Even more expansion of Motorola’s ever-expanding mid-range G line is imminent. The Moto G42, which was released in press renders earlier this month, is one of the upcoming models. An further piece to the puzzle has been added to the phone’s certification by a number of regulatory authorities.
A Moto G42 prototype ran Geekbench 5, and those results are now available to the entire world in the benchmark’s public database, as is customary practise. That’s not all, however; there are also a few more significant specifications.
Specifically, we now know that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 is powering the gadget. In this case, the prototype had 4GB of RAM, although a 6GB version is possible. The G42 achieved a single-core score of 376 and a multi-core score of 1,538. This is a prototype, after all, so don’t worry too much about the details at this point.
The Moto G42 is clearly the successor of the G41, which was announced in November but just launched in January – Motorola’s launch time periods are getting very strange. It’s safe to assume that the G42 will have an AMOLED display and come pre-installed with Android 12.
