Motorola revived the Defy name last year and the modernized version of the flagship device from 2010, the Defy (2021), did quite well. The new Defy is technically a Moto G9/G9 Play, which the Bullitt Group has molded into a durable form, and this year’s Defy not only has durable armor, but 5G AND you will also get a satellite data connection.
CAT announced at the end of last year that it intends to be the first to present a device that provides a two-way satellite data connection, but it seems that Motorola is also in the running. Both models are marked by Bullitt, the question is which brand will first present a device using MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN (not developed for terrestrial network) chip. Bullitt’s satellite network is built and operated by Skylo, and the chipset with dedicated hardware is provided by MediaTek.

The fee for the service will be $4.99, but SOS messaging is free for the first year. Messages arriving via a satellite connection do not incur extra costs for the receiving party and Bullitt Satellite Messenger via app, from Android and iOS devices, they can also initiate the response via a traditional network connection in the direction of the device with a satellite connection, also free of charge; the message fee is covered by the subscription of the receiving party. We can expect the new Motorola Defy 5G in the first quarter of this year.
