Motorola Announces Moto G100 and G50 Phones
Motorola has unveiled its Moto G100 phone, which is powered by the Snapdragon 870 5G and has Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, as well as the cheaper Moto G50.
The Moto G100 has a 6.7” CinemaVision display with 21:9 dimensions, HDR10, and a 90Hz refresh rate. Inside, it has a 5,000mAh battery as well as up to 12 GB of memory (depending on country), 128GB of storage, and up to 1TB of additional storage via microSD.
Camera-wise, there’s a 64 MP main camera with Quad Pixel technology, 16MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP depth sensor, and ToF scanner at the rear, while the front has a 16MP camera along with an 8MP ultra-wide camera. The phone features a new Dual Capture mode in addition to Macro Vision with built-in ring light.
Other features include Audio Zoom to filter out ambient noise when capturing audio and Ready For, a platform that is said to boost the phone’s capabilities. “Move your phone’s games to the big screen for a huge boost of adrenaline. Or feel like you’re right in the room during video calls thanks to our industry-first mobile experience that lets users activate advanced subject tracking when calling & recording. And use your apps on a desktop display, giving you more space to work and play. These are just a few of the ways to use Ready For, and the potential for more are on the way,” says Motorola’s press release.
