Rumor | The Motorola Moto G Pure will launch with "2-day battery", a low-end MediaTek SoC and a ~US$300 price-point

Motorola has been said to have a new member of the Moto G series called the Pure nearly ready for launch. Now, new leaks purport to confirm this product name, as well as some pertinent specs for the device. They include a fairly generous "ultrawide" display, a MediaTek Helio processor and a battery rated to last up to 48 hours.

Motorola is currently rumored to bring the Pure sub-brand back, porting it to the Moto G series this time around. The name may give the impression of stripped-down specs for an essential smartphone experience, something that, as it happens, is reinforced in its latest leaks - with one important outlying detail.

The alleged "Moto G Pure" now has some pre-launch renders, courtesy of OnLeaks, a renowned leaker who has premiered a partnership with his latest blog-partner Zouton with high-quality 360-degree images and videos of the purported upcoming Motorola phone.

They may reveal that the G Pure does indeed have a very simple design common to its series, with a smooth, probably plastic back uninterrupted by nothing more than an OEM logo that may or may not also house a fingerprint sensor, and a relatively restrained camera hump for no more than 2 lenses.

OnLeaks and Zouton also now assert that the display shown is a 6.5-inch AMOLED panel. According to a subsequent, possibly official, leak from Evan Blass, this screen just might have one of Motorola's 21:9 aspect ratios. Blass' potential marketing material also shows the Electric Graphite (or gray) colorway specified in the G Pure's other new leak.

In fact, Zouton's article on the subject suggests that the phone gets only 1 other Lagoon Green option. The G Pure is also now slated to ship with a battery that, despite its alleged new "2-day" duration, is only 4,000mAh in capacity.

It is also now touted to keep a Helio G25 processor on in the Moto G Pure. Finally, the leakers claim that this device will be on shelves in the US and Canada by about mid-October 2021, at a cost that could go from US$300 up to $350.

Other phones with the same processor have launched for about a third of those prices and often with larger batteries: hopefully, the G Pure's alleged display specs will make sense of its putative starting price.
