Motorola has launched a new smartphone to the global market. It isn’t necessary a “new” smartphone. The Moto G100 is very much identical to the Motorola Edge S which was released in China two months ago.
The Moto G100 is built around the same 6.7″ IPS LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate. The panel is HDR10 certified and also features FHD+ resolution. On the top-left corner of the display is two punch-holes, which hosts two selfie cam – a 16MP main lens and an 8MP ultrawide lens.
The square-shaped rear camera module of the G100 consists of a 64MP main unit with f/1.7 aperture, a 16MP ultrawide unit, a 2MP fixed focus depth unit and a ToF unit. The ultrawide snapper has a ring LED flash which also serves as a macro camera for taking close-up shots.
Handling the software area of the Moto phone is the Android 11 operating system with Motorola’s stock UI – My UX on top of it. An interesting feature of this UI is the “Ready For” platform. This changes the interface into a desktop-like one once connected to either a TV or monitor. For the hardware, the Moto G100 uses the Snapdragon 870 SoC and is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage.
The battery capacity is at 5,000 mAh with a 20W wired fast charging. No official IP rating, but the device has a water repellent coating. It has NFC connectivity as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The body colour options are different from Edge S in China. The Moto G100 comes in Iridescent Ocean and Slate Grey and Iridescent Sky body colours. The device is priced €499.99/£449.9 and will be available in European and selected Latin American markets.
