Last month, Motorola introduced the Moto G10 and Moto G30 in global markets. The latter came to India recently alongside a more capable Moto G10 Power. Now, it seems that Motorola is gearing up to introduce a new Moto G smartphone and it will be more powerful than anything introduced to the series until today.
The device can be classified as the first Moto G flagship or flagship killer and since it will be placed above any other Moto G device, it will carry Moto G100. According to rumors, this handset will be a rebranded Motorola Edge S with Snapdragon 870 SoC.
Last month, the Moto G100 appeared on the GeekBench benchmark. Its appearance was a solid fact corroborating with rumors about Motorola Edge S rebranding. Today, a new set of press renders emerged revealing the Moto G100 in all its glory. Once again, it is identical to the Edge S, bringing the square-ish camera island in the back.
Moto G100 Specifications:
Since the Motorola Edge S isn’t a new smartphone, we already know everything we can expect from the Moto G100.
Under the hood, the phone will carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC. It’s the first time a Moto G smartphone gets a Snapdragon 8xx series chipset. So enthusiasts of the Moto G-series will have a chance to purchase a handset that will feel like a flagship. In China, the device comes in 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB configurations. We’re not sure if the Moto G100 will get all these variants, but we expect at least the basic and high-tier variants.
The Moto G100 will pack a 6.7-inch LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution. Since this is a cost-effective flagship, Motorola had to cut some corners and we can see that the display was one of the casualties.
This panel has two separate punch-holes that serve as a home for the 16MP and 8MP ultra-wide cameras. Moving around to the back, we a Quad-Camera setup comprising a 64MP primary, 16MP ultrawide, 2MP, and a 3D ToF sensor.
