Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition to be launched in India on Wednesday
Tweets from Motorola India that were disseminated starting last weekend, indicate that the Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition will be launched in the country this Wednesday. The device supports the Motorola Turbo Power quick charging feature, which requires the use of a special adapter that comes with the phone out of the box. In Turbo mode, the Moto G Turbo Edition will charge the 2470mAh battery at speeds up to 75% faster.

The Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch screen, carrying a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The Snapdragon 615 chipset is under the hood, containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable storage.

The 13MP rear-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.0, allowing you to take pictures even under low-light conditions. The 5MP front-facing camera snaps selfies, and handles video chats. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. With a IP67 certification, the Moto G Turbo Edition can be submerged in over 3 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed. That is a major improvement over the typical protection to light rain and spills that Motorola provides some of its other handsets, through the use of nanocoating technology.

The Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition will sell in India for the equivalent of $283 USD. The device has already been released in Mexico.

Thanks for the tip!

Sweet, although buying this in Australia will probably end up costing me $450

I dunno about that. It may have decent multicore capability, the GPU is rather weak (Adreno 405) and it can get quite hot/throttle under pretty normal usage.

620-based devices will cost much more.

Sd 620 is in different league altogether. It's one notch below 820. 615 is small potatoes.
