Motorola has just announced its latest smartphone, called the Moto G Stylus 2022. It’s the successor of Moto G Stylus from last year and comes with a dedicated stylus for easier navigation. In this article, we will be covering the new Moto G Stylus 2022 in more detail, including its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Moto G Stylus 2022 Overview:
Design and Display
The Moto G Stylus 2022 features the same 6.8-inch Max Vision screen as its predecessor, but it now has support for a 90Hz refresh rate. Other than that, it’s an IPS LCD panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio—the same as last year. Yet, the main selling point of the phone is the stylus that it ships with. Motorola has provided a slot at the bottom to slide in the stylus.
Users can use the stylus for navigation and editing. Moreover, its operating system—My UX comes with additional features to leverage the stylus. Users can use it to edit screenshots and take notes. For the latter, the phone has the Moto Note app pre-installed on the device.
Furthermore, the smartphone has a plastic body, and even so, it’s not particularly lightweight as it weighs around 216 grams. Likewise, it measures 9.45mm in thickness. Moto says the phone is water repellent, however, it doesn’t have any official IP rating.
In terms of processor, Motorola has opted for MediaTek Helio G88, which seems to be a downgrade from the Snapdragon 480 5G on the G Stylus 5G. The two CPUs have the same efficiency cores (6x 1.8GHz Corex-A55), but Snapdragon 480 5G has better performance cores in the form of Cortex-A76. In addition, MediaTek G88 is based on a less efficient 12nm process and misses out on 5G connectivity.
The new Moto G Stylus comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The latter is expandable up to 512GB using a microSD card slot.

At the back, Moto has redesigned the camera island to match the recent G-series phones. It is home to a triple camera setup. Here, the primary camera uses a 50MP sensor with an f/1.9 aperture. Accompanying this is an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth sensor.
However, there is no dedicated macro sensor this time around. To make up for this, the ultrawide lens doubles as a macro camera. Over on the front, there is a 16MP sensor enclosed inside the punch-hole camera cutout.
Rest of the specs
Moto G Stylus 2022 has a 5,000mAh battery, and the charging speed caps at just 10W. For biometrics, the smartphone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Moreover, even if Android 12 has been on the market for some time now, the Moto G Stylus 22 still boots on Android 11.
