2021 is looking set to be another big year for flagship-killing smartphones. Proving this theory, Samsung revealed its new A52 5G and A72 devices last month, which boast fluid displays and huge batteries on a very small budget. Next up, Motorola wants a piece of the mid-range action with the firm revealing its latest Moto G100.

This new Android-powered phone is packed with features with Motorola including a huge 6.7-inch display, which also gets a cinema-style 21:9 aspect ratio. And that’s not all, as it packs a 90Hz high-refresh rate, which makes scrolling through the morning news silky smooth and stutter-free.

Motorola is also boasting that its new display offers a 25 percent larger colour range and HDR10 certification which should make the visuals appear pin-sharp and crystal clear.

Spin the G100 around and you’ll find a quad-camera tucked inside the rear case with this snapper offering numerous photographic treats such as improved night shots and better close-ups thanks to its Macro Vision technology.

And the new moto g100 introduces something called Dual Capture mode which basically allows you to record footage using both the rear and front-facing selfie camera at the same time.

Boosting video even further is Audio Zoom technology. This uses advanced microphones to capture the audio of your subject while filtering out ambient noise and voices for a cleaner and more professional result.

Head under the hood, this phone is one of the first phones in the world to use the latest Snapdragon 870 5G Mobile Platform. This chip brings fast performance to the phone along with offering full access to speedy 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity.

Other extras include 8GB of memory, 128GB of built-in storage which can be boosted to 1TB when you add a microSD card. The moto g100 is also packed with a 5000 mAh battery that supports 20W TurboPower charging and there’s even a headphone port to plug in your favourite cans.

One final addition to the G100 is something called Ready For. This feature basically allows you to dock the phone with content then appearing on a big screen such as your telly. Motorola says Ready For will offer customers improved video calling along with being able to view apps, video content and games on a larger display.

If all of this sounds exciting then the new G100 will launch soon for £449.99 in the UK. That price even includes the new dock to facilitate Ready For.
