The Moto G52 is a direct successor to the Moto G51, and while it’s not a massive upgrade, it does bring along some key upgrades, namely in the form of a better display and a faster chipset. The Moto G52 flaunts a 6.6-inch pOLED display on the front with a 90Hz refresh rate, a big step up from the Moto G51’s LCD panel. Motorola says a pOLED display is more durable than standard AMOLED/OLED panels and offers slimmer bezels.

The Moto G52 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset, paired with 4GB/6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage. On the back, you get a 50MP primary shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro lens.

While the Motorola packs the same 5,000mAh battery as its predecessor, it now supports faster charging at up to 33W via the included TurboPower charger. On the software side, the phone runs a near-stock version of Android 12 with Motorola’s My UX skin on top. Other noteworthy highlights include dual stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and an IP52 rating.

Pricing & Availability

The Moto G52 comes in two colors: Charcol Grey and Porcelain White. Pricing starts at ₹14,499 (~$189) for the 4GB/64GB model and goes up to ₹15,499 for the 6GB/128GB variant (HDFC bank users can avail ₹1000 off on both models). The phone will go on sale via Flipkart and leading retail stores across India starting May 3.
