Moto G Turbo Goes On Sale In India For $217December 10, 2015
Moto G is already probably the most trustworthy phone in India and everywhere else in the world. If someone is confused with which phone to buy, I just tell ’em to pick-up Moto G blindly. It is that good. But if you’re reading this from India and planning to buy Moto G already, better hold on and read this piece.
A better version of Moto G, named Moto G Turbo, which was launched in Brazil few weeks back is making a debut in India today. This is what everything is different between two phones. First and the major difference is Moto G Turbo is IP67 rated for being waterproof and dust resistant; unlike Moto G which is IP7 rated for being just waterproof. Next, the processor, Snapdragon 410 has been replaced by the more powerful Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. However, RAM stays the same at 2GB. And since it packs TurboCharging with the in-box TurboCharger that refills the battery with 6 hours of usage in just 15 mins, there’s that Turbo moniker. The battery capacity is same 2,470 mAh, but now it gets charged faster. Everything else remains the same. Moto G Turbo has got the same 5 inch 720p HD display, 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, dual SIM support with 4G LTE connectivity.
Of course, the price has been increased. The Moto G Turo will cost INR 14,499 (~$217). As usual, it’ll be available only on Flipkart. For comparison, 1GB model of old Moto G would cost INR 11,999 and INR 12,999 for 2GB one. But it still remains a good choice in the segment if you’re not willing to spend more for Moto G Turbo.
