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!
