Moto G100 price (expected)
As per the listing on Spanish retailer Paratupc’s website, a Motorola phone with model number XT2125 and 8GB RAM + 128GB storage is priced at EUR 479.77 (roughly Rs. 41,400). It is listed in a blue colour variant. This model number is said to belong to the Moto G100 that is believed to be the global version of the Motorola Edge S that launched in China in January. The Spanish retailer website listing was first spotted by 91Mobiles.
The Motorola Edge S is priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 22,600) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, CNY 2,399 (roughly Rs. 27,000) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option, and CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 31,600) for the 8GB + 256GB storage model. Comparing the converted INR prices for the 8GB + 128GB variants of the two devices, the Moto G100 seems to be priced a lot higher in the European market. However, that is usually the case, and the Indian price of the phone is expected to be lesser than the European price.
Motorola recently shared that it will be hosting a launch event on March 25, and while it did not reveal what it will be unveiling, it is believed to be the global launch of the Moto G100.
Moto G100 specifications (expected)
If the Moto G100 turns out to be the global version of the Motorola Edge S, the specifications are quite clear. The phone may feature a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,520 pixels) display with 90Hz refresh rate. It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 870 SoC and have a USB Type-C port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Moto G100 is said to have a quad rear camera setup headlined by a 64-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter, a 2-megapixel depth sensor, and a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor. On the front, the Moto G100 could come with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens.
It may have up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage with connectivity options including 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC. In terms of battery, the Moto G100 could come with a 5,000mAh battery that supports 20W fast charging.
