Moto G32 announced with 6.5" 90Hz LCD, Snapdragon 680

Peter, 28 July 2022

A new Moto G model has arrived and is making the series a little crowded. The Moto G32 is launching in select European markets first with an MSRP of €210, remember that number. The phone will also roll out to India and Latin America “in the coming weeks”.

Back to the price – it’s exactly how much the Moto G42 cost at launch. The related Moto G52 launched at €250, the same price as the Moto G62 5G. See what we mean about crowded? These phones not only cost the same, but they are quite similar. Well, the G32, G42 and G52 are, anyway, they are all powered by the same Snapdragon 680.

That chipset tends to outperform the Helio G85 (which powered by Moto G31) in CPU tasks and lags behind in GPU power. Note that the new G32 has 4/64GB and 6/128GB memory configurations whereas the G42 offers only 4GB of RAM.

There are other reasons you might want to pick the new Moto G32. For starters, it has a 6.5” LCD (FHD+ resolution) with 90Hz refresh rate, the G42 has a 6.4” AMOLED with 60Hz refresh rate.

Then there’s the battery – all three phones have 5,000mAh capacity, but only the new G32 and pricier G52 support 30W fast charging. You can think of the G32 as a cheaper, LCD-packing version of the G52.

We say that because all three phones (well, all four if you include the Moto G62 5G) have the same camera setup. This means a 50MP main module with a small 1/2.76” sensor (0.64µm pixels), plus an 8MP 118° ultra wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro module on the back. On the front, a punch holed 16MP selfie cam (with a Quad Bayer filter). Whether its chipset limitation or otherwise, video capture is limited to 1080p @ 30fps.

The Moto G32 is available in single and dual-SIM flavors. In both cases there is a dedicated spot for a microSD card. It goes without saying that this is a 4G phone. Additional connectivity includes Wi-Fi 5 (ac), Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC. The USB-C port is wired only for 2.0 speeds.

The audio situation is pretty good for an affordable mid-ranger, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack and dual speakers to boot, plus an FM radio receiver.

Yeah i also notice that while using samsung A32 my eyes start hurting a lot after searching about it i came to know that amoled screen is causing these issues Now i ditch that phone and waiting for moto g32

Totally agree. 6.5" is far too big to go in my pocket! There isn't anything on the market right now apart from crappy Android Go phones. There is one half-decent phone from a major that is available in some regions - the Nokia C100 - ...
