Motorola has just released the 2022 Moto G Stylus, the latest update to the company's budget-friendly smartphone line. Although the new version of the stylus smartphone doesn't change much as far as the general design is concerned, it does bring some desirable hardware upgrades.
Priced at just $299, the 2022 Moto G Stylus fits neatly into the affordable phone market while offering a feature relatively rare at this price point. While other manufacturers offer a stylus as an optional accessory, the Moto G has made a name for itself by bundling the phone with the pen.
Of course, this is not exactly a novelty — Samsung offered a stylus with the Galaxy Note, and it sells an optional accessory for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Needless to say, these phones are miles above Motorola's modest $299 price tag.
As the third iteration of the G Stylus, the new smartphone is preceded by the 2020 version, the 2021 version, and also the refreshed 2021 version with 5G. Although the new model is already available for purchase on Motorola's official website, it will only start shipping on February 17, 2022. The phone comes unlocked and with only a 128GB storage option, so the $299 price tag is static and doesn't change based on configuration.
