Motorola G confirmed, will be announced on November 13
Motorola has officially confirmed that it’s going to launch a new smartphone called Moto G. Unfortunately, the company didn’t provide too many details, but we know that the handset (initially known as Moto DVX) will be fully unveiled next week, on November 13.
A sing-up page for the Moto G is already live here. The announcement date is mentioned in various languages, which probably means the smartphone will be released in many countries around the world – including in China, where a dual SIM version could be sold.
The Moto G will be introduced as a more affordable alternative to the Moto X (launched in August). Its unlocked price should be of around $200. If that’s the case, it will be free on contract in the US (it remains to be seen which carriers are going to offer it).
The new smartphone’s features reportedly include an HD display (of 4.5 or 4.7 inches), 8MP or 5MP rear camera with LED flash, quad-core Qualcomm processor (possibly an older generation, or a Snapdragon 200), 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, and a 1,950 mAh battery.
Although Google announced Android 4.4 KitKat last week, it looks like the Moto G will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean at launch. Of course, an update to KitKat will be available at some point.
