Emboldened by the success of the past two years in the global smartphone scene in general and the US market in particular, Motorola remains busier than ever, expanding its network to cover the largely ignored business segment while increasing its mass-focused efforts in high-end and mid-range divisions.
Hot on the heels of a global Moto G Play (2023) and first in China Moto G53 5G, the Lenovo-owned company is preparing to unveil a G73 5G model and a G53 5G variant for the rest of the world soon.
While it’s obviously pretty easy to guess the main features and specs of this latest device, the former didn’t make a lot of headlines until today, holding quite a few surprises, at least according to the folks here. TheTechOutlook.
Unsurprisingly, the global Moto G53 looks identical to the Chinese-only version.
Although the name might suggest we’re dealing with some sort of improvement over the mid-range Moto G72 from just a few months ago, the Moto G73 5G is oddly expected to sport an arguably substandard LCD display with a “normal” resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, excellent refresh rate support of 120 Hz and a slightly smaller diagonal of 6.5 inches.
The 50+8MP dual rear camera system doesn’t sound great either, suggesting that Motorola had to cut some corners to make the 5G-capable G73 as affordable as the aforementioned 4G LTE-only G72.
Notice the 6.6-inch Moto G72 made its commercial debut in India in October 2022 at the rough local equivalent of $230 with a P-OLED display in tow and a 108MP primary shooter joined by an 8MP secondary and 2MP tertiary imaging sensor on the back.
The Moto G73 5G doesn’t look all that different from the G53 5G…on the outside.
If the Moto G73 5G is similarly priced with a more than respectable MediaTek Dimensity 930 processor under the hood, as well as a hefty 5000mAh battery, Android 13 on the software side, a good old-fashioned headphone jack, and a decent combo of 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage space in an entry-level configuration, something tells us that many of you will find it in yourself to ignore the aforementioned weaknesses.
Sadly, the Moto G73 5G and G53 5G are unlikely to reach the US, at least if history is any indication, although on the bright side they might just share a bunch of specs and the angle of extreme affordability with a Moto G (2023) device destined to see the light of day in the US…sooner or later.
