The first generation of smartphones in Motorola’s Moto G series was unveiled in 2013, and the phone easily rose to become the company’s best-selling smartphone ever.
Both the 2nd and 3rd gen phones featured the respective specs of 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 chipset, and sold for a cheap price, making them quite popular in the smartphone market for consumers looking for a low budget Android smartphone without missing much on the Android experience.
The newest member in the Moto G lineup, known as the Moto G Turbo Edition, is even better and was officially launched yesterday in Mexico.
The handset features a 5-inch display with CGG (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) like the 2nd and 3rd gen models, but unlike its predecessors, it supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution which gives it a pixel density score of approximately 440 pixels per inch.
The Moto G Turbo Edition also runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box which can be upgraded to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
Powering this device is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 Octa-core processor (four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.0GHz) alongside Adreno 405 GPU which is backed by 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
16GB of internal storage is on-board this mid-range smartphone, which is expandable via a Micro-SD card and comes with a 2470mAh non-removable battery which supports Motorola’s quick charging feature.
Camera-wise, the Turbo sports a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture to take quality pictures even in low light conditions, and a 5MP front shooter with f/2.2 aperture.
The phone also has an IP67 certification for water resistance, which means that it can withstand being immersed in up to a meter of water for up to 30 minutes without any damage to the device.
The Moto G Turbo Edition is a Dual-SIM smartphone and it has support for connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 402.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth Ver.4.0 LE (low energy).
Presently, the device has a $283 price tag and will be available for purchase in Mexico starting from November 13th.
For now, the device is exclusive to Mexico and Motorola has not said anything about availability options in other countries, but we will be sure to update you if we find out more.
