As revealed earlier, Motorola has unveiled its Moto G Turbo Edition smartphone in India on December 10. The company has priced the device at Rs. 14,499 and further announced that the handset goes on for sale on the same day exclusively at Flipkart, starting from 12:00 PM IST. Like its sibling, Moto G 3rd Gen, the handset will also be available in Black and White colour variants.
With the all new Moto G Turbo, Flipkart offers free Airtel double data to each buyer and 100 percent cash back to 100 of its customers, while an off up to Rs.6000 is also offered with an exchange of old smartphone.
It is assumed that Motorola is trying to fill the large gap of specs between the Moto G3 and Moto X Play.
Water and Dust Resistant
With the new Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition, the users can relax with the handset in a pool or a beach-side, as it is an IP67 certified smartphone, which means that it is water and dust resistant.
The IP67 certification allows to submerge the handset into the static water of up to 1 metre for half an hour without any worry of damage. However, the Moto G (3rd gen) comes with IPX7, which means it has not been tested against dust resistance.
Also, the water resistance doesn’t enable users to take the phone in the salted sea water, tt will definitely harm the device. But after an accidental splash into a puddle or sink, just dry off your phone and keep going.
The Moto G Turbo Edition is a more rugged version of the Moto G3 smartphone, which was launched in India earlier this year. It is powered by a faster Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, which is coupled with 2GB of RAM, unlike the Snapdragon 410 processor in the Moto G3.
The device is fast and lag-free, whether you’re playing 3D games or multitasking between apps. This phone runs on the Android Lollipop v5.1.1 operating system. While, the Moto G3 was baked by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, however, 2GB RAM option also available with a 16GB model.
The Turbo Edition also offers 16GB of internal storage with an expandability option up to 32GB by using a microSD card.
This smartphone is fueled with a 2470 mAh of battery that packs enough juice to last through the day. However, if you still run out of battery, TurboCharge gives you up to 6 hours of usage from just 15 minutes of charging.
Motorola claims that the battery is designed to last a full day, but we will have to test that out to come to a conclusion.
Quick Capture Camera
The handset sports a 13-megapixel of primary image shooting tool that is featured with AF, f/2.0, a 76-degree field of view (FOV), and also packs in a dual tone, dual-LED flash. The company revealed that the rear camera supports 4X digital zoom, and is capable of shooting 1080p Full HD video at 30 fps, slow motion video, iHDR Video, Auto HDR and even offers video stabilisation.
Also, a 5-megapixel Fixed Focus user-facing camera is placed up front. With a f/2.2 aperture and 72-degree field of view, the picture snapper allows the users to take decent selfies. However, the detailed quality measures can’t be revealed till a hands-on review.
Motorola has packed in a 5-inch HD IPS display with the handset that delivers 1280 x 720 pixels of screen resolution and a pixel density of 294 ppi. It also comes with a Gorilla Glass 3 protection that protects the display panel from breakage.
It is the same display which was previously offered with the Moto G 3rd generation smartphone and it seemed perfect for the hardware at first glance, however, a pentile matrix pattern in the areas was noticed that lit up in white.
Still then, it is a great display that is bright enough both indoors and outdoors.
