Those of you who have used Samsung Dex, will be able to relate with Motorola’s new solution that works in a similar way. The feature is not official but was showcased during the Snapdragon Tech Summit. In the video, a Motorola handset was plugged into a monitor, giving a desktop style UI to the user. In the video, Sergio Bunac, Motorola Mobility president said "2021 will mark the 10th generation of Moto G, and nothing would make us prouder than bringing 800-series experiences to this family."

Not much is known about how this feature will work, but in the video we did see this feature being called as the ‘Desktop Mode’. It was shown while talking about multitasking and working on videos, artwork and documents on a large screen seamlessly. We are likely to see this coming to future Motorola flagships with Snapdragon 888 series processor. It may also be supported for some current-gen Moto handsets.

Motorola fans would remember that it introduced this concept way before Samsung Dex came into the picture. It all started with Motorola Atrix 4G, which connected with Motorola’s LapDock accessory to deliver a laptop like UI. But that might be way ahead of its time. However, with more eyes on the laptops and smartphones, the requirement for such a feature is more than before.

Meanwhile, Motorola launched its Moto G 5G in India, priced at 20,999. The company says that it is “100% made in India.” Some basic specs are 6.7-inch Max Vision HDR 10 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB built-in storage, 5000mAh battery with fast charging support, and three rear cameras with 48-megapixel + 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 2-megapixel macro sensor.
