Moto G Pure launched with 6.5-inch HD+ display and Helio G25 SoC

Moto G Pure
After many leaks and rumors, Motorola has just released the Moto G Pure as its cheapest smartphone in the new G-series. The device comes to be even cheaper than those in the Moto E-series. Of course, Motorola’s meaning of “cheap” is different from what we’re used to when looking at the Chinese smartphone market – The device costs $160 in the United States. However, it’s cheaper than the Motorola G Play. Both devices are quite similar, but the company did cut some corners in Pure to make it even cheaper.

Moto G Pure specifications

Under the hood, the Moto G Pure carries MediaTek’s Helio G25. This modest chipset is the lowest offering of the 4G Helio G-series. It’s based on the old 12 nm architecture and brings eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores. We don’t have any Cortex-A7x core nor even more efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores to make this attractive. However, in the end of the day, this chip still can deliver for users that just want a phone for moderate use and basic apps. For comparison, the Moto G Play packs a Snapdragon 460 SoC. This one is based on the 11 nm architecture and has four large ARM Cortex-A73 cores and a faster Adreno 610 GPU.
Moving on, the Moto G Pure comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of Internal Storage. Storage is quite limited, but thankfully, the device has a micro SD slot for further memory expansion. The device draws its powers from a 4,000 mAh battery. The device charges through a USB C port that is limited to 10 W charging with the supplied adapter. According to the company, the battery is big enough to last two days of typical usage.

The Motorola’s budget smartphone ships with Android 11 straight out of the box. If you’re eagerly waiting for Android 12, don’t expect this device to get it before the next year. As usual, Motorola ships the budget handset with a very lightweight Android experience, close to vanilla. Despite the low-end specs, it runs full-fledged Android instead of a Go version.

Just like the G Play, this handset has a plastic body with a basic IP52 rating. The device is 8.7 mm thick and weighs 188 grams. The specifications are built around a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with 1,600 x 720 pixels of resolution. The device has a waterdrop notch housing a 5 MP front-facing camera. Moving around to the back, we have a dual-camera setup with a 13 MP main snapper and a 2 MP depth sensor. The fingerprint scanner also sits at the back and has Motorola’s logo engraved. The phone is available only as a single SIM device. There is a Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The handset will go on pre-order in the US on October 14. The device will sell through the country, but for now, there isn’t a word about global availability.
