Back when Motorola officially unveiled 2015’s iteration of the Moto G, some were disappointed that it shares the same processor and display resolution as last year’s model. Now, the company has unveiled the Moto G Turbo in Mexico, a beefier version of the Moto G.
Unlike the regular Moto G, the Turbo variant is equipped with a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, an upgrade over the Snapdragon 410 chipset powering the former. Other than that, the Moto G Turbo now has a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display, which should look sharper than the regular variant’s 720p panel.
Other specifications of the Moto G Turbo include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, LTE connectivity, water resistance rating of IP67, and a 2,470mAh battery with support for Motorola Turbo Power – presumably the company’s version of fast charging. The Moto G Turbo also has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
At the time of writing, the Motorola Moto G Turbo will only be available in Mexico on 13th November for about US$283 (approximately RM1,220). Hopefully, it would make its way to other markets sometime in the future.
