Full Story

Well, well, well, less than a day had passed, and Motorola’s already throwing curveballs our way. They teased us with a cryptic “Unleash The Beast” tagline, hinting at the Moto G64 5G’s arrival. Then, bam! They just went ahead and dropped the phone on social media. Talk about unconventional, right?

Now, don’t get it twisted. This isn’t your regular, run-of-the-mill product launch. Nope. It’s more like a sneak peek, a teaser to get us all riled up for the official debut slated for April 16 in India. Will it hit other markets? Maybe. But as of now, it’s all a bit hush-hush.

So, what’s the scoop on this bad boy? For starters, it’s rocking a MediaTek Dimensity 7025 processor. “Exceptionally power-efficient” is the word on the street, promising “high speeds everywhere.” Though, let’s be real, that’s tech jargon for “it’s a pretty solid chip.” It’s a 6nm deal with an octa-core CPU, clocking in at a nifty 2.5GHz.

Don’t expect it to throw punches with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, though. That’s a heavyweight bout it’s not ready for. But, for an (upper) mid-ranger, the Dimensity 7025 could give some serious competition, even to the Snapdragon 7 series, in both performance and not guzzling battery life like there’s no tomorrow.

Speaking of battery, this thing’s got a tank—6,000mAh, to be exact. That’s not just big; it’s colossal, promising to keep you going long after most phones have tapped out. And it’s not just for budget 5G phones. This could very well outlast the crème de la crème of Android devices.

Flipkart’s already hyping it up with a webpage, teasing that this “beast” will support 33W fast charging. And guess what? They’re actually throwing in a 33-watt TurboPower charger in the box. A rare move nowadays, wouldn’t you say?

But wait, there’s more! The Moto G64 5G isn’t just about lasting forever and charging fast. It’s got a display that’s pretty much a gamer’s dream. We’re talking a 6.5-inch FHD+ screen, with a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling. And because games are memory hogs, Motorola’s not skimping on RAM. Up to 12GB, with the option to virtually expand it to a whopping 24GB, if you’ve got the storage space.

Despite all that power, it’s still a featherweight champion, tipping the scales at 192 grams and measuring a slim 8.89mm. Makes you wonder why you’d need a conventional high-end Android, right? Especially when this one’s packing a solid 50MP OIS camera setup, complete with an 8MP ultra-wide and another 8MP for macro and depth shots.

The only potential bummer? Software updates. Motorola’s promising just one major OS update post-Android 14 and three years of security patches. But if the price is right, that might not be a dealbreaker for many.

With the Moto G84 5G also making waves, especially at a sweet price point of around $275 in India, Motorola’s looking to dominate the value segment. Let’s hold off on judgment until April 16, though. Patience is a virtue, after all.

Switching gears a bit, let’s talk about Adrian. This guy’s been knee-deep in mobile tech since the days of the Nokia 3310. From Android Authority to Digital Trends and now PhoneArena, he’s seen it all. Despite juggling parenthood and a passion for tech, he’s still all in, especially when it comes to mid-range smartphones. His collection’s as diverse as his interests, saved from bankruptcy by his knack for spotting a good deal.
