Recent leaks have pointed to the possibility of a new S variant for the Moto G60 to be launched in 2021. Now, Motorola has made good on these rumors by unleashing this phone on its first market: Brazil. It has a 120Hz FHD LCD display, 6GB of RAM and unusually fast charging for a phone from this OEM.

Some leaks have dangled the prospect of a new Motorola Moto G60 version to be launched in 2021. Now, these tips have become a reality, as the OEM has indeed announced it in one of its most successful markets, Brazil.

The G60s looks a lot like its forebear, as it has the exact same high-refresh-rate display and nearly the same chassis, 3.5mm jack and all. However, this new variant comes with a MediaTek Helio G95 rather than the original G60's Snapdragon 732G, ensuring that the 2 remain in roughly the same 4G/LTE-only mid-range bracket.

On the other hand, the G60s gets a spec rare to phones of its brand: 50W TurboPower charging, whereas even the more premium Edge 20 Pro only gets a 30W standard. On the other hand, a G60s customer might be making compromises in some other ways.

For a start, despite its advanced charging tech, the newer model inexplicably drops the G60's generous 6,000mAh battery for a more usual 5,000mAh power-pack (probably so the OEM can claim it derives a day's worth of power from just 12 minutes of charging).

Furthermore, the slightly older phone might have triple rear cameras, but one is a 108MP shooter. The G60s makes do with a 64+8+5+2MP array instead.

Brazilian Motorola fans that are still interested in the new offering's better aspects can pick one up in either dark blue or mint green. The Moto G60s can be ordered from now for 2,249.10 Brazilian real (~US$430). Motorola has yet to mention more widespread availability for the new 2021 refresh.
