More than a decade ago, Motorola was one of the first companies to make an Android tablet. But the company has largely stayed out of the tablet space in recent years. That changed last year with the launch of a Moto Tab G20 budget tablet for the Indian market, which was later followed up with a mid-range model called the Moto Tab G70.
Now Motorola has launched another model. Meet the Moto Tab G62.
The tablet, which is available in India starting August 17, 2022, features a 10.6 inch, 2000 x 1200 pixel IPS LCD display with a 5:3 aspect ratio and a 60 Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage plus a microSD card reader with support for up to 1TB of removable storage. It ships with Android 12 software.
Other features include quad speakers, a headphone jack and USB Type-C port, a 7,700 mAh battery and support for 20W fast charging. On the back of the tablet there’s an 8MP primary camera plus an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera. And on the front there’s an 8MP fixed-focus camera.
The Moto Tab G62 has a plastic and metal body and a “water-repellent design,” but no IP rating. The tablet measures 251 x 159 x 7.5mm and weighs 465 gram.
Wireless capabilities include WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.2, and BDS/GLONASS/Galileo navigation. While a WiFi-only model seems to be the only version of the tablet available at launch, Motorola is also expected to offer a 4G LTE model in the future.
There’s no word on if or when the Moto Tab G62 will be available outside of India, but it’s currently available in that country for ₹15,999 ($200), which is said to be 44% off the retail price of ₹29,000 ($365).
