Moto G Forte (Moto G + Grip Shell) is official in Mexico

Moto G ForteThe recently leaked Moto G Forte smartphone is official, however it is not the rugged variant of Moto G that everyone was expecting but just a normal Moto G with Grip Shell pre-fitted. To remind you, Moto G Grip Shells have been available since the launch of Moto G and can be purchased by anyone, so Moto G Forte is just a marketing gimmick.

The Moto G Forte is now on sale in Mexico by telecom operator Nextel. There is no word on whether it will be released in any other markets, not that it is needed.

Moto G or Moto G Forte features a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.4, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 5MP rear camera. The phone also packs 1.3MP front camera, 8/ 16GB of internal storage and 2070 mAh battery.P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; }A:link { }

    I had tested Moto G, and it is water proof. More over it has internal battery, so my battery is also safe now.

    Sorry to say that it will be launched in latin america only as per the informer Evy. But Moto G is sold mainly in India. You can estimate its popularity in India by this that is ran out of stock with in 20 minutes of its launch. So I think company has to rethink on this topic, launched in India will be definitely helpful for them. Another factor of not launching of Moto forte in Inida may be that it will be priced above 20k, so indian market will turn either for Moto G or HTC Desire 310. Read More about Moto G

    One more thing I want to add that company is doing this means launching MOTO G Forte to compete with its rival HTC Desire 310. Because after Htc Desire 310 their sales are going down.

    Second point is that Moto G forte has to update his boot screen , because as said by Google that every android have to show a boot screen having written “powered by Android”. Google has taken this step after Galaxy S5 had updated his screen to “powered by android”

    Instead of making it rugged they had increased the screen size, it will be better for mobile phone market
