The Moto G42 will look similar to other recent Motorola handsets. This means that at the front will be a full-screen display with a centered punch hole notch and a sizeable chin. The back panel of the device will house the tripler-rear camera set up inside a rectangular camera module which will reside in the top left corner.

The right edge of the Moto G42 will make room for volume rockers and the power button. The power button might double as the fingerprint scanner. The left edge will house the SIM-card tray. Whereas, along the bottom edge will be a Type-C port, the speaker grille, and the primary microphone.

Apart from it, these listings do not reveal anything about the upcoming Moto G42. However, we can expect the handset to come with some improvements compared to its predecessor.
