The phone also has a Water resistance rating IP52 which means it can withstand some splashes and light rain. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back.
Inside, the Motorola Moto G Pure has one MediaTek Helio G25 octa-core processor with 2 GHz. There is 3 GB of RAM and only 32 GB of onboard storage, but you can expand this storage up to an additional 512 GB using the microSD card slot.

The phone ships with Android 11, and Motorola says it will get an update to Android 12 at some point in the future. The phone will receive security updates for at least two years, either bi-monthly or quarterly.
