First rumors of a Moto G Forte version have to spread starting last week and we have all believed just one thing: that we are taking about a more rugged version of this device, this time destined for Latin America only. Anyway, Moto G Forte has already become available to purchase via Nextel Mexico, but don’t get your hopes too high. Unfortunately, we are only talking about the same Motorola Moto G coming with a rugged Grip Shell case pre-installed and nothing more than that.
Not a Ruggedized Moto G Forte
And don’t leave aside the fact that the Grip Shell case is available for any other Motorola Moto G owner who wants to buy it for its own device already. This Grip Shell seems to be ideal when it comes to offering “extra grip and protection against impact”, so it is obviously that the Moto G Forte version will be indeed more durable, but we are still slightly disappointed about the fact that we are not talking about an actual ruggedized Moto G.
Unchanged Specs and Features
Moreover, we cannot explain why Motorola considered that this device requires an added name to the initial Moto G. Practically, there are no changes when it comes to the specs and features that we already knew, this Moto G Forte being just as the original version; to be more precise, it has a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 5MP rear camera, as well as a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and running on Android 4.4 KitKat OS version.
The G Forte seems to be targeted at Latin America, being only available at Nextel Mexico, so we have no idea if or when other operators might take in consideration the possibility of offering us this device. We’ll just keep an eye on things and keep you updated!
