Back in the last month, Motorola introduced the Moto G 5G, the second smartphone in the G series to come with fifth-gen network support. The device reached Europe as the cheapest 5G smartphone available. There are plenty of affordable 5G phones in China, but so far none has made way to Europe. Motorola teased the Moto G 5G arrival in India last week, and today the device is finally official in the country. The handset will retail for INR 20,999 ($204) and actual sales will start on December 7. Worth noting that HDFC bank card owners can get an additional INR 1,000 discount.
MOTO G 5G SPECIFICATIONS
Under the hood, the Moto G 5G brings the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC, this is a new chipset that is growing in popularity. It’s an octa-chipset that consists in 2x Cortex-A77 cores plus 6x Cortex-A55 power-efficient cores (2×2.2 GHz Kryo 570 & 6×1.8 GHz Kryo 570). It’s a powerful chipset that only loses for its bigger brother Snapdragon 765G. The phone is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of Internal Storage. The graphical tasks are ensured by an Adreno 619 GPU.
The specifications come around a 6.7-inch Full HD+ LCD with a center-aligned punch hole housing the selfie snapper. Moving around to the back we have a Squareish camera module comprising four shooters. The primary is a 48MP camera that comes alongside an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP macro sensor. Selfies are taken by a 16 selfie snapper.
On the rear, we also have the traditional Motorola logo that also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The phone draws power from a 5,000mAh battery that charges over a USB-C port with a 20W fast-chargin. This isn’t the fastest standard available but still is better than the 10W of the Moto E7 series. The phone comes with a vanilla-like Android 10 build. Despite the use of a vanilla Android with a few small changes, Motorola couldn’t ship this phone with Android 11.
