Motorola is reported to have unveiled a new variant of its Moto G smartphone in Mexico dubbed as Moto G Turbo Edition.

Its availability details in other regions are still unknown.

The dual-SIM (Micro-SIM card) supporting Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box and features a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 coating. The smartphone packs a octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz, clubbed with Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB RAM.

The Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition houses 16GB of inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded via MicroSD card. In addition, a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture is also included in the handset.


As for connectivity, the Moto G Turbo Edition features all the regular options including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4GHz), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 3G, GPS, and Micro-USB. Since it is IP67-certified, the smartphone is water-resistant as well - which means it can withstand immersion in water of up to 3 feet for 30 minutes.
