Photo Announcement. Motorola Moto G13 is an inexpensive smartphone based on a three-year-old chipset

Motorola has officially unveiled its moderately simple smartphone called Moto G13.

Nothing extraordinary happened. All early leaks have been confirmed. Matched both pictures and dimensions. In short, everything matched. The only thing in the leaks was about slightly accelerated charging - 20 watts. The official specifications for Europe indicate 10 watts. But, however, with the clarification that, they say, "depends on the market."


The chipset is very familiar to us, it is MediaTek Helio G85 from 2020. So there is no support for 5G networks, but in AnTuTu we expect 200-250 thousand points. Sparsely.

Memory. 4 GB RAM, 128 GB permanent (plus support for memory cards). With a high probability, in some countries the 4+64 GB version will also be on sale.

A screen with a slightly raised (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate, but otherwise quite simple. Diagonal 6.5" (102 cm²), resolution 720x1600 (270 ppi).

The battery is standard good, 5000 mAh.

The set of cameras is trivial. 8 MP front, 50+2+2 MP rear. As the main sensor with a probability of 95%, the simplest fifty kopecks available on the market Samsung ISOCELL JN1.

Other. There is an NFC module, a side fingerprint scanner, a fifth Wi-Fi, Type-C.

At the start of sales in Germany, Motorola Moto G13 will cost €179.99 (₽13500, $196) for the 4+128 GB version. Most likely, in other European countries the price will be similar.
