The Moto G42 brings a slightly different design than its predecessor, the Moto G41 launched in November last year. The phone has a punch-hole design with slim bezels on the sides and top, and a tad thick bottom bezel. At the rear, the smartphone has a square camera module on the top-left corner, which houses the three lenses and the dual LED-flash unit.

On the right side, the Moto G42 gets the volume rocker and the power button, which also doubles as a fingerprint sensor. The smartphone has a 6.5-inch full HD+ MaxVision OLED display with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The phone's predecessor, the Moto G41, offers a slightly smaller 6.4-inch full HD+ OLED screen.
