Of course, you can also expect the Moto G to ship with the flagship features such as Active Display and others that are found on the Moto X. Out of the box, the Moto G will come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but Motorola has promised that the device will receive Android 4.4 KitKat by January 2014. Other features on the handset include a removable back plate that can be replaced with customized back covers.
The 8GB Moto G will ship in the US for only $179 off-contract, with the 16GB version running for $199. Motorola is offering up a handset that not only will offer up a nice experience in terms of speed and performance but it will cost less than most smartphones on-contract.
