Already released for the Chinese market, the Motorola Moto G53 will shortly debut in the European market alongside the even more powerful Moto G73.
Motorola is about to expand the Moto G family of phones with two new models based on Android 13.
Identified by the codename Penang 5G, the Moto G53 5G is already available in stores in China for $129, for the 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage trim. Obviously, the European price will be adjusted to include import taxes, plus a markup tailored to the region’s purchasing power.
Confirmed through unofficial channels, the specs list has the Snapdragon 480+ chipset at its core, paired with 4 or 6GB RAM, but no more than 128GB expandable storage. If Motorola didn’t make adjustments specifically for European consumers, the Moto G53 had a 6.5-inch 120Hz HD+ LCD screen, inferior to the 1080p OLED solution found on the Moto G52. Also shown in unofficial renders, the phone appears with a prominent “chin” at the bottom of the screen, a detail that seems to confirm the use of an LCD panel. The preliminary specs list is rounded out with headphone jack output, stereo speakers, 50MP main camera with f/1.8 lens and 4-to-1 pixel binning support, 8MP front camera, and 5000mAh battery, but with only 10W slow charging.
Identified by the codename Devon 5G, the Moto G73 5G looks like a much more interesting choice, which while still offering a 120Hz LCD screen, is floating FHD+ resolution and a more powerful Dimensity 930 chipset. Priced unspecified, the phone comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. While the battery capacity remains unchanged, the G73 supports TurboPower fast charging technology, delivering up to 30W of power via USB-C. The photo setup offers 50MP resolution on the main sensor, 8MP ultrawide camera and 16MP front camera.
Illustrated with unofficial renders, the Motorola Moto G53 and Moto G73 are expected to hit the European market in the near future, but pricing and release timing are unconfirmed at this time.
