Snappy processor and massive main camera
MediaTek's Helio G99 processor powers the Moto G72, which is paired with 128GB expandable storage and 6/8GB RAM. Dual SIM support is available although you'll need to drop the microSD card since it's a hybrid tray rather than a complete dual slot. In addition to the stereo speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack is found sitting adjacent to the USB-C port.
In terms of imaging, a triple camera module is housed at the rear. The main sensor is a 108MP snapper while the other is an 8MP ultrawide and a measly 2MP macro camera. Despite the massive shooter, video recording is limited to 1080p resolution at 60fps. Furthermore, a 16MP selfie camera sits on a punch hole cut out on the display.
Moto G72 pricing and missing 5G support
Motorola's Moto G72 runs on Android 12 OS. It also packs a 5000mAh battery and a generous 30W fast charging. There is also an NFC along with WiFi ac and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. Noticeably, the device misses a 5G feature, which may disappoint those looking for faster data speed.
The Moto G72 is available in Meteorite Grey, Mineral White, and Polar Blue. It retails between €260 to €280 depending on which country you're in. Motorola didn't confirm if the Moto G72 will head to the US and Canada, though we don't want to dash anyone's hope.
