In a sign that new technologies are becoming more affordable than ever, Motorola has announced its latest budget-friendly phone, the Moto G54 5G. As the name suggests, this phone includes 5G connectivity, but it’s the sub-$300 price point that sets this phone apart.
5G compatibility was originally only available in more expensive phones, but gradually started popping up in devices around $400. Now, with the $299 AUD price tag of the Moto G54 5G, future-proofing your device is more budget-friendly than ever.
“As we continue on our journey of delivering smarter technology for Australians at more affordable prices, today we are excited to be launching our first sub-$300 5G smartphone,” said Kurt Bonnici, Head of Motorola Greater Asia Pacific.
“Motorola’s Moto G range is renowned for making premium technology more accessible to consumers, and the new Moto G54 5G is no exception.”
Not only does this new budget phone include 5G connectivity, but you’ll get some pretty impressive features packed in. Read on to find out more.

Motorola Moto G54 5G features and specs
The Motorola Moto G54 5G includes a 6.5-inch HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate, along with Dolby Atmos sound and Motorola’s Spatial Sound to deliver a great experience with its built-in stereo speakers.
To back up the 5G connectivity, there’s a MediaTek Dimensity 7020 octa-core processor with fast download speeds, for a quicker experience. With a powerful performance, you’ll also want a big battery to keep up with your needs. Luckily the Moto G54 5G includes a 5,000mAh battery with up to 15W fast charging (and a 20W fast charger is included in the box).
Motorola has also packed in a pretty decent camera setup, with a 50-megapixel main camera and 2-megapixel macro lens, along with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. The main 50MP lens includes Optical Image Stabilisation to help fight blurry images caused by taking photos with shaky hands. It also features Quad Pixel technology, so you’ll also get sharper and more vibrant images in lower light conditions.
The Motorola Moto G54 5G also includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, with up to 1TB of expandable micro SD storage. You’ll also have a choice of two colours (although colour availability may depend on the retailer) — Midnight Blue with a matte finish, and Indigo Blue with a vegan leather finish (which is stunning to look at and soft to touch, like the finish on the Motorola Edge 40).
You can pick up the Motorola Moto G54 5G for $299 AUD RRP from retailers including The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, Big W and Bing Lee. It’s also available online from the Motorola online store and Amazon. Optus will also eventually be stocking the device.
