Motorola has decided to make some changes to its third-generation Moto G handset and as a result, has unveiled the phone’s Turbo Edition. So far, the device has only been showcased in Mexico, meaning that it will take some time to arrive in other nations.
There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset inside it, instead of a Snapdragon 410 model which forms part of the original model. This means buyers will be getting octa core processing rather than quad core. The Moto G Turbo Edition has been equipped with the same-sized 5-inch display alright, but its resolution has been bumped up to 1080p full HD.
This dual SIM 4G LTE device from Motorola has been blessed with IP67 certification, and runs the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS. We’re not sure why its makers have decided against it running Marshmallow out of the box, but it’s certain that an update is on the cards.
The Turbo Edition carries the same 2470mAh battery which the third-gen Moto G works on. The camera setup remains unchanged as well. Unlike the original model though, there will be just one option in the form of a 2GB RAM device bearing 16GB of storage space and a microSD card slot.
A short look at the specs of the Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition:
– Display: 5-inch, 1080p full HD
– OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
– Processor: Octa core Snapdragon 615
– GPU: Areno 405
– Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB storage (expandable)

According to The Gadgets Freak, the Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition will be made available in Mexico from November 13 onward at an equivalent price of $283. There’s no word on if or when the phone will be released in other markets from around the globe.
