Motorola has unveiled the cheapest Moto G-series (2021) smartphone named Moto G Pure. It is a budget smartphone with specs and features comparable to the Moto G Play (2021). But since the Pure is even more affordable than the Play version, there are surely some compromises you will have to be okay with.
The Moto G Pure sports a 6.5-inch HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels) IPS LCD display with a dew-drop notch. The choice of processor is MediaTek's Helio G25 available with PowerVR GE8320 GPU but one should not expect commendable performance in this price range. There is a single configuration featuring 3GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage. And yes, the phone supports microSD cards for storage expansion.
There is a dual rear camera setup featuring a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The selfie shooter is a 5-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 aperture and housed within the notch. The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery and supports 10W charging. The phone will boot Android 11 out of the box.
Motorola has priced the Moto G Pure at $159.99 for the sole 3GB/32GB configuration. It will go on pre-orders starting October 14th with availability via Amazon, BestBuy, Walmart, and B&H Photo. The phone will be free if you choose a 24-30 month contract with any of the supported carriers.
