The Motorola Moto G100 offers a near-flagship experience with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, a 5,000 mAh battery, a 6.7-inch display and an ultra-wide-angle selfie camera
Motorola has launched the Moto G100, the new flagship in its G series. Arguably, the Moto G100 would have been a flagship smartphone last year, as it relies on the Snapdragon 870, effectively a Snapdragon 865+with a slightly overclocked Prime core. The Moto G100 has 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage, adding to its flagship-level specifications. Better still, Motorola has included expandable storage, a feature that has all been removed from modern flagships save for those produced by LG.
Additionally, the Moto G100 has a 6.7-inch IPS display that resolves at 2,120 x 1,080 pixels and with a peak 90 Hz refresh rate. Motorola has interrupted this large display with two punch holes that contain a 16 MP main camera and an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor. There are three rear-facing cameras too, of which a 64 MP sensor is the primary. It may look like the Moto G100 has four rear-facing cameras, but the array houses a 16 MP ultra-wide, a depth camera and a ToF sensor that supports laser autofocus.
A 5,000 mAh battery powers the Moto G100, which you can also connect to an external monitor to enable a desktop mode, like Huawei, LG and Samsung do with their smartphones. If the Moto G100 did not have enough features already, Motorola has included a 3.5 mm headphone jack too, along with a fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM connectivity and a USB Type-C port that supports up to 20 W fast charging.
The Moto G100 will be available in Iridescent Ocean and Iridescent Sky from €499.99 in the Eurozone and £449.99 in the UK. According to an Amazon Germany listing, Motorola will begin shipping the Moto G100 on April 20, 2021.
