Motorola Moto G Forte that was leaked last week has gone official in Mexico. It is just the Motorola Moto G smartphone with a grip shell as we expected. The Motorola Grip Shell for the Moto G was first launched in the U.S. earlier this year and it was launched in India along with the Moto G in February for Rs. 1099. Now it is available for Rs. 999. The Grip Shell has a rubber frame that protects the phone from bumps and drops.
Other than the bundled grip shell, the Moto G Forte has exactly similar features as the Moto G including a 4.5-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) edge-to-edge display at 329 ppi with Corning Gorilla Glass protection, 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 GPU, Android 4.4 (KitKat), 5MP rear camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording and a 1.3MP front-facing camera. The Moto G Forte comes only in 8GB variant.
The Motorola Moto G Forte is now available in Mexico from local operator Nextel Mexico on contract. It is not clear if it Motorola plans to launch it in other countries.
