Motorola has launched a new smartphone for those on a tight budget – meet the new Moto G Pure. The phone packs a 6.5-inch Max Vision HD+ display. It is now common to find such screen sizes on budget phones.
There is an Helio G25 processor inside the phone along with 3GB of RAM. You only get 32GB of storage but there is a MicroSD card slot that can take cards up to 512GB in capacity.
A single 5MP camera sits in front inside the waterdrop notch while the back is home to a dual-camera setup that includes a 13MP f/2.2 primary sensor and a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor. Familiar camera features such as portrait mode, smart composition, and Spot color are available in the camera app.
Alongside the dual cameras on the back, there is also a fingerprint scanner which is a nice addition. You also have the option of using face unlock but that isn’t as secure. Under the plastic body is a 4000mAh battery which Motorola boasts will last up to 2 days on a single charge. Buyers will get a 10W charger in the box.
The Moto G Pure has an IP52 rating and a water-repellent design. There is a USB-C port at the bottom and an audio jack at the top. There is a single SIM card slot (nano), Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band WiFi but no NFC.
Motorola ships the phone with My UX based on Android 11 and it comes with useful features such as three-finger screenshot, flip for DND, lift to unlock, and attentive display to name a few.
