Moto G82 goes official with 120Hz OLED & Snapdragon 695
Not a lot different than the Moto G71
May 13, 2022
Motorola officially launched the Moto G82 globally today, and this is the first phone under the Moto G8x series. The specifications are not much different from the Moto G71, which launched in November last year. The main upgrades over the G71 include a high-refresh-rate display and Optical Image Stabilization.
In terms of design, the Moto G82 has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner (the G71 has a rear-mounted scanner). The Motorola logo on the rear is also present in the middle instead of the upper half. The sides are flat, and the body is made of plastic. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom and a USB Type-C port. There are stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, something the Moto G71 does not have. On the front, there is a hole punch for the selfie camera, and it is placed in the middle.
The display on the front is a 6.6-inch Full-HD+ OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate. This is one of the biggest highlights of this phone since Moto G71 has a 60Hz OLED. Under the hood, it has the same Snapdragon 695 5G SOC, 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB storage. The storage is expandable via a microSD card. The battery size is the same too, at 5,000mAh, and so is the charging speed at 30W.
On the back, Moto G82 has three cameras. The primary camera has a 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 lens and OIS. The secondary camera has an 8MP sensor and an ultrawide lens. The third camera is for macro shots. This is the same camera setup as Moto G71 except for the addition of OIS. There is a 16MP selfie camera.
Android 12 runs out of the box with MyUX on top.
Moto G82 comes in two colors – Meteorite Gray and White Lily. For the European market, the price is €329.99, which is just €30 higher than the starting price of the Moto G71. Motorola says the phone will soon launch in Latin America, Asia, India, and the Middle East.
