Of all the brands, it was Motorola who were the first to launch a smartphone with the Snapdragon 870 chipset. The Motorola Edge S that was launched in China back in January featured this higher-clocked Snapdragon 865 chipset. And now, the phone has made its way into the global market under the Moto G100 branding. In this post, we will be taking a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Moto G100 in Nepal.
Moto G100 Overview:
Design and Display
The Moto G100 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ panel with a dual punch-hole cutout. Motorola has gone with an IPS LCD panel here. The aspect ratio here is 21:9. The display has support for a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10 content.
At the back, the square camera module houses the quad-camera setup. You also get the Moto logo beneath it. The fingerprint scanner is mounted on the side. The phone is available in three colors – Iridescent Ocean, Iridescent Sky, and Slate Grey. Moto G100 also has a water repellent design while it lacks an official IP rating.
Performance and Memory
Like I mentioned earlier, the phone is powered by Snapdragon 870 5G chipset. It is based on last year’s Snapdragon 865 with the same process node and architecture. The only difference lies in the Prime core which is now clocked higher at 3.2GHz. It also has 5G connectivity thanks to the Snapdragon X55 modem.
Moto G100 is available with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage on this one. Similarly, the phone ships with My UX based on Android 11 out-of-the-box. As we all know, Motorola is among the few brands that use near-stock Android for their phones. Others include Google and Nokia, both of which have not launched a Snapdragon 800 series phone in a while.
The rear camera setup is led by a 64MP f/1.7 primary camera. There is a 16MP ultrawide sensor with a 117-degree FOV as well. Likewise, it also has a 2MP depth sensor and a Time of Flight sensor. The rear camera setup supports “Audio Zoom” for which you’ll need to zoom in by 2x at least. You can even record from the front and the rear cameras simultaneously.
Similarly, the setup is capable of recording up to 6K/30fps videos. The selfie set up on the front consists of a 16MP primary sensor and an 8MP ultrawide sensor.
Rest of the specs
The phone is fueled by a 5,000mAh battery and features support for 20W fast charging. A compatible charger is also included in the box. It also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack. It is placed along with the Type-C port and the speaker grille on the bottom of the screen. The phone also comes with ThinkShield for mobile technology for business users.
Motorola has even introduced the new “Ready For” platform that lets you connect an external display to the Moto G100. You can increase productivity and multitasking by adding an external desktop-like screen.
