Moreover, it also brings support for Turbo Charging, which Motorola claims to help this device in charging for 15 minutes to last as much as 6 hours. This mid-range smartphone also comes with IP67 certification, which means that it is water and dust resistant. If you can remember, the Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) is just splash resistant, and can’t protect the phone if it is dipped inside water.

It is also offering double data for Airtel customers who buy the Moto G Turbo edition tonight. Moreover, there’s an exchange offer with discounts of upto Rs. 6,000 when buying this smartphone.
