Over the past three months we’ve heard plenty of rumors saying that Motorola is working on a new budget-friendly Moto X variant, reportedly called the DVX. Today, a leaked upcoming magazine clipping has revealed that the upcoming device will be dubbed the Moto G and it will boast a number of outstanding features. The Moto G launch date is set for mid-November, but we’ll talk about that a bit later. First, let’s pay attention to the key features the handset will have.
Moto G Specs
As it has been revealed today, the Moto G specs will include:
- Display: 4.5-inch IPS edge-to-edge capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 720 (329ppi) resolution
- CPU: 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdagon Pro processor
- Camera: 5MP rear camera
- Storage: 8GB
- Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0 and HSPA+, no LTE
- OS: Android 4.3
Moto G will ship running Android 4.3, however it will be upgradable to Android 4.4 KitKat shortly after the Moto G official launch.
What is more, according to the attest FCC filing, the Moto G will boast a number of connectivity options, including GSM 850/900/1800/1900, EDGE Class 12, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, HSDPA 21.1Mbps (Category 14), HSUPA 5.76Mbps, Bluetooth Class 1, Version 4.0 LE+EDR, and 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi.
Generally, these are the specs we would expect to find in a mid-range Android phone. Those are not the features compatible with such high-end devices as the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One, but that is more than enough for a minimized version of the Moto X, which is not a high-end device itself.
Moto G Launch
Information about the Moto G launch remained a mystery for quite a long period of time. However, today we’ve received official data about the time when the handset will finally see the light of day. According to Motorola, the Moto G launch is set for November 13. The price tag of the upcoming device is still to be announced.
So, only one week is left till the moment we’ll be able to put hands on this all-new Android beast and check how it works on our own.
