Mexico gets the Moto G “Turbo Edition” with a faster processor


Motorola today launched the Moto G in Mexico, and the company wanted to do something to spice things up for folks down in that region. They’re calling it the Turbo Edition, and it gets a couple of big upgrades over the original.

For starters, the 5-inch display is being bumped from 720p resolution up to 1080p. That might not sound like much up against all these UHD displays floating around, but it’s a pretty big deal for an affordable phone like the Moto G (and 1080p still looks fantastic at that screen size, to boot).

Motorola is also upping the ante on the chipset, with the Snapdragon 410 transforming into a Snapdragon 615, which has proven to be a pretty capable mid-range chipset. Here’s how the full list looks:

  • Stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Dual Micro SIM slot
  • 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720, 294 ppi) TFT LCD display + Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • 64-bit Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615
  • Adreno 405 GPU
  • 16GB internal storage + microSD slot
  • Rear 13MP f/2.0 camera
  • Front 5MP f/2.2 camera
  • Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 4G LTE/3G HSPA+
  • Others – IP67 Certification
  • 2470mAh battery + Motorola Turbo Power

The device is set to launch in Mexico November 13th and will be around $283. Not a bad deal for a rather capable device from a very reputable manufacturer. Unfortunately Motorola doesn’t seem to be planning to launch this thing anywhere else, so you may have to resort to importing if you want one.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
