Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition debuts in Mexico; Features Full-HD display

Motorola has unveiled the successor to the Moto G 3rd Generation smartphone, the Moto G Turbo Edition in Mexico. Motorola has seen huge success with its Moto G lineup of smartphones which provides good hardware at reasonable price.You get a smartphone which has decent hardware and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.


The Moto G Turbo Edition has some bumped up specs in contrast with the Moto G 3rd Gen smartphone. For instance, the resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels on 5-inch display has been increased to 1920 x 1080 pixels, which means the display is now a Full-HD display.


The processing department has also seen an upgrade. The Moto G 3rd Gen has 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, along with Adreno 306 GPU. Whereas the Moto G Turbo Edition has 64-bit Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, along with Adreno 405 GPU.
