Motorola just unveiled their newest entry, the Moto G, and it’s looking to be a game changer. Although the smartphone will surely be slammed by first world smartphone owners as under powered and undesirable, the affordably priced unit will finally bring the latest Google software and decent specs to many who otherwise could not afford it. The Moto G will come in two configurations, 8GB or 16GB of storage, and will be priced $179 and $199 respectively.
According to a tweet from Verizon Wireless, the Moto G will be available on Verizon in the first quarter of 2014. The tweet says ‘available on prepaid’ which is good news for those who don’t want one of Verizon’s spendy contracts.
The Moto G touts a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, a 5 megapixel camera, 1 GB of RAM, a 4.5 inch 720p HD display, and will come with 8 or 16GB of storage. The device will ship unlocked and untethered, all for $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model. The Moto G will ship with Android 4.3, and will receive Android 4.4 KitKat in January.
Will you be grabbing a Moto G when it arrives in January?
Stay tuned: Moto G with 4.5-inch edge-to-edge display coming to Verizon. Available on prepaid in early Q114. #MotoG
