The Motorola Moto G53 was introduced a few weeks ago as a cheap 5G cell phone. According to a new entry in the Google Play Console, the Motorola Moto G53s 5G is the next attempt to position an affordable 5G device on the market. The listing doesn’t reveal too much, but it does contain some technical data.
The Motorola phone is powered by the Qualcomm SM4350 chipset, the internal code of the Snapdragon 480. Not the 480+ that the G53 uses, but the slightly older variant that still has two Cortex-A76 cores with slightly lower clock speeds and six Cortex -A55 cores. The Adreno 619 GPU is identical, as is the image processor and the integrated X51 5G modem.
The Google Play Console specifies the display resolution of the Moto G53s 5G as 720 x 1,600 pixels – the same as the normal G53. Hopefully that means the 120Hz refresh rate will also be adopted. The device listed in the Google Play Console appears to have 4GB of RAM. But there could also be a 6GB or even an 8GB variant, just like the regular G53.
The GPC does not reveal any information about the battery capacity. But the regular G53 offers 5,000 mAh, that charge at a very slow 10 watts in the global version. If you assume that the Moto G53s 5G also takes over the cameras from the G53, we will get a 2 megapixel macro sensor in addition to the 50 megapixel main camera. Depending on the region, an 8 or 16 megapixel front camera snaps selfies.
