Two new Motorola phones were just released for the midrange market. Check out the brand-new Moto G73 and G53. All two models are equipped with some of the key specs that 2023 phones should have: a fast 120Hz display, sharp 50-megapixel main camera, and of course, 5G connectivity.

First, we have the Motorola Moto G73. Powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 930 octa-core processor, it brings the sub-6GHz 5G modem to the device. It can only be had with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of expandable storage, but more variants might be announced as it reaches more markets.


On the front, there’s a standard-size 6.5-inch IPS screen with an FHD+ pixel resolution. It’s fine, but a disappointing downgraded to the P-OLED panel of last year’s model.

A punch-hole on top of it houses a 16-megapixel main camera. While on the back, we also have a 50-megapixel main camera. It might be a downgrade over last year’s 108-megapixel sensor, but this one actually has larger 1.0µm pixels (versus 0.64µm). It only has a dual-camera setup and it’s all you need as the second one is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens that can do macro shots.


As a standard, it has a 5,000mAh battery with Motorola’s 30W TurboPower 30 adapter.

Being a Motorola phone, it ships with the latest Android 13 operating system with the brand’s My UX on top.


The Moto G73 will be available in a few days in Europe for a price of EUR299 (~Php17,800).

Being a cheaper alternative, the Moto G53 is only powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus processor, but with tons of RAM and storage options to fit different budgets. You can get it with either 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage.

The screen was also dropped to an HD+ pixel resolution, a similar 50-megapixel main camera with smaller 0.64µm pixels and no 4K support, while the second camera is only a 2-megapixel macro lens. It also has a slower 10W charger despite having the same 5,000mAh battery.
