The Moto G Power (2022) will cost $199 for the base model with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The upgraded model with 128GB of storage and the same RAM count will cost $249.

In the United States, you’ll be able to buy it first at Metro by T-Mobile and Republic Wireless. However, Motorola did not give an exact date for this rollout other than “in the coming months.” It’s unlikely it will launch before 2022 begins, though.

Eventually, it will make its way to Verizon, Boost Mobile, Xfinity Mobile, AT&T, Cricket, US Cellular, and Google Fi. It will also eventually be available in unlocked form from Motorola and third-party retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy.

As for our neighbors in Canada, Motorola committed to launching the Moto G Power (2022) there but had no pricing or availability information yet.
