The Motorola Moto G100 has finally debuted globally, weeks after being a part of the rumour mill. The phone carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and triple cameras at the back paired with a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor to enable AR functionalities. In terms of appearance and other features, the phone looks to be a rebranded version of Moto Edge S that launched in China in January 2021. The new Moto G100 debuted for the global markets, and the Lenovo-owned company notes that the availability of the device will vary by region. Its India-specific availability details remain unclear at the moment.
In terms of design, the front panel of the Moto G100 has narrow bezels on all sides with two independent hole-punch cutouts for the dual-selfie cameras. At the back, the triple cameras plus ToF sensors sit inside a square-shaped module. The smartphone sports a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,520 pixels) display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, 90Hz refresh rate, and HDR10 support. The front panel comes with 85 percent screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood, it packs the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, coupled with Adreno 650 GPU and up to 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The smartphone runs on Android 11 with MyUI on top and supports dual-SIM cards.
Its rear camera setup includes a 64-megapixel primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with 120-degree field-of-view (FoV), and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s also a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor to enable 3D imaging and enhance the AR experience. The Motorola Edge S comes with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens for selfies and video calling.
