The Moto G Pure is a new budget phone with an outdated design
After launching the Moto G50 5G towards the end of August, Motorola is now back with another G series device. The latest addition to the lineup is an affordable phone called the Moto G Pure, and it features budget hardware and an outdated design. Read on to learn more about Motorola’s latest budget offering.

|Specification||Moto G Pure|

|SoC||MediaTek Helio G25|
|RAM & Storage||
|Battery & Charging||
|Security||Rear-mounted fingerprint reader|
|Front Camera(s)||5MP f/2.4|
As you can see in the attached images, the new Moto G Pure looks nothing like the other Moto G series devices launched this year. It features the same design as Motorola devices from last year, with a pill-shaped camera module and a textured back panel. Over on the front, it features huge bezels around the display and a teardrop-style notch at the top for the selfie cameras.
As you’d expect from looking at its design, the Moto G Pure isn’t a powerhouse of a device. It features a 6.5-inch HD+ display backed by a MediaTek Helio G25 chip, 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage. The device has a dual-camera setup on the back, featuring a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor, and a single 5MP selfie shooter on the front.
Thankfully, it does have a substantially large 4,000mAh battery, which, combined with the budget-centric hardware, should deliver excellent battery life. However, charging up the device won’t be that good of an experience, as it only supports 10W wired charging. For connectivity, the Moto G Pure features a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 4G LTE support, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0.
Other noteworthy features include IP52 certification, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a single bottom-firing speaker, and dual microphones. The Moto G Pure runs Android 11 out of the box.
Pricing & Availability
The Moto G Pure will be available for pre-order in the US starting October 14. Motorola will offer the device in a single Deep Indigo color variant. The phone will retail for $159.99 on Best Buy, Walmart, B&H Photo, Amaazon.com, and Motorola’s website. It will also be available through Verizon on the same date. T-Mobile and Metro will offer the device in the coming months.
Motorola says that the Moto G Pure will go on sale in Canada in the coming months, but it hasn’t shared a definite timeline for the same.
