want to save money for both itself and the consumer on this smartphone's putative Indian launch - either that or this is more of a Moto G71 4G that might make it to the market by the end of 2022.
