Motorola seems to be working on a new, affordable smartphone that should appear in 2023. The first image of the device has now surfaced.
‘New Motorola phone pops up’
The ongoing well-introduced smartphone Evan Blass has in collaboration with website Gadget corridor shared an image of a new Motorola smartphone. The device is codenamed ‘Penang’ and should be released sometime next year. The image is quite blurry, but it does show the design of the phone.
Not much is known about the Motorola Penang yet. Blass does report that it has 4GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage space. This indicates that the Penang will be an affordable phone in the budget or mid-range segment. It is therefore probably a Moto G or Moto E device.
It can be seen that the Moto has a screen with a camera hole at the top. On the right side of the housing are the volume buttons and power button, the latter of which may contain a fingerprint scanner. We don’t know how big the screen is, but the thick chin (the heavy edge) under the screen is striking. That also points to an affordable smartphone.
The cameras also catch the eye, especially the fact that there are ‘only’ two on the back. Many manufacturers choose to equip their phones with three or even four cameras, although they are not always useful. For example, a macro camera or depth sensor is of very little use in practice.
More about Motorola smartphones
Motorola has released the necessary smartphones this year. For example, the company came up with various budget devices, but also more expensive phones in the Edge series, for example. Consider, for example, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, Edge 30 Fusion and Edge 30 Neo.
The company recently introduced the Moto G72, a smartphone of 299 euros with a 108-megapixel main camera. More interesting is the new Motorola Razr 2022, a luxurious (and very expensive) folding phone with a screen that can open and close vertically. We have published a review of the Motorola Razr 2022, in which we tell you everything about the device.
