The Motorola Moto G72 was launched in India on October 3 and now it’s time to make a European tour. The phone will soon be available in selected countries on the old continent at an MSRP of €260 (note: the exact price varies by country, for example in Germany it is €280).
6.6-inch P-OLED display, 1,080 x 2,400 pixels resolution, 120Hz, HDR10+ support
The G72 is built for media consumption with a 6.6-inch P-OLED display (FHD+ resolution, 20:9), a 10-bit panel with HDR10+ support. There are two speakers with Dolby Atmos, Atmos is supported if you plug headphones into the 3.5mm jack.
Dolby Atmos is supported for stereo speakers and headphones plugged into the 3.5mm jack.
The display can run smooth UI at 120Hz, but the Helio G99 isn’t up to 120fps gaming. The 6nm chipset (TSMC) has 2x Cortex-A76 cores (2.2GHz) and 6x A55 (2.0GHz), plus a Mali-G57 MC2 GPU. The chipset is paired with 6 to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of storage (UFS). The phone has a hybrid card slot so you can add more storage or a second phone line.
The Helio G99 supports up to 108 MP cameras and these phones take full advantage of this.

Motorola packs a 108MP sensor with 0.64µm pixels and support for 9-in-1 binning. This camera can record 1080p video at 60fps and can be used to calculate depth information for portraits along with the ultra wide camera. Speaking of which, the ultra-wide camera on board has an 8MP sensor (1.12µm). Next to it is a 2 MP macro camera.

On the front is a 16MP selfie camera (f/2.45, 1.0µm), which can shoot 1080p videos at 30fps. There is also an in-display fingerprint reader on the front.
Whether it’s for long streaming marathons or long gaming sessions, the Moto G72 can last for a while thanks to its 5,000mAh battery. It comes with a 33W charger (technically the phone is at 30W) and a USB-C cable, a protective case, and for some countries there’s even an included headset.
