Motorola has just unveiled a new Moto G-series smartphone with 5G connectivity in the Indian market. The company is pushing its portfolio of 5G handsets in the emerging market even though there is still no operational network in the country. Despite this, the competition in India is tough and companies want to be prepared for the boom that the 5G deployment will cause in the market. Some customers also want to be prepared and that’s why the offer of 5G smartphones is expanding. The Moto G71 5G is the latest addition from Motorola and brings a chipset that we don’t see every day. Without further ado, let’s see what this device has in tow.
Moto G71 5G specifications
The Moto G71 5G flaunts a 6.4-inch Full HD+ OLED Display with a 2,400 x 1,080 pixels of resolution. The AMOLED panel, however, does not reach the mid-range market without sacrifices. The device has a standard 60 Hz refresh rate, which is becoming unusual these days. Despite this, the panel is quite bright and has a decent 88.8 percent screen-to-body ratio. There is a center punch-hole for the selfie snapper.
