After the first Moto G Stylus launched in February 2020, Motorola introduced the Moto G Stylus (2021) with a huge 6.8-inch display early last year. A few months later, in June, its 5G variant arrived with the same features except for the processor and battery. Today, the next generation of mobiles compatible with the stylus from Motorola has just seen the light of day in the United States: the Moto G Stylus (2022).

Beyond the stylus that gives it its surname, this third generation has many similarities with its predecessor, to the point that it once again opts for 4G connectivity. Of course, the 2022 edition makes the jump to 90Hz, improves RAM, battery and rear camera, and bets on MediaTek at the expense of Qualcomm.

Small but important improvements

The Moto G Stylus (2022) inherits the 6.8-inch LCD display with FullHD+ resolution that last year’s model sported, but it now has a 90Hz refresh rate and has moved the screen hole. the front camera in the center of the panel. This camera, by the way, repeats with a resolution of 16 megapixels.

For the processor, Motorola has decided to leave Qualcomm to bet on the MediaTek Helio G88, which comes here with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage expandable with a microSD card up to 512 GB. operating upgrades to Android 11, while the battery drops from 4,000 to 5,000 mAh, but still does not support fast charging.

If we look at the rear camera, we see that the new model has lost one sensor (now it’s triple), but has gained in resolution compared to its predecessor. It consists of a 50-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with macro function and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

The last difference is in the fingerprint reader, which is now mounted on the side, instead of on the back. For the rest, the Moto G Stylus (2022) retains the stylus that gives it its name and the same connectivity options, including the headphone jack and the absence of NFC.
