The Moto G32 has officially launched in India as an affordable budget smartphone under Rs 15,000. The G32 has a lot in common with the Moto G52 which launched earlier this year but its real nemesis is the Redmi Note 11 which is also powered by the same Snapdragon 680 chip inside. Here’s how the two phones compare based on their pricing and specifications.

Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Pricing

The Moto G32 is priced at Rs 12,999 for the sole 4GB+64GB model and the base variant of the Redmi Note 11 (4GB+64GB) is also selling at Rs 12,999 in India. The Redmi Note 11 is also available with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage at Rs 13,499 and 6GB+128GB storage at Rs 15,999. 


Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Design and Display

Being affordable budget phones, both the Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 have a plastic build. The G32 measures 8.5mm and weighs 184 grams while the Note 11 is thinner at 8.1mm and lighter at 179 grams. The Moto G32 is IP52 rated which makes it water-repellent while Note 11 is IP53 certified making it resistant to dust and water splashes.


The Moto G32 is being offered in two colours: Mineral Grey and Satin Silver. The Redmi Note 11 is available in three colours: Horizon Blue, Space Black and Starburst White.

The Moto G32 features a 6.5-inch display that offers Full HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate support. Meanwhile, the Redmi Note 11 has a slightly smaller display at 6.43-inch but it uses an AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and is topped with Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection.


Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Under the hood

The Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 both are powered by the Snapdragon 680 chip which has an octa-core CPU and is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage in the case of the G32 and upto 6GB+128GB storage for the Redmi Note 11. The Snapdragon 680 is a capable processor for daily use but doesn’t perform as great when it comes to gaming. Another drawback of the chip is that it doesn’t support 5G connectivity which is all set to launch later this year in India. 

Like all Moto phones, the G32 runs on stock Android 12 with My UX customizations while the Redmi Note 11 runs on MIUI 13 which is based on Android 12. Both phones also support memory expansion via micro SD card wherein the Moto G32 uses the second SIM slot but Note 11 has a dedicated slot.


Both the Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 have stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack but the one on Note 11 supports HiRes audio playback. We also get Bluetooth 5.2 on the G32 and Bluetooth 5.0 with the Note 11. The power button doubles up as a fingerprint reader on the G32 and the Note 11. 

Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Battery

The Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 both have a 5,000mAh battery to boot. The G32 supports 30W fast charging while Note 11 supports 33W fast charging out-of-the-box. 


Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Cameras

The Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 have similar cameras. The G32 has a triple camera stack while Note 11 has quad cameras on the back. There is a 50MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with 118-degree FOV and a 2MP macro camera. In the case of the Redmi Note 11, there’s an additional 2MP depth sensor. On the front, the G32 has a 16MP selfie camera while Note 11 has a 13MP sensor. Both phones can record in 1080p at 30FPS. You can expect similar camera quality and capabilities from both phones but we’ll have to test out the cameras on the G32 to come up with a conclusive verdict.

Moto G32 vs Redmi Note 11: Early thoughts

Since both the Moto G32 and the Redmi Note 11 are powered by the same Snapdragon 680 chip, there’s little difference in their performance metrics. However, the Redmi Note 11 has an upper hand with features such as an AMOLED display, Gorilla Glass protection, multiple storage variants on offer, HiRes audio support and slightly faster-charging speeds.
