Motorola Moto G Turbo unveiled in Mexico; device will be released November 13th

Under the hood, Moto G Turbo Edition buyers are getting a nice upgrade from the Snapdragon 410 SoC that drives the third-gen Moto G. Instead, the Moto G Turbo Edition has a Snapdragon 615 chipset, with an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, with 16GB of expandable storage. The rear-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.0, which means that it can snap quality images even in low-light conditions. The 5MP camera in front handles selfies and video chats.
The 2470mAh battery supports Motorola's Turbo charging, which is probably where the phone got its name. Like the third-gen Moto G, it has an IP certification of X7. This means that you can submerge the phone in up to 3 feet of water, for as long as 30 minutes, without any damage to the handset. This beats out the usual Motorola nano-coating that protects models like the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, and the Motorola DROID MAXX 2, from spills and light rain.
The Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity. Priced at the equivalent of $283 USD, the handset will be available for purchase on November 13th. For now, this puppy is strictly being offered in Mexico only, although that could change at some time in the future.
Thanks for the tip!
But does it have stereo speakers? Also, why now and why Mexico?

Maybe they see that they need to up their game. Put out decent devices at reasonable prices, instead of outting out low end specs for low end price. I don't think anyone would mind paying under 300 usd for a "low end" device with decent specs like this.

That battery life gonna go down with that power hungry chipset. Would have been smarter imo if they went with the 617, I mean it will eventually get QC 3.0 soon. And better performance (8x 1.5Ghz A53 cores)

If Oneplus continue to make more phones like the X and improve thier aftersales support then its end for motorola's budget phones.

No need, since Moto X Play is still better one with bigger display, camera and much much bigger battery.. Only thing missing is the water resistant..

Why does the slide says FullHD and later 1440p? In the article you are saying it has only 1080p
