The Moto G23 model is very close to the Moto G13 smartphone announced at the same time. Even the appearance is identical (but, however, the colors are slightly different). I see three differences:
- Charging has become faster - 30 watts instead of 10 watts.
- Slightly better camera. Upgraded the front. Instead of a depth sensor, they put a simple wide-angle module.
- There is a version with a decent amount of RAM.
To the characteristics.
The chipset is still the same MediaTek Helio G85 from 2020. So there is no support for 5G networks, and in AnTuTu we expect the same modest 200-250 thousand points.
Memory. 4 or 8 GB RAM, 128 GB permanent, there is support for memory cards. (Moto G13 always has 4 GB of RAM).
A screen with a slightly raised (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate, but otherwise quite simple. Diagonal 6.5″ (102 cm²), resolution 720×1600 (270 ppi).
The battery is standard good, 5000 mAh.
Cameras. Front 16 MP instead of 8 MP for Moto G13. Behind - 50 + 5 + 2 MP. The wide-angle module can also be used as a depth sensor.
With a probability of 95%, the simplest fifty dollars available on the market is used as the main sensor, i.e. Samsung ISOCELL JN1.
Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a fifth Wi-Fi, Type-C.
At the start of sales in Germany, the Motorola Moto G23 will cost €229.99 (₽17,200, $250) for the 8+128 GB version.
