Moto G 2015 -53

Motorola is extending the Moto G family with the Moto G Turbo Edition, a souped-up variant that just launched in Mexico.

Moto G Turbo Edition is very similar to the Moto G (2015), which was released in July, with a couple of significant differences: a faster processor and quick charging.

While the Moto G (2015) features the entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, the Moto G Turbo Edition goes a bit more upscale with the Snapdragon 615, the same chip that powers the Moto X Play.

While the Moto G (2015) comes in 1GB RAM/8GB storage and 2GB RAM/16GB storage versions, the Moto G Turbo Edition only comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

Many sites are reporting that the Turbo Edition also comes with an upgraded Full HD display of 5 inches. However, according to the Mexican edition of Xataka.com, that’s not the case: Motorola reached out to inform them that the Moto G Turbo Edition features a 5-inch 720p screen, just like the regular edition.

Moto G Turbo Edition users will get to fast charge their devices thanks to the inclusion of TurboPower, Motorola’s Quick Charge 2-compatible implementation. This feature is not included on the Moto G (2015).

Details are murky for now, but it looks that other specs remained unchanged, including the 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, IP67 certification, and dual-SIM LTE.

In Mexico, the Moto G Turbo Edition will be available from November 13 for 4699 pesos, which is about $280. For comparison, the Moto G (2015) with 2GB and 16GB of storage launched for 4299 pesos ($255), while the base version cost 3699 pesos ($220).

There’s no information on the potential release of the Moto G Turbo Edition in other countries. Motorola launched region-specific variants of its devices in the past, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the Turbo Edition had a limited release.
