Moto G Forte is a Moto G with a grip-shell cover, launched in Mexico


Following a leak earlier this week, Motorola has made the Moto G Forte official and launched it in Mexico via local carrier Nextel. Unfortunately, if you were hoping for things like a microSD slot or improved specs, you will¬†be disappointed: the Moto G Forte is simply a Moto G that comes with a hard shell cover that’s designed to make it more rugged and basically offer a case out of the box, saving you the trouble of buying one yourself later on.

‘Forte’ is a derivative of the word ‘fuerte’, which means strong in Spanish and is the last thing we thought would affect what a company names its handset. The specs remain the same as before, which include a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.5-inch 720p display, 5-megapixel rear camera, 8/16GB of storage, a 2,100 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat. It’s priced at 600 MXN (~ $45) per month on a two-year contract – there’s no word on whether it’s headed to other markets any time soon, though given the not-so-impressive feature list, it’s not exactly a variant of the best value-for-money handset that anyone will be going crazy for.

  1. Since launch you could get one of the backshell replacements, and in many colors, here in El Norte. I have one on mine. The phone is already unofficially water resistant.
