There’s likewise a variation with 256 GB of storage, however we do not have rates for that, and at the time of composing it’s not noticeable on Motorola’s UK website, so it might not be extensively offered.
The Moto G200 isn’t anticipated to land in the United States or Australia– besides the UK it’s just validated for other parts of Europe and for Latin America.

That’s an even greater refresh rate than flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro(both of which peak at 120 Hz).
Some phones do have a refresh rate that high, however most of them are video gaming handsets– though the Motorola Edge 20 likewise has a 144 Hz revitalize rate, so this isn’t an absolutely brand-new thing for the business.

Specs and functions
One huge emphasize of the Moto G200 is its chipset, as it has a Snapdragon 888 Plus one. That’s the very best Android chipset offered in 2021 and it’s one that we’ve seen in couple of phones.
